Classic Ibiza’s Lisa Ward, comments: “We love asking our amazing audience to help select the tracks for Classic Ibiza and yet again we have been inundated with thousands of votes, with Saltwater by Chicane being the clear winner. I can’t wait to see the crowd’s reaction to these tracks when they are performed live this summer at Bowood House by the awesome Urban Soul Orchestra.”
Classic Ibiza features a heady blend of Balearic-infused house music, performed by the 32-piece Urban Soul Orchestra (USO), headline DJs and globally renowned vocalists. In 2019, Classic Ibiza performed to 70,000 people in the UK and Spain. This summer’s show promises to be better than ever with an extra hour-long chill-out DJ set, new tracks, enhanced light-show and most importantly… even more toilets!
Lisa Ward adds: “We freshen-up the set every year, as we know that Classic Ibiza has become part of people’s social calendar. In addition to the five track-poll winners, we’ve added 12 new orchestrations to the programme of over 30 house classics. We’re also really excited to welcome former Pacha and Ministry of Sound resident Jose Luis, who will be performing our new chill-out DJ set and is joining USO and Goldierocks at the show.”
The concert organisers are working with a health & safety specialist event company, that helps large concerts take place safely in the current environment. As audience numbers have been capped, to enable social distancing, Classic Ibiza at Bowood House has sold-out on Saturday 24th July, with limited tickets available for Friday 23rd. The situation will be reviewed in late Spring, when there is a possibility, if the situation continues to improve, that more tickets will be released.
