Saying goodbye to summer in style: The unmissable Destino closing party with Marco Carola & Music On.
On Friday, October 13, the enchanting open-air venue will resonate with the beats of techno and house as the sun dips below the horizon, marking the end of an era and the beginning of a night filled with memories.
The party kicks off at 5pm, giving us all ample time to soak up the last rays of the summer sun before transitioning into a night of heart-thumping music under the stars.
Marco Carola, the mastermind behind the renowned Music On brand, is no stranger to the Destino decks. His reputation as a techno maven precedes him, with past performances from not only this summer but summers past.
As the night unveils, Carola is set to deliver his signature blend of dark techno and underground house, something that we have come to know and love over the years since Music On was created.
Joining Carola is Luciano, whose sound is a perfect counterpoint to Carola’s intense techno beats.
With a longstanding relationship with Ibiza's club scene, Luciano's presence on the lineup is like the cherry on top (Pacha-pun intended), promising a sonic experience filled with energy.
The UK’s relentless selector, wAFF, is also on the bill, bringing a spectrum of sounds ranging from deep house to tech.
Completing the lineup is Calvin Clarke. Having played at some of the biggest festivals and clubs around the world, Clarke's addition to the lineup sets the tone for a night where the music does the talking.
What a way to celebrate the end of the 2023 season, by dancing under the Balearic sun and into the night.
What’s more, the party doesn’t end there! The Music On closing party is taking place at Pacha Ibiza from midnight the very same day, so you have a 12+ hour dancing session available to you, should you be so inclined.
These parties are a homage to the summer of 2023 and will be a tribute to the beats that defined it as well as a toast to the memories made.
The Destino closing party is about the camaraderie among the crowd, the shared love for music, and the unspoken bond that ties every heart together during an Ibizan summer.
Whether you’re a veteran of the Ibiza club scene or a newcomer eager to catch the last vibes of the summer, the Destino closing party is where you’ll want to be.
Marco Carola is a seminal figure in the techno music scene. From a young age, he showcased a proclivity for music, initially playing the drums before transitioning to electronic and house music by the age of 15.
Over the years, Carola's exemplary talents propelled him onto the global stage, earning him a reputation as a "global ambassador of techno." His instrumental role in the evolution of the electronic scene during the early 90s, especially the techno Napolitano scene, has solidified his standing as a respected artist in the techno genre even decades later.
With incredible residencies (Cocoon and Music On) at Amnesia and Pacha alongside one-off parties across the island - the Music On brand is only getting stronger and stronger as the years go on.
Early in his career, Luciano was captivated by the Detroit techno scene, which fueled his desire to share his passion for techno music. Despite facing initial resistance from rock enthusiasts while performing in clubs, Luciano persisted, gradually garnering a loyal following and contributing significantly to the growth of dance music in his adopted homeland.
Luciano is not only a revered DJ but also a prolific producer, known for his Latin American music-infused DJ sets, which reflect his bicultural Swiss-Chilean heritage.
Over the years, he has been part of a niche group of individuals who were instrumental in nurturing and developing the underground electronic music scene in Chile, often by promoting events, performing, and organizing parties within the Chilean club circuit.
His innovation and forward-thinking approach to blending house and techno genres have positioned him at the forefront of the electronic music scene, enabling his unique sound to resonate with audiences globally.
Emerging from the underground music scene, wAFF, a UK-based DJ and producer, has carved out a name for himself on the global techno stage.
His relentless work ethic and unique sound have not only made him the only UK artist to record for techno powerhouses like Cocoon, Drumcode, and Desolat but also a defining figure on dance floors from Leeds and Hull to major global stages.
His keen attention to detail and unyielding enthusiasm for music, coupled with a multifaceted approach to house and techno, have made wAFF a staple in some of the most reputable imprints in the electronic music industry.
Manchester-born Calvin Clarke is a Kaluki resident DJ and has played at some of the biggest festivals and clubs around the world including BPM Festival, Fabric (London), Elrow (Barcelona), The Warehouse Project (Manchester), and many more.
