Words: Iain Thomson

We Are Balearic returns on August 27, going back in time to ’87 for a 30-year celebration of the biggest acid house and Balearic beats. Taking over London’s Broadway House from 4pm until 4am, the popular party has assembled some of the finest exponents of dance music from the last three decades, including the Baron of Balearic himself, Danny Rampling.

On the back of some fantastic previous events, We Are Balearic has a strong following and its latest dalliance into the nostalgic looks set to cement that even further. Offering a musical journey that travels through three decades of house and Balearic beats, bringing back memories for those that lived it first time round and creating them for those too young to remember. Danny Rampling was one of the early pioneers of the sound, his midweek Shoom parties in London attracted clubbers from all over the UK, where huge white sails created a cool backdrop for a Balearic soundtrack.


August 27 in Broadway House, Fulham sees We Are Balearic invite some of the seminal characters from back in the day, including Nicky Holloway, one of those originals that dropped into Ibiza in the eighties, and returned with ideas that would transform how we spent our nights on the dancefloor forever! Ibiza is represented too as Essential Ibiza’s Jo Mills flies back for the occasion, taking the roof terrace on a magical musical journey. Hot on the heels of her Escucha party catching headlines on the island, not to mention her weekly residencies that see her delivering a cool vine overlooking Playa d’en Bossa beach for Tanit Ibiza. Wherever you look on the line up, there are familiar names that helped shape the early scene and have played an integral part in its subsequent evolution, including Danny Rampling, Nicky Holloway, Lisa Loud, Jo Mills, Steve Lee, Dean Griffin, Groover Washington, Tony Wilson, Rob Parish, Anna C, Wilkie Wilkinson, Parky, Rob Fung and Alex Savvides.
