More Manumission 2008 news

June 10th, 2008



The Soundtrack…

Renowned for their vanguard ways, this year Manumission have enlisted the help of Mark (Wall of Sound) Jones and between them, have put together a line up that will have Ibiza shaking in its platform shoes. From Zane Lowe to 2ManyDJs, Mylo to FatBoySlim, Kissy Sell Out to Mark Ronson, these are merely a few of the must see/must hear guests that are set to provide the soundtrack to Manumission 2008. With this year’s parties taking over both rooms of the world’s best club, it’s a match made in Heaven and a gift from the Gods for any discerning music buff.

The Culture Fest…

But Manumission, as always, is not just about the music; rather, it is a cultural explosion that this year incorporates elements of opera from Belgium’s appraised Elise Caluwaerts, Flamenco from the island’s very own Paco Fernandez, costumes from the hand of one of Spain’s finest couturiers, Manuel Albaran, film from Phil Silcock, art from Sergio Ferrer and life changing affirmations from the Barefoot Doctor.
The King & Queen of Manumission, Mike and Claire will take to the stage, joined by their ever adoring and loving crew and cast, in a story of love and gore, life and death, glitter and gyrations, acrobatics and disco antidotes.

The Show and its Cast…

With a storyline based on the weird and the wonderful, the Manumission ‘Coney Island Review’ combines a cast of beauties and freaks in a four act tale of Vaudevillian mischief.

Johnny Golden, Antonio Culebras, Polly Fey, Antonio de la Rosa, the Dynamite Boys and the Manumission Girls are merely a few of the names that make up the momentous cast in a tale of kidnapping and cloning, anti-corporate clampdown and chipping.

Set to a soundtrack created especially for Manumission by A Human, and including lyrics penned by the Queen herself, Claire Manumission, the story tells of the evil Fraudster and the Dandy Doctor’s attempt to kidnap and clone the Manumission crew before dooming them forever to a life of Zombie Hedonism set in a dangerous drag room of transvestites… will our heroes escape from the clutches of the Terrible Two and continue on their Manumission World Tour??

Only one way to find out..

Never one to shy from the weird and the wonderful, this year Manumission is also presenting the ‘Freak of the Week’ with special guests including Lucky, the World’s Most Tattooed Man, and Baby The Acrobatic Vagina.. say no more.

Ibiza Rocks Hotel Opening party review

June 3rd, 2008

ibiza rocks hotelThe long weekend that roused the island from its winter slumber began with the first International Music Summit to be held here on Ibiza, at the appropriately imperious and intellectual Atzaro, Fenicia and Pike’s hotel venues, to conclude five days later at the debauchery and hedonism of Europe’s biggest annual party – the Space opening…

The transition from intellectual navel-gazing to the study of stilettos below the early season crop of minimalist beachwear was interspersed with the opening of the new Ibiza Rocks Hotel in San Antonio.

A building site only weeks before, the place looked not only stunning but buzzing. An excited crowd test drove the unusual but striking decor, which allied to the hotel’s diverse Ibiza Rocks summer events programme and flexible affordable accommodation (59 UKP for three nights and the Opening party gig!), looks like a fabulous formula at a time when the IMS conference seemed to conclude that ‘live music’ was the only way forward for the music industry.

the enemyWhilst we ruminated on the consequences of all of this, The Enemy replaced Radio 1 DJ Zane Lowe on stage and the crowd went ballistic as the heavens opened and we all danced in the rain.

This is Ibiza, and on a weekend like this it can neither be faulted nor bettered…
