September is easily our favourite month in the Ibiza season.The summer buzz is still strong but the crowds and the heat have started to ease up ever so slightly, and the sense that the end of the season is near means everyone is under pressure to make those remaining days count.
This week, one of our favourite nights close it's doors for 2017, there is a whole lot of DC10 action and Papa Sven can be found outside of his natural habitat.
Monday 4 September - Circoloco at DC10
Line Up: Kerri Chandler, Better Lost Than Stupid, Tania Vulcano, Jackmaster, Magda, Margaret Dygas, Ellen Allien, Ben UFO, Red Axes, Shonky, Cirillo, Mr Tophat, Mike Servito, Sossa, Axel Bowman, Morgan Hammer, Haiku 575.
Ben UFO is back to light up Circoloco with what we're tipping will be the set of the party. We remember the glorious year DC10 went abosolutley nuts to Magda in 2011and we wouldn't miss the chance to catch her again alongside Dygas and Vulcano. Apollonia's Shonky and Red Axes add to a diverse line up although Jackmaster and Kerri may pip it as the real stars of show.
Tuesday 5 September - WooMooN Closing party at Cova Santa
Line Up: Adriatique, Audiofly, Behrouz, Kalabrese, Lunar City Express, Monolink, NUform, Rampue, Rico Loop.
Woomoon have taken 2017 by storm with its hedonistic take on Sundays. A full moon awaits for the closing, which will no doubt drive the hippies and healers into even greater levels of excitement. Expect the usual bohemian and shamanic vibes in the hills as we say farewell to this season.
Wednesday 6 September - Paradise at DC10
Line Up: Jamie Jones B2B Craig Richards, Guy Gerber, DJ Harvey, Skream, Richie Ahmed B2B Butch, Ryan Elliott, Doc Martin, Detlef, Russ Yallop.
Fresh from the roaring success of his Houghton Festival, Craig Richards takes on a back to back with Jamie Jones. And that's not the only eye catcher. DJ Harvey plays the Main Room, Richie Ahmed goes back to back with Butch. Guy Gerber, Ostgut Ton favourite Ryan Elliot, Skream, San Francisco legend and recent Ibiza Voice podcast contributor Doc Martin, Detlef and Russ Yallop complete a super strong lineup.
Thursday 7 September - In The Dark at Hï
Line Up: Joris Voorn, Luciano, Mark Fancuilli, Nic Fancuilli, Solardo, Steve Lawler.
In The Dark fields perhaps the strongest resident team of tech house stars on the island and it is a special treat to catch them playing together in the club. After our recent throwback to Luciano's podcast with us, this is exactly what we are looking for this week. The Fanciulli brothers are also both in attendance which is a rarity.
Friday 8 September - Labyrinth at Pacha
Line Up: Hot Since 82 b2b Heidi, Derrick Carter, Matador, 2Vilas.
Hot Since 82 and Heidi back to back can only mean serious Pacha fireworks. But our tip for the night is Derrick Carter, back at the familiar controls of Pacha, and bringing to the table a rich history of tearing apart the main room. Add some Irish techno flavours from Matador, and you have yourself an action packed night out at Pacha.
Saturday 9 September - Elrow at Amnesia
Line Up: Eats Everything, Nathan Borato, De La Swing, Eddy M, Mario Biani, Ilario Alicante.
It's safe to say Eats Everything is the king of Elrow. He's back for another marathon stint in Elrow City while Cocoonstar Ilario Alicante makes a rare appearance in the other room for what should be another memorable edition of the world's favourite carnival in a club.
Sunday 10 September - Solomun+1 at Pacha
Line Up: Solomun, Sven Väth.
Catching Sven on a Sunday night outside of Amnesia and before his Cocoon commitments is big news. The fact that Solomun's +1 concept allows him to go off on one of his famous musical journeys is even bigger. Make this your choice for Sunday, it's too rare to miss.
