Sankeys Opening Parties: Line Ups for Part 1 and 2

More opening parties the better, right? Yup.

Sankeys work on the idea that if you can have one opening party, you can have two. Good point. Why not? More is always better, isn't it? Anyway, the concept worked last year and so they will carry this over to the 2014 opening parties on Wednesday 21st May and Thursday 22nd May - both sporting huge lineups.

Over the last few years since the clubs debut on the island in 2011, Sankeys has steadily built up an almost cult-like following with a solid base of external and in-house parties running in the clubs music focused rooms, catering more for the underground that most other clubs. Production is secondary to the sound with a dark warehouse vibe, but with a spot on soundsystem from the VOID family (quickly establishing themselves as one of the worlds best). This is what makes Sankeys special, this is what helps it stand out in a crowd of giants.

Part one of the opening takes place on Wednedays 21st May, right in the thick of this year's International Music Summit, and has the much loved Sankeys original party 'Tribal Sessions' as the musical might behind the lineup. This party was a classic years ago back at Sankeys Manchester on Friday nights and has been reborn recently. This legendary party will be debuting on the island and the lineup reflects the occasion with Danny Tenaglia, Darius Syrossian, Enzo Siragusa, Greg Vickers, Shlomi Aber, Sidney Charles, Jozef K and Dave Roasario all featuring. That's legends from all musical backgrounds right there.

Part two of the opening will be the next day, on Thursday 22nd May and for this they will welcome back long-time Ibiza legend and Sankeys favourite Steve Lawler, leader of the Viva Warriors. In previous years, Viva Warriors has taken the coveted Sunday night slot and we hope they will do the same this year (announcement coming soon). Joining Lawler will be Hot Since 82 (so hot right now), Amine Edge & DANCE, Finnebassen, Andrea Oliva, Miss Soulfly and The Element. This covers some breakthrough artists of 2013 with some long serving dance music legends and you can't ask for more than that.

Tickets for the parties are priced at 30€ for one night, or 50€ for the combination of both nights. This is the early bird price, with tickets set to go up in price on the 1st March.

Doors for the first opening party are from 6pm until 6am, with part 2 to from 10pm until 6am.
