WORLD-FAMOUS DJ, broadcaster and presenter Pete Tong is swapping hot golden sands for the cool green grasses of Powderham Castle, because he feels our Brit soil is better to dance on than sand.

As the pioneering icon of house music brings his Ibiza Classics show to Teignbridge this summer alongside Jules Buckley and the Essential Orchestra, Tong, said that the green green grass of home is the ideal dance

floor for this spectacular show.

‘Hot sand between the toes is great, but when you’re dancing, those Ibizan beaches take their toll. That’s why

I’ve hand-picked some of the UK’s best green-spaces for my Ibiza Classics outdoor shows this year, with Exeter’s Powderham Castle being a perfect spot.

‘Solid turf and cool green grass give a great underfoot surface, so audiences can kick off their shoes and dance to their heart’s content.

‘The sheer depth and dimension that Jules’ orchestra brings to the iconic house classics that I play, mean that audiences need the best possible environment to dance in. And you can’t get better than the beautiful parks of our homeland. I can’t wait to see those shoes being kicked off as we allow people to go-green and Powderham Castle.’

Pete Tong, brings his globally acclaimed Ibiza Classics show to Powderham on bank holiday Monday, August 28. Featuring the 65-piece The Essential Orchestra, which is produced, arranged & conducted by Jules Buckley, (alongside a host of guest DJs and singers), the evening will bring the worlds of classical and club together, with stunningly reimagined versions of classic house tracks including ‘Rhythm Is A Dancer’, ‘Café Del Mar’, ‘Insomnia’, ‘You Got The Love’, ‘Free’ and many more.

For one special evening, the tranquillity of Powderham Castle, will undergo a midsummer Ibizan takeover, as the pioneer of global- change in house music, rediscovers those banging underground classics, with an embellished orchestra.
