Classic Ibiza 2019
Classic Ibiza is bringing its heady blend of Balearic beats back to the Blickling Estate on Friday 9th August 2019, following the resounding success of the last summer’s concert. Last year’s concert was a massive hit with the Norfolk audience, so sign up now if you don’t want to miss The Urban Soul Orchestra, DJ Goldierocks and a host of live vocalists perform some of dance music’s most iconic tracks.
Lisa Ward, Director of Revival Productions, organisers of Classic Ibiza, comments:
“We’ve been overwhelmed by enquiries about the 2019 concert following the resounding success of another sell-out event at Blickling last summer. It was fantastic to see so many family groups in the audience. We have got some really exciting plans, which will take Classic Ibiza to another level, so watch this space!”
Classic Ibiza starts with a chill-out set where people can enjoy their picnics and a drink, or dance along as the sun fades. Then DJ Goldierocks will turn things up in the interval, getting the crowd into the mood before the Urban Soul Orchestra and vocalists return to the stage to bring a party atmosphere to the summer evening. One iconic dance track will follow another, as the delightful grounds at Blickling turn into a vibrant, alfresco celebration, with accompanying lasers.
Classic Ibiza’s Facebook followers will once again be given the opportunity to vote for their favourite tracks to be added to the set-list next year. This year’s poll saw over 10,000 votes being casted, and the winning tracks were: Out of Space (The Prodigy), Hey Boy, Hey Girl (The Chemical Brothers), Free (Ultra Naté), Touch Me (Rui Da Silva, ft. Cassandra) and Rhythm Of The Night (Corona).
Stephen Hussey, conductor and founder of The Urban Soul Orchestra, comments:
“Going by the reaction of the Blickling crowd in the summer, we clearly hit the spot with the set-list, but I’m already busy delving into dance music’s rich archive of classic tracks to add some truly stonking tunes to next year’s programme. We’ve got a few other surprises up our sleeve too, which I can’t wait to share. See you next summer, Blickling!”
In addition to the amazing artists, what really sets Classic Ibiza apart is that it is a concert for all the family. Set in the delightful lake-side setting of Blickling Hall, concert-goers can bring their own food and drink or take advantage of numerous stalls selling high-quality street-food and refreshments. Car-parking is free (both for coaches and cars), so whether you are six or 60, you are assured of having a fantastic evening in a safe and family-friendly environment.
