It’s somehow already September and the Ibiza season is unfortunately coming to a close! We’ve had a long hard look at the calendar and selected some of the best final debauched and glorious closing parties. Even if it means flying out for the night, sleeping on the beach and arriving back to the real world with a grin on your face, Pulse highly recommends you have one final pop at the Summer!
Thursday 20th September : Enter. at Space with Richie Hawtin, Paco Osuna, Ambivalent, Matador, Magda, Marc Houle, Nick Curly, Premiesku, Remo, Clark Warner, Maya Jane Coles and Hito. It's not unusual or exceptional to say Richie Hawtin has had a hell of a year, a long term contender Richie has had many 'hell of a year's. But this summer, his Enter. night has truly smashed the stratosphere of expectations and experimented with something new. Always one to dance to the beat of his own (rather large) drum, Richie has done Ibiza in his own way, a sake bar, dancers behind a screen, his own brand of unique techno. His constant interaction with fans through his Enter. pool and promo videos has meant that even those not munching disco biscuits and pumping their rave arm in the Balaerics have felt his presence on the island. The ingenois slash of creativity and genius promotion of doing Enter. Cadenza has further affirmed Richie's position as a man who is incredibly self assured and a bit of a demi god on the white isle.
Friday 21st of September : Ushuaïa Presents Sasha Closing with Sasha, Steve Bug, Scuba and Blond-ish. Ushuaia beach hotel is one of the most enjoyable clubbing experiences on the island, with its open air pool side vibe, Sasha will be closing up his weekly parties there this season with Poker Flat hero Steve Bug and Brit Scuba and the lovely Blonde girlies Blond:sh. Winner!
Monday 24th September: Circoloco at DC10 with Tania Vulcano, Seth Troxler, Maceo Plex, Ellen Allien, Dyed Soundorom, Davide Squillace, Matthias Tanzmann, Clive Henry, Art Department and DJ Wild. This is not the proper closing party which will be on 8th of October, but the line up has yet to be announced. Circoloco at DC10’s reputation as the only place to be on Monday has lasted for many years. With the line up not announced for the final Circo Loco of the Summer as we go to press, this absolutely monstrous line up from one of the final parties to go loco at this season includes Tania Vulcano, Seth Troxler, Dyed Soundorom, Art Department and Maceo Plex – definitely enough to get your rave arm twitching just at the site of the leaflet.
Tuesday 25th September : Together Closing Party at Amnesia with Chase & Status, Knife Party, Shy FX, Eric Prydz, Annie Mac, Jeremy Olander and Sub Focus. Together Amnesia brings an alternative slice of the more dubstep (or in Knife Party's case 'seizure music') and electro house offering to Ibiza revellers. With Annie Mac and longstanding heavyweights Chase & Status, Shy FX, and Eric Prydz footing the bill, its set to be a smash hit night in Amnesia.
Thursday 27th September : Hot Creations Presents Paradise Closing Party with Jamie Jones, Solomun, Cassy, Heidi, Craig Richards, Darius Syrossian, Three, Richy Ahmed, Miguel Campbell, Robert James, Russ Yallop. Paradise at DC10 has been another huge talking point of the season. With Jamie Jones serving up a fresh slice of Hot Creations pie once a week with stellar line ups, he brings the whole crew together for the final showdown in the worlds most famous warehouse. He has also got Heidi, Solomun and Cassy on board to add some extra zing. Not to be missed.

Space Closing Party with Modeselektor, Shackleton, Mambotour, SImian Mobile Disco, James Zabiela, Groove Armada, Hot Chip, The 2 Bears, Paul Woolford, PBR Streetgang, Jaymo & Andy George, Mr Doris and many more. We Love... is one of the most long standing nights on the island, dominating the Sunday scene for ten years. Groove Armada, James Zabelia, Jaymo & Andy and long standing curator of Mr Doris - this line up is one so long and so impressive that there most definitely is something for everyone, a closing party to remind all just why we love Space so very much!
Monday 1st October : Cocoon Closing Party with Sven Vath, Cassy, Paul Ritch, Ricardo Villalobos, Loco Dice, Raresh, Onur Ozer. Cocoon's closing party of course is headlined by longstanding tech house titan Loco Dice and godfather of techno Svan Vath. The ice cannons, giant white inflatables and 15 000 other tech hungry fiends ensure this will be a banger of an event.

Part 2: Bones, Ellesse, DJ Sneak, Heidi, H.O.S.H. Solomun, Todd Terry, Miguel Campbell and more to TBC. Without a doubt one of the biggest success stories of the season has to be Sankeys. Establishing itself as something a bit different from the superclubs, Sankeys has brought a sllice of British style underground to the White Isle. With Diynamic Neon Nights every Tuesday, Mulletover residencies, Fuse, Carnival and Viva Warriors Sankeys has managed to put on a must go to event almost every night of the week. Although Diynamic has sadly already had its closing parties, Fuse, Viva Warriors and Carnival are still happening but for our top pick of the closing parties its got to be this double event on the 9th and 10th of October. A two part mammoth line up comprising of some of the best acts that Sankeys has booked this season, including Diynamic boys H.O.S.H and Solomun, wondergirl Heidi, Fuse frontman Enzo, Leftroom head honcho Matt Tolfrey, rising stars Guti and Miguel Campbell and legend DJ Sneak. This final hurrah from Sankeys is not to be missed, we can't wait to see what they do next Summer.
