W.A.R and Sankeys present Shelter

UK house and techno from two of Ibiza's freshest institutions.

2012 was the year Ibiza Rocks launched their new DJ led, electronic music focused off-shoot - We Are Rockstars, or W.A.R. The idea was to account for the major side of the island for whom the DJ was the rockstar, not the long haired, skinny jean wearing frontman of a band.

The Friday night party has been increasingly successful over the three seasons it's had on the island showcasing some major talent such as Rudimental, Chase & Status, Example and Fatboy Slim. Of course, the party is taking place again for the 2015 season, with dates confirmed for the opening on Friday 5th June and closing on Friday 18th September.

Their plan now is to join forces with the team at Sankeys in Playa d'en Bossa to offer a new session with resident DJ Doorly heading up the party, titled 'Shelter', and with a strong focus on the underground and as a platform to support some special labels and one-off showcases.

For the weeks where We Are Rockstars takes place the party will serve as a carry-on afterhours for those hardcore enough to want more, but Shelter exists as a party in its own right, opening on Friday 22nd May and closing and Friday 25th September - that's one extra week each side of the W.A.R. season.

The party will showcase the latest and greatest in cutting edge UK house and techno.

More info on this next week.

"Proudly moving into my 8th season on the Island and as part of the Ibiza Rocks Team, I'm incredibly excited to be launching this brand new series of after-hours sessions that will take W.A.R! revellers to new heights. It's an honour to become a weekly resident at such an institution as Sankeys and to be able to curate a line-up of my favourite underground artists alongside the W.A.R! team and Dave Vincent.” - Doorly
