WE LOVE SUNDAYS AT SPACE: COMING UP IN AUGUST
As the halfway point of the We Love Sundays At Space Summer season approaches, the list of highlights gets longer and longer. The Opening Party already seems like a lifetime ago and the last eight weeks blur into a hazy memory of sunny afternoons, sweaty nights and fantastic music. Taking a look ahead at the month to come August looks set to provide as many talking points as the previous eight parties, starting things off on August 3rd with a very special event in collaboration with BBC Radio 1 and the fantastic Essential Mix as part of the Radio 1 Ibiza Weekender.
For this special event We Love resident Skream hosts the Discoteca as part of his monthly Skreamizm takeovers and his set will be recorded live for broadcast on the Essential mix. Joining him in the main room for the first time in 7 years of playing We Love (all previous appearances have been on the Terrace) Âme plays a much anticipated Techno set. Dense & Pika return for the second year running representing the cutting edge of Techno and fresh from his highly acclaimed Essential mix Jasper James makes his We Love and Space debut. Also appearing Joris Voorn plays his only Terrace set of the Summer after a fantastic main room appearance back in June and we are very happy to welcome DJ W!LD to the We Love fold for a one off performance. Technasia completes the bill on the Terrace and plays an extended closing set. We Love the Essential Mix!
Put simply August 10th looks set to be THE event of the Summer. On the second Sunday in August We Love present Loco Dice’s birthday party aptly titled “AUGUST X“. For this exclusive We Love Sundays At Space event Dice has invited his friends and contemporaries, covering Space’s 5 rooms from start to finish. The 15 hour event will see 2 appearances from the man himself, an afternoon Sunset Terrace set and a main Terrace closing set. Joining Dice on the night are Chris Liebing, Chuck Flask, Cirillo, Crack-T, Guti, Josh Wink, Martin Buttrich, Nightmares On Wax (DJ Set), Pulshar, Robert Dietz, Sin Plomo, tINI, Tobi Neuman, Vladimir Ivkovic and some VERY special guests. We Love Loco Dice!
Three weeks into August and there is not letting up as Disclosure present their third exclusive Wild Life event at We Love Sundays At Space. Everyone who has attended either of the two previous Wild Life shows will testify to just how mind blowing these have been and the lineup for August 17th looks set to trump even the previous two. Disclosure are at the very apex of the current dance music crossover phenomenon and the bill around them reflects a mix of the new cool (Skream, Bicep, Dusky), the old school (Carl Craig) and the effortlessly cool (Henrik Schwarz). A varied mix of guests for sure but all with a common theme, fantastic music and each amazing artists in their own rights. We Love Wild Life!
August 24th sees the return of the original We Love Space resident Danny Tenaglia. The role Danny Tenaglia played in shaping the history of We Love, Space and Ibiza in general cannot be overstated. His residency defined an era in dance music history and paved the way for modern DJing. Danny plays an extended Terrace set and will be joined by another Terrace statesman and We Love resident Paul Woolford. Completing the bill in this room the ascendant Hot Since 82 makes his only We Love Sundays appearance of the Summer. Over in the Discoteca another original We Love Sundays At Space resident Sasha continues his Last Night On Earth takeovers inviting special guests Julio Bashmore and Catz ‘N Dogz to join him. We Love Sasha, We Love Danny Tenaglia!
August 31st completes a 5 Sunday month and We Love close August out in Style. Superstylers Groove Armada are back on the Terrace for their only Space appearance of the Summer. Their shows over the last few years in this room have become the stuff of legend and being their only one of the Summer this set is sure to blow the roof clean off. We Love favourite Kölsch makes a welcome return and Fuse residents Enzo Siragusa and Rossko play back to back for their debut Terrace gig. Over in the Discoteca James Zabiela hosts Born Electric once again and invites Daniel Avery who plays back to back with Ivan Smagghe and Ben UFO who plays back to back with Midland. A trio of B2Bs, the return of Kölsch, maestro James Zabiela and Groove Armada’s only Terrace performance of the year, We Love Sundays At Space!
As well as all this action every week the We Love Sundays At Space experiences covers Space’s 5 rooms starting on the Sunset Terrace from 16:30 with the Stripped concept. Stripped continues it’s theme of unannounced guests for the rest of the summer so no info on the coming lineups but artists who have already appeared this Summer include Shaun Reeves, Bill Patrick, Hector, Bushwacka, Jordan Peak, Marco Yanes, Rossko, Ryan Crosson and loads more.
To keep unto date with all thing We Love keep an eye on their website, blog, Facebook and twitter.
