As one of the UK’s oldest clubbing brands heralding originally from Leeds in the mid-90s, Hard Times returns to Ibiza in 2015 spreading non-stop vibes across the dancefloor of Vista Club. The venue sits next to Privilege’s main room, yet acts as an entirely separate club, with a Funktion One dance stack sound system and views across San Rafael, Ibiza Town and the Iberian sea. Todd Terry, Junior Sanchez, Mark Fanciulli, NiCe7, Mat Playford and Jason Bye are already announced for the opening party on 20 June. These will be joined across the 12 week run of events by the likes of Paul Woolford, DJ Sneak, Bontan, S-Man (Roger Sanchez) Felix Da Housecat, Todd Terry, Claptone, Danny Krivit, Kevin Sanderson, Doorly and Ramon Tapia.
Hard Times residency continues all season long with the closing falling on 12 September as Derrick Carter is joined by Hector Romero and Brett Johnson.
Steve Raine, Hard Times founder: “Ibiza is a massive showcase for both Hard Times The Label and our events - together with the artists we are working with on both club and label releases. There are some really exciting projects planned, both new productions and remixes using artists from both past and where we see ourselves in the future. This has never been about creating an 'all our yesterdays' club event and label. I have no interest in that, it's about taking the best from our past and allowing clubbers of today to witness our unique Hard Times experience. We always saw ourselves as pioneers in the industry and I still maintain that ethos doing our thing our way. So yes Ibiza will enable us to showcase what we are all about.”
