Let the unusual activity commence! – by Sarah Andrews
Unusual Suspects smashed it last winter at Bossa’s best underground club Sankeys Ibiza, which saw them sail through the summer months with a much-loved residency. Unusual Suspects will return to Sankeys in 2017 with some of the most tasteful, cutting edge and underground names released so far on the island.
The season will run from 11 May to 28 September, with weekly parties held every Thursday throughout summer. Both The Lab and The Basement will be open. Sound-wise, there is nowhere better in Ibiza thanks to the club’s flagship Pioneer installation which offers booming lows and crisp highs all night long.
Holding down the fort each week throughout the season will be residents Federico Grazzini, Janina and Frank Storm, an Italian born DJ who certainly made a name for himself last summer with his heady techno sounds.
The big acts announced for this summer include the likes of Eats Everything, Kenny Glasgow, Dana Ruh, a live show from Ion Ludwig, Josh Wink, Tobi Neumann and long time underground favourites Cab Drivers.
The Mandar trio plus Romanian stars Barac, Raresh, Praslea and Praslesh are all set to make an appearance as well as dub techno don Steve O’Sullivan, Ibiza regular tINI and Vera.
The Unusual Suspects 2017 opening party takes place 11 May for 21 weeks – line ups for every Thursday at Sankeys this summer are included below with more coming in the next few weeks. For tickets to Unusual Suspects click here and to inquire about VIP tables message us for a quote.
