And while every event of the summer has been a testament to Defected's undeniable legacy on the White Isle, this night promises a party to remember.
Defected has never disappointed, and neither will this lineup. DJ EZ, Amine Edge & DANCE, Groove Armada, David Penn, and Rio Tashan B2B Paige Tomlinson take over the decks in what will be an iconic night. How do you pick a favorite when the list is this good?

Their events aren’t just parties; they're love letters to music enthusiasts worldwide, bringing together old-school house heads and the freshest faces on the scene.
After 22 years, it’s evident that Defected knows the heartbeat of Ibiza. For those who've been with Defected from the start and those just joining the party, this night is a testament to the brand's commitment to its fans. "In our house, we are all equal." This isn't just a slogan; it's a promise.
Defected, in its consistent spirit, keeps the entry affordable, making sure everyone can get a piece of the action. Everyone's welcome in the Defected house, as long as you're there for the music, the vibes, and the family.
The exclusive ‘Incubus Gold by Void’ sound system is primed, the dance floor is ready and waiting, and the lineup is chomping at the bit to give you a night you’ll never forget.
If you’re on the island, there’s no excuse to miss out on this one.
UK house and garage royalty DJ EZ will be lighting up Eden Ibiza with a high-octane set.
He’s synonymous with raves and nights such as Exposure, Twice As Nice, Garage Nation, Pure Silk, Sun City, Frisky, and Club Sidewinder.
Amine Edge & DANCE have revolutionized the dance scene with their unique blend of tech and house, drawing inspiration from early House to 80's hip-house.
Not only celebrated DJs, they are also adept producers known for their infectious hooks and standout tracks like their remix of Frank Ocean's “Lost”; their CUFF label and collective continually elevate the music scene, promising to make their hip-hop influenced, bass-heavy house the signature sound of global parties.
Andy Cato and Tom Findlay make up Groove Armada, a dance music duo from the UK. The duo have released eight studio albums, four of which have charted in the UK Albums Chart top 50. They’ll be treating the Defected crowd to a DJ set on September 22.
David Penn, an icon of the Spanish electronic music scene with over 25 years of success, has cemented his status as one of the world's premier house music artists.
Acclaimed for anthems like “Big Love” and “Stand Up”, he continually captivates audiences with his live keyboard performances, infectious energy, and his unmatched ability to make dancefloors come alive.
Rio Tashan, a London-born DJ deeply rooted in underground music culture, blends soulful, funky vibes with techno elements, drawing parallels to the likes of Honey Dijon and Daft Punk.
Having showcased his talent in cities across the UK and at Defected Croatia in 2023, Rio's unique house and disco sets have quickly positioned him as an emerging luminary in the electronic music scene.
Rio will be going B2B with Paige Tomlinson, a Liverpool native who has rapidly emerged as a dynamic force in the electronic music world. She showcases her vast musical knowledge and captivating DJ sets that echo the 90s club era, with influences from artists like R.M. Project and Klubbheads.
After debuting with “Get Funky, Get Down” on Archie Hamilton’s MicroHertz imprint and delivering standout performances at renowned venues like London’s Printworks and festivals like Glastonbury, Paige's prowess both behind the decks and in the studio solidifies her as one of the industry's most promising talents.
