Thousands greeted the 32-piece Urban Soul Orchestra for a journey of Balearic-infused house music on Saturday, June 29.

Musicians performed 16 new orchestrations in a set of more than 40 dance classics. One concert goer said: “Absolutely amazing night, we loved every minute from start to finish.”

Thousands of people came despite the less than perfect weather.

Classic Ibiza’s Lisa Ward said: “What a way to kick-off our summer 2024 tour. Huge kudos to our incredible performers and crew for such an amazing show.

“A massive thank you also goes to our awesome Cheshire audience who turned out despite the weather. Classic Ibiza at Tatton Park is proud to support Francis House Children’s Hospice.”

The concert began with a chill-out DJ set, as the crowd settled into the show’s family-friendly atmosphere over their picnics.

Staff and volunteers from Francis House were on hand to add to the party mood selling raffle tickets and a variety of party wear, flashing headbands, funky glasses, glow sticks and colourful lei garlands.

Kate Puć, Fundraising Officer of Francis House said: ‘We were absolutely delighted to be the charity chosen once again by Revival Productions to support for a second year running. It was great to be able to host a stall in the grounds of the concert and sell lots of festival goodies.

“Although the weather was pretty miserable it did not dampen the enthusiasm of the crowd for buying our merchandise. It was a really fun night, the music was great, and we were extremely happy to have raised more than £2,500 thanks to the generosity of the crowd. The money raised means we can continue to be a lifeline to local children and families who are facing the toughest of challenges.”

Former Pacha Ibiza resident, DJ Jose Luis took to the decks for an Afro/Latin House Set, which included a live jamming session with members of USO. Next up, USO and DJ Goldierocks took centre stage for the San Miguel Sundowner Set, reinventing a selection of iconic dance tracks.

An incredible laser light show accompanied the Dance Set with the concert drawing to a close following an encore of Classic Ibiza crowd favourites.
