Glitterbox recently announced a move to Space Ibiza to host the Terraza. The weekly Friday party will open on 12 June, and run for 16 weeks until 25 September. This collaboration is a statement of intent and marks a fundamental change to Friday nights in Ibiza. Joining the Glitterbox line-up this summer will be Fatboy Slim, Hercules & Love Affair, Todd Terje, Groove Armada, and Julio Bashmore.
These DJs will appear together with a host of Glitterbox residents Joey Negro, Dimitri From Paris, Horse Meat Disco and Simon Dunmore and an extended cast that includes Tensnake, Breakbot, Roger Sanchez, Todd Terry, Aeroplane, Juan MacLean, The Revenge, David Morales, Kings Of Tomorrow, Claudio Coccoluto, Norman Jay, John Morales, FCL, Tim Deluxe, Lovebirds, DJ Pippi, Smokin’ Jo, Heller & Farley, Mousse T, The Shapeshifters, Luke Solomon, Purple Disco Machine, Copyright, DJ Antz, Mr Doris, Mo’ Funk and Shovell (Live On Percussion) who will all make guest appearances over the season, with more acts yet to be announced.
Todd Terry, Joey Negro, Horse Meat Disco, The Revenge and Simon Dunmore play the Glitterbox Opening Party on Friday 12 June.
In 2014, Glitterbox’s weekly soundtrack DJ sets of classic and contemporary house, disco and electronic music apparently drew a loyal following of locals, industry, club freaks, workers and
fashion folk. By August, and then throughout September, Glitterbox was apparently selling out on a weekly basis, culminating in a typically hedonistic, riotous closing party that brought back the
original spirit of Ibiza.
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.
If it’s anything like the 2014 version, which is one of our favourite albums of the year, then this will be an essential purchase for the summer.
