This eye and ear for talent is sure to bring a wealth of skilled selectors to Hï Ibiza, as Black Coffee curates an impeccable line-up of underground acts for his 18 week residency.
“Since the start of my career, i’ve been driven by the desire to share my taste in music and expose the world to the beauty of South African dance music… I believe that Hï Ibiza is the perfect place to do that. I regard Ibiza as the capital of the dance music world and I’m truly honoured to be part of the continuing legacy of the island.” – Black Coffee
