Sankeys Ibiza has announced its seven wonders for Summer 2016.
UPDATE: SOME DATES HAVE CHANGED, SO PLEASE BEFORE CHECK ON THE SANKEYS FB FANPAGE (CLICK HERE)
As we already said, summer 2016 in Ibiza will be a year season of big changes (read here), and also the club created and leaded by David Vincent presents several important news.
The first and – most – important news is that Sankeys will open its doors for the “tempered 2016” the 1st of May and will close, after three long days of parties for Halloween (next 31st of October 2016).
The week will start with “Shelter presents The Redlight”.
Both brands will unite this summer and move to a Mondaynight residency.
The party will run from the 23rd of May until the 26th of September for 19 events.
The Redlight – as said Sankeys media team – was the club’s success story from last year. The House and Garage night scored good results, with Redlight Resident Matt Jam Lamont plus artists like EZ, Sonny Fodera, Sam Divine, Todd Terry, Sam Holt, Low Steppa, Philip George and Franky Rizardo.
Another newcomer is Applebum. This new addition is a celebration of hip hop and R&B culture.
Applebum will run every Tuesday night from the 28th of June through to the 13th of September for 12 events with artists like Jazzy Jeff, Grandmaster Flash plus many more.
And then a great surprise, Dance 88/89, hosted every Wednesday night at the club from the 25th of May to the 28th of September for 19 events. We already talked about it, and here you already can read the line ups.
let’s move to Thursday night, with a new concept party: Unusual Suspects.
Unusual suspects took up a successful residency in Sankeys Ibiza throughout the winter, delivering some huge names such as Nicole Moudaber and Stacey Pullen and supported heavily by Carl Craig’s Detroit love Society. And, after the excellent winter results, Unusual Suspects will now move into the summer.
Every Thursday from the 12th of May through to the 13th of October for 23 events this party will create and deliver a distinctive sound that drives groovy, bouncy, bass-lines in the form of house and techno. And prepare yourself for great line ups.
Then, the cult Sunday party in London, Abode will be taking up residency every Friday night at the club from the 24th of June to the 16th of September for 12 events. Abode has really shaken up the scene with important bookings (think everyone from Cassy and Matthew Dear to Krankbrother and Flash Mob).
What about Tribal sessions?
Award winning and globally renowned Tribal Sessions will return also this summer, taking up Saturday nights at the club, running from the 7th of May to the 29th of October for 26 events!
The line up will include Miguel Campbell, Manu Gonzalez, Jozef K, Adam Chappell alongside very special guests soon to be announced.
And lastly, on Sunday, will return Viva Warriors from the 19th of June to the 25th of September for 15 events. Steve Lawler and his wares are ready for many new battles at Sankeys.
And David Vincent said “This summer I feel with our Seven Wonders of Sankeys Ibiza is musically the best on the planet as we have so much diversity. It’s taken me six years to refine & tinker with our musical content to a situation where I can see our current format remaining for the next few years”.
And finally, we want to mention the new idea of David Vincent that goes in the form of Sankeys Sábados, a free party with that is committed to giving female DJs a voice and the chance to play at Sankeys Ibiza on Saturdays from the 6th of February to the 23rd of April. Also included is the chance to win a worldwide residency with the Sankeys Group.
Ibiza by night already announced it (read here) and David Vincent said:“My industry have never really helped woman DJs on the same equal level as men (I don’t want to go into it right now), but there is definitely a glass ceiling happening, look at the Resident Advisor results for 2015 for proof of this. There were only 4 female DJs in the Resident Advisor top 100 2015, Nina Kraviz, tINI, Margaret Dygas & Nicole Moudaber. Surely there needs to be a more equal balance with males than there currently is. No way should it be 96% men and 4% women”.
On these premises, ready for a great Ibiza 2016 at Sankeys!

As we already said (read here) Sankeys sabados is a beautiful news of Ibiza 2016.
After the excellent results of last week, the party created by David Vincent will be back next 13th of February in the club of Playa d’En Bossa with another great guest: Dj Matt Jam Lamont!
The event will start at 9pm with a free aperitivo and will follow till 6,30 am, and the entry will be free.
David Vincent, owner of Sankeys, said:”Big news is that my favourite resident DJ Matt Jam Lamont will play a 3 HOUR SET from 1.45-4.45 at Sankeys SabadosSankeys Ibiza this Saturday, in the Basement. Over the past year not only did Matt help me set up the most successful party in Sankeys Ibiza history, The Redlight, but he got voted in his first year for best resident DJ at the Sankeys Awards. MATT JAM LAMONT (TUFF JAM) IS THE GODFATHER OF GARAGE, but don’t expect this type of set by him. He will be mixing this up some classic garage with some great house music like he did when he literately destroyed my birthday party. Alice Clark will make her debut from 12-1.45 whilst Kellie Allen will close the basement. Junior Brown JB & Jose Luis Cruz Serrano will be playing from 9-12 with those R & B, Hip Hop grooves“.

David Vincent also said:”And the fantastic SANKEYS SABADOS female residents are :- Obviously Lisa Chadderton & DAVINA MOSS were the first 2 to qualify for the residency for Sankeys Sabados (and they did a great job on their debuts). I can now say with great pleasure that the other 10 females DJs who have residencies at Sankeys Ibiza over the next 11 weeks are. Cuky Ouarrak, Stephanie Rosse, Alice Clark, Kellie Allen, Kirsty Kada Sharpe & Jade Trixie White a.k.a (JADA), Tania Moon , Max Hardcastle, Iman Amy Danielle, Marta Dlm, Luna Ibiza”.
Over the next 11 weeks I will decide who we give a worldwide sankeys residency & management contract will be based on three categories. 1. Mixing or Musical Ability 2. Promotional Skills (how they helped to promote or support Sankeys Sabados) 3. Charisma 4. Sankeys Team player“.
