We said we’d kick things off with a bang and so we did! Our Opening Festival on June 17th gave our flagship Saturday events the sensational start they deserve delivering the full Zoo Project experience to Benimussa Park for the first time in 2017.
From the get-go the amphitheatre like Seal Pit, open for the first time this year, tempted the arriving crowds out of the pool and onto the dancefloor. Birmingham’s Portal DJs delivered 3 hours of jacking house getting the afternoon and the party off to a flying start with a great mix of cutting edge productions and balearic classics.
Down in the Tree House Zoo Project resident Lee Pennington made his 2017 debut with a little help from Pierre Codarin before handing over the ropes to Romania’s finest Funk E who delivered to his usual high standards. Funk E has been one of our favourite acts so far this summer and we can’t wait to welcome him back shortly. On closing duties in the Tree House was Fuse resident Seb Zito who took control and showed us exactly why he is one of the most in demand DJs on the island at the moment. Great music from start to finish with a few left of centre selections keeping the crowd on their toes until the end of the night.
Back up in the Seal Pit and our longest serving resident Defex played B2B with Federico Grazzini for the final two hours with perhaps the most energetic set of the session. A real standout performance from the two regulars putting the cherry on top of our Opening Festival cake.
Down in the Manadala Garden the full force of The Zoo Project performance and arts team could be seen it all it’s glory. DJ Salta Dois played on and off for the duration of the event adding the perfect highlights to the many performances and rituals which took place over the afternoon, evening and into the night with the Ibango Tribe Drum Circle closing out the arena in spectacular style.
