Less than one hundred days until the doors swing open, it feels an appropriate time to discuss the inaugural Defected Ibiza Festival. This week, a vast spread of artists have been announced from Defected’s roster and further afield.
Names from the top rung of talent include famed duo Basement Jaxx, Masters At Work’s Louie Vega, SNATCH! Records boss Riva Starr and party regulars last year, Gorgon City.
Some of the more intriguing bookings see Lovebirds, Dirty Channels, island veteran DJ Pippi and Chicago house legend Mike Dunn all participate.
The line-up also includes Glitterbox favourites Dimitri From Paris, Horse Meat Disco, Luke Solomon and Melvo Baptiste.
Defected mainstays including boss Simon Dunmore, leading lady Sam Divine and the prolific Purple Disco Machine are naturally involved. We wouldn’t have it any other way.
Other confirmed acts are formed of Mambo Brothers, The Shapeshifters, David Penn and Joys-creator Roberto Surace.
From house to disco and everything that falls between those two points, Defected Ibiza Festival’s line-up is the true embodiment of feel good dance music.
The early season festival will take place at multiple island venues between 14 and 18 May. The Defected opening party at Eden is set to be grand curtain-raiser. €20 early-bird tickets are on sale now. Head here to select from all dates, including the 15 May.
