Ibiza Closing Parties 2023

Your guide for the best closing parties of the season

Closing 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. Last season saw the return of clubbing to Ibiza in a season to remember. We’re sure that 2023’s Closing Parties are going to be even better.

In this guide we’ll tell you what to expect from the Closing Parties, our recommendations for 2023, and list Closing Parties as soon as they’re confirmed.

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.

So in a normal season, Ibiza Closing Parties take place between the 16th September – 18th October.

Just as Opening Parties seem to start earlier in May each season, Closing Parties now take place later every year.

Circoloco at DC10, and Solomun +1 at Pacha are good examples of the last Closing Parties you’ll be able to find at Ibiza’s largest clubs.

It’s worth noting that 2021 was not a normal season. Clubs couldn’t open until the end of October albeit with lots of restrictions. As a result, Opening & Closing Parties were essentially the same thing. Amnesia’s Opening Party took place on the 22nd October, and its Closing Party the following day on the 23rd!

Thankfully clubbing returned to “normal” in 2022, and Closing Parties are back to like they have been in previous seasons.

So if you’re going to be in Ibiza right up until the middle of October 2023, you’ll still find plenty of clubbing on the island.

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!

You may even come across Closing Parties that take place in July or August. That’s pretty common at the likes of Ibiza Rocks, who frequently have residencies that split in the middle of the summer. An example of this is Becky Hill’s Closing Party, which took place on the 25th July.

However, let’s look at the peak Closing Parties dates. Of the 56 confirmed Closing Parties so far in 2023, the first takes place on the 25th August (Calvin Harris), and the last is the 28th October (TRIP at Club Chinois).

That’s a pretty wide timespan so make sure you plan ahead!

We also highly recommend buying your tickets in advance. The most popular Closing Parties on the island will sell out… you have been warned!

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.

This season there are 24 parties to choose from that week, with 5 parties taking place alone on Thursday the 5th October 🎉

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 2023, 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 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.
