Hip-Hop finally has a home in Ibiza!

Sankeys announce Applebum to take charge every Tuesday night from June 21st - 13th September 2016 for a celebration of Hip Hop and R&B culture

London based Hip-Hop brand Applebum have joined forces with Sankeys Ibiza to bring together some of the most exciting and influential names on the scene to the White Isle next summer. With a view to finally giving Hip-Hop it’s first real home in Ibiza and after the success of Snoop Dogg performing at Sankeys Ibiza in 2015, Applebum will take over Tuesdays at the fastest growing and most forward-thinking club on the island from 21st June to 13th September 2016.

The legendary rapper KRS-one describes the 5 pillars of Hip-Hop culture as MCing, breakdancing, DJing, graffiti writing and knowledge. Applebum will deliver on all accounts as the groundbreaking brand kicks off its most exciting venture yet, with a 12-week celebration of Hip Hop and R&B culture. B-boying in the Lab, graffiti on the roof, MC’s battling in the DJ Box and scratch turntablists taking the crowd on a journey through the golden age of Hip-Hop, a culture that united and still continues to unite a generation. 

The ever-evolving spirit of Hip-Hop keeps on growing, sampling and taking influences from the past whilst trailblazing through the present and carving a path to the future. Applebum showcases this spirit by carefully curating and uniting true Hip-Hop legends alongside an exciting crop of new school heroes that push the envelope of the culture today.

Casting a spotlight onto the Hip-Hop influences that continue to inform the careers of some of dance music’s biggest names, Applebum’s Sankeys residency will aim to celebrate Hip-Hop and R&B culture at its purest. Expect special guest sets from names and faces not usually associated with Hip-Hop, as some of House and Techno’s finest come together to showcase their love and affinity with the scene, performing exclusive Hip-Hop sets.

So many of the island’s electronic music architects first started life with a passion for Hip-Hop culture, Applebum will reignite that passion with throwback, crate digging performances, paying homage to a genre that influenced so many of the island’s DJs that we know and love.

With a strong line-up of resident DJs already in place and full line-ups to be announced early next year, Applebum will also be joining forces with other influential Hip-Hop crews from the UK including Supa Dupa Fly, Gin & Juice, Brooklyn Zoo, Shorebitch and Cheese On Bread across the 13 weeks.

Representing a fresh, unique concept in Ibiza - one that should surprise house & techno purists as much as it’ll delight those simply looking for something different on the island - Applebum at Sankeys Ibiza is a celebration of Hip-Hop and R&B culture at its purest.  Ibiza has been waiting a very long time for a night like this but finally, thanks to Applebum and Sankeys Ibiza, Hip Hop finally has a permanent home.

Look out for full line-up announcements & ticket information in early 2016.
