Wow, today is the last day of September and we’re officially almost at the very end of the season. The last five months seem to have gone by in the blink of an eye and now we’ve only got a week or two left before everyone packs up and heads for home to hibernate for the winter. But, before we do that, we’ve got the not too small matter of a couple of full week’s worth of closing parties to go to so let’s not get too emotional about going home just yet. If you’re on the island and wondering what exactly is going down this week, we’ve put together a little guide to what closing parties are happening, just for you.
First to Amnesia, where tonight Sven Väth’s legendary Cocoon party returns to the club to sign off on its 20th season in Ibiza. What a landmark year it has been for Cocoon and things won’t slow down at all tonight with another stacked lineup to see out their schedule. Sven Väth and Peggy Gou will be bringing the fire to the Terrace all night, while the Club Room tunes will be supplied by Adam Beyer, Ilario Alicante and ANNA.
