Defected launches the line-up for its anticipated 2022 Ibiza season, with tickets now on sale. Returning to San Antonio’s Eden for the longest season in memory, the brand prepares to embark on a long hot summer of house with 23-weeks of parties. Bringing a rich array of house music talent to San Antonio including headliners such as Floorplan, Hannah Wants, John Summit, Gorgon City, S.A.M. and many more across the summer, Defected is set to make a splash with its long-awaited return to the Island.
“Absence makes the beat grow stronger. For over three decades Ibiza has been front and centre of dance music’s calendar and the enforced two-season hiatus has only served to make us all appreciate how integral the Island is to the dance music community. We are beyond energised to know that we are returning to Eden, San Antonio next summer.” – Simon Dunmore, Defected founder.
Championing both household names and rising stars alike, this year’s line-up demonstrates Defected’s gold-standard musical policy as it recruits the biggest names in house music for the season. An opportunity to showcase artists who have released on the label, Denmark’s S.A.M., Moxy Music founder Darius Syrossian and Dutch mainstay Ferreck Dawn will all head to Eden following successful record releases on the Defected imprint in 2022. London’s Afro house champions Sef Kombo and Kitty Amor are among those making their Eden debuts this summer, alongside fresh talent like LP Giobbi, Anna Collecta and Kayper while returning favourites like label head honcho Simon Dunmore, Sam Divine, Catz ‘N Dogz and Melé reinstate their positions as residents for the season.
Remaining one of the Island’s most affordable events, tickets for the 2022 season are now on sale from £22. Making clubbing accessible for all generations has been a core part of Defected’s Ibiza offering since launching its weekly residency at Eden in 2017, allowing clubbers from all walks of life to enjoy the label’s unique brand of house party and DJs of the highest calibre. With free weekly pre-parties at iconic sunset spot Café Mambo also making their return, Defected will once again make its mark on San Antonio Friday nights for the summer.
As a new generation of house fans prepare to experience Ibiza to the fullest for the first time throughout this summer’s season, under the slogan In Our House We Are All Equal Defected invites them to celebrate everything there is to love about house music, sharing its values of inclusivity, togetherness and escapism on the dancefloor.
Defected Ibiza 2022 will run from 29th April – 30th September. £22 tickets are now on sale here: defect.click/tickets-ibiza-22.
