Glitterbox's Grand Finale: The Closing Party at Hï Ibiza, Sunday, October 1, 2023.

We are soon approaching the end of another scintillating season, it might feel hard to choose which closing parties to attend. But there’s one disco-filled event that you simply cannot miss: the Glitterbox Closing Party at Hï Ibiza on Sunday, October 1.

From 11:30pm, you just know that Defected’s bedazzled sister brand is going to be bringing the heat to the world’s number-one club.

From its humble beginnings in the wild summer of 2013, Glitterbox has risen and grown to become the embodiment of Ibiza's passionate, inclusive spirit. It's a party that harks back to the golden eras of the '70s, '80s, and '90s, blending them seamlessly with the modern sounds of today.

It's a place where sequins, sass, and soul come together, where the music is not just heard but felt, and where every individual, regardless of age, gender, or background, is celebrated. It’s Glitterbox, after all!

This closing Sunday promises to be a night of unparalleled fun and thrills. The lineup, as always, is a curated blend of the old and the new, the legends and the rising stars.

Groove Armada, The Shapeshifters, Melvo Baptiste, Masters at Work, John Morales, SG Lewis, Cody Currie, and Gina Breeze and ready and raring to go (and so are we!).

But Glitterbox isn't just about the music. It's about the entire experience. The dancers, the drag queens, the live PAs – they all come together to create a spectacle that really needs to be experienced to be believed.

And, of course, there's the Wild Corner, Hï Ibiza's unisex restroom turned dance floor. It's unconventional, yes, but it’s a whole load of fun. They’re quite possibly the most exciting toilets in the world!

As we say goodbye to another season, it's essential to remember what Glitterbox stands for. In a world that's often divided, it's a beacon of unity, a place where love, acceptance, and music come together. It's a testament to the enduring spirit of Ibiza, a spirit that's been captured and spread across the globe by Glitterbox.

Let’s delve into the lineup

Cody Currie, originally from London and now based in Berlin, is a rising star in the UK house and jazz scenes, known for his diverse production styles and collaborations with notable artists like jazz pianist Joel Holmes.

With hits that have garnered millions of views on YouTube, releases on renowned labels like Toy Tonic and Razor’N’Tape, and performances in top European clubs, Currie's innovative sound and dynamic live sets have solidified his place in the modern musical landscape.

Manchester-born Gina Breeze started off her career as a resident at Leeds club SpeedQueen, and has since played all across the world, including sets in NYC, Berlin, Paris, Lyon and Helsinki.

Her releases can be found on labels such as Defected, Get Up Recordings (NYC), Viva & Manchester-based Sprechen.

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.

Having played clubs and festivals the world over, they’re ready to close off Glitterbox’s summer in Ibiza.

New York-born and bred DJ John Morales has been in the game for over 30 years and has graced the decks at many infamous venues including the iconic Studio 54.

M&M Productions was formed alongside Sergio Munzibai and the duo have remixed almost every big name including The Temptations, Tina Turner, The Rolling Stones, Spandau Ballet, Aretha Franklin and Billy Ocean.

Morales himself has residencies not only at Hï, but at Ministry of Sound and Bussey Building in London.

Masters At Work, the iconic house/garage production and remix duo, consists of "Little" Louie Vega and Kenny "Dope" Gonzalez.

Since their inception in 1990, they have redefined club music by blending diverse genres, from Latin to jazz to soul, and have collaborated with renowned artists, producing hits under various names including MAW, KenLou, Sole Fusion, and notably, Nuyorican Soul.

Melvo Baptiste started his Glitterbox journey by hosting the Glitterbox radio show in 2017 and becoming the voice of the brand. His debut release on the label was a turning point in Baptiste’s career and gained support from music legends such as Louie Vega, Dave Lee, and Horse Meat Disco.

SG Lewis, a renowned DJ and singer-songwriter, first gained significant attention with his 2021 club record Times, particularly the hit track "Chemicals."

With his latest double album, AudioLust & HigherLove, the artist showcases his vocal talents further, reflecting his musical evolution during the pandemic era.

Being signed to Defected Records since 2008, it’s only fitting that they’re playing the Glitterbox closing party. The Shapeshifters are iconic figures in the UK dance scene, and best known for their legendary hit "Lola’s Theme."

With over 15 years in the industry, they've showcased their adaptability and quality by launching their label and radio show Love Inc Music, and releasing standout tracks like “It’s You” featuring River.

Their enduring presence, even as musical trends shift, is a testament to their unparalleled talent and influence in house music.
