_91519394_img_3292_main_room_dancer_gv_e

Space in Ibiza has closed its doors for the final time after 27 years.

The club opened in 1989 and was known for its legendary terrace, Carl Cox’s mind-blowing sets and 22 hour dance marathons on a Sunday.

The Space Closing Fiesta was the final event at the venue as its lease has not been renewed.

“Space is synonymous with Ibiza,” one clubber said as the final tunes were played at the weekend.

“Being with all of you has meant everything!!” organisers told fans on the big screen.

Photographer James Mo captured Space’s final moments for Newsbeat.

This year it was named Best Club in the World by DJ Mag.

Space Ibiza: 27 Years of Clubbing History 50-MINUTE DOCUMENTARY

spaceibiza-news

Space Ibiza is the most awarded club in the history, a party icon. It revolutionized the clubbing scene creating the first after-hour in the World. Nowadays, Space Ibiza has 5 rooms, 3 of them are partially outdoor: Sunset Terrace, Premier Etage and El Salón. Main Room and the legendary Terrace complete the structure of this famous club, known by its fantastic atmosphere and big productions. The gargantuan Opening and Closing parties also feature a special outdoor stage.

Ibiza 2016 season news roundup ONE

embedded-1454938008

These past weeks have been marked in the calendar by every Ibiza lover worth their salt since the last track of the last set of the last closing party. This is so because, slightly earlier than previous years, promoters and club owners are revealing their parties for the season in order to bring to the island the best choices for locals and holiday makers.

As some folks have announced their return and development for 2016, others have said goodbye like Richie Hawtin’s Enter team – which confirmed last month its desire to explore other destinations for the hottest months. But sometimes changes are necessary and, apart from being a farewell year and the last call for those who have never been into Space or checked the legendary Carl Cox out at his Ibiza parties, 2016 marks a season where fresh air and novelties seem to be the main protagonists.

If you have missed any of the news from throughout January, here’s a sluce of what we know so far. Of course, if you want to know every tiny detail – far too much to include in this weeks magazine – then please head on over to our website here.


1 – Space Ibiza Opening date confirmed

The 29th of May is the date that the legendary Space Ibiza club has set to kick off what will be its final season ever, in the form we know it as today. Five different areas in which to lose, find or expose yourself under a very special canopy of energy, happiness and nostalgia. The artists who will liven up the evening are still unknown at this early stage, but you can expect quality at the highest of levels for this, their last Space opening party. The first bunch of tickets are available now at Spotlight for 50€.


2 – Cream and Together come back to Amnesia for 2016

Thursdays are for Cream and Tuesdays for Together. Both parties have confirmed their respective residencies at San Rafael’s super club. The Cream trance and house family will celebrate a milestone of 21 years on the island for over 14 weeks from the big opening on the 9th of June until September 15th. Meanwhile, Together is preparing its 6th year bringing the bass to Ibiza’s crowd with a mammoth sized 16-week stint which will kick off the next 7th of June. Big names like Chase & Status, Sigma and Skrillex were on the decks last summer, just saying.


3- ABODE announces Ibiza Sankeys’ basement residency

Flying all the way from the UK, ABODE will land at Ibiza’s Sankeys the following 24th of June for a whole summer season. The hugely respected London party has hosted some notorious names and labels like Hot Creations, Paradise and Defected, so expect quality selectors in front of the dancefloors. For 2016, ABODE keeps Fridays at Sankeys’ Basement room. There’s plenty of change at Sankeys this year too, check the link for more.


4 – Glitterbox confirms line-ups for 2016 season

Glitterbox, the disco and house party which took over Space for the very first time last summer and was a huge success, is returning this season to the house that nurtured its spark. Every Friday from the 3rd of June and until the 23rd of September, the glitter-babes will be spreading love by the hand of a first round of confirmed artists like Defected label-head Simon Dunmore, Basement Jaxx, Dimitri From Paris, Todd Terry, Joey Negro, Roger Sanchez, DJ Pippi and Purple Disco Machine.


