Wednesdays in Ibiza this summer have just got bigger with the announcement of the full line-up for BE. The big news is that Dutch superstar Armin Van Buuren, the world’s No.1 DJ, is parachuting in most Wednesdays for his exclusive residency at Space, and he’ll be joined by a whole raft of other top DJs.
BE begins on June 29th with Armin playing a three-hour set, and he’ll be ably supported by Munich-based progressive head Jerome Isma-Ae and trance stalwart Alex M.O.R.P.H. The infamous huge main club room at Space will be given over to trancey sounds, while the terrace will be more housey with residencies for Spanish house dude Wally Lopez and ‘dirty Dutch’ electro-house exponent Fedde Le Grand.
Regular Space residents Sunnery James & Ryan Marciano complete the terrace line-up most weeks, while in the main room some of the top names in trance will be joining Armin Van Buuren sporadically over the summer.
Gareth Emery (UK) and Markus Schulz (Germany), both in the world’s top ten, play several times each over the summer, and on August 3rd they will jointly play a seven-hour set which should send fans of melodic trance with a tech edge into raptures. Armin himself does a seven-hour set on August 10th, and on September 7th Armin heads up the A State Of Trance special, based around his pioneering radio show that has millions of devoted fans tuning in every week.
Ashley Wallbridge, Glenn Morrison and Blake Jerrell are just some of the other trance DJs taking up slots in the main room, while Northern Lights concerts and Ministry Of Sound nights take over Wednesdays for a couple of slots each during the summer.
For the closing of BE on September 14th all three of the above-mentioned top ten DJs – Armin, Markus Schulz and Gareth Emery – will play, with Armin taking the last slot – 4am-7am – to ensure that the BE season concludes in suitably euphoric style.
