MGMT at Ibiza Rocks tonight – the photos

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.

Ibiza Rocks – 18th August – Vampire Weekend & Miike Snow

Obviously it wasn’t as busy as last weeks Dizzee Rascal gig but it was just as good nonetheless. From our point of view it was great to see guitars back on the Ibiza Rocks Hotel stage.

Watch this space later this afternoon for details of an event taking place at the Ibiza Rocks Hotel on Saturday night…

Dizzee Rascal – Ibiza Rocks 2009 – the photos

August 12th, 2009
ibiza rocks 2009

Ibiza Rocks – 11th August – Dizzee Rascal

A few days before hand we got word that Dizzee Rascal at Ibiza Rocks tonight was a sell-out. Understatement of the year. Everything was rearranged slightly – the downstairs raised areas were gone, the upstairs terrace was expanded and even then the Ibiza Rocks Hotel was absolutely rammed.

It’s not exaggerating to say that tonight was easily the most attended Ibiza Rocks I’ve ever been to.

To paraphase the previous single it was completely bonkers – in a good way…

The Enemy at Ibiza Rocks last night – photos

Ibiza Rocks – 4th August – The Enemy

Another top night from the Coventry trio. It’s great to be in the photographers pit taking photos but there was the inevitable beer throwing when The Enemy play – got soaked but it was great fun though.

There was also the obligatory stage diving/crowd surfing towards the end from Andy the bass player – he obviously enjoyed it as he had a number of goes…

Pendulum at Ibiza Rocks tonight

July 29th, 2009

ibiza rocks 2009

Ibiza Rocks Pendulum and South Central

It was a tad odd that 2 guys came on and played their computers ;) (South Central) – To be honest it was weird from my point of view that the vocals were pre-programmed but overall it worked – which is all that is important. They remixed La Roux The Kill and it was good but I think they lost the crowd about 3/4 of the way through. Having said that we had a great chat from one half of South Central afterwards who was all for more live music on Ibiza.

Pendulum afterwards just absolutely nailed it – someone asked me before the gig which was the best so far and i said it will be tonight – “but they haven’t played yet?”…. so ???
