Paul Oakenfold will celebrate the 30th anniversary of his seminal 1987 trip to the White Isle with a four-week “Generations” residency at Pikes Ibiza during 2017.
Commencing 2nd August, the Wednesday residency welcomes the Balearic stalwarts of DJ Alfredo, Danny Rampling, and Nicky Holloway, whom ushered in the second summer of love three decades ago.
“I want to keep this as a special moment for me, for music, for Ibiza and for everyone in the room” says Oakenfold. “It's a celebration of 30 years, with different DJs playing different things, passing by, jumping on, doing back2back - it's about sharing a mutual love of music and that's what's important.
“We've come of age as a dance music community and this is about celebrating all that we've achieved and having a great time. It's all about bringing back some of those special moments from back in the day and there's no place on earth more perfect to do that in Ibiza than Pikes.”
After recently conquering the "highest-party” on earth, the iconic DJ expressed his anticipation for playing a more intimate room: “It's amazing because I'm usually playing massive shows so to go back and play a small room for 200 people and to play three-hour sets is really special and going to be a lot of fun.”
Nancy Noise, Trevor Fund, Tilt, Danny Stubbs, Tariq Ahmed and a selection of special guests are also set to join Oakenfold behind the decks this summer at the hedonistic hotel.
In other Pikes news, DJ Harvey will be curating the grooves there every Monday from 7th August to 25th September.
