Unusual Suspects - Sankeys

At Sankeys. Heavy house and trailblazing techno from the Unusual Suspects gang.


Back in winter 2015, the island turned to temporary hibernation but was shaken back awake by Unusual Suspects, which embarked on its first residency on Ibiza. Such was the success of these parties that it earned its first summer residency in 2016. In 2017, it was back once again with only the finest house and techno by the truckload. Now the party is back once again for its fourth season at Sankeys this 2018.

From the opening, the roster announced quite the season. On Thursday 17 May for the first fiesta of the season, techno master Ilario Alicante, Federico Grazzini, Berlin's finest Janina, Frank Storm and Rick Maia will be smashing the Lab room's brand new KV2 sound system Lab room. On the Terrace, we have David Moreno and Fabrizio Marra going back to back, as well as Fell Reis, Stephanie Rosse and Ronald Takeshi. The Backstage room will belong to Smythy & Dave playing all night long.

As for the line-ups of the rest of the season, you'll be in good hands. Sankeys sees a slew of returning guests, including Spanish selector Rick Maia, Berlin veteran Janina, German house heavyweight Thomas Melchior and many more.

Island favourite tINI also makes a reappearance as well after her Unusual Suspects debut in December 2016 and 2017 appearances.

As with previous years, there will be a strong Romanian influence, with Praslea and Raresh tempering the beat individually and under their moniker Praslesh. Back at Unusual Suspects after their debut in the Basement last year, we have sonic voyager Voigtmann and Toulouse-born tastemaker Lamache, among more.

Also on the solid roster of revered international artists dropping in for their bit of Unusual Suspects, we have Apollonia, ANNA, Cuartero, DJ Sneak, Eats Everything, East End Dubs, Enzo Siragusa, Frank Storm, Hector Couto and many more.

As for the closing party, it will be in great hands with Cassy, Santé, Sidney Charles, Frank Storm, Federico Grazzini, Janina, Rick Maia and Gonçalo, amongst others, on the decks.

This year the season kicks off on 17 May 2018, also making the opening of Sankeys for this season and runs every Thursday for 20 weeks until 27 September.
