Defected Records Parties
Defected hold several residencies around the world: London, Warsaw, Hull and Switzerland. Through Ministry Of Sound, Defected will hold parties at Pacha in Ibiza Town in Ibiza this summer. Below is some information on the line-ups as well as club information. Hopefully, I'll get some pictures from some of the Defected parties this year.


This new, bi-monthly residency takes place at Bed in Sheffield. Seamus Haji is expected to appear regularly, alongside the residents.


On the first Saturday of every month, there are Defected nights at the Ministry Of Sound. The club is located at 103 Gaunt Street, London (tel: 0207 378 6528). The cost is 15, although the night runs from midnight to 9 a.m. The door policy is advertised as 21 years and over. However, Paul Farris - a Defected DJ - told me that is would be possible to get in if you're 18, providing that you respect the door staff, you meet the dress code and you have legitimate ID. Evidence of this can be taken from DJ Mag, who held a DJ competition to play at a Rulin' night. One winner was 20 years old, yet they let him in to spin.
