Fleet of Foot

Armada announce epic Ibiza plans

This summer season, the White Isle is set to rock like never before. Each Tuesday, Armada will be blasting Ibiza’s Amnesia with their biggest and best line ups so far. Now in their fifth year, the clubbing institution, masterminded by world’s No.1 DJ Armin van Buuren, is set to introduce a house flotilla to its epic trance fleet, with Contact taking over the terrace to bring a funkier element to their groove Armada.

Kicking off on 17th June, each week, a renowned label will be invited to rip up the terrace, with Toolroom and Yoshi Toshi already confirmed. The line up is already looking bananas, with Sharam, Mark Knight, Laidback Luke, Seb Fontaine, Tocadisco, Matthew Dekay, Martijn Ten Velden, Brian Cross, Richard Dinsdale, Cedric Gervais, Mar-T and Kurd Maverick all playing.

Meanwhile in the main room, it’ll be Armin’s first summer as king of the DJs, and accordingly, he’ll be pulling out all the stops, playing an astounding 11 weeks out of the 14 week season. He’ll also be recording a special ‘A State of Trance’ mix at the venue, and hosting one of his infamous Armin Only events – two nights which are guaranteed to raise the roof. Joining him will be Markus Schulz, Marco V, ATB, Hernan Cattaneo, Sharam (Deep Dish), Rank 1, Matthew Dekay, Menno De Jong, Blake Jarrell, John O’Callaghan, Gareth Emery, Glenn Morrison and many more. Ibiza 2008 is looking that much hotter now!