5 – Pure Pacha, Martin Solveig’s ‘My House’ and F*** Me I’m Famous return to Pacha in 2016

Pacha confirms three of the parties for the summer season. Pure Pacha will be Saturday’s queen one more time with Bob’s Sinclair at the helm all ready to turn the club into an authentic Parisian cabaret. Martin Solveig’s ‘My House’ returns for round 2 of Wednesday nights from 25th May, a residency that also coincides with the celebration of 11 years on Ibiza for Mr Solveig. And, of course, one of the legendary party brands on the island, David Güetta’s F*** Me I Am Famous, will be back to the club on Thursdays for 19 weeks. No line-ups revealed yet.

CARL COX IS ENDING HIS 15-YEAR SPACE IBIZA RESIDENCY

coxyspaceCarl Cox has announced he is to conclude his residency at Space Ibiza at the end of next summer after 15 years of delighting crowds at the superclub. Oh no… Oh no!

Speaking to DJ Mag, he revealed: “Next year will be my last year at Space Ibiza, so please do not miss a single night if you can, very special line-ups for 15 weeks. Watch this space…”

Coxy’s residency has been marked by banging tunes and quality curation, establishing Space as one of the biggest clubs in the world.

The undisputed king of Ibiza will surely remain on the White Isle, but this still feels like the end of a momentous chapter in dance music.

But those in the know won’t be shocked by this sudden revelation. Anyone with a keen eye on Ibiza will know that rumours surrounding Space’s future abound and Coxy even said he’d be rounding out his residency at some point soon in aninterview with Mixmag last year.

He told us: “The thing is, all good things come to an end. It’s common knowledge that the owners of Ushuaia [and Space] want to turn Space into Ushuaia Club. Whether it’s a good or bad thing, I don’t want to be a part of it. It’s got nothing to do with me. If I re-contract myself to do Ushuaia Club at Space, potentially, what do I do? What would they want me to do? Either carry on doing what I’ve been doing for 15 years or wise up to what the future holds .

“You know what, if I’m there for the next two years, I’ll have been there for 15 years and I think I’ll have represented dance music at the highest level among anyone I know. I’d be quite happy to walk away from it [after that] and do something else.”

Space Ibiza announce their Sydney NYD line-up

e05df_1745489

Every New Year’s Day, Space Ibiza starts the year with a trip to Sydney. On January 1, The Greenwood Hotel becomes the site of Space Ibiza NYD, one boutique event you can count on delivering an all-quality line-up, year on year.

So it shouldn’t come as any surprise that Space Ibiza NYD have locked in one of electronic music’s greats to headline their 2015 party. House legend Derrick Carter leads next year’s line-up, joined by Funk D’VoidOliver KoletskiJavi Bora and balearic house pioneer Alfredo, plus a string of dependable locals. Tickets will set you back $89; scroll down to see the full bill.

“I think the strength and success of the day came from the focused music policy, which feeds into attracting a crowd with similar tastes,” our reviewer wrote of the 2011 Space Ibiza edition. “While some other events are pursuing a path of increased diversity, the decision by the festival to stick to a handful of respected dance music DJs and acts really paid dividends.”

DJMag Names Space Ibiza Best Club in Annual Rankings, Hakkasan Takes Top U.S. Spot

jon-rundell-performs-at-space-ibiza

Everyone’s got a “must _____” list based around their personal interests. Unfortunately for American EDM fans, if they want to visit all of the Top 100 clubs in the world, they’re going to have to travel abroad. The list provided below in this article was compiled by DJMag, who also publishes the annual list of best DJ’s (which may or may not make it legitimate, depending on who you ask.)

This year feature’s a new name on top in the form of Space Ibiza, a club located on the titular island of Spain, long hailed as the capitol of live EDM music. It beat out last year’s champion, Green Valley. That Brazilian club, located outside of Sorocaba, fell to no. 2. The United States doesn’t make an appearance on the list until Hakkasan comes in at no. 10. The new club, based out of the MGM Grand in Las Vegas, has made headlines for its roster of residents. Another Las Vegas club, Marquee Las Vegas takes the next highest U.S. spot at no. 15.

Spain demonstrates its EDM dominance, placing four clubs in the Top 10, three of which are on Ibiza.

Sunshine, cheap deals and clubbing: Party island Ibiza is a white hot holiday destination

ibiza_holidays_travel-376103

The world’s coolest hotel chain, Hard Rock, is set to open its very first European-based hotel next month and they’ve chosen this small but stunning Balearic island.

