This event will be celebrated alternating between both locations, being held in Ibiza on odd years and Las Vegas the years that are pair.”

Space’s Farewell: the party that is already in the legend books.

So, Space has shut its doors for the last time but not before it threw one heck of a party! Its story will be told with pride to both our children and our grandchildren.

With Space gone, it has taken away a piece of Ibiza history, but not before it has given us an understanding of the island.

It’s friendliness, its ability to mix everyone together socially, its fun side; all played out in Playa d’en Bossa.

It has been a fabulous party – indeed an immense party and all the DJ’s who played there gave nothing but the best of themselves.

The grand finale was heralded by King Carl Cox himself. Him and Nic Fanciulli have created a great and unforgettable b2b.

On the morning of 3rd October, everyone really was there; from Solomun to Marco Carola, Maceo Plex to Joseph Capriati, the Tales of Us to Sasha where the main room was still completely packed.

At noon when Carl Cox had to finally turn off the music, we all had tears in our eyes.

Not just from the tension that had built up over the night but because we knew this really would be the last time we would come out in to the morning from Space.

At times such as this it is futile to try and stop the emotion and tears.

Playa d’en Bossa’s Space has left us forever.

So Space, goodbye, thank you, it really has been the best fun over the years.

Thanks to “King” Carl Cox, to Pepe Rosello, to artists, DJ’s and the teams over the years who have produced Space’s unique magic.

It is with great melancholly that we bid farewell to a genuinely beautiful era.

But as they sometimes say, a goodbye is often the prelude of a new, intriguing adventure! 😉

P.s. you will find more pictures & videos of the closing on our Fb fan page.
