Superyachts, Supercars and Powerboats – Ibiza Gears Up for Summer of Excess

March 31st, 2014 3:11 pm Posted by: admin in ibiza | Comments (0)

With the Gumball 3000 Rally, Class 1 World Powerboat Championship and an eight million euro overhaul of the Port of Ibiza planned for summer 2014, Ibiza is in for a spell under the luxury spotlight.

First to cruise into town is Gumball 3000’s 16th annual car rally.  Starting in Miami on 4 June and concluding one week later in Ibiza on 11 June, the adrenalin-fuelled road trip will cross five countries in two continents enjoying parties, concerts and VIP hospitality along the way.  Created by ex-racing driver, designer and entrepreneur, Maximillion Cooper, the Gumball 3000 now attracts live crowds of over a million people.  Previous petrol head participants have included Dannii Minogue, Jodie Kidd, Danny Dyer, Rachel Hunter, Caprice and Jamiroquai’s Jay Kay.  Ibiza is an obvious choice for the perfect hedonistic closing party.

Next up is a switch from the open road to the high seas and the Class 1 World Powerboat Championship which was established back in 1964.  Ibiza is a new and exciting venue for this sport, joining Bulgaria, Italy and the UAE for the 2014 season, and will host its three-day Grand Prix weekend from 5 to 7 September.  Regarded as the pinnacle of international offshore powerboat racing, a premium sporting brand to match its Moto GP and Formula 1 cousins, the twin-engined raceboats of Class 1 can reach speeds in excess of 250km/h and the ‘travelling circus’ will certainly make its presence felt when it comes into town towards the end of the summer.

Just one week after the powerboats leave the island, work will begin on the Port of Ibiza’s eight million euro facelift.  The project will demolish the old disused ferry terminal and in its place create a large 5,000m² public square, a 400m² building housing storage, changing rooms, offices, a tourist office and public bathrooms, plus a 200m² street-level terrace.  Road traffic and parking spaces will be restricted to the essential minimum and a cycle path will connect the Port to the City.  Work will commence on 15 September and finish in May 2015, ready for the next summer season.  Chairman of the Balearic Port Authority, Alberto Pons, said that once the upgrade was complete, this superyacht haven would be amongst “the best in the Mediterranean, if not the best”.

2nd set of bands announced for Ibiza Rocks 2014

February 25th, 2014 2:02 am Posted by: admin in ibiza rocks | Comments (0)

The second set of bands have been announced for this years 16 week season of gigs at Ibiza Rocks.

Supporting HAIM at the opening party on the 4th June will be Breton:

The second week also sees a great lineup with our faves Wolf Alice supporting The 1975:

One of highlights from last year Bastille are back at Ibiza Rocks on the 7th August.

Returning acts Tinie Tempah on 2nd July, Ed Sheeran on 23rd July, Rudimental on 39th July and Clean Bandit return to headline on 27th August and closing party on 17th September will be previous headliners Bombay Bicycle Club. Making their debuts on 18th June are John Newman with support from Chloe Howl.

Shane Murray, Promoter said:

It’s a really strong line up this year so far, we’re genuinely excited. Bands like Haim, The 1975 and Bombay Bicycle Club represent the heart of what we do so opening and closing weeks will as ever be special. Since last headlining, Ed Sheeran has emerged as an international superstar so it’s a real coup that he’s chosen Rocks as one of only a handful of shows this summer. We’ve been trying to get Skrillex for a long time so that’s going to be a huge Mallorca show, as will the Bastille gigs after last year’s debut sell outs.

We always work hard to recognise genuine talent early on and we’re proud to be bringing back Rudimental, John Newman and Clean Bandit as headliners and bringing new acts like Wolf Alice and Chloe Howl for debut slots.  With loads more still to be announced, it’s safe to say we’re in for another amazing summer under the Balearic stars.

W.A.R! 2014 at Ibiza Rocks first announcements

January 28th, 2014 9:00 pm Posted by: admin in ibiza rocks | Comments (0)

warThe first artists for this years 16 week season of We Are Rockstars! at Ibiza Rocks Hotel have been announced.

6 MASSIVE SHOWS FROM EXAMPLE & DJ WIRE AND
4 HEADLINE SHOWS FROM ZANE LOWE INCLUDING THE OPENING PARTIES
WITH GORGON CITY & JAVEON

PLUS REDLIGHT, DJ EZ, MS DYNAMITE

Zane will play multiple shows throughout the summer and joining the UK’s master of new music for an Opening Party to remember will be rising stars and Rocks favourites Gorgon City.

