Wax Da Jam Shape The Future

Posted on May 21, 2018

Words: Iain Thomson

Nightmares On Wax has proudly announced a ‘Shape The Future’ theme for their Ibiza mini festival Wax Da Jam, which returns to the famous Las Dalias in 2018 for a series of monthly gatherings between June and September. Opening on Thursday, June 28th from 8pm until 4am, this year’s motto is a homage to the latest long player from the talented artist, with the unique party all set for its ninth summer season.

‘Shape The Future’ was universally accepted by fans and music critics around the world on its release and the global tour to promote the album is still ongoing. Ibiza 2018 sees the Nightmares On Wax band deliver a full live show for the very first time, under the sun and moon of the Iconic Ibiza venue. Wax Da Jam is the only place on the island to catch Nightmares On Wax live this summer and also to see DJ E.A.S.E. perform. Joining the talented DJ during the season will be a host of recognisable island names as well as a select few guests. The opening party sees Nightmares On Wax (live) in the garden alongside Buckley and KAZIM KAZIM KAZIM, while the club features a NOW DJ set alongside party favourite Negghead. Not intending to wish away the summer before it starts but the closing party on Thursday September 6 sees a special back to back between NOW (DJ set) and Defected/ Glitterbox boss Simon Dunmore!

Wax Da jam prides itself in maintaining a conscious philosophy to its party and that continues in the monthly Thursday party for 2018. Working alongside Last Night A DJ Saved My Life Foundation (LNADJ), adopting the Oceanic standard of going strawless at every event. George Evelyn, aka DJ E.A.S.E. said; “The people make the party – so where better to spread positive messages of change than here?” Wax da Jam is no stranger to collaborating with LNADJ Foundation – a charitable organisation that creates opportunities for the dance music industry to make a positive impact on children living in crisis – last summer’s efforts resulted in the building of a water well I the Ugandan village of Kasebwela, with a 330 strong community now having access to clean water! Not only can you enjoy the finest beats from truly talented artists in one of the island’s most spectacular and mystical venues, surrounded by like-minded people, but you can do so in the knowledge that others will benefit greatly from your effort! George sums it up perfectly; “As an ambassador it’s my duty to raise awareness and support. When you party with Wax Da Jam, you’re helping children in need for years to come.”
