Sankeys still remains as being one of the most solid, high quality club brands in the North of England, with their ventures in Ibiza and America now spreading their influence around the world. Repeating what the club have done during the previous few years, Sankeys Manchester will be closing its doors for the summer, so that the hard working team that collectively make this club one of a kind, can do the same at their Ibiza venue in Playa D’en Bossa from June to October.
After a great 6 months at the brands spiritual home in Manchester, which saw the likes of Derrick May, Kerri Chandler, Nina Kraviz, Kyle Hall, Prosumer, Tama Sumo and Levon Vincent play amongst a rally of other guests, it will be the job of Crew Love to close the club until the summer season ends.
Crew Love is a collective of DJs who have endless love for slow, sexy beats, with a total of 9 artists now forming the family that has been touring the world together since last year, showcasing their sultry sound at some of the most iconic night clubs in the world. Friday the 12th of June will see Crew Love bring a trio of their artists to Sankeys’ basement to see in the summer in style, with Soul Clap set to headline.
Hailing from the US, Soul Clap has gained a huge reputation for picking superb disco originals and edits, many of which are regularly done by the boys themselves. Wolf + Lamb will also be joining the line up, another duo who have remixed the likes of Crazy P, Nick Monaco, DJ Hell and H-Foundation. Last but not least is Life On Planets, whose live performances have been praised by all their peers, first debuting their show at the Wolf + Lamb Marcy Hotel. This is a perfect blend of sun-kissed, summertime vibes to hand over the Sankeys programme to the white isle.
From June to October, Sankeys Ibiza will be playing host to daily residents, with a selection of favourite Sankeys brands returning for another season alongside exciting new events keen to impress what is widely considered the most exciting new club on the island. Aside from the rehoming of the iconic We Love brand, which has been one of the biggest Ibiza stories of the year, in house nights Shelter and The Redlight will be joined by returning residents VIVa Warriors, Tribal Sessions, CUFF and Magna Carta.
