Closing Parties 2020 have begun!

C losing Parties in Ibiza signal the end of a long, long summer season that began life in May. The summer may be drawing to a close as the temperature drops, but the parties at this time of year are the hottest on the island. In this guide we’ll tell you what to expect from the Closing Parties, our recommendations for 2020, and the Closing Parties already confirmed for this year.

Ibiza & Coronavirus 2020

As with most parts of the world, Ibiza has been in lockdown as a result of the Coronavirus pandemic. The Spanish government’s de-escalation plan has been taking place over several phases. While thankfully the strictest lockdown measures have passed, there is no doubt it is going to take some time to get back to normality.

The fact is, every person, business, and country is in unchartered waters at the moment. There is no doubt that Coronavirus is drastically affecting the Ibiza 2020 clubbing season 😢  Some clubs are simply writing this year off, to come back stronger in 2021.

The Government has stated there will be a tourism season this summer, with its 14 day quarantine period ending from June 21st [source]. However, just because Ibiza is open, doesn’t mean its clubs and nightlife will be.

We now know that Hï, Ushuaïa, Privilege and Pacha will not host any parties in 2020 at all 🙁

Ibiza Rocks & O Beach opened their doors on July 1st. It’s not going to be their scheduled summer season parties with any of the famous DJs you’d normally expect. Dancefloors will make way for table service, so you can enjoy some laidback drinks by the pool, whilst respecting social distancing, at both venues.

There has been talk of a #moveyourspring campaign to extend the Ibiza season in 2020, meaning Closing Parties would take place in November. It’s important to note that this was initiated by Ibiza hotel groups. No clubs have announced that they will be moving Closing Parties to November. DC10 co-owner Antonio Carbonaro strongly denied this was part of their plans in an Instagram post which has since been deleted.

If you have purchased your club tickets from Ibiza Spotlight already, you are covered by their cancellation policy. You will get a 100% refund for any parties that are cancelled.

Ibiza Spotlight are updating this forum thread with the very latest news and updates. Each of the events on our own Club Calendar has a status banner to let you know whether it is currently scheduled to go ahead, postponed, or cancelled.

You can also sign up to our newsletter and we’ll let you know if and when any clubs are able to open in 2020 🤞

There are bigger issues going on in the world than our future holidays right now. Let’s look out for each other and pray for a return to normality soon ❤️

One thing is for sure: when this is all over, there’s going to be one hell of a party. Stay safe.

When do Ibiza Closing Parties take place?

There’s often some confusion about when exactly Ibiza Closing Parties take place.

In previous years, most Closing Parties would take place by the end of September, before the season finished.  Nowadays however, some Closing Parties won’t happen until the second week of October. Take Circoloco at DC10, whose final party was on the 7th October last season. Solomun’s +1 closing party was even later, on the 13th October. Just as Opening Parties seem to start earlier in May each season, Closing Parties seem to end later every year.

If this trend continues, Ibiza Closing Parties 2020 will take place between the 16th September – 18th October.

It’s also important to understand that there isn’t any official set time when Closing Parties take place.

Each club and promoter will decide when their own Closing Party is hosted. So whilst you might find yourself in Ibiza in the middle of September, not every party you go to will necessarily be a Closing Party. In fact, some might have already taken place by then! Of the 87 confirmed Closing Parties in 2019, the first took place on the 18th August (Warriors at Octan), and the last was the 13th October (Solomun+1 at Pacha). That’s a pretty wide timespan!

So if you’re going specifically to Ibiza for Closing Parties, make sure you plan ahead.

When is the best time for Ibiza Closing Parties?

If you want to catch the widest choice of Closing Parties, the best time to go is the week between the 28th September – 5th October.

Looking at last season, there were no less than 33 to choose from that week, with 7 parties taking place alone on Friday the 4th October to choose from 🙌

Is September a good time to visit Ibiza?

For us, Closing Parties in September and October are the best time to go to Ibiza. There are fewer people around, giving you more breathing space in general. It’s easier to get taxis, book a last minute restaurant or day-bed, and the island feels more relaxed as the off-season approaches. You’ll encounter a lot of workers who are looking forward to some deserved time off during the winter!

If you’re going to Ibiza to catch any of the Closing Parties in 2020, you’re in for a treat.

You’re also more likely to find cheaper deals to Ibiza during the Closing Parties. Why? Because the peak time for tourism in Ibiza is July and August. Hotels and villas become more affordable at the end of September and beginning of October. Take for example one of our favourite hotels, Es Vivé in Figuertas. The average price during peak season for a room is £300, but this drops down to just £85 in early October – that’s over 70% cheaper! If you’re in a larger group, you might find some great last minute Villa deals via Ibiza Spotlight at this time too. Most hotels will close for the season between mid to end October, and will lower prices to get as many bookings possible before that happens.

The same goes for flights. A return flight from London to Ibiza in September costs £76, vs £114 in August. In October the average drops even lower to £48 return.

The weather is another factor for coming during Closing Parties. By the end of September the average temperature on the island drops to 24°C. It’s noticeably cooler than the 30°C average in August, but it makes for more comfortable dancing at day parties 😎

The most important reason to go for Closing Parties, is the parties themselves! You’ll get the best DJ line upssurprise guests, and production value no matter where you go, as every club and promoter pull out all the stops for the party that the whole season has been working toward.

There’s a good reason a lot of parties don’t have an end time when it comes to closing!

Whilst you might find yourself in Ibiza in the middle of September, not every party you go to will necessarily be a Closing Party.
