The outdoor dance event, for which this newspaper is a media partner, will see Balearic beats return to the north Norfolk beauty spot on Friday, August 9, 2019.

Lisa Ward, director of organisers Revival Productions, said there had already been strong interest in next year’s show following the popularity of the 2018 Classic Ibiza.

She said: “We’ve been overwhelmed by enquiries about next year’s concert following the resounding success of another sell-out event at Blickling this summer.

“It was fantastic to see so many family groups in the audience. We have got some really exciting plans for next year, which will take Classic Ibiza to another level, so watch this space.”

The concert will feature Urban Soul Orchestra, DJ Goldierocks and a host of live vocalists performing some of dance music’s most iconic tracks.

The event starts with a chill-out set where people can enjoy picnics and drinks or dance along as the sun fades. The concert then turns into an outdoor celebration with accompanying lasers.

Stephen Hussey, conductor and founder of The Urban Soul Orchestra, said: “Going by the reaction of the Blickling crowd in the summer, we clearly hit the spot with the set-list, but I’m already busy delving into dance music’s rich archive of classic tracks to add some truly stonking tunes to next year’s programme. We’ve got a few other surprises up our sleeve too, which I can’t wait to share. See you next summer, Blickling.”

Classic Ibiza’s Facebook followers will once again be given the opportunity to vote for their favourite tracks to be added to next year’s set-list.
