Classic Ibiza has performed to over 150,000 people since the inaugural event at Blickling Estate in 2016!
It all started at Blickling in 2016, when Classic Ibiza ensured that one of Norfolk’s best-known beauty spots rivalled the White Island for party anthems. DJ Goldierocks started the evening with a chill-out set and as the sun went down, the Urban Soul Orchestra and its talented vocalists ramped things up as the evening exploded into festive-club mode with accompanying lasers and the crowd sang along and bounced in appreciation; Classic Ibiza was declared a smash hit! Since then, the show has played to more than 150,000, from the Ocean Club Marbella to Windsor racecourse and the stately homes of Burghley and Bowood; it’s become the biggest travelling, classical dance party of its kind and is now etched as a firm favourite with sell-out audiences up and down the country. It’s back at Blickling Estate on Saturday 6th August.
The Classic Ibiza outdoor concert was the brainchild of Lisa Ward from Revival Productions and along with fellow director Katharine Brindley, both have been blown away by its popularity. “When we first performed Classic Ibiza at Blickling in 2016 we knew it was very special, but we had no idea the show would become so popular; Classic Ibiza has progressed from one show in 2016, to being rolled out at 15 venues in 2022, it’s going to be a busy summer!
” Working with the internationally renowned Urban Soul Orchestra and DJ Goldierocks has been amazing and the show has flourished since the inaugural event at Blickling. Our challenge is to make it better every year, coming up with fresh ideas that have the ‘wow-factor; we listen to our audiences, asking them to select their favourite tracks and the lazer shows have become increasingly sophisticated. Last year’s introduction of a 2nd DJ in Jose Luis, former Pacha and Ministry of Sound resident, has also been a phenomenal success and the format of the event works really well, we can’t wait to get the 2022 party started!”
With less than 12 weeks to go until Classic Ibiza returns to Norfolk on Saturday 6th August, the Urban Soul Orchestra (USO) has been perfecting this year’s performance in a London studio; bringing a rich house music pedigree to Classic Ibiza, Stephen Hussey, conductor, arranger and musical producer says:
“I’ve got goosebumps just thinking about the awesome tracks we’ve got up our sleeve for this summer. We’re heading into the stratosphere! The Urban Soul Orchestra is on top form and we can’t wait to feel the energy of the incredible Blickling audience – performing there is like coming home.”
Tickets for the Blickling show are once again due to sell-out. Car-parking is free, and you can bring your own food and drink. All you need to do is remember your dancing shoes and embrace the family-friendly vibe.
The organisers are very grateful for the generosity of the crowds at all venues who have helped to raise thousands of pounds for charity over the years and this year, Blickling is once again, proud to be supporting East Anglia’s Children’s Hospices. There will be various fundraising initiatives taking place on the evening, including a £2.50 donation from every programme sold.
