Ibiza 2023 closing party guide | October

The last run from 1 October to 15 October.

October is upon us and with it comes the final volley of parties. Well, for summer at least. There will still be a few interesting things happening at weekends and especially over the New Year period. But I digress. You're here to learn about what's happening imminently.

As I type this, the weather is simply perfect. Consistently sunny, yet not overbearing in temperature and that bit cooler of a night. It's set up perfectly for a last-minute getaway if you want some of the best parties of the year, combined with some beach time.

This is the last chance saloon. Let's dive in.

Residency closing parties

Glitterbox | Hï Ibiza

Glitterbox | Hï Ibiza | Sunday 1 October

As we seem to say each year, Glitterbox grew in popularity in 2023. Rammed every week and increasingly attracting a younger crowd, it's one of Hï Ibiza's best parties. Best believe the glitterball-shimmering closing party is going to be a mega affair.

After each playing solo earlier this summer, Kenny Dope and Louie Vega reunite as Masters At Work. Other certifiable House legends on the line-up include Groove Armada and The Shapeshifters. For new school heads, Cody Currie and Gina Breeze keep it fresh and present.


Franky Wah presents SHÈN | Club Chinois

Franky Wah presents SHÈN | Club Chinois | Sunday 1 October

Franky Wah going up against the big guns on Sunday with SHÈN Ibiza was not without risk. With that in mind, we're pleased to report he rose to the challenge and made Club Chinois' Sunday nights a fantastic new option. Admirably, the line-ups were daring and ambitious.

Although Franky is billed as playing all night long, we can now reveal that Sasha, Artche and Trutopia will join him throughout the night for some sporadic back-to-back action.


ABODE | Eden Ibiza

ABODE | Eden | Sunday 1 October

ABODE caps its return to the island after a three-year hiatus with a closing party that celebrates the core of its identity. Resident DJs GW Harrison, Will Taylor and Will Wiley provide the backbone, with guests George Smeddles and Viviana Casanova completing the line-up.

Eden has been the ideal fit to relaunch one of the modern era's most loved parties. Tech House heaven.


D4 D4NCE | O Beach Ibiza by Mario Pinta

D4 D4NCE | O Beach | Monday 2 October

Another new party for summer 2023, D4 D4NCE brought some of O Beach's biggest ever line-ups. That trend shows no sign of disappearing for the closing party, where Roger Sanchez, Secondcity and Paul Reynolds supply the House anthems at poolside.


Flower Power | Pacha Ibiza by Raul Sanchez

Flower Power | Pacha | Monday 2 October

Decades roll from one to the next and the island undergoes vast changes, some that leave past visitors incredulous, whilst the new generation laps it all up. This is the circle of life. One party that weathers the storms of change, however, is Pacha's permanently popular Flower Power.

Victor Nebot, Sergio Vicedo and Laeet welcome you for one last dose of free love and happiness. Don't forget your daisy chain.


Amnesia Ibiza by Renata Subic

PIV Ibiza | Amnesia | Tuesday 3 October

Prunk's PIV Records has spent most of the campaign at Cova Santa. However, especially for its closing party, it makes the move to Amnesia. In doing so, PIV can accommodate considerably more people, thus underlining the popularity of this reduced House sound emanating from Amsterdam. If you need any more impetus, the one and only Kerri Chandler headlines.

East End Dubs, Kolter (DJOKO) and Kellie Allen also play.


The Martinez Brothers | Hï Ibiza

The Martinez Brothers | Hï Ibiza | Tuesday 3 October

Crowd-pulling stars of social media The Martinez Brothers end their Hï Ibiza residency with an extended set. Cuttin' Headz comrade Jesse Calosso plays early doors in The Theatre. Next door in the Club Room, Paco Osuna plays all night long for Now Here.

No-wHere else to be, by our reckoning.


CAMELPHAT | Pacha Ibiza by Alex Caballero

CAMELPHAT | Pacha | Tuesday 3 October

CAMELPHAT were sworn into Tuesdays at Pacha with a point to prove and, boy, did they prove it. There's little doubt they are superstars on the world stage now. Screw-faced magician Stephan Bodzin joins them for a night of melodic and pumping dance music.

Expect lots of material from CAMELPHAT's new album Spiritual Milk, as well as plenty of tracks that you will know and love. Just don't ask for Cola!


House In Paradise | O Beach Ibiza

House In Paradise | O Beach | Wednesday 4 October

House In Paradise switched from Mondays to Wednesdays this summer, but the move didn't dent its popularity.

Almost every week sold out, as HIP continued to be an O Beach hit. The promoters even handed our very own Lissy Lü her first announced set. For the closing party, Damon Hess, DAYL, Lucy Jane, Perry Martin and Jamie Love are all back to spin the very best sun-drenched tunes.


