Ibiza Rocks 2011 – Tinie Tempah – photos and review

July 28th, 2011

Ibiza Rocks last night was one of those nights where you go in with very little expectation you are going to enjoy it but the complete opposite happens. I’d seen Maverick Sabre on Jools Holland and was really impressed and in addition to that he’s got a great sense of humour on twitter, its not normally my sort of thing but him and the band were great and were a brilliant support band – he’s got a down-to-earth persona about him that is refreshing.

Up next and a bit like Kissy SellOut the other week, Rusko has a very energetic dj style – it was good – the crowd loved it.

If you had asked me which Ibiza Rocks gig I was least looking forward to this year it would’ve been Tinie Tempah as I imagined it would be a dj type setup. Nothing could’ve been further from the truth. I saw the drums and guitars being set up and was wondering what we’d get. What we got was not a million miles away from Biffy Clyro last week. Loud guitars, a full band, Tinie bouncing all over the place. Ibiza Rocks was absolutely rammed and although I have to stick with Biffy being the best gig so far this year, Tinie Tempah easily slots in at a very close second – and we had Kylie in attendance to boot. Amazing night and reaffirms my belief that you should always see any band/artist once – you might be surprised… Shock great gig of the year for me.

Ibiza Rocks 2011 6th Birthday – Morning Parade + Biffy Clyro

July 24th, 2011

So this week was Ibiza Rocks 6th birthday and it didn’t disappoint. Opening up were Morning Parade who were great and warmed up the crowd nicely. Next up was Zane Lowe and a dj set – I know it’s his style but a minute or so of each track before merging into another is not really my thing – as a filler between 2 bands though it works with the crowd.

Biffy Clyro though were absolutely stunning. With very little banter until the 4th song it was full-on ballsy guitar driven rock n roll. A clean and loud sound, the set typified for me what Ibiza Rocks is all about. Couldn’t not go to Ibiza Rocks House at Pikes after-party where Andy Carroll & Gabby manned the decks to stupid o’clock in the morning, both bands were there, everyone involved with Ibiza Rocks were there – overall great fun and a perfect 6th birthday bash…

Ibiza Bands Together to stop ‘Silent Killer’

July 16th, 2011

This summer, as part of a week long series of events in Ibiza, The World Hepatitis Alliance (WHA) is making a wristband available to holiday makers which will get them discounts and freebies at all the best night spots on the island including Ibiza Rocks, We Love Music at Space, Aura and Café Mambo; it even gets you money off diving schools, car hire, child care with Babe Watch and early-bird bookings for your holiday next year. You could even win your summer 2012 villa with it!

The World Hepatitis Alliance is the international umbrella organization of patient groups around the world working to raise awareness of hepatitis B and C. 500 million people have one or other of these viruses and 1 million people die every year as a result, yet who knows anything about them? This year they are partnering with the World Health Organization to organise the very first official World Hepatitis Day on July 28th.

Ibiza has been at the forefront of awareness raising for hepatitis C for many years, with legendry parties at Manumission, Ibiza Rocks and We love Music at Space and Ibiza’s yearly music festival the International Music Summit all doing their bit to promote awareness.

On the 24 July Mark and Sarah Broadbent of We Love Music at Space will be raising money via their guest list for the WHA’s sister organization The Hepatitis C Trust for the third year running: they have raised over €7,500 so far.

27 July sees The Hepatitis C Trust join forces with Guilty Pleasures on the first night of their summer residency at Aura, where they’ll be auctioning a selection of Boy George’s 80s Icon photography series.

On 29 July WHA will be at Café Mambo and, alongside world renowned DJ sets, The Alliance has organized a super luxury lucky dip giving away tickets to Hurts, Example and Pete Doherty gigs as well festivals including Croatia’s popular Outlook Festival. There will be chances to win great days out and dinners on the island as well as designer products and saucy underwear.

The Alliance’s Gemma Peppe says:

         Ibiza has a reputation for being a party island but actually it’s full of young open-minded people who have the power to change perceptions. Part of the problem with hep B & C is the lack of awareness and the stigma. To make inroads it’s crucial to raise awareness amongst the young. Not only can they change attitudes and perceptions but they can learn preventative measures to stop the spread of both illnesses. Ibiza is an international crowd and we are an international organization, so it’s a no-brainer

Ibiza Rocks 2011 – Fenech Soler – the photos

July 15th, 2011

One of the bands we’d been looking forward to and Fenech Soler didn’t disappoint – nice and rocky and tons of energy. After them it was the turn of Radio 1’s Jaymo & Andy George for a 40 odd minute dj set – there were a few mutterings of “if i wanted to see dj’s and hear club music I’d go to a club” – but the crowd loved it. Then came Mark Ronson vs Zane Lowe – not entirely sure it was a “face-off” in the true sense of it but the crowd went wild and everyone left happy – probably the biggest crowd at Ibiza Rocks so far.