With A-listers galore invited to the grand opening night on May 18, Ibiza’s Playa d’en Bossa beach is going to have its hottest summer ever.

But the beauty of this Mediterranean gem is that one of the best times of year to go for a holiday is spring.

With reasonable prices, perfect weather and the party-mad crowds yet to descend, it’s really what Ibiza is all about.

And the Hard Rock folk aren’t wrong in choosing Playa d’en Bossa, Ibiza’s longest beach – it really is beautiful.

Shimmering in between Ibiza’s newly modernised airport and the world heritage site of Ibiza Old Town, this two-mile stretch of white sand in the south has it all.

Once it was just home to the infamous Bora Bora beach where you can drink and dance 24 hours a day.

Now it’s got more fivestar beach clubs, trendy bars and beautiful people than even Beyoncé and Jay Z can cope with (they regularly moor their super yacht in nearby Ibiza Town’s marina).

Bora Bora is still there, of course.

“With reasonable prices, perfect weather and the party-mad crowds yet to descend, it’s really what Ibiza is all about”

As is super club Space. And there’s a Pizza Express and Burger King too.

But Hard Rock joins a roll-call of affordable luxury that is changing the face of the island forever.

The twin towers of Hard Rock and Ushuaia are joined by the latest apartment complex along the palm-fringed sands.

Ibiza Royal Beach is a monument of white marble set around a series of stunning infinity pools and private beaches, and offers two to four-bed apartments to rent all year round whether you want a weekend or the whole summer season.

It’s perfect if you want to do your own thing or are travelling with children.

We chose to stay in a two-bed apartment, which had huge white leather sofas, plasma telly with all the footie and a huge private sun terrace overlooking the pools and sea beyond.

The fridge even came stocked with beer.

Ibiza at this time of year truly is stunning.

The quality of light – the reason the island is called the White Isle – is breathtaking and the fields and hills are filled with spring flowers and blossom.

Our absolutely favourite thing to do was stroll along the more or less deserted beach with the waves lapping at our toes as sea birds wheel overhead.

The weather is a steady 20-21C and the sun shines every day.

A light jacket is all you need at night and watching a famous Ibiza sunset sink below the horizon before the sky explodes into a mass of shooting stars is something you’ll never forget.

Most of the big clubs like Space don’t really get going until June but smaller venues, beach clubs and restaurants are all up and running in May.

Nassau Beach Club is a 15-minute stroll along the beach from Ibiza Royal Beach apartments and it’s the perfect place to have a champagne and sangria-fuelled lunch of seafood while watching the waves and world go by.

A little further afield is the new Yemanja restaurant and beach club at Cala Jondal. Set next door to, and owned by the famous Blue Marlin, this hidden gem opened in February but is already a hit.

Set between towering cliffs, we had a delicious Sunday lunch of fresh tuna and beef while gazing out to sea.

As we’d only just left a rain-sodden London it was a totally “wow” moment.

Because Ibiza is only the same size as the Isle of Wight, travelling around is never a problem, especially at this time of year.

Taxis are reasonable and plentiful (it will cost you £9 from Ibiza airport to Playa d’en Bossa beach), buses traverse the island and car hire is safe and inexpensive.

But one of the best ways to see the island and smell the delicious scents of fresh herbs and spring flowers is to hire bikes and get off the beaten track.

The local council has spent a lot of money ensuring there are well-maintained tracks into the countryside and you can pedal for hours without seeing another soul.

Ibiza Town itself is definitely worth exploring.

The old fortified Dalt Vila is a World Heritage Site and exploring its narrow streets and cave-like houses is like stepping back into medieval times. If you want to explore another Balearic island while you’re away consider taking one of the regular ferries to the nearby island of Formentera.

We could see this nature and marine reserve from our apartment and it’s worth the trip for sheer back-to-nature escapism.

Don’t miss a trip to Es Vedra. This uninhabited rock, just off the coast of south Ibiza, is supposed to be one of the most mystical places on Earth.

It’s the only place Nostradamus predicted would survive the apocalypse and even cynics will find its rugged beauty weirdly moving.

