2014 marks the 20th anniversary of Sankeys nightclub and to celebrate this milestone, Sankeys will be programming an array of special projects and underground events.
Sankeys Soap first opened its doors in June 1994 on Jersey Street in Manchester, England. Since then the club, with its headquarters in Manchester and newly opened venues in New York and Ibiza, has been at the heart of the electronic music scene, pioneering new club nights and offering up a versatile choice of musical styles. Run by David Vincent, Sankeys is celebrating in style this summer with a series of events hooked around the number 20.
The celebrations kicked off on June the 25th with the Tribal Sessions party in Ibiza where Darius Syrossian, Gorgon City, Just Be, and US house pioneers Todd Terry & DJ Sneak played.
Sankeys will be hosting 20 events around the world from Peru to Brazil, Japan to Switzerland and Croatia to NYC. It will also be putting on its biggest event to date, a 20,000 capacity festival.
This summer there will also be the release of a Sankeys 20th Anniversary mix CD that has been put together live in the club, by resident DJ Darius Syrossian. The first disc includes all new and exclusive Syrossian tracks and the second is a collection of classics that have defined the club over the years.
In addition to this there have been 20 changes made to the club in Ibiza. Details of these will only be made known to those who make the trip down to experience The Lab, Basement and Spektrum.