Paradise | Amnesia Ibiza

Paradise | Amnesia | Wednesday 4 October

Paradise made an instant impact when it moved to Amnesia last summer. This summer, it built on that success by establishing itself as the club's number one party. Packed every single week. Jamie Jones leads Joseph Capriati, Hot Since 82, Marshall Jefferson, Richy Ahmed and Alisha, as The Night of the Jaguar draws to a close. Doors open early at 21:00 for this one.

Why not make a full day of it? Sail with Lost In Ibiza boat party first and receive discounted entry to Amnesia afterwards.


Bedouin present Saga | Pacha Ibiza by Raul Sanchez

Bedouin present Saga | Pacha | Wednesday 4 October

2023 appears to be the year that Bedouin settled into a sound - faster than the one they had made their name with, but one which felt custom-made for Pacha. Saga delivered great guests and drew an international crowd to Wednesday nights.

The finale with WhoMadeWho and Guy Laliberté is sure to be an enthralling last chapter.


ON111 | O Beach | Thursday 5 October

Spoony, Cameo and co. complete another summer of Garage-edged, sun-filled days at O Beach with ON111. If you're not "on this", then you should be. MORE INFO | BUY TICKETS

Afterlife Day & Night | Ushuaïa & Hï Ibiza

Afterlife Day & Night | Ushuaïa & Hï Ibiza | Thursday 5 October

Just as it did in 2022, Afterlife ends summer with a day and night double-header stopping at both Ushuaïa and Hï Ibiza. Joining Tale Of Us at Ushuaïa are Adriatique, Argy and 8Kays. Later on the opposite side of the road, Ben Klock, Marcel Dettmann, Kölsch, Kevin de Vries, Innellea, Colyn, Kobosil, Chris Avantgarde, Alfa Romero and more all participate.

To boot, MRAK (Karm from Tale Of Us) debuts his new audio-visual show We Don't Follow on Ibiza during the daytime leg. That will be out-of-this-world kind of special.


Solomun | Destino by Adolf Comes

Solomun | Destino | Thursday 5 October

Pacha may be Solomun's primary domain, but his outside dates at Destino are special all the same. With the panoramic views from Cap Martinet out to Formentera and the Dalt Vila skyline, magic just comes easy to conjure.

Johannes Brecht and Angel Linde warm things up for this one, but it's all about the big man.


NiiWA | Club Chinois | Thursday 5 October

Produced by Ritual Collective, NiiWA booked a diverse range of underground selectors to play absorbing, melodic dance music. The programming had a real Berlin feel to it.

The dystopic, decaying city concept was at odds with the plush interior backdrop of Club Chinois and the Ibiza Marina neighbourhood. Yet somehow these contrasts made it work. Marcus Worgull and Robag Wruhme are in the mix for the closing party.


Pure Pacha presents Robin Schulz | Pacha Ibiza by Raul Sanchez

Pure Pacha presents Robin Schulz | Pacha | Thursday 5 October

Robin Schulz was a sensation at the helm of Pure Pacha this summer.

Our German host was in top form since mid-May, pulling in a glam and cosmopolitan crowd to Thursday nights. DJs Sam FeldtRiton and Emily Nash are all part of the action at the closing of this most Pacha of parties. Fancy one last bite of the cherry? Go on, be a devil!


Summerians | Las Dalias & Akasha | Friday 6 October

Summerians draws its first summer at Las Dalias to a close. Delum, Natiivo and ARKADYAN are the names Kintar has invited for the closing party. Expect the extended tribe to be out in force for this one, which starts in the garden at 20:00 before moving to the club inside at 23:30.


Pablo Fierro's We're Here | Club Chinois

Pablo Fierro's We're Here | Club Chinois | Friday 6 October

Pablo Fierro has proven his worth to Club Chinois this summer, turning Friday night's We're Here into the nightspot's best-performing night. In many ways, he is the embodiment of what the club stands for: he may not yet be a household name, but he guarantees incredible music and a memorable dancefloor experience.

Percussionist Martin Viana is back alongside him, as well as guests Manoo and Deer Jade.


Soul Heaven | O Beach | Saturday 7 October

Soul Heaven shuts down another summer of effortless Saturdays at O Beach with a guest invitation for Sy Sez to play. Weekly resident DJs Jamie Love, Lucy Jane and Grant Collins are also on hand to send pool dwellers and sun-worshippers to heavenly highs.


Woomoon | Cova Santa

Woomoon | Cova Santa | Sunday 8 October

Woomoon continued its role as Cova Santa's flagship party in 2023.

There's little debate, that if you want to see the hillside venue firing on all cylinders, Woomoon is the one that elevates its vibrancy. From tarot readers to the acoustic Resonance area, and dazzling stage show to sustainable food trucks, Woomoon harbours an abundance of energy.

Bora Uzer, Medusa Odyssey and Temple Maze & Isadora are amongst the live acts, while Parallelle, Tanika and Valentín Huedo all DJ.


