Having teamed up with the UK’s most forward-thinking station Rinse FM for two phenomenal shows last year, the Rinse family is back to take over W.A.R! for four exclusive events, featuring a hugely anticipated debut show from TNGHT in Ibiza, headline shows from KATY B in Mallorca and Ibiza and a very special show in the Ibiza sunshine with SO SOLID CREW, also featuring SKEPTA andRinse FM’s very own ONEMAN.

First up to headline the W.A.R! x Rinse Takeover at the Ibiza Rocks Hotelon 14th June is TNGHT – this insanely talented duo are helping to redefine the state of new pop, dance music and hip hop in a wholly fresh fusion. Just last year, producers Hudson Mohawke (Glasgow) and Lunice (Canada) teamed up to form TNGHT and debuted live at SXSW to mass critical acclaim. Their self-titled EP swiftly followed featuring huge tracks ‘Higher Ground’ and ‘Bugg’n’ and success soared. Kanye West loves them so much he jumped on stage to perform at their Brooklyn gig and signed Mohawke to his own GOOD Music label. Known to shatter glass when they play, fans can expect an extra electric set when TNGHT play poolside on the open-air Rocks stage.

KATY B will be Balearic bound once more to perform a double header of live gigs under the stars – Mallorca Rocks Hotel on 8th August and Ibiza Rocks Hotel on 9th August. Katy B’s debut album ‘On a Mission’ was heralded as a modern dance masterpiece and her follow up EP ‘Danger’ is every bit as epic. Boasting a stellar cast of collaborators including producers Jacques Greene, Diplo, Geeneus and Zinc as well as vocal features from Jessie Ware, Wiley and Iggy Azalea, this is a tantalizing taste of what’s to come from Katy B when she releases her second album in Spring.

SO SOLID CREW are back and will be making their Balearic debut at the Ibiza Rocks Hotel on 6th September. Having first captured the headlines and the airwaves in 2001 with massive tracks ’21 Seconds’ and ‘Oh No’ the UK’s most influential grime collective recently announced a comeback show at London’s IndigO2, which quickly sold out. Back with original members and their biggest hits plus new material, So Solid Crew will bring their unique blend of crossover garage and hip-hop to Ibiza. Partying poolside, under the stars to the sounds of So Solid Crew, on a bill that also includes London grime MC, producer and original member of acclaimed grime collective ‘Boy Better Know’ SKEPTA, plus Rinse FM’s very own ONEMAN – it’s going to be special.

Stay tuned to Rinse FM and www.ibizarocks.com for more line up announcements in the coming weeks.
