"Over many years Sankeys has deployed Void Acoustics sound systems in our clubs through out the world. We've enjoyed a positive working relationship over the years. Void Acoustics are helping me make The Basement one of the best sounding rooms in the world"

David Vincent - Sankeys Owner

Sankeys first opened its doors in Manchester as Sankeys Soap in June of 1994. It was so-called Sankeys Soap due to its residence inside Beehive Mill, which was once a soap factory. Originally Andy Spiro and Rupert Campell transformed the basement of the factory into a club, but in 1998 Sankeys Soap closed its doors to the public.

In 2000 business partners David Vincent and Sacha Lord-Marchionne revived the club. This time the club was more successful than before, tackling the problems that had crippled its previous owners. Six years later in 2006 the club was forced to close once more, much to the dismay of clubbers. David Vincent announced that this time Sankeys Soap would be closed for good.

But later that summer it was announced that the club was to re-open under the shorter name Sankeys. It would be under the direction of David Vincent who invited Andy Spiro to get involved once again.

In 2010, Sankeys was voted the number one club in the world in a DJ Mag reader poll. Following the success of 2010, David Vincent announced plans to create Sankeys Ibiza.

In May 2011 Sankeys Ibiza opened in Playa d’en Bossa, Ibiza. The club consists of three unique rooms dedicated to all party revellers desires: The Basement, The LAB and Spektrum. The club accommodates raucous main room clubbing in The LAB to legendary underground parties in the Basement, through to the intimacy of Spektrum.

We started the sound system installations at Sankeys with The Basement, a room that seemed almost transplanted from the original Sankeys in Manchester. Air Motions and the original Stasys X low frequency enclosures were installed by Ibiza PA. Since the original installation Sankeys has evolved from strength to strength often selling out in minutes. Due to this the system was reconfigured and upgraded in 2015 to please the ever-increasing crowds in attendance. The original Stasys Xs have recently been upgraded to V2s installed in a bank of six below the DJ booth, high powered monitoring systems for the DJ booths, and last but not least, a full new compliment of the latest Bias amplifiers which has allowed us to use the latest FIR technology. The club boasts one of the best sounding systems on the island

"Working with the Void sound system was very easy. I've been very impressed with the whole team and they've been there to assist me every time I needed. The sound system has been the biggest surprise to me. I was not expecting the system so be to versatile" Lorenzo Meddi - Sankeys Technician 

Sankeys Ibiza has become a force to be reckoned with on the island, playing host to a strong base of residents with the likes of Steve Lawler, Manu Gonzalez, Amine Edge & DANCE, Roger Sanchez, Greg Vickers and East End Dubs gracing the decks each week.

This year welcomes new additions to the Seven Wonders of Sankeys Ibiza with the club hosting seven forward thinking and influential brands such as CUFF, Tribal Sessions, We Love, Redlight, Shelter, Magna Carta and VIVa Warriors.
