Ministry Of Sound to partner Classic Ibiza at Blickling
Revival Productions, organisers of Classic Ibiza, are delighted to announce their partnership with Ministry of Sound for next year’s event at Blickling Park.
Classic Ibiza sees the Urban Soul Orchestra (USO) and a live DJ perform a playlist of iconic dance music anthems from the “White Island”. USO have played and recorded with some of the biggest names in the industry including Nightmares On Wax, Groove Armada, Ultra Naté, Octave One, Full Intention, Soul II Soul, Robert Miles, Sonique and Spiller.
On Friday 10th August Classic Ibiza will ensure that one of Norfolk’s best-known beauty spots will rival the White Island for party anthems when a live DJ and the Urban Soul Orchestra will bring some of the most iconic dance tracks from the last 20 years to life.
The music will start with a chilled set; this year’s included Les Nuits (Nightmares On Wax), Teardrop (Massive Attack), At The River (Groove Armada), Here With Me (Dido), So Good To Me (Chris Malinchak) and Waves (Mr Probz).
In the second half, the concert will move into full party mode with dance-floor classics, old and new, like Right Here, Right Now (Fat Boy Slim), Insomnia (Faithless), Sing It Back (Moloko) Music Sounds Better With You (Stardust), One More Time (Daft Punk) and Sandstorm (Daruda).
Lisa Ward of Revival Productions said:
“There is no stronger illustration of what we have created with Classic Ibiza, than the endorsement of Ministry of Sound. They continue to be the heartbeat for dance music lovers across the globe, spanning generations and genres. Last year, they came on board with a couple of our other Classic Ibiza dates and it’s fantastic to now have their partnership across all venues.
Considering the amount of repeat bookings that we have received, our approach appears to be working; two of our venues for 2018 have almost sold out already! So, if you are thinking of coming to Blickling and want to bring your family and friends along too, it’s advisable to book your tickets now.”
Andrew Akuffo, Ministry of Sound’s Director of Events & Brand, said:
“We’re really excited about partnering with Classic Ibiza on these shows. These are the songs that helped create incredible moments at our events over the last 25 years. Now, in these amazing settings and with a full orchestra, our audiences, both experienced and contemporary, can enjoy the tracks in a completely new way.”
Stephen Hussey, founder and conductor of USO commented:
“The Classic Ibiza formula works so well because it’s something new and different that appeals to so many people. Having Ministry of Sound’s on board turns the dial up to 11!”
Since announcing the 2018 date in late September, all early bird tickets and gazebos have gone and the concert is expected to sell-out in advance so don’t miss out!
