Ibiza 2015 was a big season for Glittebox, it was moving to a new home on the Space Terrace, having captured the imagination of clubbers on and off the island the previous year, could it make the jump to the next level? The short answer is yes, the Friday Space residency was one of the summer success stories with glowing reports on the party coming from everyone that experienced it. As Space gets set for one final Ibiza season, Glitterbox has announced that it will return on Friday night, taking up residence from Friday June 03 to Friday September 23.

Pre-Glitterbox, the clubbing capital was split into two definitive camps, those that like their beats repetitive in dark rooms and those that lived for the breakdown and the confetti cannon. Glitterbox offered a colourful alternative to both, a house and disco flavor with sexy dancers and provocative performers. It has been a complete success, transforming Space Terrace into a hedonistic playground, where extravagant live performances and an eclectic soundtrack made Friday one of the biggest nights in the weekly calendar.

Glitterbox is all set for Ibiza 2016, with already confirmed artists such as Basement Jaxx, Dimitri From Paris, Todd Terry, Joey Negro, Roger Sanchez, Simon Dunmore, Purple Disco Machine and DJ Pippi. It promises to be another summer packed with some of the best artists of the last three decades, from genuinely experienced house legends to exciting new talent, offering a unique blend of cool house and disco. The full season will be revealed in the next few weeks but Glitterbox fans can be confident in another summer of fantastic DJ line-ups, provocative appearances and exciting production where the emphasis is on the dancefloor.

“The reaction to Glitterbox in Ibiza last season was one of overwhelming positivity” says Simon Dunmore. “DJs that have real heritage, can read a crowd and know when to drop the right record deserve a platform on the island and I believe it was these bookings that elevated the party’s profile. The Terrace is a perfect venue for Glitterbox, so the decision to stay there for a second season was an easy one. To be involved in Space’s final Ibiza season is a privilege, and we intended to make it the go-to night on Fridays throughout the summer.”
