A grassroots party created by a humble, island-resident ABODE is the place designed for everyone . Whether that be in its crowd or the artists that get booked to play, the inclusive, forward-thinking party stays true to its roots. Having begun time in London, the house and tech-house party has seen a phenomenal rise to becoming one of the events to routinely sell out weeks in advance. Showcasing the best of the underground, upcoming and big-time names in electronic music, the energy ABODE’s loyal following brings is always fresh, light-hearted and in it together.
And, with a fan-base consisting largely of workers of the island themselves, local DJs brimming with raw talent intermingle with the big boys. Artists such as Ellie Cocks and Will Taylor who have put in the hours before, as those on the ground, come alongside MK, Steve Lawler, Alan Fitzpatrick and Erick Morillo. Controlling the crowds with hot house anthems and plenty of floor-filling addictive beats, ABODE has no problem whipping up its people into a frenzy.
Never stopping short of putting on party-starting acts, the production that comes in tow pack every bit of a punch as the impact ABODE has had on the island. Shades at the ready as thick, kaleidoscopic lasers take over the air adding more drama than the rapid hitting, big dropping beats that encapsulate the room. With a largely British crowd, thanks to its origins, the mastermind behind the fiesta has proven his formula for creating a party that reaches even further beyond the White Isle itself.
The soaring popularity of ABODE has seen the event turn into a self-titled festival held in London. Showcasing a similarly curated mix as that of Ibiza’s, the expanded concept makes more space to bring to light acts that can orchestrate the signature, effortless vibe. Paying it forwards in more ways than one, the creators have also set up the ABODE charity project, building homes for the less fortunate in Africa. An all-encompassing brand, for a knees-up with a conscience, in both music and values, nothing feels better than doing your bit while partying.
