I love the closing parties. In my opinion best time to go... well anytime is good!

Booking accomodation, depends on how much you want to spend. I have booked a long time in advance in the past it is cheaper but I usually book a little while before I go now, advance planning seems to ruin my excitement!

In terms of when the closing parties will be, just check the 2009 calendar as they're a pretty good indication of the dates for the next year. Late september early october is my favourite when space starts they're closing parties and then of course Space grand closing preceded by Amnesia closing, always a good weekend.

I'm sure other peopl will have info as well, just thought I'd give you my two penny's worth.
In the beginning, there was Jack, and Jack had a groove.
And from this groove came the groove of all grooves.
And while one day viciously throwing down on his box, Jack boldy declared,

"Let there be house!" and house music was born.

And, in my house there is only house music.
