Ingoldmells set to host Ibiza-style beach party

AN IBIZA style beach party looks set to draw thousands of dance music fans to Ingoldmells for two days of top class DJs, MCs and Balearic themed fun this weekend.

Joe’s Beach Bar is hosting the Monster Ibiza Beach Party Weekender and has offered Standard readers the chance to win four pairs of VIP tickets with a free evening meal and a chance to meet the headline act - Ian Redman from Ultrabeat.

Winners will be able to enjoy three days of partying on the beach, dozens of renowned DJs from the world of dance music, beat-boxing champions and spectacular entertainment featuring fire-breathers and stilt walkers.

Event organiser Simon Adderley hopes the event will mark Ingoldmells on the map as a resort capable of hosting exciting and vibrant events throughout the season.

He said: “If you bring thousands of people to the coast, Ingoldmells will benefit and more importantly it will raise the resort’s profile, which at the moment is pathetically low.

“I’m trying to do something that will stimulate visitors to the coast and make them realise what an amazing resort Ingoldmells is.

“It is perfectly equipped to be an exciting and vibrant resort.”

The main event kicks off at 11am on Saturday and will run through to 3am before Sunday’s chill-out session featuring a more down-beat musical collection.

There will also be a warm-up party on the Friday night and ticket-holders will also be invited to camp on the beach over night.

The vast scale of an event intended to draw almost 5,000 visitors to Ingoldmells for loud music and late night partying has provoked the concern of Ingoldmells Community Group, which fears it could be disturbing to the village residents and holidaymakers visiting neighbouring caravan sites.

The group’s chairman Maurice Darnell has also stressed the importance of adhering to health and safety regulations at events such as these.

Mr Adderley has been working with East Lindsey Event Safety Advisory Group to ensure those concerns are addressed and feels he has now ‘ticked all the right boxes’.

Inspector Terry Ball who has been assisting Mr Adderley to ensure the event is managed safely, said: “Mr Adderley has been actively engaging with the group and wants this event to be safe, exciting, innovative and enjoyable with as little detrimental impact to the wider community as possible.

“To this end we support this aspiration but hold the right to challenge any area that we see does not conform to either safety or of crime and disorder legislation.”

Tickets for the event cost £20 for the full weekend with camping or £10 for Saturday’s event. You can also buy a family of four day ticket for £20. Visit www.theticketsellers.co.uk or go to Joe’s Beach Bar to buy tickets.
