Many go with the intent to conquer, yet very few succeed. Ibiza has taken the world by storm since the early Nineties, when the emergence of house music brought tourism from near and far. The Balearic Island has resonated with partygoers and clubbing enthusiasts ever since.
As September falls upon the White Isle the tourism begins to pick up and the clubs open their doors for their last parties of the season. Here are the closing parties that must not be missed if you’re heading to Ibiza this autumn.
As of last year one of the most recognised clubs in the world closed its doors for the last time. Space was headed by Pepe Rosello, a major influence in Ibiza’s music scene. Once Space closed, the venue went under a transformation. The outcome – a new club called Hï Ibiza. Having faced a great deal of critics in the run up to opening, Hï has proved its worth, playing host to sell-out events such as Glitterbox and Black Coffee. You’d be foolish to miss the first ever closing party for the new club on the block.

This is set to be the party of the year.

Known for its extravagant price list and exclusive guest list, Ocean is a guilty pleasure for most of the Island’s visitors.

Past appearances include Darius Syrossian, Route 94 and Steve Lawler. Though the set times are yet to be released, it looks promising.

Arguably the biggest pool party on the Island belongs to Ushuaia, where there’s always an electric atmosphere.
