It starts to feel like the Ibiza season is finally on its way when Sankeys Ibiza announces its season line up. In recent years the Seven Wonders of Sankeys has delivered more than its fair share of shocks, capturing the imagination on and off the island. 2016 is no different, David Vincent has been busy through the first half of the winter, planning and plotting, negotiating and delivering a weekly schedule that promises to dominate the forthcoming summer season. In true Sankeys style, the club hosted a winter get together, with a line up packed with cutting edge talent, when the Seven Wonders of Sankeys 2016 line up was first revealed. The good news is that Sankeys Ibiza will be open for 6 months, kicking off on May 1 with a massive introduction before closing with a Halloween spectacular on October 31.

The week kicks off with two existing and popular Sankeys parties combining and moving to Monday get the week off to a flyer. Shelter Presents Redlight will kick off on Monday May 23 and host 19 events before coming to a climax on September 26. Redlight offered a house and garage soundtrack last summer, with Matt jam Lamont at the helm alongside the likes of Sam Holt, EZ, Sonny Fodera, Todd Terry and Sam Divine, to name only a few. Shelter, meanwhile, was the brainchild of Ibiza Rocks W.A.R! and Sankeys and focused on the deeper, darker side of electronic music, winning an army of fans along the way. The two parties coming together offers an explosive start to the clubbing week.

Tuesday night sees newcomers Applebum making their Sankeys debut and incorporates a hip hop and R&B offering into the week, something that has whet the appetite of seasoned Sankeys followers already. June 28 is the date for the opening, with 12 events taking it through to September 13 and with names such as Jazzy Jeff and Grand Master Flash already being lined up, it promises to be a strong addition to the weekly schedule. The Wednesday party info has been leaked online previously and has all the old house heads rubbing the hands in anticipation. Dance 88/89 will more than nod to the Acid House/ Balearic sound that was instrumental in kick-starting the youth movement that would evolve into the dance music scene. Iconic names such as Alfredo, Danny Rampling, Nicky Holloway, 808 State, Graeme Park and Todd Terry, to name only a few offer a nostalgic acid house flavour that is sure to be a huge hit! Wednesday May 25 until September 28 is the dates to be looking out for.

Thursday night paves the way for the weekend with the introduction another brand new party, Unusual Suspects. Ibiza winter clubbers are no strangers to the party, having enjoyed some amazing winter vibes in its company. With guests already secured including Nicole Moudaber and Stacey Pullen and supported heavily by Carl Craig’s Detroit love Society, there can be no confusion over the intent. Kicking off on Thursday May 12, there are 23 opportunities to sample the party that has had the island dancing all winter, until it closes on October 13. Sankeys has always enjoyed a special relationship with the UK’s clubbing capital and Friday night sees another hot London collective joining the team as Abode gets set for its Sankeys debut. Friday June 24 sees the party kick off and with its talented residents flying the flag, expect a cutting edge soundtrack every week.

The weekend sees two heavyweight parties completing the weekly schedule, kicking off with Tribal Sessions on Saturday night. The globally renowned Tribal Sessions may have waited a little longer than we all liked before it dipped its toe in the Ibiza residency but since it did, it has wasted no time in becoming one of the hottest parties on the clubbing capital. May 7 sees the party kick off its Saturday night residency with 26 events running until October 26 with residents Miguel Campbell, Manu Gonzalez, Jozef K and Adam Chappell waiting to welcome a myriad of talent to the celebrated party. The weekend comes to a fitting climax with one of the strongest Ibiza parties of recent years, Viva Warriors. Steve Lawler returns on June 19 for 15 events until closing on September 25. Viva Warriors has become a staple in the diet of discerning clubbers with the label head honcho anchoring every party, joined by some of the hottest cutting edge talent from around the club world. It’s a spectacular end to a week that offers something for everyone with one of the broadest musical line-ups on the island. Sankeys Ibiza owner David Vincent is understandably upbeat about the potential of the new season. “This summer I feel with our Seven Wonders of Sankeys Ibiza is musically the best on the planet as we have so much diversity. It’s taken me six years to refine & tinker with our musical content to a situation where I can see our current format remaining for the next few years”