Joining the opening party line up is another of the UK’s premier rising talents Javeon. Fusing R&B, dance and pop styles in his own tracks including debut single ‘Give it Up’ and collaborating with the likes of MNEK and Julio Bashmore, big things lie ahead for Javeon.

Week two will see DJ, remixer and producer extraordinaire Redlight take to the poolside stage. Counting the likes of Skream, Toddla T, Jack Beats, Goldie, Carl Cox, Pete Tong and Annie Mac among his fans, Redlight has mastered the very fine art of crossing over into the mainstream with huge hits including ‘Lost in Your Love’ and ‘Get Out My Head’ whilst retaining his roots and credibility within the underground electronic scene, hosting his own show on Rinse FM and releasing vinyl-only, rhythm-driven dance music by himself and close contemporaries on his own label Lobster Boy.

warJoining Redlight for these massive shows is a true legend of the UK dance music scene, DJ EZ.  From his huge ‘Pure Garage’ compilations to his pioneering show on Kiss FM (just celebrating its 14th anniversary) DJ EZ is a true trailblazer of an original UK sound.  His knock out set for Boiler Room in 2012 was a seminal moment in Garage music history and reaffirmed his achievements of the past as well as confirming the sounds relevance in the current UK dance music scene.

Back in Ibiza by popular demand is another original talent, the UK’s very own Ms Dynamite. Following a stunning set at W.A.R! last year and a new EP featuring her infectious Drum & Bass and reggae fused track with Shy FX ‘Cloud 9’, Ms Dynamite has gone back to her roots and is paving the way for a new era of retro-futuristic reggae. Fans can expect fresh material as well as all the huge hits that made Ms Dynamite one of the most influential, successful and award winning British solo artists of the last decade.

Having provided many of the standout moments of the summer during their residency at the Rocks Hotels last year, W.A.R! will proudly welcome back Example & DJ Wire for six incredible high-energy shows across the islands. As a long-standing friend and performer of Rocks, Example was key in launching W.A.R! in 2012 and his shows with DJ Wire have since upped the energy and the ante, making the Rocks stage a home from home under the sweet Balearic stars.

W.A.R! – EVERY FRIDAY AT IBIZA ROCKS HOTEL – CONFIRMED SO FAR:

06/06 – OPENING PARTY WITH ZANE LOWE | GORGON CITY | JAVEON
13/06 – REDLIGHT | DJ EZ | MS.DYNAMITE
27/06 – EXAMPLE & DJ WIRE
25/07 – EXAMPLE & DJ WIRE
15/08 – ZANE LOWE
22/08 – EXAMPLE & DJ WIRE

Ibiza International Music Summit 2014 moves to new Hard Rock Hotel

January 23rd, 2014 10:39 pm Posted by: admin in ibiza, ims | Comments (0)

IMS at Atzaro 2008It’s been quite a journey from those early days of the IMS back in 2008 when it was held at Atzaro in the North. In the meantime it’s gone through a couple of venue changes, Palladium in Santa Eulalia and the past few years at the Gran Hotel in Ibiza Town.

This year they are moving base to the new Hard Rock Hotel which opens May 18th 2014 in Playa den Bossa, next to Ushuaia Towers.

It may seem a surprising move given the name of the new hotel but with the background alliance between  Ushuaia, Hard Rock Hotel and the Palladium Hotel group it shouldnt actually be that surprising – indeed it makes absolutely complete sense to have a music conference in what is billed to be a “music hotel”.

International Music Summit, one of the world’s most important and influential music industry gatherings, is moving to a new home for its seventh annual conference and taking electronic music delegates and industry executives to Ibiza’s hotly anticipated newcomer, the Hard Rock Hotel Ibiza.

hard rock hotel ibiza

hard rock hotel ibizaThe summit, which has earned a reputation as ‘the TED of music conferences’, will bring together the genre’s most important and influential decision makers. Leading thinkers, futurists, trailblazers, artists, global brands and technology pioneers will debate, announce and explain new initiatives and strategies.

Alongside the deep thinking seminars, the most creative minds in music will unveil new music, strategies, apps and even create the summit’s own anthem while some of the newest breakthrough artists will be showcased. The event will also host the IMS Legends Dinner, in honour of a leading artist who has shaped the genre continually.

