Revered producer, DJ and label owner Guy Gerber returns to the White Isle for the 2017 season, with another edition of his much-talked about residency RUMORS. The evening party series will run for a full 22 weeks, taking place every Sunday from May 21st until October 15th.
The event will stay in its home of Destino - Pacha’s luxury resort - but promises a newly renovated set up for the 2017 season; the new layout promising to maximise the stunning clifftop, sunset setting that the Talamanca-based hotel is known for. As with all RUMORS events, production will play a key part in making the event special - the colourful souk-like decor giving the party a unique, exotic feel unlike anything else on the island.
The party’s clandestine, relaxed and welcoming feel has seen it become known for attracting a diverse, cosmopolitan and clued-up crowd, in turn evoking the feel of the original Ibiza parties before the super clubs and big names made it what it is today. Instead of big promotion, each night’s individual lineups are only announced a few days before on socials - with only those with their ear to the ground knowing who can be expected each night.
With a long list of high profile guests set to appear throughout the season, guests are guaranteed the best musical offerings no matter which week they come to. This year’s lineup sees some of the highest biggest guests to date confirmed to put in an appearance; Sven Väth, Dubfire, Martin Buttrich, Cassy and Guti to name a few. Despite the calibre of guests on offer, the party has always and will always be free to get into.
Whilst RUMORS Ibiza has stayed true to its ethos and nature since its 2014 conception, the event series has now expanded into a globally successful brand. It holds out sold out shows at BPM, Miami Music Week and huge London venue Great Suffolk Street Warehouse, as well as more relaxed affairs in idyllic destinations like Sardinia, Mykonos and Tel Aviv. Most recently, Guy took over LA’s Chinatown alongside DJ Harvey for a very special edition of RUMORS.
Guy Gerber thrives on confounding expectations - with him at the helm, RUMORS looks set to remain the go-to party for those wanting to experience a different side of Ibiza yet with the promise of the highest calibre of musical curation.
