IDOL - Sankeys 2018

At Sankeys Tuesday, from 3 Jul to 28 Aug. Travel through music and visuals with today's electronic music idols.

Brand new party at Sankeys this summer 2018 season, IDOL will create a futuristic and artistic voyage through music. A powerful line-up and immersive production guarantee an other-worldly experience.

At the helm, we have electronic music wizard Timo Maas. Besides having been a Circoloco resident for 15+ years, the veteran DJ has toured globally bringing his deep trippy house and techno to dance floors around the world. The twice Grammy-nominated DJ is renowned on the island for the bewildering effect he has on the dance floor.

As Timo Maas will also be curating the weekly-line-ups, you can expect some of the most exciting and highly respected international guests, the idols of today.

We have DJs the likes of veteran multi-talented and astounding selector DJ Hell, the sampling maestro and innovator Matthew Herbert, Mute Records founder Daniel Miller, long-term collaborator DJ Martin Buttrich, DJ and producer Roman Flügel, German deep house duo Tiefschwarz, the bewitching sound of Sebastian Mullaert (live) and Florentine wonder Alex Neri, the skyrocketing talent of Qubiko, the multi-faceted Basti Grub, the versatile King Joshua, Italian star Diego Donati and many others.

Also on deck duties, Brian Molko of Placebo, Andrea Perini, DJ Buda, Harder+Faster, Luca Guerrieri, Luca Donzelli, Jean Cedric, Emanuele Corsanico and island-staple Heath Holme.

This new party does not stop on the aural level, though. Massive visual production, with extraordinary artist and dance performances, will capture the imagination of the audience, who will also be able to take part. A giant statue will present the theme of the event. We haven't seen it yet, but apparently, it will be something impressive and ancestral. Nice!

Blending music, production and performance, this unique event will take place every Tuesday at Sankeys. The underground haunt, this year under new management, will be hosting the event from the opening party on 3 July to the closing one on 28 August 2018.
