Words: Iain Thomson

Friday June 9 is the date that house and disco lovers on and off the island are looking forward to, as Glitterbox opens its account in brand new Ibiza venue Hï Ibiza. With expectations for the new venue rising as its official opening gets closer, the glamorous party has announced its season protagonists as well as those that will be charged with getting the party off to a flyer. Hï Ibiza promises an advanced sound and light experience and in the hands of Dimitri From Paris, Armand Van Helden, David Morales, Todd Terry, Simon Dunmore, DJ Pippi, Barbara Tucker (Live Pa) and Shovell (Live on percussion), it promises to be a spectacular opening.

From June 9 until September 29 (excluding August 4), Glitterbox brings its unique party vibe to Hï Ibiza and, having set the bar high with its opening announcement, it proceeds to clear it on a weekly basis as the cream of the world’s house and disco talent descend on Playa d’en Bossa. Glitterbox is no stranger to the location, having successfully filled Space Ibiza during its final years. With a brand new venue, forward thinking technological capabilities and some of the biggest artists on the planet – from genuine musical pioneers to the hottest new talent – it looks certain to continue exceeding expectations.

In a relatively short period of time, Glitterbox has become one of the must-visit parties for discerning house music lovers on and off the island. It’s focus on the music, bringing together industry luminaries with the next generation of talent delivering a range of house and disco that spans decades and results in an electric atmosphere wherever it lands. Simon Dunmore, the driving force behind the concept, explains the thinking behind Glitterbox in Hï Ibiza; “Every Friday you can expect an event with an extrovert personality – an extravaganza! A party that screams “good times”. It’s where people come together to celebrate incredible dance music from across the decades, provided by DJs that know how to rock the discotheque. It’s flamboyant, spiritual and hedonistic. The ultimate dancefloor escape. We chose Hï Ibiza for Glitterbox’s Ibiza residency because it is an incredible proposition. It’s the new hot spot on the island. The people involved totally believe in the Glitterbox concept, which is still unique to the island.”
