‘URBAN IN IBIZA’ set to represent the island as part of LNADJ’s historic event inside the British Houses of Parliament

 Urban in Ibiza co-curator, INKIE, confirms live paint at the event

(6th March 2013/FIX/Ibiza): 

As far as historical turning points go, URBAN IN IBIZA’s recent announcement really took the proverbial biscuit with their unveiling of their charity foundation meets art project ‘SMILE BRITANNIA’, due to be launched today, Wednesday, May 6th inside the U.K Houses of Commons, in conjunction with the ‘Last Night a DJ Saved My Life Foundation’.

The LNADJ event is one that organisers have been planning for quite some time, and which today, becomes a reality. As part of the initiative, Urban in Ibiza’s curator, INKIE, will do a live paint at the event, most definitely the first of its kind to take place in the hallowed halls of the House of Commons, in the U.K’s capital city, London.

Contemporary artist RYCA will also be in attendance with his iconic ‘Mega Smiley’ image. Both artists will be producing limited edition prints for all attendees, as well as large scale pieces for display.

Urban in Ibiza’s creator and partner in the Westbank Gallery London, Paul ‘Dizzi’ Saunders, who has played a key role in the realization of the project, said of today’s fundraiser, “It’s a joy to be involved in such a historic event. Seems like only yesterday we were marching on Parliament for the ‘Freedom to Dance’ movement. Twenty-five years later, I’m welcomed with open arms; walking in the front door with a 2m high Smiley and one of the biggest DJs in house music, all to promote a government backed charity. This year is set to be our biggest yet in so many ways. Sons of Warhol are coming! Onwards and upwards.”

But that’s just the half of it. Step up, Norman Cook, much better known as FatBoy Slim, for he is the main man set to make dance music history by being the first DJ ever to play inside the House of Commons. Backing him up, the world’s most adventurous cellist, Matthew Barley, & young visionary beat poet, Sonny Green. Bryce Fury, the winner of Westbank’s national DJ competition, House the House, will also be showing us what he’s made of in the music department.  Could this whole thing be any more exciting?!

The event is hosted by Mike Weatherley, MP. Former music executive Mike, also champions Rock the House & Film the House competitions.

This is one seriously cool, seriously urban and seriously historic happening.

One More Sleep til Market Time…


ELS DISSABTES AL MERCAT VELL PRESENTS: AIRES AÑEJOS

The sun is shining, the birds are singing and Spring is definitely in the Ibiza air – it can only mean one thing- it’s time for ‘Els Dissabtes al Mercat Vell’. For the third consecutive year under our charge, and in an initiative led by the Town Hall of Ibiza, we are simply delighted to let you know that this Saturday 25th Feb, from 11am-2pm in la Plaza del Mercat Vell de Vila, our favourite Saturday morning activity goes into full swing right there, in the middle of Ibiza’s World Heritage site.

This year, as well as our usual elements of live local music, kids activities, Es Juvert Artesania Market and the fruit, veg and flower market of the Mercat Vell itself, we’ve decided to bring Art into the equation with the added bonus of ‘El MercArt’.

Our plan is this- to turn La Plaza Sa Drassaneta into a space where our island artists can get together and show us their wares. From the famous to the emerging, we hope to bring you the best of what we’ve got in a World Heritage location like no other. Follow the arrows to the MercArt.. For our inauguration , Boke + Luchy show us what Action Painting is all about, get to the Plaza for 1pm!

ARTISTS CONFIRMED: *BOKE & LUCHY *BO WOODY WINTER *DIEGO PIKABEA *MARTA TORRASSA *JOLEEN EIDE-JOHANSEN *LA SKIMAL *LAIA DOMINGO..*AuFeGar… To participate, contact us here at FiX ibiza on 645909098

ELS DISSABTES AL MERCAT NOU PRESENTS: AIRES FRESCOS

But lets not forget about the New Market! For that particular shopping zone of Vila, we’re bringing along the students of Ibiza’s Music and Dance Conservatorio. Over the month of March, prick up your finely tuned ears and get ready to be enthralled by the Saxo Cuartet and the Conservatio Jazz Band, not to mention a little light Chamber Music (with Strings)…. Meanwhile, taking over the streets with their acrobatic ways, Acrobati-K doing their thing.

Music for shopping, music by future maestros.

The three events at the Mercat Nou also take place on Saturday mornings, from 11am-2pm.
