Glitterbox began their 2016 season at Space, Ibiza in spectacular style on Friday 3 June. The first of 17 parties to grace the legendary venue’s Terrace during its final year saw DJ sets from Dimitri From Paris, Kenny Dope, Todd Terry, Simon Dunmore, and DJ Pippi, with a live performance from the first lady of house, Barbara Tucker.

 

With queues outside and a packed Terrace from opening until close, the 2016 launch of Glitterbox in Ibiza welcomed back its on-island family and thousands of clubbers. Pictures from the night tell their own story http://defected.com/news/glitterbox-2016-opening-party-reaction/, while the island’s press have been united in their praise about the party’s return to its spiritual home.

The stage is now set for the second party of the season this Friday, with UK dance music royalty, Basement Jaxx, making their first Glitterbox Ibiza appearance of the summer (and following their triumphant show at Ministry of Sound in May). Joining them are The Shapeshifters, and Purple Disco Machine, with Mr Doris in El Salon.

 

On August’s second weekend, Glitterbox will travel to Croatia for the first time, curating a night at the inaugural, 5 day long Defected Croatia Festival in Tisno, Dalmatia. On 23 September, Glitterbox caps its biggest summer to date with the 2016 closing party at Space, Ibiza, featuring Todd Terry, Dimitri From Paris, Joey Negro, and Purple Disco Machine.

 

Glitterbox has just announced a special day and night party at Ministry of Sound on August Bank Holiday. Opening at 4pm on 28th August, the party features Dimitri From Paris, Joey Negro, Simon Dunmore, Severino, Purple Disco Machine, Eli Escobar, Dr Packer, Get Down Edits, and For The Love Of House, plus performances from dance crew, Hot Heels.

BACKGROUND TO GLITTERBOX

 

At its heart, Glitterbox embodies the idea that the dancefloor should be the focus of a truly transformative night: something of a rarity in the DJ-idolising culture of the modern club. Its parties turn club and festival spaces into glittering, hedonistic playgrounds, with extravagant live shows and the world’s finest DJs – the true masters of their craft.

 

In 2015, Glitterbox relocated from Booom to Space and enjoyed a revelatory sophomore year.  The opening party reviews were exemplary.  Glitterbox’s unique fusion of classic and contemporary dance music, backed by imaginative theming across everything from the  glamorous artwork to the Savage dance crews Nutbags, Hot Heels and Sink The Pink has fitted Space perfectly, and the Glitterbox crowds happily swelled whilst the Friday night soundtrack continued to impress.

 

Glitterbox first moved off island last summer at London’s Ministry of Sound, with further events held in December 2015, May 2016, and forthcoming on 28th August.
