Glitterbox announces Space Ibiza residency
Glitterbox, the most-talked about new Ibiza party in recent years, has announced a move to Space Ibiza to host the Terraza. The weekly Friday party will open on 12th June, and run for 18 weeks until 25th September.
As the island’s most iconic club, and with an unparalleled musical history, Space Ibiza is the perfect home for Glitterbox’s new adventure. This collaboration is a clear statement of intent and marks a fundamental change to Friday nights in Ibiza.
Joining the Glitterbox line-up this summer is an international hit list of DJs and performers, playing the most beautiful and best-loved sounds across the full hemisphere of house and disco. Very special guests Fatboy Slim, Hercules & Love Affair, Groove Armada , Todd Terje and Julio Bashmore will appear together with a host of Glitterbox residents Joey Negro, Dimitri From Paris, Horse Meat Disco and Simon Dunmore and an extended cast that includes Tensnake, Breakbot, David Morales, Roger Sanchez, Todd Terry, Claudio Coccoluto, John Morales, Aeroplane, Juan MacLean, The Revenge, Lovebirds, FCL, Tim Deluxe, Kings Of Tomorrow, Mousse T, Norman Jay, Heller & Farley, DJ Pippi, Smokin’ Jo, The Shapeshifters, Luke Solomon, Copyright, Purple Disco Machine, DJ Antz, Mr Doris, Mo’ Funk and Shovell (Live On Percussion) who will all make guest appearances over the season, with more artists yet to be announced.
In 2014, Glitterbox arrived amid a sense of excitement sparked by on-island word of mouth and an understanding that Defected were setting out to create a different kind of party; one that combined a ‘music first’ policy with a sense of glamour – eschewing the flashy gimmicks and the homogenous thud that had become ubiquitous elsewhere.
Glitterbox’s weekly soundtrack of expertly curated DJ sets of classic and contemporary house, disco and electronic music, drew a loyal following of locals, industry, club freaks, workers and fashion folk. As the buzz reached far beyond the Balearics, visiting international clubbers came in droves. By August, and then throughout September, Glitterbox was selling out on a weekly basis, culminating in a typically hedonistic, riotous closing party that brought back the original spirit of Ibiza.
Staying true to its intentions, Glitterbox’s musical highlights were many. Hercules & Love Affair played two incredible live shows, India PA, while DJ sets came from Kenny Dope, Horse Meat Disco, Todd Terry, Dimitri From Paris and Joey Negro.
But that was last summer and just the beginning. A new season beckons. There are memories to be made, and more fun to be had. The first guests for Glitterbox at Space Ibiza 2015 parties will be announced later this month.
Released on 31st May, Defected presents Glitterbox Ibiza 2015 is a new mix album that represents the nights musical spirit. Compiled and mixed by Defected’s founder Simon Dunmore, the 3 mix set features some the biggest names in disco and house music including Chaka Khan, Ten City, Salsoul Orchestra, Rare Pleasure and Lana Del Rey.
