Classic Ibiza continued its eight-night summer tour at Bowood House on Friday and Saturday night.
The 32-piece Urban Soul Orchestra led the Wiltshire crowd on a magical journey of the very best in Balearic-infused house music.
Despite the great British weather, over 11,000 people of all ages attended the show – the venue’s largest-ever audience, with the Saturday night selling out long in advance.
Classic Ibiza’s Lisa Ward said: “A massive thank you to our incredible Bowood House audience who turned out in their thousands over the weekend.
"The Classic Ibiza Wiltshire massive clearly know how to party, rain or shine. We can’t wait to do it all again – hopefully next year with a touch of Ibizan sunshine!”
The concert began at 5pm with a new Chill-Out DJ Set, as the crowd settled into the show’s family-friendly vibe. Former Pacha Ibiza resident DJ Jose Luis then took control of the decks for his Latin House Set, which for the first time included a live jamming session with members of USO.
Next up, USO and DJ Goldierocks took centre stage for the Sundowner Set, performing these iconic tracks:
Poppiholla (Chicane), Inner City Life (Goldie), Touch Me (Rui Da Silva), Rhythm of The Night (Corona), What Is Love (Haddaway), Naked in the Rain (Blue Pearl), The Man With The Red Face (Laurent Garnier), For An Angel(Paul van Dyke), Blind Faith (Chase & Status), Sun Is Shining (Bob Marley vs. Funkstar De Luxe), Red Alert(Basement Jaxx), Blackwater (Octave One), Sky (Sonique) and Theme from S’Express (S’Express).
USO took a break during Goldierocks’ Deep House DJ Set, a mix of classic and fresh Ibiza anthems. They were then reunited on stage for the Dance Set, packed with these house anthems, accompanied by a spectacular laser show:
