There will also be a one-off UK party at "a secret location not far from Madchester"

David Vincent, owner of Sankeys, has announced a new Ibiza party called Dance 88/89 that will see some of house and techno's original superstar DJs taking centre stage. Before that, there will also be a one-off UK bash at the end of March.


The UK party takes place at a secret location near Manchester on Easter Sunday 27 March, and features a line-up that will have ravers of a certain age anxiously double-checking they haven't fall through a hole in the space-time continuum... or perhaps fervently hoping they have! Adamski, Colin Dale, 'Evil' Eddie Richards, Fabio & Grooverider, Marshall Jefferson, Frankie Valentine, Graeme Park, MC Kinky, Mr C, Nicky Holloway, Terry Farley, Trevor Fung and 808 State are all set to appear, and there are more names still TBA. 


Dance 88/89 really gets going, though, when it moves over to the White Isle. Every Wednesday from 25 May to 28 September, Sankeys Ibiza will play host to various combinations of the above names, plus Robert Owens, Todd Terry, Judge Jules and Paul 'Trouble' Anderson... all of whom will be joining residents Bushwacka! and the original Ibiza DJ don himself, Alfredo.


Announcing the new venture, David Vincent said: "Dance 88/89 is my own personal artistic project which celebrates the original music culture of classic underground acid house, in an authentic environment. It's aim is to put the fun back into dance music. I want to thank the Universe for allowing me to be able to tell the story of the beginning of dance music in such a magical way. I also want to thank these legendary DJs, who have put their trust in me to re-produce the golden era of dance music to the world. These DJs are members of the original Beatles of house music and my childhood heroes. This party is a celebration of the return of the true legendary music and is done with a lot of love from my part."
