Glitterbox 2017 at HÏ IBIZA
Fridays from 9 June 2017

DEFECTED present their Glitterbox IBIZA 2017 in the new club HÏ for 17 weekly parties on Fridays from 9th of June until September TBA 2017, (except 4 August).

Glitterbox is one of the world’s most flamboyant, hedonistic parties, where the world’s foremost DJs, true masters at work renowned for their musical selection and turntable technique, lay down a soundtrack spanning 40 years of joyful, uplifting dance music. In a throwback to the glory days of Disco and House, the club experience is enhanced by dancers and performers, but the crowd are the true stars of the show – open-minded, passionate, and encompassing all ages, colours, genders and sexual orientations.

For its fourth season on the island
Glitterbox will take over Fridays at brand new club, Hï Ibiza, every week from 9 June. Glitterbox will be breaking in the club with mind-blowing state-of- the-art production, bigger line-ups and their now infamous dance crews out in force. These weekly extravaganzas will feature a well-crafted blend of contemporary, obscure and sought after Disco and House collectables, alongside anthems and classics.

In 2016,
Glitterbox reached a new high; Fridays at Space Ibiza were acknowledged to be up there as the very best nights on the island. Unforgettable moments were made; there were impromptu dance-offs on the floor, Barbara Tucker jammed with Louie Vega, and standout performances came from Basement Jaxx, Todd Terry, Dimitri From Paris, Horse Meat Disco and many more. This summer, with an entire venue to play with, Glitterbox in Ibiza promises to be bigger and better than ever before.

“Every Friday you can expect an event with an extrovert personality – an extravaganza! A party that screams “good times”. It’s where people come together to celebrate incredible dance music from across the decades, provided by DJs that know how to rock the discotheque.

It’s flamboyant, spiritual and hedonistic. The ultimate dancefloor escape.”

We chose Hï for
Glitterbox’s Ibiza residency because it is an incredible proposition. It’s the new hot spot on the island. The people involved totally believe in the Glitterbox concept, which is still unique to the island. It’s a challenge, but an opportunity that had to be taken.” Simon Dunmore

Glitterbox Ibiza… A Disco Hï.

  about GLITTERBOX


ABOUT Glitterbox

In 2014, Glitterbox arrived to the island of Ibiza presenting a different kind of party combining a ‘music first’ policy with a sense of glamour, weekly DJ sets of classic and contemporary house, disco and electronic music.
Some of the musical highlights were played by Hercules & Love Affair, and the DJ sets from Kenny Dope, Horse Meat Disco, Todd Terry, Dimitri From Paris and Joey Negro were legendary.

Glitterbox 2015

As shown by the partnership with SPACE IBIZA (the island’s most iconic club with an unparalleled musical history), creative collaboration - and fun – is at Glitterbox’s heart. Overseen by Glitterbox Creative Director, Mark Herman, this year brings new creative elements to the event including the artist, TradeMark, who designed the season’s artwork, whilst masterminding the performance side, club collective “Savage” will consist of three different dance crews (Sink The Pink, Hot Heels & Nutbags) who will all bring their own unique energy to the night.

TradeMark, aka UK artist, Mark Wardel, is the renowned painter whose figurative work explores the interface between art, commerce, and desire. After finishing art school, he became known as the “court painter” of the Blitz and other London café society hang outs, producing portraits of Boy George, Steve Strange, and Japan’s David Sylvian. Wardel’s artworks are in the collections of Kanye West and Naomi Campbell, and his work has been featured in GQ Style, Dazed and Confused, iD, and beyond. In 2013, he produced a sell-out edition of 300 Bowie-silver Duke life mask sculptures for the V&A museum, as part of the David Bowie Is exhibition, of which Bowie himself purchased two.

Savage” is produced by East Creative Agency, the team behind some of London’s most outrageous club nights and events – including Sink The Pink and XOYO’s Gloria’s.
Their East London performers, choreographers, and costume designers assigned to
Glitterbox, will be bringing the finest dancers, drag queens and club kids together to celebrate fashion, decadence, self-expression and hedonism - all to the best soundtrack on the island.
Jono Kitchens of Hot Heels will choreograph performances, with costumes designed by Jay Barry Matthews.

Glitterbox embodies the values that are synonymous with Space and its hallowed Terrace – not least the fact that the dancefloor and those who share it should be the focus of a truly transformative night: something of a rarity in the DJ-idolising culture of the modern club. And as an environment to hear the world’s greatest DJs – the true masters of their craft. Fittingly, this year’s Closing Party presents an impeccable line-up, the Terrace plays host to Todd Terry, Dimitri From Paris, Joey Negro, and Purple Disco Machine, while John Morales and DJ Pippi take the Sunset Terrace, and El Salon is helmed by Melon Bomb. Summer 2016 will be remembered as the season that saw Glitterbox come of age in Ibiza and the UK. This year’s parties at Space, Ibiza have drawn tens of thousands of clubbers across 17 weeks, in addition to sold out events at Ministry of Sound, and stages at We R FSTVL and Defected Croatia

  GLITTERBOX IBIZA 2015



This week, Hercules & Love Affair return to play live at Glitterbox at Space, Ibiza. The band’s two riotous live performances helped define Glitterbox’s first season last year. Hercules & Love Affair’s third album, Feast of The Broken Heart, released in 2014, captured the band at a new zenith, and showed that meaningful house music can speak to the most musically adept of tastes – a mindset that’s very much evident at Glitterbox. Defected Records subsequently signed the acid pop-house masterpiece ‘Do You Feel The Same’. Releasing the album track as a full-length DJ-friendly club mix, and with new mixes, it became the undisputed anthem of Glitterbox’s first season (2014)






Today Fatboy Slim headlines Glitterbox for the first time with a very special house and disco set, supported by Tensnake and The Shapeshifters amongst others. We’re officially halfway through Glitterbox’s 2015 season at Space Ibiza, and the scale of line-ups for the rest of August are equally as impressive. Basement Jaxx, Dimitri From Paris, Hercules & Love Affair (Live) and Late Nite Tuff Guy are just a few of the names set to appear - all making the party that recaptures the true spirit of the White Isle white hot.

 






The finale is preceded by two formidable line-ups, with 11th September featuring The 2 Bears, Lovebirds, Opolopo, Simon Dunmore and Andy Baxter; and 18th September, with Soul Clap’s Glitterbox debut, alongside Breakbot, Joey Negro, Juan MacLean, and DJ Ants.
Since its debut last summer, Glitterbox has caught the attention of island locals, in the know clubbers, and Ibizan and international media. This season’s move to Space Ibiza offered a bigger home for those looking for a night built around the best classic and contemporary house and disco. Season highlights have included Fatboy Slim and Basement Jaxx’s sets in August, Hercules & Love Affair’s live shows, Louie Vega jamming with Barbara Tucker, Juan MacLean’s ‘A Simple Design’ becoming the Glitterbox anthem, and the visual highlights provided by the Sink The Pink crews.
