Nightmares on Wax headlines Spotlight El Salon takeover

Discoteca who? It's an Ibiza Spotlight house party in the smallest-but-sweetest room at Space.

Kicking off September silly season in Ibiza, Spotlight is throwing a party in our favourite room in Space: itty bitty El Salon/Space's living room/the house party corner of the epic Playa d'en Bossa superclub.

Manning the booth on Tuesday the 1st of September will be longstanding Warp label hero, bringer of groove and grins, Nightmares on Wax, aka DJ Ease. Due to a hectic summer touring schedule, Ease reduced his much-loved Wax Da Jam Las Dalias parties to only three special dates this summer, all of which have passed, so we're stoked to bring him back for our wee shindig. Ease is also an ambassador for the Last Night A DJ Saved My Life foundation, so he and Spotlight will be giving a joint donation to the charity in place of a DJ fee.

Joining Ease will be Negghead (one half of Acid Mondays) and Alex Wolfenden (the other half), much loved island residents in their own right, and fresh from playing Circo Loco as Acid Mondays the night before. Elsewhere in Space that evening you'll be able to catch Adam Beyer, Carl Craig, Yousef, Reboot and John Digweed. All class acts, but if you're looking for something a little funkier, we'll be waiting with the hierbas in El Salon.

Things that happened at last year's Spotlight El Salon takeovers…

- Marriage proposal (for serious!)
- Roving trays of free hierbas
- Rampant glitter abuse
- Birthday cake x 2 (eaten, not thrown)
- Love Is In The Air sing-a-longs (big up Paul Reynolds)
- Live hip hop MC right amongst the crowd (Harley Maxwell in action)
- Limbo
- Disco dance-offs
- Laser sax

As always in Ibiza, you should never take having a good time too seriously and we don't intend to. Come down and have a laugh with the Spotlight team to some great music. We can't wait to party with the extended Spotlight fambly (which we've decided includes anyone who has ever used our calendar - so everyone) and hope to see lots of familiar faces.

The party kicks off at midnight; set yourself on a rotating trajectory between El Salon dance floor and the bar and you can't miss us.
