“The White Isle has been our summer sanctuary for two decades and we have missed our spiritual home.” – Simon Dunmore
Kicking the weekend off, on Friday 29th, with the Defected Ibiza opening at Eden in San Antonio, launching a long hot summer of house music at the newly renovated venue will be Darius Syrossian, Simon Dunmore, Riva Starr, Low Steppa, Hannah Wants, plus more artists to be announced.
The all-day affair at Dalt Vila follows on the Saturday, where Defected will deliver a star-studded line-up of A-List talent, as Honey Dijon, Bob Sinclar, Dennis Ferrer, Danny Tenaglia, Louie Vega and Simon Dunmore join forces for an epic afternoon of house. With the iconic Ibiza Town backdrop adding an extra dose of magic to the event, the Defected and IMS Dalt Vila takeover will be one of the very few parties to take place at the historic location, making it one of the season’s most unmissable events. With Classic Music Company on after-party duties, Luke Solomon’s imprint will take over Playa D’En Bossa’s hottest underground venue Octan with Derrick Carter, Dan Shake, Natasha Diggs, Sophie Lloyd, Melvo Baptiste, Melon Bomb plus more TBA.
To see out the weekend, Defected will then head to iconic Ibiza super club Amnesia for the final night of the takeover. With a line-up suitable for Amnesia’s world-class, cavernous soundsystem featuring Melé, the Dunmore Brothers, Ferreck Dawn, the Mambo Brothers and more A-List names to be announced.
This weekend on the White Isle will set the tone for what will be Defected’s biggest summer ever.
