Classic Ibiza is bringing its heady blend of Balearic beats back to Hatfield House on Saturday, August 31, 2019, following the resounding success of this summer’s concert.

A limited number of early bird tickets are available at a discounted price of £36.

They will cost £39.50 thereafter.

This year’s concert was a massive hit with the Hertfordshire audience, with the Urban Soul Orchestra, DJ Goldierocks and a host of live vocalists performing some of dance music’s most iconic tracks.

Lisa Ward, director of Revival Productions, organisers of Classic Ibiza, said: “We’ve been overwhelmed by enquiries about next year’s concert following the resounding success of our Hatfield debut over the summer.

“The weather certainly treated us all to a true taste of the White Isle for the last show of our seven venue UK tour.

“It was fantastic to see so many family groups in the audience.

“We have got some really exciting plans for next year, which will take Classic Ibiza to another level, so watch this space!”

Classic Ibiza starts with a chill-out set where people can enjoy their picnics and a drink, or dance along as the sun fades.

Then DJ Goldierocks – aka Sam Hall – will ramp things up in the interval, getting the crowd into the mood before the USO and vocalists return to the stage to bring a vibrant atmosphere to the summer evening.

One classic dance track will follow another, as the delightful grounds of Hatfield House turn into a magical, al fresco celebration, with accompanying lasers.

Classic Ibiza’s Facebook followers will once again be given the opportunity to vote for their favourite tracks to be added to the set-list next year.

Stephen Hussey, conductor and founder of the Urban Soul Orchestra, said: “Going by the reaction of the Hatfield crowd over the summer we clearly hit the spot with the set-list, but I’m already busy delving into dance music’s rich archive of classic tracks to add some truly stonking tunes to next year’s programme.

“We’ve got a few other surprises up our sleeve too, which I can’t wait to share. See you next summer, Hatfield!”

In addition to the amazing music, what really sets Classic Ibiza apart is that it is a concert for all the family.

Set in the delightful outdoor setting of Hatfield House, with easy access to transport links, concert-goers can bring their own food and drink, or take advantage of numerous stalls selling street food and refreshments.

Car parking is also free – both for coaches and cars.

Adult early bird tickets cost £36, while children aged five to 16 pay £17.50. Under-5s go free.

Classic Ibiza will also be performing at a number of other venues next summer.

Tickets are already on sale for 2019’s concerts at Capesthorne Hall, Cheshire (Saturday, June 29), Ragley Hall, Warwickshire (Saturday, July 6), Harewood House, Yorkshire (Saturday, July 20) and Bowood House, Wiltshire (Saturday, August 3).
