Taking it back to a simpler time where multi coloured t-shirts and bucket hats were the norm Dance 88/89 will transform Sankeys into the reincarnated summer of love. Gossip and rumours have been rife across the island with hedonists and hippies to tourists and travellers taking a punt on who will feature on the bill.
DJ Alfredo one of the islands original residents joins Bushwacka, Danny Rampling, Nicky Hollowa, Mr C, Clara Da Costa, Judge Jules, Graeme Park and Grooverider as they rotate amongst special guests and reunions for a summer of Dance 88/89.
Sankeys Ibiza is the sister of the legendary flagship club in Manchester that has contributed immensely to UK club culture. Opened in 2011, the club has gone from strength to strength, building up a strong base of residents with the likes of Darius Syrossian, Steve Lawler, Duke Dumont, Amine Edge & DANCE, Greg Vickers, Sidney Charles and Hector Couto just to name a few.
Situated in Playa D’en Bossa, the club is open seven nights per week catering to many styles of house and techno, housed under a 3000 capacity, four-roomed venue consisting of The Basement, The Lab, Spektrum and The Boutique.
The heart of Sankeys, The Basement in Ibiza is designed to look almost exactly the same as its Mancunian counterpart to give it that “home away from home” feeling for the British clubbers and also to give that authentic Sankeys Manchester clubbing feel to anyone who hasn’t experienced the parent club yet. With a low ceiling, state of the art LED lighting and an ever so powerful Void sound system expect a high octane clubbing experience unlike any club in Ibiza.
Based off the legendary Mancunian club The Haçienda, The Lab could be seen as the polar opposite to The Basement. With high ceilings, this room gives an amazing warehouse feel, best suited to the techno DJs that Tribal Sessions has been booking over the summer.
Spektrum is another room based off the Manchester club. A small room with a boutique view gives you a more intimate feel, topped with ceiling lights inspired by Berlin’s Watergate which gives the room a feeling of colour and warmth. Don’t expect this room to be reserved for the smaller DJs; we’ve had Len Faki play in this room!
