Clubbing destinations don't come much bigger than Ibiza, and Sankeys has been bringing a slice of historic UK club culture to the White Isle since it launched way back in 2011. "Think of it as The Hacienda meets the Amnesia terrace," owner Dave Vincent said to DJ Mag when the venue first launched, and the club has been doing its legendary Manc sister proud ever since.
It's current Ibiza home has always been a nightclub, though the Sankeys team have put their own touches on the venue over the last five years — they've drafted in a bunch of world renowned street artists to decorate its walls including Belin from Madrid and Med and Ces from The Bronx, plus dropped in a mega new soundsystem they’re touting as “the best on the island”.
In 2016, established nights Tribal Sessions and Viva Warriors are back for yet another round at Sankeys Ibiza, plus promoters The Redlight and Abode are set to step up on Mondays and Fridays respectively. Then there's a brand-new party celebrating acid house and beyond, titled Dance 88/89, also launching this summer that's tipped to bring some of dance music's original UK pioneers back to the island.
There's also a slew of top-tier residents set to perform too, cue Steve Lawler, Sonny Fodera, Sam Divine, Miguell Campbell, Josh Butler and many more. Sankeys have also cooked up a new mission statement for this season and beyond — they're activity taking on and breaking more talented female DJs than ever before on the island. Go get 'em girls!
