Sankeys Ibiza opened in 2011 and has since gone from strength to strength on the ever-demanding clubbing island, boasting an array of spectacular residents, as well as the honour of being the fastest growing club on Ibiza.
Playing host to a strong base of residents with the likes of Steve Lawler, Manu Gonzalez, Amine Edge & DANCE, Roger Sanchez, Greg Vickers and East End Dubs gracing the decks each week, 2015 has welcomed new additions to the Seven Wonders of Sankeys Ibiza by hosting seven highly influential nightlife brands such as CUFF, Tribal Sessions, We Love, Redlight, Shelter, Magna Carta and VIVa Warriors.
Sankeys Ibiza consists of three unique rooms; The Basement, The LAB and Spektrum, and this season Sankeys Ibiza takes it up a level after installing a Pioneer Professional Audio’s flagship sound system in its main room.
Cuff – Monday
CUFF Ibiza is all about G-house. In its simplest form is an offshoot of the traditional house blueprint that leans towards a bass driven, hip-hop vibe and typically sits at the 120/122bpm mark – bringing with it heaps of attitude and intoxicating energy. According to the resident duo Amine Edge & DANCE, the ‘G’ stands for ‘gangsta’ – a slang term used to describe their inaugural G-House release ‘Going to Heaven With The Goodie-Goodies.

Tribal Sessions – Tuesday
Tribal Sessions is all about house, techno, disco and bass. A mixture of old and new music. Going back to that rebellious nature of the illegal Tribal Gathering raves of the 90s, it’s not about restricting your style to a specific genre, it’s about opening up to be inclusive of many different influences and to just put on a good party. It has an established and devoted following. It’s a unique night that brings together many different styles under one party roof. In 2014, Tribal Sessions was the most successful new party in Sankey’s Ibiza history and 2015 is shaping up to be even bigger with the likes of Argy, Shlomi Aber, Alan Fitzpatrick, Robert Hood, Josh Wink, and more bringing it.
