Classic Ibiza returned to Burghley House over the weekend, serving up a delicious taste of the fabled White Isle in the grounds of Stamford’s beautiful stately home.


The ESP team were among Classic Ibiza’s largest-ever Burghley audience of 8,000 and we can tell you it was even better than last year’s amazing event.



According to The Mirror we were joined by a famous face as Rebekah Vardy was reportedly lifting her spirits at the event partying with friends!

The incredible Urban Soul Orchestra (USO) entertained the capacity crowd with a rapturous four-hour journey of the very-best in Balearic-infused sounds. USO have worked alongside some of the greats in dance music, including Groove Armada, Robert Miles and Nightmares on Wax and you can see why.


Classic Ibiza’s Lisa Ward told ESP – “What a way to mark our return to Burghley House. Our performers and crew were on red-hot form, but we want to send a massive thank you to our amazing Burghley audience. They’re the ones that bring the Classic Ibiza vibe and the atmosphere on Saturday was electric!”

The show started at 6.30pm with a Chill-Out Set by DJ Jose Luis. Spinning a laid-back mix of Afro/Latin beats, the former Pacha Ibiza resident DJ got the crowd in the mood as they settled into the family-friendly atmosphere.


USO took to the stage at 8pm for the San Miguel Sundowner Set, reinventing iconic dance tracks, including Killer (Adamski), Sun Is Shining (Funkstar De Luxe vs. Bob Marley), For An Angel (Paul van Dyk) and Red Alert (Basement Jaxx).

Goldierocks took control of the decks at 9pm, with a House DJ Set of up-tempo house classics. Then, as night fell and Burghley’s grounds transformed into an alfresco nightclub, USO returned for the Dance Set.


Accompanied by an incredible laser and light show, the evening built to a crescendo to a host of stone-cold dance classics, including Galvanize (The Chemical Brothers), Waiting All Night (Rudimental), Push The Feeling On (Nightcrawlers), Toca’s Miracle (Fragma) and God Is A DJ (Faithless).

It was a diverse crowd of every age enjoying the night with Burghley’s parkland alive with glow sticks and a party atmosphere that was infectious with everyone up and dancing.


With the crowd chanting for more, USO finished the evening off with a high-octane encore of three Classic Ibiza favourites: Firestarter (The Prodigy), Set You Free (N-Trance) and Sandstorm (Darude). These were just a few of over 35 tracks performed by USO on the evening, including 15 completely new orchestrations.



All we can say is, don’t miss out next year when Classic Ibiza returns to Burghley House on Saturday July 29, 2023.
