From the 12th of July until the 13th of September, DJ / producer Ferry Corsten will hold a weekly residency in the brand new club Sankeys on Ibiza. Every Tuesday he will host the innovative and spectacular event 'Full on Ferry; Ibiza'. The event is very similar to the previous 'Full on Ferry' events that Ferry hosted for three years in a row in a sold out Ahoy in Rotterdam, The Netherlands. These exhilirating and major successful editions have given the event the global reputation of being one of the most groundbreaking and definite must-see events in the dance-scene.
Full on Ferry is an event where the various musical facets of Ferry Corsten can be expressed. It is also a festive reunion of his fellow DJ's and producers. At 'Full on Ferry; Ibiza' Ferry will invite various artists that he admires and respects and/or have influenced his music. With a weekly varying line-up, the artists will play back-2-back sets with Ferry in the mainroom and in another area of the intimate club setting of Sankeys, the audience can treat themselves to various extended dj sets. Aside from the communicated line-up, fans will also be treated to surprise acts! So you never really know what you're going to get.
Every week Ferry will be accompanied by some of today's best, most in demand international DJs and acts as his special guests, no other than handpicked by himself, to rock the dance floors at Sankeys together. World renowned DJ's such as German duo Cosmic Gate, USA based musical geniuses Gabriel & Dresden, Egyptian's finest Aly & Fila, Dutch hero Marco V, UK trance legends Lange and Solarstone, our own Swedish House Man Zoo Brazil and fresh talents such as Sied van Riel, Bart Claessen, W&W, Mat Zo, Virtual Vault and Rafaël Frost are just the first few names we can reveal now. Full line up and weekly listings will be announced in the next few weeks - be prepared for the unexpected!
Ferry Corsten: 'I'm really excited to be part of the Iaunch of Sankey's Ibiza this year and even more excited to launch the Full on Ferry concept in Ibiza. It's a great celebration with 2 new great names that are coming together to the island.'
Sankeys Ibiza is a brand new state of the art club with four rooms and features the revolutionary VOID Accoustics Soundsystem which has been voted best Soundsystem of the year. LED walls, LED cage, LED ceiling with the VOID Soundsystem in there. Sankeys Ibiza is located in Playa d'en Bossa.
David Vincent (Sankeys Ibiza): 'We have a widespread program all summer long. Ranging from techno to house to trance. I am very delighted to have an artist of this caliber being part of the program all summer long. Ferry's reputation for being a pioneer of dance is worldwide known and therefore I am very proud to have him on our line up at Sankeys Ibiza.'
Ferry Corsten celebrates his 20th anniversary as a producer this year, possesses an impressive amount of golden records and has consistently been voted as one of the top 10 DJ's in the world. At the moment he is working on his artist album, that will be released later this year, on Ferry's recordlabel 'Flashover Recordings'. The first single of the album is called 'Feel It!' and has recently been released. It has already taken dancefloor s by storm and is being played on radiostations worldwide.
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!
