Ferry Corsten returns to Ibiza for the Summer of 2014

At the forefront of the global electronic dance music scene for more than two decades, ‘Dutchie’ Ferry Corsten is forever sprinting ahead of the pack to deliver the next big thing in live production to his musically savvy fans. Fresh off a series of packed FULL ON (Hosted By Ferry Corsten) shows all over the world, Corsten is teaming up with Ibiza’s finest and most awarded club on the Balearic Island of Ibiza, Space Ibiza, for the summer 2014 season.
Space Ibiza is one of the major nightlife foundations on the island and numerous superstar DJs and artists have performed in the venue over the years. During the Miami Music Week, the club won another prestigious International Dance Music Award (IDMA) for ‘Best Global Club’. We can’t think of a better way to start the summer club season of 2014!
After the success of  FULL ON’s Ibiza shows at Eden in 2013, FULL ON IBIZA promises 15 weekly Friday shows throughout the summer beginning June 20th.

The line up for each show will feature eclectic sets by Corsten’s hand-picked DJ friends, including Cosmic Gate, Aly & Fila, Gareth Emery, Audien, Bassjackers, Markus Schulz, Jacob van Hage, Rusko, John O’Callaghan and many others. Club goers are sure to find each show an experience worthy of the legendary island’s history.

Ferry Corsten says: “I'm so excited for my concept FULL ON  to have a residency at one of the most prestigious clubs on the island of Ibiza. The line up is looking stellar and we can't wait for FULL ON to take off"

FULL ON IBIZA is not your typical club event. The extravagant show features unique back-to-back sets between Ferry Corsten and his carefully chosen guest DJs. The FULL ON show provides an immersive experience through its unique blend of house, trance and electro. Launched in 2007 at Ahoy in Rotterdam, FULL ON is the brainchild of Ferry Corsten. Since the show’s inception, it has toured worldwide and played in numerous sold-out venues hosting DJs including, Sander van Doorn, Showtek, Dimitri Vegas & Like Mike, Fedde Le Grand, Mat Zo, Michael Woods and many others.

Over 35.000 Euros raised for #DonateAndDance!

The benefit show #DonateAndDance has received on behalf of GIRO 555 a total amount 35.798,- Euros! This is from the monies received from ticket sales, drinks, and private donations. This amount does not include donations received through the UPC Nederland broadcast which is coursed directly to GIRO 555 and donations received by other Philippine and international non-profit organisations due to the live and post broadcast found on the website http://www.donateanddance.com.

The support from the DJs who've played and the many who didn't but still supported us around the world, booking/management agencies, production companies, dance organisations, media and of course many volunteers has been fantastic. And of course all the fans and listener's worldwide!

It is heartwarming to see how people in the dance industry can come together… from DJs who've played and the many who didn't but still supported us around the world, booking / management agencies, production companies, dance organisations, media, and of course many volunteers  and help in many different ways for a good cause. In such a short amount of time and through the generosity of organizations we've also been able to broadcast the event both on audio and video in the telegraaf, numerous broadcast stations worldwide, and of course our website http://www.donateanddance.com. Through their generosity our cause has reached a global audience. Donations from these broadcasts are directed to a number of non-profit organisations. The list of non profit organisations can be found on our website. We are not able to see how much is currently being earned through this, seeing this was also set up in a couple of days. But we hope the broadcast and website will help non-profit organizations receive more donations.

What has started as a Dutch dance benefit project at Club Panama Amsterdam in Holland to create awareness and encourage people to donate to victims in the Philippines via the benefit, directly to GIRO 555, and / or in their own special way became last night a global initiative.

"There is a land of the living and a land of the dead and the bridge is love, the only survival, the only meaning."
~Thornton Wilder

“On behalf of all the Filipinos around the globe, we love all of you and your efforts to help the victims of typhoon Hayian. Together we make a difference. Thank you for helping them rebuild their lives. Maraming Salamat Po.” Lia and Ferry Corsten.

Dutch DJs call on Clubbers to support the victims of Typhoon Haiyan (Yolanda)

DJs Ferry Corsten, Quintino, Blasterjaxx, Dennis Ruyer, Jacob van Hage, Marco V, Sandro Silva, Sied van Riel, Oliver Twizt will be playing to raise funds for the victims from the superstorm in the Philippines.

The Philippines has been greatly affected by the super storm and is in great need of clean water, shelter, food, and medical care. A benefit show on Wednesday November 20 has been set up in the club Panama in Amsterdam in order to raise funds. The proceeds of the event will be donated to the Dutch calamity fund GIRO 555. This account has been set up to receive funds from Dutch Nationals who wish to donate.

Ferry Corsten, the DJ who initiated this event has a close relationship to the Philippines: “It breaks my heart to see what has happened in the Philippines. My wife is Filipino, our daughter is half Filipino, and of course we have many family and friends who live there, who have been directly affected by the typhoon. Hundreds of thousands have lost everything and are in urgent need for help. This is why the benefit ‘Donate and Dance has been set up. We are so happy that so many DJs have reacted positively for this event and been able to set this up in a few days. Unfortunately, some DJs were out of the country so that they cannot be there for the evening, but many will be supporting our cause via their social media. We’ve already received financial donations for this cause. We have an amazing line up such as Quintino, Blasterjaxx, Dennis Ruyer, Jacob van Hage, Marco V, Sandro Silva, Sied van Riel, Oliver Twizt, and myself that will be playing on the evening. It is our hope that through this event we can influence others to show their support for the victims in their own way. ”

DJs for the Philippines #DonateAndDance is an event where top DJs from The Netherlands will be playing to help raise funds for GIRO 555. This initiative is meant to promote awareness and push people to donate for the victims of Typhoon Haiyan either through this event, directly through GIRO 555 or their desired non-profit organization, and/or in their own special way.
