Introducing Octan - Ibiza's newest club

The new concept takes over the former Sankeys site.

Readying to offer an alternative to the traditional clubbing experience on Ibiza, Octan is set to launch in Playa d'en Bossa later this summer.

Occupying the notorious site that previously homed Sankeys, the space comes with a strong visual identity and musical heritage. The ownership have stated their intent on retaining the gritty essence that the past incarnation was renowned for.

That's not all. The opening will take place on Sunday 7 July. The best part? Steve Lawler's legendary Sunday hangout Warriors will host the night, also returning with a weekly residency thereafter.

Lawler will be supported by FUSE pair Enzo Siragusa and Seb Zito, with newcomer Ben Sterling the fourth name on the line-up. Spectre line-up TBA.

We're looking forward to getting lost once again in the warren of rooms, open-air roof terrace, secret cinema, stairways and the infamous rest rooms.

While the bigger venues on the island may sacrifice inclusivity and intimacy for the grand spectacle and lavish production, Octan intends to deliver an ethos more personal and welcoming.

Focussing on independent and emerging artists, the balanced team of resident DJs will consist of Stephan Ghenacia, Kellie Allen, Lindsey Matthews and Ryan O'Gorman. Ryan will also operate as the venue's hand's on musical director.

Launching with a core programme that centres around the weekend from Friday to Monday, details of phase one residencies and special one-offs will be announced soon. The onus will place an emphasis on quality over quantity.

Preparations on the venue are ongoing - and, indeed, many of them will be ad hoc and even real time. Plans are underway to incorporate light installations and showcase A/V specialists, including Nicholas Dixon and Andreas Brooks.

Anybody keen to work with Octan, including graffiti artists and other urban creatives are encouraged to contact them directly.

It sounds to us as though the team behind Octan are taking their time to fine-tune all areas of the club. We're certainly excited to see what they unveil. Of course, we will announce more news when the time is right.

The return of Warriors is sure to cause much hysteria. If you want to be a part of this historic night, we can only advise you to secure your tickets below. Roadblock guaranteed.
