The launch of Sankeys Ibiza last year was a rocky one. Hampered by financial and production issues in its opening weeks the Mancunian clubbing institution had a pretty rough time of things. But gritty northern spirit won out, and over the course of their first season on the White Isle, Sankeys Ibiza got over its teething problems to prove itself one of the best venues out there, punching above its weight to build a rep that stood against the big boys.
It's a rep that's caught the eye of house music's biggest players and this year the club boasts more top-end residencies than Beverly Hills. Chief amongst these is trend-setter Diynamic, the Hamburg based label run by Solomun which is home to some of the brightest stars in the house firmament. Those stars will be shining brightly every Tuesday at the Diynamic Neon Night, a strictly family affair that'll see Solmun lay down his thick grooves alongside stablemates including Stimming, David August, H.O.S.H and Kollektiv Turmstrasse. The whole thing kicks off on July 10th, and runs until September 11th.
As if that isn't enough, we've got a season pass for you and a friend that'll get you into every Diynamic party for free. Come September you'll know Solomun better than you know your own mum. To be in with a chance of winning simply tell us (firstname.lastname@example.org)...