 

IMS partner Ben Turner states:

hard rock hotel ibizaIMS was created so people can debate and be inspired about the future of a technology-driven genre of music, so inevitably our host venue needs to move with the times also.

This is a major opportunity for us to create a new home as we expand with the genre and with the ambitions of our delegates. We are impressed with the work of the Hard Rock group and feel we are in good hands. The irony of the history and name of the hotel is not lost on us – this is a true reflection of how our music is seeping into mainstream culture worldwide and continuing to break down barriers of entry.

Corporate Director of sales and marketing at Palladium Hotel Group, behind Hard Rock Hotel, Juan Jose Calvo says:

We are delighted that the International Music Summit Ibiza has decided to celebrate its annual event at the new Hard Rock Hotel Ibiza.

With music being one of the most important aspects of our new hotel, there is a natural compatibility between IMS and Hard Rock Hotel Ibiza.

The new Hard Rock Hotel Ibiza will comprise of two buildings joined by a completely re-modelled lobby and a multifunctional space that will include a variety of dining, shopping and entertainment options. Staying true to its musical heritage, the hotel will also feature live music performances by internationally renowned groups, complementing the Ibiza scene, a place of pilgrimage for international artists.

biffy clyro ibizarrocksSo the 9th season of Ibiza Rocks kicks off with the announcement of the first two headliners – and what brilliant choices.

We’ve been going to pretty much every single Ibiza Rocks gig since 2007 (at Bar M) and every year we always look forward to seeing the first announcements, this year is no different.

So it’s HAIM & 1975 -  we are hugely looking forward to seeing them both – HAIM were one of my original Ibiza Rocks wishlist artists here so to have them headline the opening party is great news and with 1975 the following week it’s a perfect start to the Ibiza Rocks season.

HAIM kick off the opening party on the 4th June and then the following week is 1975 on the 11th June.

The closing party will be 17th September.  In case you are wondering what all the fuss about HAIM is – have a listen below with our neat little audio player with all the tracks on our favourite radio station Amazing Radio

Hard Rock Cafe Ibiza Pinktober campaign

October 12th, 2013 3:25 pm Posted by: admin in ibiza | Comments (0)

The world-famous Hard Rock brand is going PINK in support of its 14th Annual PINKTOBERT campaign, which provides guests with a variety of ways to show their support for the cause! Proceeds from the campaign will support research and awareness-driving efforts for breast cancer charities worldwide, and Hard Rock Cafe Ibiza could not be more proud to participate in it.

Hard Rock Cafe Ibiza launched its PINKTOBER campaign this past 26th of September with a magnificent concert of 2 great artists: Dover and Macaco, where the volunteers of the Asociación Española Contra el Cáncer – the AECC of Ibiza – came to help in the bar during the concert. At the end of the concert, Hard Rock Cafe Ibiza donated 847,14€ to this local group.

Also, to support the PINKTOBER campaign, both artists agreed to sing a pink Fender guitar which will be raffled off at the end of this month. The tickets for the raffle are only 2€ and are available all month at Hard Rock Cafe. All of the money collected will be donated directly to the AECC of Ibiza. The winner will be announced the 30th of October on the Hard Rock Cafe Ibiza Facebook page. (facebook.com/HRCIbiza)

PINKTOBER also brings the possibility to collaborate with special edition merchandise, including Hard Rock’s PINKTOBER T- shirt, which is currently available at Hard Rock Cafe Ibiza. Part of the total sales of this product will be donated to the local association to directly help those on the island who are most affected with this illness.

Continuing with the agenda of activities, on Thursday 24th of October, Hard Rock Cafe Ibiza will offer a unique concert inside the cafe where 3 local bands – of different generations – “Epsilon”, “Jetlag” and “Uncle Sal” – will also assist with the fundraising by sharing their talent and show for free. This concert will be free entrance, with a suggested donation, and everybody is welcome from 20:00 hrs.

The end of the campaign will be a charity dinner on Saturday 26th of October where Hard Rock will raffle exclusive prizes, all with the objective to collect the most money possible for Hard Rock’s PINKTOBER campaign. Tickets for the dinner are available at Hard Rock Cafe and also from the AECC of Ibiza (donella@aecc.es)

If you would like to join and help with the PINKTOBER campaign with a contribution or idea, please contact: smm@hrcibiza.com.
