Pick of the Week: 8th - 14th September

There’s no sign of any pre-closings lull this week on Ibiza.

Circo Loco at DC10
Monday 8th September

DC10's longest running party is back for another instalment on Monday and as usual, the line-up is out of this world. Every week Circo Loco seems to outdo itself not only with the quantity of DJs featuring at the party, but also with the calibre and profile of artists that turn up to play every week. This week is a continuation of that pattern, with a programme that will make even the usual last-minute ravers want to get to DC as early as possible. Davide Squillace, Maceo Plex and Tale of Us are all on the bill for next week alongside Crosstown Rebels boss Damian Lazarus, Sasha, Kerri Chandler and many more…

Tribal Sessions at Sankeys
Wednesday 10th September

In my opinion one of the best parties to arrive to the white isle this year, Darius Syrossian's Sankeys shindig has gone from strength to strength this year not merely for unique line-ups but because of its alternative music philosophy. Week after week we've seen some esteemed artists delve deep into their record boxes, taking the crowd back to the roots of house music. This week the party deals directly with the foundations of house music, having invited Detroit legend and ‘Strings of Life' brainchild Derrick May and fellow Motor City techno pioneer Jeff Mills to headline the basement in what look set to be another massive Wednesday night in the season calendar. And it's not just like Jeff and Derrick are coming to play a wee set - it's a world exclusive 4 hour back to back session that's planned for that night! Alongside the two will feature resident Darius Syrossian, Just Be (Bushwacka), Shlomi Aber and more. See you in the Basement!

From 22:00
- Darius Syrossian
- Derrick May
- Greg Vickers
- Jeff Mills
- Jozef K
- Just Be
- Mr G (live)
- Shlomi Aber

Armin Van Buuren Pres. A State of Trance Closing Party at Ushuaïa Beach Hotel
Thursday 11th September

Ushuaïa's first ever trance party has had a pretty impressive first season on the white isle and finally, after eleven huge Thursday afternoons at the pool area of the prestigious hotel the party comes to a close. If you're in Ibiza in September but aren't here for the bulk of the closing parties, this is an ideal opportunity to check out the unbelievable atmosphere that Ibiza closings have to offer and get a piece of the action before thousands fly out for the final week of the season. Joining resident trance superstar Armin Van Buuren will be Andrew Rayel, Alex M.O.R.P.H. and Mark Sixma. The party starts at 5pm and finishes around midnight, so even after you leave Ushuaïa you've got a whole night ahead of you and several great parties happening virtually on the doorstep of the hotel, making this one the ideal day party to check out this week!

17:00 - 23:59
- Armin Van Buuren
- Andrew Rayel
- Alex M.O.R.P.H.
- Mark Sixma

Placebo at This is Hard Rock Hotel
Friday 12th September

This one is exciting to say the least, namely for two reasons: firstly, because Placebo are the first proper rock band to grace Hard Rock Hotel since the venue opened at the beginning of this season and secondly, because the party will take place at the Hard Rock Hotel and not the much larger setting of Ushuaïa's pool area. In Ibiza it's good to get a bit of live music in your system and occasionally break away from the usual you hear on the island (coming from someone who loves electronic music), and chances like this don't come round every day. With Ibiza Rocks live music programme coming to a close in the next few weeks as with other parties across the island, there are less opportunities to see bands you love play in Ibiza until next year, and who doesn't like Placebo?

20:00 - 23:59
- Placebo

Emerging Ibiza – End of Year Finale at Ocean Beach
Sunday 14th September

Emerging Ibiza something a bit different for the end of the season. Ocean Beach is known for it's fantastic pool layout and sunbeds scattered all around the venue (including built into the pool!) and on Sunday 14th, the venue plays host to the mixing talents of Circus Recordings head honcho Yousef – not someone you see play in San Antonio on a regular basis. Joining him will be DJ Andy Baxter, who has had sets at multiple parties around the island this season and has persistently gone above and beyond the call of duty of being a warm-up DJ. Alongside the two will be Tom Crane and as of yet unannounced special guests – not bad for a one-off party!

12:00 - 23:59
- Yousef
- Andy Baxter
- Tom Crane
- Special Guests TBA
