Sunday Nights at Hï Ibiza: Glitterbox Opened The Season
Glitterbox reveals season lineup for 2023 with its summer residency at Hï Ibiza
At the beginning of this month, Glitterbox made its return to Ibiza super-club Hï Ibiza for its sixth season, securing its spot as one of the club’s longest-running and best-loved residencies. The line-up reveal demonstrates Glitterbox’s unrivalled pull for talent to the island and brings along the night’s iconic performers to dominate Sunday nights for a mighty 22 weeks.
Cementing its status as the island’s most inclusive dancefloor, Glitterbox’s return welcomes a whole host of fresh faces for 2023 including debuts from the legendary DJ Jazzy Jeff, Benji B, Colleen Cosmo Murphy, SG Lewis, and the infectiously energetic duo Illustrious Blacks.
Powering Hï Ibiza’s dancefloors since Sunday 7th May, returning headliners will include GRAMMY-award winners Honey Dijon and Purple Disco Machine, Detroit duo Floorplan, Ash Lauryn, Moodymann, Natasha Diggs, Dan Shake, Jamie 3:26, Masters at Work, Glitterbox Radio host Melvo Baptiste and many more.
Having had the privilege of being present at the opening party of Glitterbox, we immersed ourselves in the electrifying experience…
Once we arrived we first got a tour of the amazingly large club. I expected a lot of Ibiza and its clubs, but this amazed me. There is a lot to discover and almost behind every door, you can find something new. We were surprised by Dj sets in the Wild Corner where the Dj Booth is in the middle of the toilets (and we, of course, loved it). You also have the Theatre Floor and the Club. Let me tell you – you can really lose yourself in the eclectic, and lovingly designed space.
This Sunday Glitterbox’s weekly residency on Sundays started and will continue to bring vibrant energy music along with some of the biggest DJs that have made a staple on the island. We loved the atmosphere, Glitterbox is a true embodiment of joy and an ode to self-expression. With more queer guests and artists it opens the room for a more inclusive crowd. I spotted some fantastic dancers in the midst of the dance floor. Another highlight was the set by Detroit legend Carl Craig. He treated us with some good techno infused with more soul and jazzy tunes and took us on a journey with a great selection of 90s tunes and funky vibes. What a night! Until next time Glitterbox and Hï Ibiza!
Bringing with it a brand-new bold aesthetic for 2023, the label has commissioned renowned artist Haris Nukem to deliver a series of stunning visuals that showcase the label’s iconic performers front and centre. A true embodiment of Glitterbox with its vibrancy and ode to self-expression, this year’s visuals showcase Nukem’s unique hand-painted design, set to come to life on Hï Ibiza’s dancefloor. Introducing a fresh take on the ever-present Glitterbox slogans, this season will introduce ‘The Love is Real’, ‘Dance Forever’ and ‘Feel The Music’, to convey the party’s unmistakable values and uplifting spirit.
We’re super happy to welcome back Glitterbox to their summer home at Hï Ibiza! Sundays at Hï Ibiza are always one of the most colourful, flamboyant and fun parties on the island, so we can’t wait for the Glittterbox team and their incredible DJs and dancers to bring another summer-long celebration of disco and house music to the World’s #1 Club
– Yann Pissenem, Founder and CEO of Hï Ibiza.
Providing the ultimate backdrop to the party’s world-class offering, the multi award-winning Hï Ibiza will once again host party-goers celebrating the joys of music and escapism on the dancefloor. Glitterbox has had a home at Hï Ibiza since the club’s inaugural year in 2017. Ever since, with the club earning the #1 DJ Mag Top 100 Clubs spot in 2022, the pairing has been celebrated for its impressive musical curation and spectacular production, with crowds returning year on year to immerse themselves in the theatrical party atmosphere, soundtracked by the label’s authoritative mix of party-starting nu disco, vocal house and classic anthems.
Uniting generations of music-lovers and disco devotees, Sundays at Hï Ibiza will continue to be the must-experience party for clubbers on the island, with its unbeatable energy and exuberance set to create more unforgettable moments this summer.
