CLASSIC IBIZA

Don’t miss these stone-cold dance classics being performed live by a 32 piece orchestra, DJ and vocalists at Harewood House on Saturday 20 July.

With just over four weeks to go until Classic Ibiza in association with San Miguel brings a taste of the “White Isle” to West Yorkshire, the concert organisers have revealed the track-list which is packed full of some of dance music’s most iconic anthems.

The show sold out last year, so it’s advisable to get your tickets now if you don’t want to miss what will be a truly memorable evening.

Performed by The Urban Soul Orchestra, DJ Goldierocks and a host of live vocalists, the concert is split into two halves. The evening begins with a chill-out set where people can enjoy their picnics and a drink, or dance along as the sun fades.

The tracks in this half are:

Slip Into Something More Comfortable (Kinobe), Here With Me (Dido), Moments In Love (Art of Noise), Little Fluffy Clouds (The Orb), Why Does My Heart Feel So Bad? (Moby),Unfinished Sympathy (Massive Attack), Pacific State (808 State), Missing (Everything But the Girl), Another Chance (Roger Sanchez), Children / 9pm Till I Come (Robert Miles / ATB), Adagio For Strings (William Orbit / Ferry Corsten) and Blackwater (Octave One).

Stephen Hussey, conductor and founder of The Urban Soul Orchestra, comments: “The tunes in the first half are the perfect soundtrack to a warm summer’s evening. Sit back, enjoy a few sips of something nice and let us transport you to one of the White Isle’s coolest chill-out bars… in the heart of Yorkshire.”

The first half is followed by an interval where DJ Goldierocks will turn things up, getting the crowd into the mood before the orchestra and vocalists return to the stage to perform some real dance-floor fillers.

The tracks in the second half are:

Pjanoo (Eric Prydz), Easy/Superstylin’ (Groove Armada), Insomnia (Faithless), Firestarter (The Prodigy), Out Of Space (The Prodigy), Hey Boy, Hey Girl (The Chemcial Brothers), Touch Me (Rui de Silva), Rhythm Of The Night (Corona), Free (Ultra Naté), Resurrection (PPK), 7 Days And One Week (B.B.E.), Café Del Mar (Energy 52) Encore Une Fois (DJ Sash), Blind Faith (Chase & Status),You Got The Love (The Source ft. Candi Staton), Sweet Harmony (Liquid), Everybody’s Free (Rozalla), When Love Takes Over (David Guetta ft. Kelly Rowland), Giant (Calvin Harris and Rag ‘n’ Bone Man), Levels (Avicci), Titanium (David Guetta ft. Sia) and Don’t You Worry Child (Swedish House Mafia).

Stephen Hussey adds: “These tracks are definetly the ‘Yang’ to the first half’s ‘Yin’. Darker, more powerful and in certain instances fiery. Buckle up and enjoy the ride, Harewood!”

A total of 17 new tracks have been added to the set this year, including the five most popular tunes voted for by the Classic Ibiza audience over Easter. They are: You Got the Love, Giant, Everybody’s Free, Sweet Harmony, Liquid; and When Love Takes Over.

In addition to the amazing tracks and artists, what really sets Classic Ibiza apart is that it is a concert for all the family. Set in the delightful grounds of Harewood House, concert goers can bring their own food and drink, or take advantage of numerous stalls selling high-quality street-food and refreshments. Car-parking is free (both for coaches and cars), so whether you are six or 60 you are assured of having a fantastic evening in a safe and family-friendly environment.

USO has released “Classic Ibiza”, an album of iconic dance anthems, which features many of the tracks being played on the night and is available on CD and all major music websites and apps.Tickets and information: www.classicibiza.co.uk
