Global house music institution Defected has announced a brand new Ibiza festival, marking 20 years of the label’s events on the island. The four-day Defected Ibiza Festival will run from Thursday 14th into the early hours of Monday 18th May 2020, with day and night parties at various Ibiza locations, featuring the biggest DJs from the Defected, Glitterbox and Classic Music Company rosters.
The new festival is a natural next step for Defected after establishing sell-out festivals in Croatia and London. Its biggest Ibiza offering to date, Defected Ibiza Festival builds on the undeniable reputation the brand has earned on the island since 2000, when the fledgling label partnered with Ministry of Sound at Pacha. Two decades later, the residency at Eden and sister-label Glitterbox’s residency at Hï Ibiza are the party mecca’s hottest success stories.
Providing an Ibiza openings weekend solution with festival pass and accommodation packages to suit all budgets, Defected Ibiza Festival will kick off on Thursday 14th with a day party, followed by a pre-party and Defected’s opening night at Eden in San Antonio on Friday. Saturday 16th will welcome the festival’s second daytime event followed by Classic Music Company hosting the night, closing the weekend in style with a pre-party, then on to Glitterbox Ibiza’s opening party at Hï Ibiza. All line-ups and further venue information will be released in early 2020.
Defected launched a sign-up page to register for pre-sale tickets, which will was made available on Thursday 5th December, along with a money-can’t-buy competition. One lucky person will win flights to Ibiza for two people, 2x Defected Ibiza Festival passes, €1,000 spending money, accommodation for four nights, a sunset dinner with the Defected team and 2x merch bundles.
Combined festival pass and accommodation packages will be available from defected.com/Ibiza, with prices starting at £350.
