Taste The Punch, the fast-rising UK party promoters from Luton, have announced that Dutch superstar DJ,Laidback Luke, will headline two dates for Taste The Punch Ibiza at Eden, and will perform two exclusive, underground techno sets.

Advance tickets can be purchased at www.tastethepunch.com/ibizastarting from just €25.
Laidback Luke is one of the most recognised names in dance music and remains at the forefront of the global EDM explosion. He turned heads at the end of last year by dropping a techno set in New York, going on to remind people that he started out as a techno DJ, and was even resident at the legendary Awakenings parties. Laidback Luke has never lost his love for techno and so has decided once again to treat a select few to a rare techno set, exclusively with Taste The Punch at Eden.
Luke explains what to expect from his exceptional journeys back into techno, “I’m bringing it back to my 90’s roots, keeping it abstract and underground, bringing you the sound from when I first started out as a techno DJ. This was the sound I was playing when I first set foot in Ibiza.”
Taste The Punch has become one of the country’s best underground dance events, welcoming such luminaries as Pete Tong, B Traits, Claptone, Annie Mac, Amine Edge & DANCE, Mark Knight, Darius Syrossian and many more to ‘the punchbowl’ turntables. Laidback Luke spinning techno exclusively for the Taste The Punch crowds sums up the attitude and excitement that this young brand will be bringing to the world’s clubbing capital over a 16 week residency at Eden this summer.
Taste The Punch co-promoter, Dean Shields comments, “This is exactly why we decided to take on Ibiza this summer. All the hard work will be worth it just to see Laidback Luke step behind the decks at Eden, our ‘Ibiza punchbowl’, and start dropping his favourite techno, exclusively for the Taste The Punch crowds. These headline techno sets will be some of those Ibiza moments that get talked about for years to come.”
Laidback Luke joins a list of quality artists already announced for Taste The Punch Ibiza every Friday at Eden from 16th June, including Faithless (DJ set), Mark Knight, Tough Love, Monki, Weiss, Icarus, Lee Walker, Marshall Jefferson, Lauren Lo Sung and George Kwali.
