Ibiza 2019 closing party round-up | Part one

The pick of the parties from 1 to 22 September.

Whoa! We can't quite believe it ourselves, but it's September already. That means the home straight is in sight. Like every summer, the time has flown by (and it tends to when you're having fun).

As September arrives, so do the best crowds and parties of summer. Already some residencies begin to finish, while others have programmed some of the most eye-catching line-ups during this period.

Plus, there are a few special one-offs that are definitely worth taking into consideration.

Any trance fans out there? We know you guys can feel neglected from time to time. Well, September is your month to, erm, “shine”.

Part two - featuring the season's remaining closing parties from 23 September onwards - will be published in mid-September. Keep an eye out for that.

Let's take a closer look at what's happening in the next three weeks.

Cocoon 20 presents Sven Väth all night long | Underground Ibiza | Sunday 8 September

One for the history books. Has there ever been a DJ with the international status of Sven Väth to play Underground? The Cocoon talisman plays all night long to continue the Cocoon20 celebrations. As if you needed telling, Papa thrives in these extended sets.

A rare opportunity to catch a festival headliner under the radar at Underground.

IDOL | Eden | Monday 9 September

IDOL closes at Eden on 16 September, but the week before that is the final chance to catch UK rave icons Orbital on Ibiza this summer. The Hartnoll brothers will sure to be giving an end of season worthy send-off.

Cocoon20 | Ushuaïa | Friday 13 September

A standing ovation is surely due for team Cocoon and its stunning 20th anniversary programme. Truly the gift that keeps on giving to any Cocooners who find themselves on the island this summer.

Legendary electro-pop band Kraftwerk - often dubbed the grandfathers of electronic music - make their Ibiza debut at Ushuaïa for the second concert-sized show of the celebrations. Sven Väth and Seth Troxler support.

Magdalena presents Shadows | Cova Santa | Friday 13 September

On the same date, Magdalena's Cova Santa residency draws to a close after a really successful season. Once again, big brother Solomun is her special guest at Shadows. Much like his last visit back in July, we expect this to reach capacity early.

Did we mention entry is free? Get down early to avoid disappointment or long queues.

WooMoon Extra Date | Cova Santa | Sunday 15 September

Despite already having held its official closing party back in August, WooMooN returns to Cova Santa for an extra date in mid-September - coinciding with the next full moon, of course. Red Axes and Monolink are the big names, with added help from Valentin Heudo.

Together closing party | Amnesia | Tuesday 17 September

Bass dealers Together continue to take care of business on Amnesia's terrace on Tuesdays. Offering something that no other promoter does in an Ibiza superclub, you can always guarantee an alternative experience at Together.

Drum & bass heavyweights Chase & Status, Andy C, Wilkinson and Sub Focus are all set to play this riddim filled extravaganza.

RESISTANCE closing party | Privilege | Tuesday 17 September

RESISTANCE kept its summer campaign short yet sweet, but what a season its been. It only seems like yesterday we were attending the opening party. Week nine draws 2019 to a close for Ultra's techno regiment, with headline roles for Carl Cox and Adam Beyer - plus a stack of killer talent on support duties.

Heart Factory presents Do Not Sit | HEART Ibiza | Tuesday 17 September

Behrouz's Miami export returns to HEART Ibiza for the fourth and final instalment. Previous parties have seen the likes of Dubfire, Rodriguez Jr. and Seth Schwarz join our host. Dreamy and melodic, expect a journey on the dance floor.

All Day I Dream | Cova Santa | Friday 20 September

Lee Burridge's dreamy house party season lands back at Cova Santa for the last time in 2019. We couldn't imagine a better open-air location for this soundtrack. Lee will be joined by ADID regular label contributors YoKoO and Roy Rosenfeld for the finale.

Armin van Buuren SOLO | Ushuaïa | Friday 20 September

Dutch trance master AvB returns to his old stomping ground Ushuaïa for an all-day affair - SOLO. Hï Ibiza's Wednesday night host crosses the road for some daytime action.

ONE NIGHT STAND | DC-10 | Friday 20 September

Game Over's third birthday party - and also the last of three ONE NIGHT STAND outings at DC-10 in 2019. No Coxy this time around, but Better Lost Than Stupid are in tow. Plus there are sets from Dyed Soundorom, Hector and Traumer.

Toolroom closing party | Eden | Sunday 22 September

After a five year hiatus, Toolroom returned to a weekly residency on the island in 2019 - San Antonio's Eden being the perfect fit. It has felt like a family reunion each and every week, centred around bright, young resident Maxinne - alongside powerful guests on rotation.

Check out our recent feature where Toolroom DJs picked their tracks of the summer. Remember, Sundays are for family.


Trance fans, remember how we said at the top that September is the month for you? Well, you've been patient enough. The trance actions starts this week, coming thick and fast.

SHINE Ibiza | Eden | Thursday 5 September

SHINE - the collaborative project between Paul Van Dyk and Nick Ferguson - actually closes on 19 September. However, owing to the large trance contingent that's about to invade the island - we reckon this week's party will likely be its busiest of the whole summer.

Residents PvD and Aly & Fila are joined by Jordan Suckley for what is sure to be the official start to 2019's Ibiza Trance Weekend.

Captured Festival | Benimussa Park | Friday 6 - Saturday 7 September

Trance used to have a strong footing on Ibiza. While it may not be as popular as it once was, the genre still commands a committed, die-hard global audience - and lots of them descend on the island for this weekend to experience Captured Festival.

Adding something different to the programme of Benimussa Park's serene outdoor venue, Ferry Corsten headlines with support from Menno De Jong, The Thrillseekers and Giuseppe Ottaviani live.

Gareth Emery presents Laserface | Amnesia | Sunday 8 September

The trance invasion culminates in a special one-off show at Amnesia this Sunday. Gareth Emery - a former regular at Cream Ibiza - returns with his Laserface concept. The live A/V show features dozens of lasers choreographed with Emery's productions

Support comes from Sander van Doorn on the night, in what is set to be a feast for the senses.

Lots to be getting on with for the time being. If you arrive after 22 September, look out for part two of our closing party season round-up towards the middle of the month.

Tickets and full line-ups for all parties featured and more can be found at our party calendar.
