Heart Beat, Wally Lopez’s Friday night HEART Ibiza residency came to a climactic close on October 6 with special guest Sharam playing an exclusive island show. It was a fitting finale for a party that started well and got stranger as the summer progressed. With one of the most influential Spanish artists of the last couple of decades at the helm, inviting a series of exciting talent, experienced and new, to join him, it enjoyed a strong local following as well as cosmopolitan tourists from all over the globe.

It’s Friday night in the Marina, a night that enjoys a special kind of buzz normally, but it’s also closing time in Ibiza, which carries with it an extra edge to the vibe. It’s an exciting time to be on island, as we say goodbye to the DJs and parties that have made us dance all summer, creating memories that will live long after our sun tans have faded. It’s a glamorous crowd that fills HEART Ibiza most nights, and tonight, as we get set to say goodbye to Wally Lopez and his brand-new Heart Beat residency, the crowd has made a special effort. The innovative venue is resplendent as always, the walls offers a window into another world as the floor marches to the four-four beat of some of the finest house music.

The special guest for the finale is Sharam, an artist that needs no introduction to the Ibiza crowd. As a solo artist and as part of world-famous duo Deep Dish, Sharam has been at the centre of some of the most vibrant gatherings in the last decade. He has played in many of the island’s iconic venues over the years and now it is the turn of HEART Ibiza to savour his unique ability to engage a crowd. The talented headliner doesn’t disappoint as he takes the floor on a journey through some delicious beats, with a few classics thrown in for nostalgia! The result is an electric atmosphere and one fitting of a final party. Wally Lopez has delivered a fantastic alternative to getting the weekend off to a flyer, bringing the Ibiza tribes together, creating an environment where great house music rules and where the dancefloor is the only place to be!
