It seems like only yesterday when we over in Ibiza for the opening parties, and now we’re already reporting on the closing shindigs – it’s been a long crazy summer, but somehow time has totally flown by. That’s what happens when you’re having fun eh?! Anyway, throughout the Ibiza season Sankeys have proven once again to be one of the island’s best spots for underground house and techno. This week they’ve announced the closing party line-ups and we’re very impressed with what they’ve come up with…
To start with Ricardo Villalobos, Duke Dumont, RPR Soundsystem, Darius Syrossian, Martin Buttrich, M.A.N.D.Y will all be performing, alongside many more. And, on the 8th October, there will be a special 20th anniversary party with DJ Sneak, Darius Syrossian, Duke Dumont, Amine Edge & DANCE and tons more all getting busy on the decks.
The dates and line-ups are as follows:
22nd September:- Chart-topping UK house sensation Duke Dumont plays his Blasé Boys Club night one last time with Jax Jones and Andy Baxter.
26th September:- AudioFly’s Flying Circus pops up one last time at their closing party with M.A.N.D.Y, Martin Buttrich live, Blond:Ish and Dance Spirit live.
27th September:- The last Magna Carta with East End Dubs, Samu.L, Chris Lattner, Chicks Luv Us and Medeew.
28th September:- VIVA does its thing one last time on with Steve Lawler, Detelf, Anek, Mathew Jonson, Sante and a special guest.
30th September:- The final FUSE of the season with main man Enzo Siragusa, as well as Julian Perez, Seb Zito, Rossko, Luke Miskelly and more.
1st October:- Darius Syrossian, Shlomi Aber, Greg Vickers, Hector Couto, Jozef K, Sidney Charles and a very special guest.
2nd October:- CUFF do their G House thing one final time with Amine Edge & Dance, garage legend DJ EZ plus Dirk Digglah, Clouded Judgement, and Stuff B2b Ennio.
7th October:- The one and only Next Wave close down their season with another set from the master Ricardo Villalobos, who will be joined by RPR Soundsystem as well as Cabanne, Nima Gorji and Francesco Del Garda.
8th October:- Marks the final final blow out that celebrates Sankeys’ 20th year in the game. Running from 10pm the line-up features Duke Dumont, Darius Syrossian, Amine Edge & Dance, Shlomi Aber, DJ Sneak, Sidney Charles, Just Be (Bushwacka!), Jozef K, Andy Baxter, Manu Gonzalez and some very special unannounced guests all take part in what is sure to be a super special send off.
Sankeys have been so consistent this season, which is quite an achievement considering they operate all through the week with different brands and events happening from Monday to Friday. The list of artists they have brought in every week is endless and full of quality, whether it be old school heroes like Danny Tenaglia to more recent up-and-comers like East End Dubs. 20 years in the business and still pushing forward.
We can’t wait to get stuck into their closing parties and we’re sure you’ll have a blast if you do the same, so make sure you make a beeline for Sankeys if you’re on the island for the closings!
