For our third season at Hï we have continued to push the boundaries musically, with a number of artists making their Glitterbox Ibiza debuts this summer. Soundtracking Sunday nights on the island with the usual authoritative mix of party-starting disco, vocal house and classic anthems are of course the legendary headliners who have shaped the Glitterbox family, as well as the rising stars and underground heroes ready to flex their musical muscles behind the decks at Hï for the first time.
Tickets for all Glitterbox @ Hï Ibiza dates available here.
Get to know who will be making their debuts this summer below:
Founding member of Sister Sledge Kathy needs little introduction, having provided the vocals for some of the biggest disco anthems ever made. Appearing for a couple of very special performances this summer at Hï, expect live renditions of the band’s classics such as ‘Lost In Music’ and ‘We Are Family’. Also keep your eyes peeled for an extra special project coming from Kathy and Glitterbox regulars Horse Meat Disco later this summer… Kathy Sledge performs at Glitterbox Ibiza on 14 July, tickets available here.
An artist whose DJ sets and productions are touched with true musicality, Yuksek makes his Glitterbox debut at Hï this summer at the end of August. Whether its managing his label Partyfine, composing scores for French cinema or releasing huge records like ‘I Don’t Have A Drum Machine’ on Classic or his remix of Glitterbox anthem ‘The Spirit’ by Mighty Mouse there is an elegance and flare to Yuksek’s style that makes him an exciting addition to this years’ line-up. Yuksek plays Glitterbox Ibiza on the 25 August, tickets here.
Smokin Jo first made an appearance on the island 26 years ago, and while it may have been a pretty different place back then, she has built a formidable legacy from the booth ever since. She also remains DJ Magazine’s only female winner of the coveted DJ Of The Year award, and has released a number of vigorous house tracks and remixes supported by the biggest names of the underground. She will be playing a few dates this summer for the first time at Hï and is a Glitterbox debut you don’t want to miss.
