After the huge success of their winter parties, Unusual Suspects returns to Sankeys Ibiza for an exciting summer-long residency. Born at the club, in the Spektrum room at Tribal Sessions in the summer of 2015, it became apparent very quickly that it needed its own night. At the end of the summer, Marco Bassi approached David Vincent and put the idea of a winter residency to him. Starting in November 2015 the night was born, and with the main resident of Detroit Love, Carl Craig firmly at the helm it quickly became the island’s most popular party. Sankeys Ibiza saw the likes of Eats Everything, Martin Buttrich, Nicole Moudaber, Stacey Pullen and Audiofly all play at the club. Also pulling out the stops week in, week out was Unusual Suspects’ main resident, the young and super talented Italian, Frank Storm. The music policy is techno, tech house and house – its synergy and connection that it had with the club has worked so well this winter, and everyone involved is extremely excited about the next chapter.
From Thursday 12th May through to Thursday 13th October, Unusual Suspects takes up its summer residency for a massive 22 weeks. The club will play host to some of the biggest names in the world of techno.
Here is what they say about their residency:
