Sunday October 6th, 4.30pm. As the sky gets clearer on Platja D’en Bossa, thousands of clubbers start to invade the southern Ibiza town and walk toward the same direction: Space Ibiza Closing Fiesta. So, from early hours, a long queue started to take shape in front of the legendary Ibiza nightclub, predicting a Closing Fiesta that we would last to forget. And it could not have been otherwise, after a season as spectacular as we lived.
The outdoor parking stage, hosted once again by Ultra Ibiza, offered an impressive production, amazing lighting effects and Space Ibiza Funktion One sound system. Remo opened the stage as the crowd was taking place on the parking lot. At 5pm and with a highly motivated audience, Paco Osuna took control of the decks showing again his talent behind the turntables while emanating energy and positive vibes; until Gaiser took his place making it higher than ever with his usual power. Right after his live came the first big moment of the evening: Richie Hawtin’s performance. The Canadian artist offered an epic set that putted the crowd upside down during its two hours until it was the turn for one of the usual at Space Ibiza; the one and only Carl Cox. The Tuesday nights host at Space Ibiza used his charisma and flawless technique to dominate the thousands of clubbers that were frenetically dancing on the Ultra Ibiza Stage.
The Main Room opened its doors at 9pm with Uto Karem, followed by Remo. Both artists offered sets according to the expectation level an event like this deserves and left the dance floor very excited for Josh Wink’s midnight set. Around 1.30am came the turn for Guti to play a live performance in which the Argentinian expanded himself high and clear, perfectly preparing the room for one of this summer’s revelation: Pleasurekraft. His set captivated the audience for one hour and a half thanks to his deep and groovy sound. At this time, the room was ready for the final sprint of the night, by the hand first of Nina Kraviz and followed by Nicole Moudaber. The Russian left the bar very high and did not disappoint the thousands of clubbers gathered on the dance floor. At 6am, Nicole Moudaber took control of the decks and brightly closed the Main Room.
The Sunset Terrace gave us the chance to see a lot of great names of the electronic music scene, such as Clandestin resident Paul Reynolds, Olivier Weiter and Mykris representing Ultra Music or Space Ibiza residents Camilo Franco and Danny Marquez. We also had the chance to discover Gelab, a national young promise whose name will be eared again soon. Around midnight, Ibiza Calling’s resident Ramon Castells took his turn in the DJ booth and offered a 6 hours set full of dance floor killers and fun. At this time appeared Mr. Doris, in charge of closing the Sunset Terrace.
The Salon, sponsored by DJ Mag, was the place to dance to funky and slower rhythms by the hand of Blackhall & Bookless and Paul Reynolds.
Premier étage is another open air room where the audience could the music of Charlie Hedges, Ian Blevins and the residents Ramon Castells, Jonathan Ulysses and Marco Loco.
The Terrace was also a must see room, as it counted with the performances of Yaya, Kehakuma resident Javi Bora, Shaun Reeves, Edu Imbernon, Reboot and the most expected performance of the night: The back to back between Carl Cox and Nic Fanciulli, the surprise guest to the party that marks the end of the musical season on the white island. The two friends, who have shared booth a few times this season at Carl Cox’s Revolution, ridiculously packed the Terrace and offered a set at the height of the expectations that carried on until very late in the morning.
Space Ibiza would like to thank the crowd for its devotion and passion during the whole season 2013. Thank you for choosing us! We will come back next year stronger than ever. Meanwhile, stay tuned for upcoming news about on worldwide tour and our franchises openings.
