Sankeys brings 2012 to a close – and opens up its 2013 account – with, for the first time, two NYE parties. Taking place both in Manchester and Ibiza, the club this summer has celebrated its 18th anniversary in the UK and heralded the continuation of a new adventure on the White Isle. After two seasons in Ibiza, and by partly mirroring their Manchester club’s success, although adding some uniquely European feel to the project, club owner David Vincent’s vision is starting to evolve.
David Vincent: “Our second season in Ibiza has been fantastic. I feel we have really come into our own in 2012, not only bringing a taste of our underground ethos from Manchester to here, but also to create something entirely new. We’ve had some great residencies, especially from Solomun’s Neon Nights and Steve Lawler’s parties, as well as our own Carnival parties, Enzo Siragusa’s wild Fuse parties and occasional shows from Bugged Out!, Krankbrother, Mulletover and loads more through the season.
“To me, it feels like people have really “got it” – or got us – and what we are all about, from the island’s workers to clubbers from all over the world. We have brought the spirit of Manchester here. It’s been masses of hard work, and I can safely say this year has really put us on the map in Ibiza, so from me it’s a huge thanks to everyone who has been involved. And it’s felt right to keep the party going here every Saturday through the autumn, and then we couldn’t resist doing our first ever NYE party here too, starring Tobi Neumann and some of our residents. Over in Manchester for NYE, we have got a brilliant party lined up with some of our favourite guests. I am massive fans of The Martinez Brothers, and in Phil Weeks and Richy Ahmed we have got two house music masters.”
