The international line up includes techno, house and minimal wizard, Circoloco-Ibiza’s prized resident, Luciano who just this month was voted no. 2 best DJ in the world by Resident Advisor, deep house current favourite Henrik Schwarz playing a LIVE set and Âme –producer of the world-wide club smash hit Rej returns after the legendary DJ set at The Aquarium last year left people screaming for more.
