Next Friday (16th April) we will host a special Ibiza edition of our Twitch live stream series PRESS.PLAY, in aid of the Ibiza Food Bank.
With our long history on the island, having hosted Ibiza events for over two decades, we decided to leverage our live stream capabilities to raise funds for this vital cause, after seeing how much the organisation is struggling at the moment. The Ibiza Food Bank has been a lifeline for families living on the island, many of whose livelihoods have been impacted by the pandemic, therefore this special edition of PRESS.PLAY hopes to also raise awareness for this vital service.
Enlisting the help of DJs based in Ibiza such as Jason Bye, Andy Baxter, Manu Gonzales and Melon Bomb, these artists will play their sets from iconic Ibiza venues that have laid empty for the last twelve months. With Manu streaming from a picturesque Ibiza location with views of the Dalt Villa, Melon Bomb will play their set from The Wild Corner at Hï Ibiza (the world’s most exciting club toilets), and finally Jason Bye and Andy Baxter will offer viewers an exclusive preview of Eden’s revamped main room during their b2b set. Other DJs joining the special edition of PRESS.PLAY from around the world include Danny Rampling from our London HQ, David Penn from Malaga and Roger Sanchez from Miami.
PRESS.PLAY: IBIZA EDITION
FRIDAY 16TH APRIL 12PM – 8PM (GMT)

During the stream, viewers will be prompted to donate to Ibiza Food Bank. The Ibiza Food Bank’s mission is to create a community of volunteers across the island who will collect food, coordinate donations, volunteer on local farms, man collection points or work in the food bank itself. The food Ibiza Food Bank volunteers collect will be prepared and donated to their charity partners - IbizaPreservation, Ibiza Produce, The Red Cross, Caritas and Doctors of the World. By supporting the farmers, they can continue planting crops and donating a proportion to The Ibiza Food bank, which will ensure people in need receive fresh healthy balanced food.
With over two million of you having already tuned in to our previous editions of PRESS.PLAY, a live stream series exclusively for Twitch that was developed on the premise of being a genre non-conforming space for DJs to flex their musical muscles, PRESS.PLAY has predominantly been streamed from our new London HQ so far. This special edition will allow us to remember good times on the island at our two of favourite clubs, we hope you'll join us.
PRESS.PLAY Ibiza Edition will be streamed via Defected’s Twitch channel from 12pm GMT on Friday 16th April twitch.tv/defectedrecords or donate via the GoFundMe page.
