The Seven Wonders of Sankeys Ibiza – weekly residencies announced!
Sankeys Ibiza will be the sole focus of owner David Vincent and his crew as Sankeys Manchester closes and Vincent turns all his energies to Sankeys Ibiza’s massive season ahead on the White Isle, announcing seven cutting-edge residencies for Ibiza season 2013.
“I have decided to close Sankeys in Manchester indefinitely this summer as I focus my attention on our third year in Ibiza. I want our Ibiza project to be the best club in the world, just like what we have achieved previously in Manchester, as I get the feeling this could be our summer. But I need my production and staff from Manchester to come to Ibiza with me to achieve this goal and therefore both clubs cannot be open at the same time (there are only a handful of parties left to see Sankeys Manchester in its full glory and the closing party sold out in record time!).
“We are bringing the best of the best over to Ibiza this season throughout every level of production…just wait till you see what we have planned. You won’t be disappointed.”

Expect a season of unpretentious, fun-fuelled house and techno as label mainstays share the booth with special guests, in the form of past, present and future dirtybird affiliates.
