Summer is upon us once more on the white isle with the old abandoned zoo at Benimussa Park playing host to two of this year’s opening parties.
First up, Burnski and Spencer Parker headline the inaugural fiesta of the season at the open-air venue, The Zoo Grand Opening Party on Wednesday 28th May, before The Zoo Project embarks upon another summer of Saturday events with Dungeon Meat, Roy Davis Jr, Session Victim (live), Borrowed Identity, Medlar and Evan Baggs all playing for The Zoo Project Opening Party on Saturday 7th June.
Dancing under the sunshine and the stars is once again the order of the day as the zoo opens its doors for the first gathering of the summer on 28th May with Burnski and Spencer Parker amongst the DJs. Performance is once again at the heart of the Zoo experience for 2014 and this summer promises a whole host of new performance and art installations from The Minx FX team. Expect more than a few changes inside the zoo, with the promoters once again shaking the place up with a healthy dose of recycled materials and vintage furniture.
The full line-up for Wednesday 28th May is: Burnski, Spencer Parker, Federico Grazzini, Acid Mondays, Lee Pennington, Defex, JeanCedric, Jonathan Tena, Milou & Emerging Ibiza DJs.
The Zoo Project returns for its seventh season of Saturday shenanigans on 7th June with The Zoo Project Opening Party Extravaganza. Made with love for the people, The Zoo Project continues its tradition of bringing like-minded souls together as one to create their own culture in the beautiful natural surroundings of the zoo. Dungeon Meat, Roy Davis Jr, Session Victim and Borrowed Identity all feature on the line-up.
The full line-up for Saturday 7th June is: Dungeon Meat, Roy Davis Jr, Session Victim (live), Borrowed Identity, Medlar, Evan Baggs, Pedestrian, Acid Mondays, Michael James, JeanCedric & Jonathan Tena.
Both opening parties kick off another exciting season of parties at the zoo for summer 2014. The Zoo Project will run every Saturday until 27th September while the promoters collaborate with some of their favourite brands and labels for a series of Channel Zoo events taking place on selected Wednesdays throughout July and August. Breakthrough artists will once again rub shoulders with some of electronic music’s true pioneers as the Zoo promoters stick to a tried and tested musical policy of giving up-and-coming talent the chance to play with established names.
