Amnesia Ibiza continues to announce its long-awaited 2021 season in backwards order with news of it’s always unforgettable Do Not Sleep Closing Party on October 12th. This year’s much-needed celebration will be headlined by house and techno tastemakers Patrick Topping, Paul Woolford, Cinthie and Gerd Janson on the Terrace, and Archie Hamilton, Sidney Charles and Chris Stussy b2b S.A.M.
Do Not Sleep launched in 2014 and immediately changed the Ibiza landscape with a non-conformist attitude exemplified by its ‘straight through crew’ mantra and hashtag. The party’s firm focus on young, fresh talents and music-first, underground-only vibes also stands it apart. Initially a nomadic party in hot demand at Space, Pacha and Privilege, it eventually set up a more lasting home at the globally renowned Amnesia. This year the brand will be on a mini world tour, hosting club events and festival stages all over the globe, always with the hottest house and techno acts providing the sounds.
This closing party at the famously authentic Ibiza superclub that is Amnesia will be no different. It will play out across the club’s two iconic spaces – The Terrace, and Main Room. In the former will be Patrick Topping, the Trick party and label head who is very much the face of contemporary British house and techno. He will be joined by the relentless Paul Woolford, who can do everything from classy piano house bangers to face-melting techno, all with endless reserves of passion and energy. Running Back label boss and famously eclectic, party-starting DJ and deep digging vinyl collector Gerd Janson also plays with an always unpredictable bag of tricks. Completing the Terrace is Berlin mainstay, record label boss and record store owner Cinthie, whose raw, deep, authentic brand of house music has made her one of the best in the game.
The Main Room will be lit up with the pounds of Archie Hamilton, who runs three labels in Moscow Records, Moss Co. & Arkityp, and someone who is one of the most sought after DJs in the game because of his knack for laying down sets of irresistible minimal-leaning house. Heavy House Society label boss Sidney Charles also lines up with his bass-heavy, chunky, floor-facing house grooves which are designed for maximum physical impact. Lastly, Chris Stussy b2b S.A.M is a face-off between two vital talents and masters of electronic funk and slick, spaced out house. Between them, they have landed on classy labels like Stussy’s Up The Stussy, Locus and Eastenderz.
