Following a huge 2015 season, Glitterbox will return to Space Ibiza this year, hosting Friday nights from 3 June to Friday 23 September 2016 for what will be the legendary Ibiza club’s final season. At its heart, Glitterbox aims to embody the idea that the dancefloor should be the focus of a truly transformative night: something of a rarity in the DJ-idolising culture of the modern club.
Every Friday throughout last season Space was transformed into a glittering, hedonistic playground, with extravagant live shows and an eclectic soundtrack, complimented by regular appearances by PAs and local DJs.
Already confirmed for the 2016 season are Basement Jaxx, Dimitri From Paris, Todd Terry, Joey Negro, Roger Sanchez, Simon Dunmore, Purple Disco Machine and DJ Pippi. The full season lineup will be revealed in the next few weeks, but expect a collection of talent, all of whom will be given free rein to construct sets that draw from the rich, expansive musical history of house and disco. Savage dance crew Hot Heels will also return in 2016.
“The reaction to Glitterbox in Ibiza last season was one of overwhelming positivity,” says Simon Dunmore. “DJs that have real heritage, can read a crowd and know when to drop the right record deserve a platform on the island and I believe it was these bookings that elevated the party’s profile. The Terrace is a perfect venue for Glitterbox, so the decision to stay there for a second season was an easy one. To be involved in Space’s final Ibiza season is a privilege, and we intended to make it the go-to night on Fridays throughout the summer.”