The whole natural rhythm of Ibiza in late spring and early summer still has a soundtrack of dance music but it’s more chilled.

If you want to party you can with all nighters already started at Pacha in Ibiza Town and most beach clubs have DJs playing into the night.

But this is the island at its best, the one the original hippies fell in love with in the 60s.

And it’s perfect for any age group from tots to pensioners. Even better is that it’s just a two-hour flight from the UK.

Ibiza has something for everyone all year round and it’s little wonder some of those original hippies loved it so much they simply never left.

FACT FILE

IBIZA Royal Beach apartments are available to rent at ibizaluxury.es and to buy at ibizaroyalbeach.com.

Summer rental prices for a two-bed, five-person apartment start at £165 per day.

British Airways is the only UK airline to operate services to Ibiza all year round with flights from London City Airport.

Prices begin from £59 with customers getting two pieces of hand baggage, free seat selection 24 hours in advance plus free drinks and snacks.

Ibiza takes over from St Tropez as Med’s top celeb playground

Ibiza

by A Place in the Sun

When it comes to celebrities, whohasn’t holidayed in Ibiza this year?

From Beyoncé and rapper Baby Blue to David and Samantha Cameron and actors Benedict Cumberbatch and Leonardo di Caprio, the Spanish island has been a revolving door for the stars.

Of course this is nothing new although its celebrity cachet seems to increase year on year and it has certainly replaced St Tropez as the go-to party place for the rich and famous.

Celebrities such as Elizabeth Taylor and Errol Flynn have been visiting Ibiza since the 1950s, so this is not a new phenomenon, it’s just the appetite for spotting them has grown along with the explosion of social media.

What the stars loved about Ibiza 60 years ago still stands today, beautiful scenery, unspoilt beaches, rolling countryside and an ability to escape the public and the paparazzi should they wish.

“Ibiza is not an island that hounds the famous, it allows them to enjoy themselves alongside the locals, safe in the knowledge that they’re in the most fashionable hotspot in the Mediterranean,” says Daniel Chavarria Waschke, Managing Director of Balearic Sotheby’s International Realty.

Indeed there are many more sides to Ibiza than tabloid tittle tattle would have people believe.

Yes, it is a paradise for mad clubbing hedonism with Space, Pacha, Amnesia and Privilege offering colourful club nights all summer long, but Ibiza also offers quiet coves, fine dining restaurants and a UNESCO-protected Old Town – all encircled by beautiful turquoise waters drenched with endless sunshine. It is therefore guaranteed that there’s something within its dainty 570 km2 to suit everyone.

If you’re looking for TOWIE talent or their ‘Enders predecessors, San Antonio’s Ocean Beach Ibiza is the place to hang out – Joey Essex, Jessica Wright, Patsy Palmer and Natalie Cassidy are just some of the “names” to have graced their VIP beds this season.

Tulisa has also taken her unique sense of style to the Island to drown her ex-X-Factorsorrows. Moving up the social rankings, tennis heart throb Rafael Nadal, socialite Paris Hilton, box office banker Leonardo DiCaprio and supermodels Bar Refaeli, Doutzen Kroes and Kate Moss have all chosen the White Isle for their summer 2013 holidays. It’s also a firm favourite with Premiership and top-level Spanish footballers.

“The island does not discriminate, it’s for young and old, families and partygoers, wealthy and famous, all just a couple of hours flying time from northern Europe. It offers a high-end lifestyle which has seen a good deal of investment over recent years in the shape of new marinas, luxury hotels and restaurants. The St Tropez crowd are now coming to Ibiza, it’s a very aspirational place to be,” adds Daniel.

Of course Ibiza is not just for holidays, it’s also for living. Supermodels Elle MacPherson, Naomi Campbell and Jade Jagger have all had homes on the island, as does bad boy rocker Noel Gallagher, football favourites Cesc Fabregas and David Villa, musician James Blunt and DJs Pete Tong and Eric Morillo.

According to Ibiza Sotheby’s International Realty, the two styles of villa most sought-after today are contemporary well-designed new builds that relate to the landscape and traditional fincas that have been modernised in Ibizan minimalist style whilst retaining the original structure. They have examples of both.
