One of the world’s most recognisable club brands Sankeys is to open a brand new space in the heart of beautiful Wales in Swansea. It kicks off in true Sankeys fashion with a huge all day rave on May 14th featuring Richy Ahmed, wAFF, Max Chapman, Amine Edge & DANCE, Miguel Campbell, Clive Henry, Ellie Cocks, Andrew Kay and Hypoxia.
Sankeys is no stranger to huge news. What started in a Manchester warehouse in 1994 has since turned into a global club brand with venues around the world, a famously naughty party in Ibiza and road-block events at London’s Studio 338. Most recently, the team has announced a first ever, hugely anticipated festival at Colesdale Farm on July 2nd 2022.
But first it is heading to Wales for a very special series of just nine carefully programmed and highly anticipated events, each with a strictly limited capacity. For each one, Sankeys will bring its many years of know-how and cutting edge underground sounds to a fantastic new venue powered by Warehouse Gym. Situated on a large industrial estate and as part of the incredible gym complex, this summer Sankeys will bring the biggest artists, brands and parties to Wales on a regular basis.
Consisting of several huge spaces including The Arena – a huge, imposing warehouse room – and more intimate space The Lab, the new club will feature world class sound and light as well as lots of other hidden spaces to explore deep into the night.
First up is a forward thinking mix of house and tech artists from the vanguard, including Cocoon regular and rolling minimal master wAFF who never fails to cook up a storm, plus the influential long time Ibiza favourite and Four Thirty Two label boss Richy Ahmed. There will be edgy and characterful grooves from French pair Amine Edge and DANCE, plus plenty more UK favourites and Sankeys regulars such as the on point Max Chapman, longtime underground mainstays Clive Henry and Miguel Campbell, plus more from new school titans Ellie Cox, Andrew Kay and Hypoxia.
This will be a new chapter not only in Welsh dance music history, but in the history of the UK’s dance music scene as a whole.
Location: Warehouse Gym Complex, Swansea