Pyramid | Amnesia Ibiza by PHRANK

Pyramid | Amnesia | Sunday 8 October

Amnesia's Techno temple Pyramid disappears into the sands of time after a final session on 8 October.

Main man Enzo Siragusa is locked in for the closing, while Ricardo Villalobos b2b Luciano is always good value. The Main Room goes hard, as a trio of Techno's leading ladies hammer it out. Deborah de Luca, Lilly Palmer and Onyvaa will get your pulses racing and blood pumping. Might we get a Carry On the day after??? Here's hoping.


The Ritual with Anané & Louie Vega | Club Chinois | Wednesday 11 October

Husband and wife tandem Anané & Louie Vega's return to Ibiza Marina has been a warming love story. From David Morales and Derrick Carter, to Moodymann and Todd Terry, The Ritual has seen A-class guests of the highest order.

For the closing party, The Blessed Madonna makes her one and only Ibiza appearance of 2023 having taken the summer off touring. Welcome back Marea!


Venue closing parties

Eden x Outset Closing Party | Thursday 5 October

Eden calls last orders on the dancefloor after one of its most diverse summer programmes yet. House, Drum & Bass, R&B, Trance - you name it, the San Antonio hotspot has it covered.

Taking full advantage of the epic Void Incubus Gold sound system, Eden teams up with Hard House Tuesday residents Outset for an explosive Closing Party.  999999999, blk. and LaLa (pictured above) lead the charge in the main room, whilst in room two (Next) Reboot DJs bring the noise.

Also taking place this week are WILDCHILD, ABBA Disco and Isla Blanca. You can expect more off-season parties announced soon.


The Vortex | Ushuaïa & Hï Ibiza | Saturday 7 October

Energy mass The Vortex shuts down sister venues Ushuaïa and Hï Ibiza in a day-to-night rave-a-thon, culminating in almost 24-hours of non-stop partying. Now, that's how it's done!

From 13:00, open-air Ushuaïa gets down to the sounds of underground elitists ANOTR, Bicep (DJ set), Kilimanjaro and Peggy Gou,whose smash hit (It Goes Like) Nanana is a certified Ibiza summer anthem. Skepta is also on hand, while TSHA and Airrica go back-to-back.

When 23:00 hits, the party continues across the road with a splendour of DJ talent and off-the-scale production. Damian Lazarus b2b Seth Troxler, Oliva Andrea b2b Vintage Culture, Adam Beyer, Paco Osuna, Bonobo and The Martinez Brothers are just a handful of the tastemakers on closing duties for DJ Mag's world's number one club.


Lío Ibiza Closing Party | Sunday 8 October

Dig out your glitziest garms, Lío Ibiza has one last party extravaganza in store for its summer schedule. Calling on in-demand South African artist THEMBA and London-based DJ and producer Badbox for a dazzling Closing Party

World-class selectors, flamboyant cabaret, high-end dining and stunning views from the Ibiza Marina, what's not to love?

You can also catch the final summer dates for Toy RoomBâzâr, Vintage and Pandora in the nights before.


Pacha & Destino closing weekend | 13 to 15 October

Fifty year is a monumental milestone and Pacha and its affiliated venues have crammed half a century's worth of parties into this landmark year. In equally majestic form, it starts its closing weekend with the Music On marathon. Luciano and wAFF support Marco Carola at Destino in the evening, before we finish at Pacha itself with Carola, Paco Osuna and Cloonee.

Pre-sale for both legs are long since sold out, so well done you if you got tickets.

Saturday 14 October it's the turn of capped crusader Claptone for the final Masquerade of summer. Solardo and David Penn are his guests.

Last but especially not least, the very last big party of season 2023 falls to Solomun on Sunday 15 October. Did you think he'd bow out quietly? Not a chance. Saving a biggie for the conclusive episode, Dixon is the final +1 and we anticipate this one going late into the morning.


Rewind & Replay | Club Chinois | Friday 13 October

Unlucky for some, but not for Club Chinois. With a second successful season firmly under its belt, it toasts to the summer with swanky Rewind & Replay. The vivacious Honey Dijon headlines on this night, playing alongside Andy Baxter and Clint Lee.

You can be certain that grandeur awaits at Club Chinois on closing night, although for locals and winter visitors, it continues with exclusive late-season parties until 4 November.


Amnesia Ibiza by PHRANK

Amnesia Closing Party | Saturday 14 October

Save the date, this is big one.

Amnesia's Closing Party never fails to go down as one of those unforgettable nights where you simply had to be there. From 22:00 until late, put your party endurance to test. It's in those final hours where the sunrise seeps in through the roof, where pure Ibiza magic takes place.

Across the Terazza and Main Room, international headliners and underground moguls are cast to satisfy the guaranteed mass of ravers. Jamie Jones b2b Joseph Capriati, Nina Kraviz, Charlotte de Witte, Danny Howard and Deborah de Luca are amongst the confirmed names.
