Sankeys Awakens: opening party details revealed

A line-up to blow Sankeys basement apart for the first major club opening of the season.

These are the kind of announcements we really like to dish out to wait and watch for the reaction. Here we are with news of the killer line-up that Sankeys will awaken with to kick off their sixth summer on the island on Sunday 1st May.

The first artist name we're going to roll out is VIVa Warriors top dog Steve Lawler and the second is none other than Resident Advisor's number 1 live performance artist - KiNK - who'll be flexing his award winning skill with a live set. They are joined by Ushuaïa's Ants man of the moment Kölsch, creator of Freak Like Me (one of the hottest tracks of the moment) Lee Walker, Tribal Sessions resident Miguel Campbell and the soon to be announced final winning members of Team Sankeys. This collective of some of the finest female DJs of the moment have been unified as part of David Vincent's ‘Break the Glass Ceiling' female DJ project and are all residents at the club's much welcomed new winter party, Sankeys Sabados.

Matching you guys for excitement levels is the Club owner himself, David Vincent, and he had this to say: “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. 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.”

Sankeys is favoured as one of the most forward thinking nightclubs in the world and if we take a look at the line-up we've just dealt, it's pretty clear that this is undisputable.

Forget rolling up to the club past 2am because this is going for a 12 hour marathon session, from 6.30pm through until 6.30am, so you'd better be rolling on a good steam of adrenaline and stamina, although the latter will be taken care of by Sankeys with an early evening free BBQ on the terrace.

From now and until the end of February, early bird tickets can be yours for just €25, and thereafter you can make the grab for €39.

May the first be with you!
