Sankeys and ABODE will join forces this summer promising a season of special Friday nights. After holding a few one-off events on the island in the past, ABODE will be making Ibiza their home from 24th June to 16th September. Here are 6 reasons why you should check out the much loved party as they make their mark on the white isle…
1.THE MOST HYPED PARTIES IN THE UK
Since launching at Studio 338 in 2014, London’s most talked about event has gone from strength to strength. The monthly Sunday parties in the capital sell out in well in advance and there’s certainly good reason for that. ABODE has gained a huge following with their day raves and will be picking up more fans as they take over the night in Ibiza.
2.THE FRESH NEW NIGHT
Anyone who has been to Ibiza in the last few years will know that Friday nights have belonged to Music On. This will be put to the test this year with the new kid in town. The confidence that ABODE have to host their nights on Friday speaks volumes. If Carola and his crew aren’t really your thing then you need to get yourself down to Playa Den Bossa where you can be close to the music at the intimate surroundings of Sankeys.
3.THE LINE UPS
ABODE always steps up the mark with their line ups at home and Ibiza will be no different. The finest names in house and techno will be doing their thing behind the decks all summer. The debut season will see acts such as Alex Arnout, Alexis Raphael, ANOTR, Ben Pearce, Bodhi, Citizenn, Ejeca, Franky Rizardo, German Brigante, Huxley, Latmun, Lauren Lane, Leftwing & Kody, The Mambo Brothers, Max Chapman, Oliver $, Rob Cockerton, Secondcity, Solardo, Sonny Fodera and Yousef play for them.
4.THE HOMEGROWN TALENT
Along with having household names, ABODE prides itself on giving new talent a chance to shine. They have a real family feel going on with their events and have created a platform for up and coming DJ’s to showcase what they can do. Expect to be seriously impressed this summer by residents Artikal, Ellie Cocks, GW Harrison, Jimmy Switch, Lindsey Matthews, Taylor and Will Taylor
5.THE EXTRA EVENTS
As previously mentioned, ABODE has held some special one night only parties on the island in summers gone by. This year however will see the brand be taken to a new level as they look to cater for everyone in Ibiza. London’s famous party will be making serious waves as they launch their aptly named ABOAT sunset boat parties. The four cruises will set sail on 26th June, 31st July, 21st August and 18th September. On top of this, workers on the island will also be treated to free parties in different venues. LYT nightclub in San Antonio’s West End played host last month as did Savannah’s on May 19 and things will continue every week at their special pre parties at Sol House rooftop terrace!
6.THE POSITIVE ETHOS
ABODE takes the atmosphere of their parties very seriously. This was proven no end as they reduced their capacity at Studio 338 from 3000 to 2000 just to create a better vibe for those in attendance. Cutting down the size meant money was lost but they know the crowd are most important thing to worry about. Sankeys then seems like it will be a match made in heaven for this famous London party.
