It’s been another big summer of pre-parties, great music, fun and friends for Tantra Ibiza, a much beloved venue of White Isle workers and holidaymakers alike. A bustling hotspot that plays a central part in many people’s summer memories, the trendy Playa d’en Bossa bar is much more than just a place to warm up for the night ahead, offering a home away from home for likeminded spirits and a place to forge new friendships. Each year, its closing marks a distinct step closer towards the official end of the season – so it came as no surprise that last night family, friends and fans of the concept turned out in force to help bring the shutters down.

After a summer of epic pre-parties, the line-up for Tantra Ibiza’s official closing – powered by the Taste The Punch crew – was a belter that featured the likes of DJ Sneak and Doorly, as well as Jesse Perez, DJ Oliver, Frank Mendez, Zuer, Davide Alfieri and George Lavelle to keep the party going from 19.00 until the early hours. While it seemed like most of Ibiza had made the effort to enjoy one more boogie at the popular party spot, those who couldn’t attend in person had the opportunity to follow the action via live streams on Facebook and a broadcast on onsite radio station Ibiza White FM at island frequency 103.7.

Under the motto ‘Last Show Of The Summer’ celebrations started, as is tradition, with a barbecue in the afternoon and with proceeds of the event going to charity Caritas, it was an excellent opportunity to add a good cause to great fun. Tantra’s talented resident DJs provided the soundtrack to warm revellers up for the night ahead, and when we arrived after nightfall the venue was already super busy with revellers from all corners of the island. Following island veteran Doorly, who had set the festival style stage alight and left the turntables smoking, DJ Sneak had the crowd firmly in palm of his hand, with the whole outdoor space dancing along to his upbeat house beats.

A special light show by Bamboo transformed the al fresco party area in a mysterious and edgy visual playground with red lasers slicing through the fog generated by the steam machine. Sneak kept the energy high with an infectious selection of tracks that no one could resist letting loose to, and it seemed all too soon that the music wound down and the party moved inside at the end of his set.

Far from slowing down, the full scale of the size of the party became obvious within Tantra’s four walls, as the room was quickly packed with enthusiastic partygoers keen to continue dancing. There was certainly no end of season sadness to be witnessed, as revellers partied like it was the height of summer. Flexing its muscles once more to show why it has established itself as one of the hottest spots to start your night on the White Isle, Tantra Ibiza finished the 2017 summer just as any good venue should: leaving us wanting more.
