Ibiza Closing Parties: The Ultimate Playlist
The temperature is starting to drop in Ibiza but the island is still bursting with clubbers and sun seekers. Each autumn, as the summer draws to a close, you may hear friends and colleagues say ‘I’m going to the Ibiza closing parties’ and wondered ‘what’s the big deal?’.
The closing parties pull in the biggest crowds of the year simply because they mark the end of the summer season. The parties, often outdoors, are a place where huge name DJs play the songs that defined the summer. For years, revellers have flooded to Ibiza for that one final moment that they can carry through to the winter.
October 2016 brings with it the final closing party of Space Ibiza, 27 years after its inception. Arguably the most iconic club on the island, the venue gained its 5-star reputation amongst clubbers because of its 22-hour hedonistic Sunday marathons. Some of the most respected DJs in the world including Pete Tong, Carl Cox and Erick Morillo all began their careers from the DJ booth (behind the bar). Famously, as the dance floor filled, planes would roar over the famous ‘Terraza’ to massive cheers from the crowd. The final Closing Fiesta on Oct 2nd will be a sad affair but one that will live long in the memory of everyone who attends.
In celebration of the history and memories held at Space, Mark Brown respected DJ, label boss and founder of Cr2 Records has selected 10 of his ultimate Space Ibiza floor fillers from the last 27 years to make us feel better.
This superb selection of tracks is the perfect playlist to get you in the mood for the annual closing parties. You can also catch Mark Brown DJing at Space for the final farewell as well as releasing the last ever Space Compilation Mix on his own Cr2 label.
