Calvin Harris Ends Ushuaïa Ibiza Residency In Spectacular Form

Posted on September 10, 2019

Words: Kane Allen

What a debut. Calvin Harris has called time on his first Ushuaïa Ibiza residency – and the closing couldn’t have gone better. The open-air superclub had the whole of Playa d’en Bossa – and the rest of the island – in its four walls for this one. The electronic dance music supremo is by far one of the most popular artists on the planet. How many others could have Ushuaïa Ibiza packed to the rafters? For this much-anticipated end-of-season occasion, Calvin Harris brought his all and then some and then even more. Here’s what happened at the final Calvin Harris Ibiza show of the season.

This residency hasn’t all be about Calvin Harris, though. The Scottish producer and DJ is known for creating some of the best beats in the world, collaborating with some of the hottest stars from across the globe. It was only right his residency line-ups would be curated to such a high standard. Having had the likes of MK, Duke Dumont, Disciples, Sonny Fodera and more on his Friday Ushuaïa Ibiza bill, this time it was the turn of French future house selector and producer Tchami.

Keeping the tempo bouncy with that electric touch Tchami has become known for, Ushuaïa Ibiza was filling quick and dancing even faster. The atmosphere for this one was going to be special and Tchami was bringing his best to his final Ibiza show of the summer. The French DJ is known to pack his sets with his own productions – and this was no exception, to the delight of the thousands in attendance. Coming from Paris’ rich nightlife scene, Tchami is regarded as a pioneer of the genre, despite not even reaching his forties yet. For this final Calvin Harris Friday of the season, Tchami was a perfect acquisition. Now it was time for the main man.

After a short break in the music, the lights blackened and Ushuaïa Ibiza stood ready and waiting. The last hour-and-a-half of Calvin Harris on the island was here. He started with the microphone in hand, thanking the open-air venue for what’s been a spectacular first-year residency, before turning up the volume and bringing-out his best. All the Calvin bangers we’ve come to know and love. From Feel So Close to Sweet Nothing to One Kiss, Calvin Harris travelled through his platinum record collection and packed his set of that sing-a-long goodness we could all get involved in. It was a special evening for one special Ibiza residency. Next summer can’t come quick enough.
