Glitterbox has become a staple for all clubbers worth their salt in recent years, paying homage to the beat that kick started everything, disco. There is a sprinkling of classic house and modern floor movers dropped in, making it one of the most fun of the Ibiza parties. Add a collective of performers packed with attitude bringing lashings of glamour and you have the formula for an unforgettable extravaganza. One of the foundations of the Glitterbox success is its ability to mix some of the hottest new talent with genuine icons of the global dance scene and Friday August 17 is no exception.

Basement Jaxx are no stranger to Ibiza, the UK based DUO has been responsible for some of the biggest club cuts of the last two decades. Nowadays, they concentrate more on their DJ sets, which is great news for anyone that loves house and disco, the duo is more than capable of moving the floor. When it comes to distinctive figures behind the booth, there is no doubt that the gold mask and long hooked nose of Claptones disguise offers immediate indication as to who is in charge. The talented DJ/ producer is a Glitterbox favourite. Talking about favourites, Todd terry and Jellybean Benitez have forgotten more sabout house and disco than most of us will ever know! Melon Bomb is one of the most exciting of the island collectives, a successful party in its own right, it’s always a fantastic inclusion on the Glitterbox line-up. Friday August 17 is set to be another scorcher, see you on the floor!
