BRUNO FROM IBIZA is undoubtedly an integral part of Ibiza's musical heritage.

He also plays in the main clubs of IBIZA since 1996.
BRUNO FROM IBIZA is also busy on the radio, hosting weekly sessions at IBIZA SONICA RADIO, RADIO FG and IBIZA LIVE RADIO.
During the winter season, BRUNO is touring around the world to play in clubs, beach bars or private parties.
Neon, real name Stijn D'hont,was born in Destelbergen, near gent in 1985.
Destelbergen was known for the "Boccaccio Life", the famous new beat temple in belgium.
Living that close to this extraordinary club changed his way of living: it's the music that counts.
In 1995 ,at the age of 10, he started buying vinyl. In those days phiphi, yves deruyter & marko were his big influences...
After organizing his own parties, Mike Thompson offered him a dj set @ the legendary Cherry Moon in lokeren. His first clubgig at the age of 15!
Meantime, Neon was also doing his thing on the radio. He had his own show broadcasting every night on C-dance gent.
His radio appearance influenced his dj-career: he got the opportunity to start playing at his favourite club: the former Boccaccio that was called The Temple at the time. In 2003 he became one of the warm up deejays.
One year later, he left C-dance for the biggest dance radio in flanders: Topradio. Starting with a weekly dj-set, Neon soon got his own daily spot on national radio hosting his own radioshow called "The Nightclub".later that year he started his show update. This show is still on air everyday from 8am giving you an "update" on the hottest new music.
In 2005 Neon started his professional carreer as he started working at the Musicman recordstore in gent and became resident at The Temple on saturdays playing house,groove and progressive.
Even TV wasn't safe anymore: every week he presented the "Release of the Week" on jimtv's,"Going Out" show.
Since januari 2007,thanks to his friend and colleague Joeri, he has been resident on sundaynights at the number one club in belgium: La Rocca, Lier,
2008 & 2009 are the years where Neon takes it one step beyond: Together with his friend and colleague Maxim Lany he took over the mainroom of Culture Club where he is still playing today on Thursday & Saturday nights.
In 2009 Neon also was the closingact on the Laundry Day Mainstage playing after Tiesto.
This set made the StuBru listeners vote Neon as fifth most popular dj in Belgium of 2010.
Neon's international career is also exploding! Playing on a regular basis in South-Korea, Tel-Aviv, Miami,... and playing every edition of the Tomorrowland festival, Neon made it on the line up of the first edition of TomorrowWorld Atlanta!
Nowadays Neon is also know as one of the Ghent Bangers: Teaming up with Davidov they make sure no club, festival or bar mitswa is safe anymore: Complete anarchy & mayhem on the dancefloor!
At this moment Neon is still making his way into the belgian nightlife and beyond: His story isn't over yet,that's 4 sure...
