Formerly known as ‘Tropical Wonderland’ which debuted in Ibiza to great acclaim in 2017, WNDRLND has been given a makeover for 2019 delivering bigger production, crazier entertainment and an assortment of whimsical themes. The world-famous Eden will be transformed weekly with exotic décor and dancers, while illuminated animals and visually impressive designs are set to sink revellers deep into new and imagined worlds of fantasy and fun.
The bold themes for 2019 are ‘Voodoo’ complete with tribal décor, sugar skull performances and cursed skulls. ‘Wilderness’ with creeping vines, flamingos, huge Amazonian flowers and tropical dancers, and the colourful psychedelia of ‘Down The Rabbit Hole’ with hanging clocks and playing cards making the enchanted forest of Eden into an Alice in Wonderland experience.
Across the season at WNDRLND as the theme switches each time, it will welcome several key house DJs to the booth with residents providing crucial support. Production juggernaut Henry Hacking headlines on 15th June showcasing his arsenal of house music weapons that have signed to Tiger Records, Vicious Recordings, Pukka Up Deep, and more. Hacking will be joined by Pukka Up label boss, Mark Robinson and Damon Hess, the latter who returns again to play the closing party on 21st September, while 29th June sees German duo Plastik Funk take over the club. More guest spots are to be announced.
The long running and iconic Judgement launched last night and will host a second party on 10th August with founder Judge Jules at the helm; Judgement Sundays residents, Vicky Devine and Alex Ellenger, and others are set to play the trance and progressive house party.
