We voted for Burn The Negative but as you can see Groove Armada was the popular vote:

Burn The Negative – Road to Ibiza Rocks 2009

September 20th, 2009

My favourite band of the Ibiza Rocks season, Burn The Negative, have put up a short “Road to Ibiza Rocks” video – so I have no problem in shamelessly plugging it – especially after they sent me a copy of their new album which you should all BUY…

The Klaxons – Ibiza Rocks 2009 – photos

September 11th, 2009

Ibiza Rocks – 8th September – The Klaxons

The Closing party – difficult to know what to say other than another top night – everthing was fun, I did photos as usual but Isobel asked us all to write on a small whiteboard with our favourite band of the year and then have our photo taken with it for a photo gallery – for me it was a no-brainer: Burn The Negative – Pendulum second – sorry everyone else….

Next year is Ibiza Rocks 5th anniversary – Ibiza Rocks is becoming part of Ibiza’s heritage and long that may continue…

September 9th, 2009

Ibiza Rocks – 8th September – Big Pink

The closing of the Ibiza Rocks season and Big Pink supported The Klaxons. With their current single “Dominos” out and being a really catchy song it was no surprise that there was a sizable crowd to see them.

Great fun – as per usual.

Soulwax – Ibiza Rocks – The Photos

Ibiza Rocks – 1st September – Soulwax

This maybe anecdotal but it seemed the previous 2 years of Soulwax playing at Ibiza Rocks were just effectively 2ManyDjs on stage. This year it was basically a full on band. Much better.

Ibiza Rocks – 1st September – Burn The Negative

Burn The Negative supported Soulwax last night. Really good fun gig – nearest comparison I can make is that they are like an electro version of The White Lies. We had a great chat with them after the gig, really down to earth guys – see them live, buy their records…burnthenegative.co.uk

MGMT – Ibiza Rocks – “Kids” video from last night

August 26th, 2009

Dear Mr Tour Manager of MGMT, this appeared on youtube at lunchtime – we noticed that there was no “proper” filming of MGMT so your fans will have to make do with this sort of thing :)

MGMT at Ibiza Rocks tonight – the photos

August 26th, 2009
ibiza rocks 2009

Ibiza Rocks – 25th August – MGMT

As predicted, MGMT tonight at Ibiza Rocks was another very busy night – MGMT management though seemed to think they are a world famous band playing a stadium gig at Madison Square Gardens and protecting their “image” (rather reminiscent of the Arctic Monkeys doing a similar thing at Ibiza Rocks a couple of years ago) – it was a bit of a farce restricting the regular photographers when you had upwards of 4/500 people taking photos and videos on their iphones, mobiles and little digital cameras ;) We think they forgot they were in Ibiza…

Since most of the regular photographers weren’t allowed into the pit we all decided that we’d get down the front and take photos of MGMT from the audience (which of course meant we could use a flash) until their Tour manager decided to try otherwise. Their tour manager: “I’m not worried about the audience cameras I’m worried about you people” why?… would you rather have 500 dodgy photos of your band on the internet or decent high quality pictures on the net and promote your band in the best possible light ?

Fair play though to the Ibiza Rocks team for sticking up for the 3 of us who decided to flout the “ban” by taking photos from the audience. As one of them (photographers) said – “in 5 years or so time when point and shoot cameras become as good a quality as current digital high-end cameras the point is going to become moot”…

However – both The Virgins and MGMT were great and it was telling that it was almost as busy as Dizzee Rascall the other week – and that was rammed. Spotted upstairs were Jade Jagger, Amber le Bon, Tiesto and Judge Jules. A colleague said it was the best Ibiza Rocks gig so far. MGMT sounded in parts like everyone from Bowie, The Hollies, The Shadows to The Undertones & The Clash and some prog rock – good fun… Lots of loo roll fun at the end as well with Andy wrapping himself up in loo roll.
