Raving well into October, the White Isle has extended its 2013 club season to keep the hedonistic good times going longer than ever.
So banish those autumn blues and get ready to wave your glowstick at the legendary Ibiza closing parties.
The year’s hottest destination is undoubtedly the Ushuaia Ibiza Beach Hotel and neighbouring Ushuaia Tower on Playa D’en Bossa.
Here some of the most stylish and exclusive celebrations take place.
“This summer the parties have been bigger and better than ever and nobody wants to stop,” explains DJ Jean Claude Ades, whose suitablynamed Be Crazy event has quickly become one of the island’s hottest tickets.
“The Brits love to party and they are a big part of Ibiza culture. We expect the last few weeks to be extra special.”
Be Crazy attracts an international crowd and has enjoyed celebrity visits from the likes of Hollywood screen god Leonardo DiCaprio, 38, and Barcelona’s Argegentinian football maestro Lionel Messi, 26.
“Be Crazy is like a modern Studio 54 disco party, full of beautiful people,” explains the Italian-born DJ, headphones in one hand, glass of champers in the other.

“It’s slightly decadent, with a very sexy vibe and deep tech music.
“The future of the DJ scene in Ibiza is not just about the music, it’s all about the show and big productions.
“So at Ushuaia we have artists jumping from rooftops on bungee ropes and huge elephants carried in from the beach. There’s always a surprise for the people.”
Jean Claude’s Be Crazy moves to the main Ushuaia poolside stage for its epic closing party on Wednesday and promises to be the season’s major blow-out.
“It really will be crazy,” promises JC. “With some sets we have played on until 10 in the morning.
“I like to have a climax. I take you on a musical journey with music from the 80s to now in a modern way – three decades in one set.”
Thanks to Jean Claude Ades, the spirit of classic, stylish Ibiza partying is definitely in safe hands. Be Crazy has become a ritual for all clubbers coming here.
But there are plenty of other closing parties for one final summer fling. Here we round up the best on offer.
