As shown by the partnership with Space Ibiza (the island’s most iconic club with an unparalleled musical history), creative collaboration – and fun – is at Glitterbox’s heart. Overseen by Glitterbox Creative Director, Mark Herman, this year brings new creative elements to the event including the artist, TradeMark, who designed the season’s artwork, whilst masterminding the performance side, club collective “Savage” will consist of three different dance crews (Sink The Pink, Hot Heels & Nutbags) who will all bring their own unique energy to the night.

TradeMark, aka UK artist, Mark Wardel, is the renowned painter whose figurative work explores the interface between art, commerce, and desire. After finishing art school, he became known as the “court painter” of the Blitz and other London café society hang outs, producing portraits of Boy George, Steve Strange, and Japan’s David Sylvian. Wardel’s artworks are in the collections of Kanye West and Naomi Campbell, and his work has been featured in GQ Style, Dazed and Confused, iD, and beyond. In 2013, he produced a sell-out edition of 300 Bowie-silver Duke life mask sculptures for the V&A museum, as part of the David Bowie Is exhibition, of which Bowie himself purchased two.

“Savage” is produced by East Creative Agency, the team behind some of London’s most outrageous club nights and events – including Sink The Pink and XOYO’s Gloria’s. They’ll be bringing their East London performers, choreographers, and costume designers to Glitterbox, bringing the finest dancers, drag queens and club kids together to celebrate fashion, decadence, self-expression and hedonism – all to the best soundtrack on the island. Jono Kitchens of Hot Heels will choreograph performances, with costumes designed by Jay Barry Matthews.

Glitterbox’s opening party takes place on Friday 12 June, featuring Todd Terry, Joey Negro, Horse Meat Disco, The Revenge and Simon Dunmore, joined by unique performers from dance crews hosted by “Savage”. Further details will be announced soon.

ABOUT GLITTERBOX

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’s PA was mesmerising, while DJ sets from Kenny Dope, Horse Meat Disco, Todd Terry, Dimitri From Paris and Joey Negro all added to the Glitterbox Ibiza legend.

Released on 31 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.
