Electric is a Refuge at Pikes Ibiza
Back at our Electric Weekender in May, the Ibiza legend that is Pikes Hotel hosted a day and night that saw over 2,500 dancers through the doors and experienced the supreme talents of Nancy Noise, Leo Mass, Alfredo and many more. This September, this beautiful partnership will reunite and this time take to the shores of Ibiza for ‘Electric is a Refuge at Pikes’, the long weekender.
This much-anticipated weekender will open Friday 15 September with The Electric Chair at Pikes, featuring at the helm, a trio of acts who have delivered a musical fervour to Chair regulars since its inception. The founding members – The Unabombers – will be joined by Justin Robertson and James Holroyd for a 12-hour extravaganza from 6pm to 6am.
Saturday 16 September sees The Pikes House Party presents HomoElectric from 6pm to 6am. A home for homos, heteros, lesbos and don’t knows. Sexual orientation and music genres are irrelevant on the Homo dancefloors, which are held regularly in Manchester and London. Into their melting pot they throw disco, house, techno, rock ‘n’ roll trash, outsider pop, dirt, and glamour with no pomp or pretension. Headlining the proceedings will be Nancy Noise, a DJ so steeped in the history of Ibiza that she fell in love with the White Island back in 1986, and who worked her magic at the inaugural weekender at The Refuge. HomoElectric’s very own resident supremo Jamie Bull will join the bill with special guest and legendary Balearic DJ, Leo Mas.
The musical culmination of the Electric Chair is a Refuge at Pikes on Sunday 17 from 1pm to 3am. The Refuge Recovery will be a carefully crafted pick of the finest selectors on the island, bringing this long celebration to a fitting close. Featuring the Manc luminary, Ruf Dug, who’s a man who can bring analogue heat, weirdness, expensive records and 50p bangers alike. Luke Unabomber, The Chair guv’nor along with one of the finest purveyors of vibe-selection to come out of the UK, Justin Harris (one half of the legendary Freaks duo), and The Brothers Grim – two men who’s left-field knowledge of worldly musical oddities knows no bounds – will close off this long weekend spectacular.
