Organisers have announced the winning tracks that will be performed at the Classic Ibiza concert in Hatfield this summer following an online poll.

Classic Ibiza’s Facebook followers were given the opportunity over Easter to vote for their favourite dance tracks to be added to the playlist at this summer’s concert in the grounds of Hatfield House on Saturday, September 1.

Held in association with dance music pioneers Ministry of Sound, Classic Ibiza promises to be Hertfordshire’s biggest open-air celebration of dance music in 2018.

Concert organisers were inundated with responses, with a staggering 10,403 votes being cast.

The winning tracks are:

• Out of Space (The Prodigy)

• Hey Boy, Hey Girl (The Chemical Brothers)

• Free (Ultra Naté)

• Touch Me (Rui Da Silva, featuring Cassandra)

• Rhythm Of The Night (Corona)

Performed by The Urban Soul Orchestra (USO), DJ Goldierocks and a host of live vocalists, the Classic Ibiza set list already includes some of the most iconic dance tunes dating back to the ’90s.

Stephen Hussey, founder and conductor of USO, said: “All of the winning tracks helped to create truly incredible moments in dance music’s long history.

“It’s great to see that the Classic Ibiza audience has such great taste!”

He added: “We are really excited by the prospect of adding our unique twist to the arrangements and allowing the Hatfield audience to witness the tracks that they voted for being performed by a full orchestra in this beautiful outdoor setting.

“It’s going to be an incredible evening – roll on the summer.”

Classic Ibiza took place in Hertfordshire for the first time last year at Knebworth House.

This year’s classical-meets-dance extravaganza will take place in the grounds of Hatfield House.

The concert will start with an hour 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 turn things up during the interval, getting the crowd into the mood before the orchestra and vocalists return to the stage at 9pm to bring a vibrant atmosphere to the summer evening.

One classic dance track will follow another, as the delightful setting of Hatfield Park turns into a magical, al fresco celebration, with accompanying lasers.

USO has performed and recorded with a veritable who’s who in the dance music industry, including Nightmares On Wax, Groove Armada, Ultra Naté, Octave One, Full Intention, Soul II Soul, Robert Miles, Sonique and Spiller.

In addition to the amazing tunes and artists, 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 high quality street food and refreshments.

Car parking is free – both for coaches and cars.

The Hatfield concert is due to sell-out in advance.

Adult tickets are £39.50, and it costs £17.50 for children aged five to 16. Under-5s go free.

• USO has released Classic Ibiza, an album of iconic dance anthems. It features many of the tracks being played on the night and is available on CD and all major music websites and apps.
