Sankeys-Awards_claireb4_061014Just before it wrapped up the summer season for this year, Sankeys Ibiza held its first underground Award Ceremony. Having celebrated 20 years of Sankeys this year, at the ceremony David Vincent regaled the audience with an amusing and insightful half hour talk and slideshow about the history of Sankeys – where it came from, and where it is going.

This summer Sankeys has helped to define the sound of Ibiza with more than 200 DJs playing at the club, offering up fantastic sets of proper electronic music week after week. The Award Ceremony was deigned to represent and reward the artists who play forward thinking music. All the award winners were chosen through public voting, except for the awards for Best Ever Sankeys Essential Mix and Best Resident, which were chosen by Sankeys staff.
