OVER 5,000 VOTES CAST IN ANNUAL CLASSIC IBIZA TRACK-POLL

With plans now in full swing for Classic Ibiza’s return to Bowood House on Friday 19 and Saturday 20 July, over Easter the show’s 55,000 social media followers had the opportunity to choose five tracks to be performed live by Urban Soul Orchestra as part of the five hour celebration of Balearic-infused house music.

Over 5,000 votes were cast and the most popular tracks, selected from a shortlist of 10, are: Anthem (N-Joi), Dirty Cash (Money Talks) (Adventures of Stevie V, Todd Terry), Gypsy Woman (She’s Homeless) (Crystal Walters), Space Cowboy (Jamiroquai, David Morales) and U Sure Do (Strike).

These tracks will join 11 other new orchestrations in a set of 40 house classics being reinvented by Urban Soul Orchestra on the evening.

Classic Ibiza’s Lisa Ward says: “These are all anthemic house tracks, with iconic vocals that lend themselves perfectly to that special Urban Soul Orchestra treatment. They also provide those spine-tingling, sing-along moments, which is part of what makes the Classic Ibiza experience so special.”

In addition to 16 new tracks this summer, the set being performed by Stephen Hussey’s Urban Soul Orchestra includes some firm Classic Ibiza favourites – some of which haven’t been performed for a number of years.

Lisa Ward adds: “Next year will mark 10 years of Classic Ibiza, so incredibly we’ve accumulated a repertoire of over 130 tracks to choose from. We love freshening things up every year, but there are some tracks, shout out for Insomnia, that have become such firm crowd favourites that we simply could not perform them. There are also other absolute classics that we haven’t played for a while, and some of these will once again be making an appearance. I know our incredible Wiltshire crowd is going to love what we have in store for them.”

The general rule at Classic Ibiza is that the BPM goes up as the sun goes down. The evening starts at 5.30pm with a vibe straight from one of Ibiza’s iconic beachside bars, before building to a magical alfresco nightclub by the time the concert finishes at 11pm. Headlining the event is Urban Soul Orchestra, known for working alongside dance music greats like Groove Armada, Robert Miles and Nightmares On Wax.

 

They’ll be delving into house music’s rich catalogue with DJ Goldierocks, reinventing the most iconic tracks from the last 30 years. Along the way, highlights include a DJ set by Rich Seam, who has collaborated with the likes of Tricky, and an awe-inspiring laser and light show.

Tickets are selling fast for Classic Ibiza at Bowood, with the Saturday night already at 75% capacity. The show is proud to be supporting The JGM Trust.
