Classic Ibiza to return to Bowood for 2022

Tickets for the popular music event's 2022 dates go on sale today.

Following severe weather warnings issued by the Met Office, one of Classic Ibiza’s two nights at Bowood this year was cancelled to safeguard the audience, performers and crew. As a large proportion of people chose to retain their tickets, availability for Saturday 23 July 2022 is already limited.

The Urban Soul Orchestra may have only just taken their final bow on Classic Ibiza’s sold-out 2021 tour, but the organisation team said plans are already in the works to make next year’s celebration of White Isle-inspired house music even better.

Tickets went on sale today on Classic Ibiza’s website for Bowood House on Friday 22 & Saturday 23 July and due to the popularity of the show are expected to sell out fast.

Classic Ibiza’s Lisa Ward said: “Classic Ibiza isn’t just about the amazing music and artists – it’s also about the incredible atmosphere and overall audience experience. I think that’s why people love it so much and come back every year.

“Our challenge is to continually build on that by coming up with fresh ideas that have the ‘wow-factor’. Believe it or not, there are already plans afoot to take next year’s show to yet another level. Watch this space Bowood!”

Members of the public can once again expect performances by Stephen Hussey’s Urban Soul Orchestra, live vocalists and headline DJs, including Goldierocks and Jose Luis.

A spokesperson for the event said: "From an atmosphere similar to one of Ibiza’s iconic chill-out bars, the rhythm steadily builds and as night falls the Bowood audience will be transported to a magical alfresco nightclub, accompanied by a breath-taking laser and light show. In short, Classic Ibiza is bringing the White Isle to Wiltshire."

Apart from Classic Ibiza’s performing artists, there are other aspects of this year’s show that will also be making a return next summer.

Lisa Ward added: “One of the features of this year’s show we will definitely be keeping are the picnic area social spaces and walk-ways. Our audience loved these as they can find their party more easily after heading into the dance-zone or visiting our bars and food outlets.

“Car parking is free, and you can bring your own food and drink. The only thing we insist on is that you bring your dancing shoes and embrace the family-friendly vibe.”

Classic Ibiza is also performing at five other venues next summer:

- Ragley Hall, Warwickshire (Friday 1 & Saturday 2 July)

- Weston Park, Shropshire (Saturday 16 July)

- Burghley House, Lincolnshire (Saturday 30 July)

- Blickling Estate, Norfolk (Saturday 6 August)

- Hatfield House, Hertfordshire (Saturday 20 August).

Tickets are priced at £45 for adults, £20 for children aged 5 –16, and under 5s go free.
