On Friday 3rd June Clubbers App to Ibiza attended Glitterbox opening party at Space Ibiza.
This opening night of classic funky house and disco was brought to us Friday by the well-established Defected brand. It comes as no surprise that expectations were huge but as with the majority of Ibiza’s big nights, they rarely disappoint, this is Space after all!
Happy. So very very happy! Smiley cheery fun was had throughout the night and the elated party goers and us here at CATI were revelling in Space Ibiza’s famous celestial terrace and in the smaller side room El Salon.
Dressed to the nines, with a lot of attention to detail focusing on the party’s title…we were never so happy to be covered in glitter. Everyone was lining up for face and body paint with an array of different looks being flaunted on the dancefloor. Hot Heels, the UK drag troupe, performed a flamboyant choreographed dance piece with regular appearances on the podium and interaction with the clubbers. There’s something very alluring about these elegant beauties, they seemed so at home in their glittery heaven, almost angelic.
Glitterbox has transcended from Booom to Space with startling ease, Space is the perfect location for its potential final frontier. The dancefloor remained busy at all times and we were privy to appearances from Kenny Dope, Dimitri from Paris, Todd Terry and Defected’s own Simon Dunmore, who founded the brand.
It all climaxed with a live set from vocal legend Barbara Tucker who the crowd went wild for when she appeared in her green wig. The season’s line up is looking strong with the next party Friday 10th June seeing Basement Jaxx, The Shapeshifters and Joey Negro.
We will look forward to another very glittery night, fantastic opening!
