Glitterbox returns to Hï Ibiza on Sunday, July 23, 2023.

Sundays in Ibiza have been indelibly marked with a glittering stamp by the Glitterbox crew, as they prepare to bring back the island's most vibrant and glamorous disco house party on Sunday, July 23 from 11:30pm.

Get ready to put on your dancing shoes and sequin up for another trip to Hï Ibiza for an unmatched night of fun and frolic!

Nothing encapsulates the spirit of Ibiza better than the vivacious atmosphere of Glitterbox. Conjured by the masterminds behind Defected, the party has been rocking the island since 2014, finding its true home at Hï Ibiza in 2017.

Every Sunday night is an explosion of color and music, a beautiful mix of house, funk, and disco beats that keep you dancing until the early hours.

This edition promises a stellar lineup of electronic music magicians, who are all set to entertain you with reimagined house, disco, and funk from midnight till the break of dawn.

The party doesn't stop at the dance floor; it spills over to the performers, dancers, and drag queens who come together to create a spectacle that's as visually stunning as it is entertaining.

The live PA for the week comes from non-other than Kathy Sledge.

The Grammy-nominated icon is celebrated for her diverse talent as a singer, songwriter, author, producer, and manager, has gained global acclaim for her profound contributions to music, most notably as the signature voice of Sister Sledge behind anthems like "We Are Family".

Her dynamic career spans chart-topping hits, platinum albums, successful genre explorations, collaborations with esteemed artists, and innovative stage and screen productions.

And who could forget the infamous Wild Corner? Tucked inside Hï Ibiza's unisex restroom, the Wild Corner has a DJ booth and dance floor that have seen some of the most electrifying sets on the island. This week it's hosted by island favorites, Melon Bomb.

Be ready to take your boogie to the bathroom; you never know who you might bump into!

Since its early days at the now-closed club Booom! and the Space Terrace, Glitterbox has continued to evolve and refine its offering. Today, it's not just a party; it's an experience. It's a journey back to the vivid disco era of the '70s, '80s, and '90s, peppered with the glamour and sass of today.

This is not just any party; it's THE party. Gay, straight, or just here for the beats – everyone's welcome when the doors open on Sunday, July 23.

The only rule is to come as you are and leave your inhibitions at the door. Glitterbox is ready to welcome you home.

We’ll see you on the dance floor!
