After 2017's sell-out, the organisers of Classic Ibiza have announced their partnership with Ministry of Sound for next year's event at Blickling Park.

On Friday, August 10 next year Classic Ibiza will ensure that one of Norfolk's best-known beauty spots will rival the White Island for party anthems when a live DJ and the Urban Soul Orchestra (USO) will bring some of the most iconic dance tracks from the last 20 years to life.

The music will start with a chilled set and the concert will move into full party mode in the second half with dance-floor classics, old and new.

Lisa Ward, of Classic Ibiza organisers, Revival Productions said: 'There is no stronger illustration of what we have created with Classic Ibiza, than the endorsement of Ministry of Sound.

'They continue to be the heartbeat for dance music lovers across the globe, spanning generations and genres. Last year, they came on board with a couple of our other Classic Ibiza dates and it's fantastic to now have their partnership across all venues. We look forward to developing a strong relationship with them to further enhance the experience of our audiences.'

'Now, in these amazing settings and with a full orchestra, our audiences, both experienced and contemporary, can enjoy the tracks in a completely new way.'

Stephen Hussey, founder and conductor of USO, said: 'The Classic Ibiza formula works so well because it's something new and different that appeals to so many people. Having Ministry of Sound on board turns the dial up to 11.'

Since announcing the 2018 date in late September, all early bird tickets and gazebos have gone and the concert is expected to sell-out in advance.

Tickets are available at £39.50; for full event details and tickets visit www.classicibiza.co.uk or call the event box-office on 01283 841601.
