Over 5,000 votes cast in annual Classic Ibiza track-poll

With Classic Ibiza at Burghley House near Stamford on Saturday 29 July rapidly approaching, over Easter the show’s 40,000 social media followers had the opportunity to vote for the tracks they most wanted to hear performed live by the 32-piece Urban Soul Orchestra (USO).

The five most popular tracks will be added to an orchestral set of over 30 house classics this summer, including 10 other new orchestrations and some firm Classic Ibiza favourites. USO, who headline the show, have worked alongside dance music greats, including Groove Armada, Robert Miles and Nightmares on Wax.

With over 5,000 votes now counted, the five winning tracks, which were selected from a shortlist of 10, are: Silence (Delerium, Tiësto, Sarah McLachlan), King of My Castle (Wamdue Project, Roy Malone), Gonna Make You Sweat (Everybody Dance Now) (C & C Music Factory), On a Ragga Tip (SL2) and Need You (100%) (Duke Dumont, A*M*E).

Classic Ibiza’s Lisa Ward says: “We’ve all been to concerts before hoping to hear our favourite track, only to leave slightly disappointed when it’s not played. Our annual track poll, which is always hugely popular, gives our incredible Burghley House audience the opportunity to do something about that. All I can say is that it’s a good thing they’ve got taste!”

Gates open at Burghley House at 5.30pm, with the show starting with a Chill-Out DJ Set. Former Pacha Ibiza resident, DJ Jose Luis then takes control of the decks for his Latin House Set, which includes a live jamming session with members of USO. Next up, USO and DJ Goldierocks take centre stage for the Sundowner set, followed by Goldierocks’ Deep House DJ Set. The show then reaches a rapturous crescendo at 11pm, following USO’s return to the stage for the Dance Set, accompanied by an amazing laser & light show.

Lisa Ward adds: “We’re blessed with a loyal audience who love to come to Classic Ibiza every year. Our challenge is to make sure we always serve up something fresh and exciting to keep them coming back. The tracks we play are obviously a major part of that. Having already heard some of the new orchestrations, I know our Burghley House audience are going to love what we have in store for them this summer. We’ve also once again upped the ante on the show’s visuals – it’s going to be awesome.”
