Just 4 years ago, 2 brothers decided they would recreate the vibes of London’s hottest raves and secret parties, 30 minutes north of the capital, in Luton. Since then, Taste The Punch has become one of the country’s best underground dance events, welcoming such luminaries as Pete TongB TraitsClaptoneAnnie MacAmine Edge & DANCEMark KnightDarius Syrossian and many more to ‘the punchbowl’ turntables. Last year saw Taste The Punch hit new heights as they hosted a stage at Eastern Electrics Festival. The unstoppable upward trajectory continues with their first Ibiza residency, where Taste The Punch will expand their horizons again, booking a wider range of must-see acts for the very first time.

Taste The Punch co-promoter, Dean Shields comments, “When this opportunity came along we didn’t have to think twice about throwing our heart, soul, blood, sweat and tears into being a part of Eden for summer 2017. The island is changing, and we know that this summer, Eden is returning to its rightful prestigious place at the core of Ibiza’s nightlife, bringing in the right brands that can deliver high quality lineups. We’re bringing something fresh to Ibiza and our ethos is simple; we want to offer an incredible experience to anyone and everyone that comes to Taste The Punch.”

Faithless need little introduction, selling over 15 million records worldwide, giving electronic music some of its finest moments with tracks like ‘Insomnia’‘God Is A DJ’ and ‘We Come 1’. Over 20 years they’ve delivered consistently, whether on stage or behind the decks with Sister Bliss, and are a fitting name to kick off Taste The Punch’s Ibiza announcement. Expect 3 massive sets at Eden this season.

Mark Knight remains one of house music’s most influential names (his Toolroom Radio show now reaches over 13.5 million people in over 60 countries). The Toolroom Records boss is one of the scene’s most accomplished producers and his innate ability to rock any dancefloor has seen him become a firm favourite of the Taste The Punch crowds. Mark Knight behind the turntables at Eden is a guaranteed Ibiza classic.

Another Toolroom and Taste The Punch regular, Weiss also joins the Eden lineup. Expect quality, jackin’ beats and rumbling basslines to shake the island as Weiss shows why he’s one of the biggest new names out there, with support from the likes of Pete TongClaptoneGorgon CityClaude Von StrokeHot Since 82 and more.

Taste The Punch continues to mix up the massive names with the rising stars as they bring Lee Walker to the white isle. His massive rework of DJ Deeon ‘Freak Like Me’ remains a true house anthem. Liverpool’s Lauren Lo Sung also lines up; a proven new talent at Carl Cox’s Revolution party at Space IbizaThe Warehouse ProjectSankeys IbizaBedrock and more. Icarus is the name on everyone’s lips right now. The Bristolian duo recently scored the ‘hottest record in the world’ on Radio 1 with their stunning edit of Arle ‘Close To You’ and again with their original track ‘King Kong’. George Kwali also joins the lineup with his Kideko collab ‘Crank It’ still ranking as one of biggest house tunes around.
