Get ready to kick off your weekend with an unforgettable night in San Antonio’s Eden.
The summer season is just heating up, and with several explosive events already passed, we can't wait to see what the 7th installment has in store for us.
Promising a 100% house music policy, Defected maintains its reputation as a must-do event when you’re on the White Isle.
It’s a firm favorite with both workers and tourists, so you can guarantee that the dancefloor will be full from the doors opening at midnight through to the lights coming on at 6am.
Not only does Defected bring unbeatable energy and a jam-packed line-up that will make house music lovers drool, but it also upholds its legacy as one of Ibiza's most accessible parties.
Remaining one of the cheapest club nights on the island, with tickets below €45, you're in for an unbeatable night that won't break the bank. Defected is all about inclusivity, togetherness, and escapism on the dance floor. If you haven’t already, it’s your turn to become part of the family.
Defected's enduring popularity in San Antonio, its successful seasons at Pacha, the now-defunct Booom!, and the continuous stint at Eden Ibiza, are testimonies to the party's legendary status. It's no wonder the queues wrap around the block every Friday night!
The line-up this week consists of Ferreck Dawn, Eats Everything, Sam Divine, Low Steppa, and Dunmore Brothers - a collection of Defected favorites that have a history of setting the decks and dance floor on fire.
New CEO Wez Saunders is most definitely keeping the Defected legacy alive after taking over the reins from the OG Simon Dunmore last summer.
“Ibiza has always been our spiritual home and such an integral part of the dance music community. Our relationship with Eden has been a core part of Defected’s Ibiza offering since 2017 and this will continue throughout the summer next year. We look forward to returning to San Antonio in 2023” – Wez Saunders, CEO.
The ethos of Defected still stands strong - 'In our house, we are all equal.' Come join the family and experience the unifying power of house music at Eden Ibiza on Friday, June 9.
It’s not just a party; it’s a feeling, it's a vibe, it's Defected!
Ferrek Dawn has been a DJ and producer for almost 20 years, with releases on Defected, Toolroom, Relief, and Kittball Records. He rose to fame during his residency at DansSalon in Eindhoven, before going on to manage the high-profile Sensation dance events as well as working at trance label Armada.
Daniel Pearce, aka Eats Everything, has made an indelible mark in the electronic music industry for over a decade. A proud product of the culturally rich and influential city of Bristol, he has carried his unique sound across the globe. He burst onto the scene in 2011 with his debut track, "Entrance Song", and has never looked back. His expertise extends across an eclectic mix of genres that encompasses house, techno, disco, garage, and jungle, to name a few.
Sam Divine started off as part of the Defected street team and has built her way up through the ranks, now thriving as the host of the Defected radio show as well as an integral part of the brand's DJ roster. The ‘First Lady of Defected’ shows no signs of slowing down and will be bringing her infectious energy back to Eden throughout the summer of 2023.
Without a doubt, one of the most influential house music artists of the present day, Low Steppa has continued to push out incredible releases and remixes throughout the years on influential labels such as Armada, Strictly Rhythm, his own Simma Black, and, of course, Defected.
The music most definitely runs in the family. Brothers Lucas and Louie, better known as Dunmore Brothers, are the sons of Defected’s original head honcho and have made waves in the electronic music scene over the last few years, working seamlessly together behind the decks. With global clubs and festivals under their belt, the boys are currently upping their skills in production and A&R, showing signs of becoming truly unstoppable.
