Sankeys Awakens Ibiza 2016

Posted on February 23, 2016

Ibiza 2016 sees Sankeys Ibiza shake things up once again. After a party to celebrate its summer weekly schedule announcement, the popular underground space has confirmed that it will be the first of the major Ibiza clubs to open its doors for the season, with a stonking line up for Sankeys Awakens Ibiza on Sunday May 1. Club owner David Vincent said, “I can’t wait to open up the whole venue for Summer 2016, earlier than we ever have before too. We’ve had a very strong Winter, becoming much more integrated into the culture of the island and I’m sure we’ll reap the benefits of this over the summer.”

Given the strength of the summer line up and also the talent on show on Sunday May 1 , it’s no wonder owner David Vincent is excited about opening the club earlier than ever before. If there is one thing that Ibiza in the winter has proved, it is that it is ready to turn out for a talented line up and that is something that Sankeys Ibiza has in spades. Viva Warrior Steve Lawler headlines the event, alongside Kölsch (DJ Set), whose performances at Ants in recent seasons has seen him become the darling of the Ibiza underground community. Kink deliver a special live performance and Sankeys favourite Miguel Campbell returns, as does Lee Walker and the soon to be announced members of the Team Sankeys – the collective of female DJs that entered David Vincent’s ‘Break The Glass Ceiling’ female DJ project.

Those that have been filling the famous club during its winter programme, where Sankeys Sabados has featured 12 of the island’s best female DJs alongside regulars like Manu Gonzalez and Matt Jam Lamont will be familiar with the female talent pool that the club has assembled, not to mention some amazing out of season gatherings. The free party continues until April 23 with Sunday May 1 the first time that the Lab and Terrace will open this year. In true Sankeys tradition, the opening salvo will offer a clubbing marathon – 12 hours of the best music from 6.30pm until 6.30 am, with the early evening free BBQ on the terrace kicking things off.

David Vincent has every reason to be upbeat about the fast approaching opening and the following sixth season of the Playa d’en Bossa club. “Our line-up for the opening party is very much a representation of the sound of Sankeys”, he explained. “Always the first name on any Sankeys bill is Steve Lawler, the King of the Basement. Then we’ve got KiNK, who was recently voted number one live act in the world on the Resident Advisor 2015 poll. I’m really happy to see him blow up, we’ve been booking him from the beginning. As for the others,” David continues. “We just had to have Kölsch back for this year’s opening after he destroyed it at the closing of Tribal Sessions last season. If you add to this Lee Walker, whose ‘Freak Like Me’ record has to be the hottest track on the planet right now, alongside Tribal Sessions resident Miguel Campbell, who just continues to rise and who I have great hopes for, then you have something really strong, fresh and totally Sankeys. It’s our sixth year and I’ve got a sixth sense that this is the beginning of the most historical season of Sankeys, in fact I’m 100% sure it will be.”
