Legendary Manchester nightclub Sankeys–which has operated in one form or another since 1994–closes its doors on May 6th. While the UK will lose one of its finest clubs, Sankeys will remain one of the biggest names on the EDM scene. Club founder David Vincent explained that the decision was made to allow them to concentrate solely on their Ibiza venue. Judging by the Carnival Cities announcement, it’s a decision that will be more than worth it.
It’s an interesting concept. Building on the successful flagship Saturday night at the club, Carnival Cities involves inviting a select group of promoters and labels over to Ibiza and allowing them to show the island what they’ve got to offer. Running from the opening party on the 8th June to the closing on the 28th September, the full season sees 17 different parties from eight countries and twelve cities. The guest promoters include Bugged Out (London), Culprit (LA), D-Edge (Rio and Sao Paulo), mobilee (Berlin) and Tenax (Italy). With a mix of resident and guest DJs from across the world, including Boys Noize, Finnebassen, Todd Terry and William Kouam Djoko, Carnival Cities will certainly be one of the more eclectic offerings on the White Isle this summer.
