The announcements for most of the opening parties are In and we can honestly say that this year has us more excited than ever before.
Not only is it the infamous Lord of the Dancefloor, Carl Cox’s last official season at Space in Ibiza, it is also unarguably the biggest list of the biggest names to hit the island EVER.
May and June are set to see Ibiza wake up in style and the size of the productions and special effects will be unimaginable, with every club pulling out the big guns.
Expect huge things and even bigger hangovers in 2016!
Circo Loco @ DC10
We are starting with DC10 and Circo Loco as unless you have been living in a hole, you would have heard rumours that DC10 would NOT be opening its doors this season. Well, we are happy to announce that this is not true and not only is it not true, but party giants Circo Loco are going to be opening the season in theor usual, crazy style. Artists rumoured to play are Maceo Plex, Tania Vulcano and Art Department to name a few. Get yourself a flkight before 23rd May to ensure you see this one
Circle in your calendar May 1st, because you are not going to want to miss the ‘force’ with which this opening party hits you.
David Vincent is really pushing the boundaries and has extended the season against previous years to ensure that their Star Wars theme has the right date to really make an impact- “May the 1st Be With You” get your tickets here
Last years massive 2 day party say artists such as Tube & Berger, Noir, Adam Beyer and Manu Gonzalez take to the decks and we are preety sure there will be much of the same in 2016.
Other nights to watch out for on Sankeys calendar;
Sessions Opening Party; 7th May
Unusual Suspects Opening Party: 12th May
Redlight & Shelter Opening Party: 23rd May
Dance 88/89 Opening Party: 25th May
Dust yourself off from Circo Loco and follow Maceo Plex over to Pacha on 24th May for ‘Mosaic by Maceo’. Cards are being kept very close to chests at the moment, but if last years HYTE concept at Amnesia is anything to go by, you want tickets for this.
Pure Pacha with Bob Sinclair returns on 21st May to kick start your summer and Martin Solveig is back from 25th May.
For all you Guetta fans, he is back where he belongs behind the cherry decks from 2nd June.
Ushuaia Day Party Opener
No one does a day party quite like Ushuaia and their opening party is one of the most talked about of the season. The line-up is always stella, with David Guette, Avicii, Marco Carola and Armin Van Buuren just a few of the star studded acts to have performed in the past.
This particular opener is usually a bit more techno however with so many names, we are making sure that we are there for it! Come join us and Richie Hawtin, Hot Since 82, Guy Gerber, Andrea Olivia, Hito, Joris Voorn, Los Suruba and Maya Jane Coles on 28th May for the party of the season!
As we previously mentioned, this is the last season that Space Ibiza will open before Ushuaia take over, so to make sure you see a piece of Ibiza
history, you NEED to have tickets this year. The party is going to be so big this year that the car park is being turned into a fiesta and you can bet your last pound that the line-up will be massive. May 28th is a date that will go down in Space history!
Also one worth a mention is ‘Loving Ibiza’ festival on 30th April; with Wally Lopez, Danny Serrano and many more keeping you jumping.
Earlier this month, we focused on the phenomenon that is Glitterbox and interviewed Simon Dunmore, who told us to make sure we kept an eye on the 3rd June…so we did and he has not disappointed. Kenny Dope, Todd Terry, Dimitri From Paris and Simon himself all playing.
As many of you will know, it is the last season of Carl Cox at Space, which will not disappoint, kicking off 14th June with ‘Music is Revolution-The Final Chapter’. Kick it off with ‘Cox on the open waves with ‘Float Your Boat’ before heading inland for more of the same, dont miss this grab your tickets here
Amnesia Night Opening
Amnesia is famous for two things; Ice canons that will knock you off your feet and big names and this year is no different. Both the main room and the terrace have lots to offer and the great thing is you can easily go between the two. As it shares a date with Ushuaia, you may have an overlap, but for us a perfect day would be in the sunshine at Ushuaia and then heading over to Amnesia to dance through the night.
Ibiza super brand Hed Kandi is back from 30th may onwards with the Ocen Beach opener three days earlier on 27th May
No introduction needed for iconic Café Mambo, who’s doors reopen on Friday 13th May, with the usual mix of big names and new top talent seeing in the sunset
