May the first be with you! Sankeys Awakens opens its Ibiza season with a killer line up

Sankeys Ibiza have announced Warriors head honcho Steve Lawler and a live performance from KiNK as part of an innovative line up for their summer opening party, Sankeys Awakens, on Sunday 1st May 2016, the first major club opening of the season. They are joined by ANTS man of the moment Kolsch, Lee Walker, Miguel Campbell and the soon to be announced final winning members of Team Sankeys. This collective of kick ass female DJs have been brought together through David Vincent’s recent ‘Break the Glass Ceiling’ female DJ project and are all residents at the club’s highly successful new Winter party, Sankeys Sabados.

“I can’t wait to open up the whole venue for Summer 2016, earlier than we ever have before too. We’ve had a very strong Winter, becoming much more integrated into the culture of the island and I’m sure we’ll reap the benefits of this over the summer.” – David Vincent

Sankeys is one of the most forward thinking nightclubs in the world and David feels that the line-up for Sankeys Awakens demonstrates that. “Our line-up for the opening party is very much a representation of the sound of Sankeys”, he explained. “and always the first name on any Sankeys bill is Steve Lawler, the King of the Basement. Then we’ve got KiNK, who was recently voted number 1 live act in the world on the Resident Advisor 2015 poll. I’m really happy to see him blow up, we’ve been booking him from the beginning”.

“As for the others, well we just had to have Kolsch back for this year’s opening after he destroyed it at the closing of Tribal Sessions last season. If you add to this Lee Walker, whose ‘Freak Like Me’ record has to be the hottest track on the planet right now, alongside Tribal Sessions resident Miguel Campbell, who just continues to rise and who I have great hopes for, then you have something really strong, fresh and totally Sankeys. It’s our sixth year and I’ve got a sixth sense that this is the beginning of the most historical season of Sankeys, in fact I’m 100% sure it will be.” – David Vincent

Sankeys Ibiza is currently enjoying great success with it’s new Winter party, Sankeys Sabados, although the 1st May will be the first time The Lab and The Terrace have been opened up this year. A smash hit with the local tastemaking crowd, Sabados has been showcasing 12 of the island’s most exciting female DJs across each Saturday, alongside some of Sankeys most popular residents including Manu Gonzalez and Matt Jam Lamont. This free party runs until 23 April, after that David will announce which of these talented ladies have made it through to the final cast of Team Sankeys to play at the opening. Sankeys Sabados residents are Alice Clark, Amy DB, Cuky, JADA, Kellie Allen, Lisa Chadderton, Marta DLM, Miss Luna, Maxine Hardcastle, Stephanie Rosse, Tania Moon. Sankeys Awakens will be open for a 12 hour marathon, from 6.30pm through until 6.30am and will include an early evening free BBQ on the terrace.
