Classic Ibiza concert to raise money for Isabel Hospice
Classic Ibiza at Hatfield House in August will support East Herts charity Isabel Hospice.
The show, on Saturday August 21, promises a set of over 30 house classics, including 12 completely new orchestrations.
The concert begins with a new chill-out DJ set performed by former Pacha Ibiza resident Jose Luis.
The Urban Soul Orchestra and vocalists then take to the stage with Goldierocks for the Sundowner set, with tracks from Orbital, Paul van Dyk, Adamski and many more.
The rhythm builds further during Goldierocks' House DJ set, packed full of stone-cold dance anthems, before reaching a crescendo during the Dance set, when the orchestra and vocalists return to the stage as night falls and the grounds of Hatfield House turn into an al fresco nightclub with accompanying lasers.
Music fans can expect tracks from the likes of The Prodigy and The Shapeshifters to Faithless and Underworld.
Lisa Ward, organiser of Classic Ibiza, said: "Isabel Hospice does truly amazing work supporting patients and their families living with life-limiting illnesses in Hertfordshire. Classic Ibiza is all about a sense of community, so it feels right to be doing what we can to help support this extremely worthy cause."
There will be various fund- and profile-raising initiatives on the evening, including a £1 donation from every set-list lanyard sold.
Isabel Hospice provides free end-of-life care and support for patients and their families living with cancer and other illnesses, such as motor neurone disease and end-stage renal, heart and respiratory conditions.
It serves a population of around 393,000 people and last year cared for 1,694 patients, family members and carers.
Adam Brockett, the charity's head of community and events, said: "We need to raise £7.2 million a year to keep our hospice running and events like this will help enormously towards that goal.
"Our in-patient unit is a safe haven for people as they reach the end of their lives, but the hospice is so much more than a building. We care for the majority of patients in their own home and across eastern Hertfordshire in the 'Living Well with Isabel' hubs, where activities include feelgood singing, art and gardening sessions to promote wellbeing and independence for people living with a life-limiting condition.
"We'd like to thank Classic Ibiza for supporting us at what promises to be a brilliant event."
Although Classic Ibiza had sold out, a limited batch of extra tickets has been released for the show. Gates open at 5.30pm and the music begins at 6pm. For tickets and more details see www.classicibiza.co.uk/hatfield.
