That time is finally upon us, after 27 years, and a massive final season, Space Ibiza gears up for the last ever Closing Fiesta.
With Space head honcho Pepe Rosello previously confirming that the contract for the venue expires in 2016, Space officially announced the closure of the club with one last hurrah.
On 2nd October 2016, Space Ibiza will host what must be the largest event in the island’s clubbing history. The 22 hour marathon long Closing Fiesta boasts a 15,000 capacity, spread over 6 arenas, with the biggest names in the business, doing what they do best.
Talking about DJs, the Space Closing Fiesta line-up comprises of a staggering 126 DJs, including Space legends Alex P & Brandon Block, Sasha, Steve Lawler, Nic Fanciulli, David Morales, Roger Sanchez, Jonathan Ulysses, James Zabiela, and most notably Carl Cox, who’s been a driving force at Space over the last 15 years. Check out the full line up here.
The entire event will be broadcast live by BE-AT TV, who will be covering the main areas in full HD both online, and via their mobile apps.

Even though Space is leaving the Playa d’en Bossa venue, the international clubbing brand itself lives on, and will continue to operate around the world.
With a strong agency line-up, and a history of incredible tour dates under their collective belts, we expect to see much more from the brand in 2017, although no dates have been announced yet.
As for the venue itself, much speculation has been thrown about since the Ushuaia Group (Matutes Group) announced it was taking over the Playa d’en Bossa site.
From Theme Park (really?!?) to a Hotel, the rumours came thick and fast. However, in an interview with Diaro de Ibiza, Abel Matutes Prats VP of Matutes Group said that "Obviously we want to keep it as a club, but also want to dedicate it to the audience in which we are now focusing, which will be complementary to Ushuaïa".
This news is confirmed by the venues current “Class 41” licence, which restricts the site to leisure and recreation use, preventing the venue from becoming a Hotel or Theme Park…thank god!
In a closing comment, Abel said the group are aiming to re-open the venue by Summer 2017, which leaves fellow clubbers eager to see what the next chapter of this iconic venue, has in store.
