Ibiza Rocks Hotel to open in Mallorca

November 11th, 2009

mallorca-rocks-hotelIbiza Rocks will further expand the brand with the opening of a second destination concept hotel next summer. The 330 room Mallorca Rocks Hotel, situated in Magaluf, will be based on the same successful model as the Ibiza Rocks Hotel, encapsulating a whole lifestyle under one roof, including up to six gigs at the hotel during it’s opening season.

Magaluf is the biggest youth resort in the Mediterranean and it’s about to get it’s biggest makeover. The live music line up at the Mallorca Rocks Hotel will be revealed early next year and like the flagship Ibiza Rocks Hotel, guests can expect to see some of the world’s best acts playing live under the stars in the hotel’s courtyard throughout the summer. Eventually, the gigs will run weekly and many of the acts booked will perform at both Mallorca Rocks and Ibiza Rocks within 48 hours.

ibiza rocks hotelWhilst Ibiza Rocks will retain its role of booking cutting edge DJ’s and breakthrough bands as well as established acts in order to cater for its more music savvy crowd, Mallorca Rocks will initially focus more on the mainstream, championing the best big artists playing Ibiza Rocks, in the aim of establishing a regular, quality live event in Magaluf and rejuvenating the islands music scene.

Mallorca Rocks HotelAndy McKay, Promoter said: “We are an unrivalled youth focused brand, providing great quality accommodation and entertainment at great value. Most of all, we provide something relevant to a new generation of live music loving holidaymakers. Having pioneered the social rejuvenation of Ibiza with Ibiza Rocks, we want to emulate this success in Mallorca and make quality live music much more accessible giving our target audience better value, flexible travel and ultimately, more choice.

Ibiza Rocks Hotel 2009 & Ibiza Rocks Bar M diner news

May 11th, 2009

We went over to San Antonio and Ibiza Rocks Hotel for a meeting with head Ibiza Rocks honcho Andy McKay. Afterwards he gave us a tour of the Ibiza Rocks Hotel with 2009 changes.

The “2nd pool” in the main area of the hotel has gone and the stage moved forward about 2 metres. The pagoda has also gone – this makes the area much more gig friendly. They have also changed the front Ibiza Rocks Hotel sign. There is a good fire exit that now leads outside from underneath the main gig/pool area and more safety measures have been added.

Later we went down to Bar M where they have launched their Ibiza Rocks diner – it looks good and the food is very reasonably priced – as is the beer – 2 euros for a bottle of san miguel is good value.

here’s some photos we took today:

Soulwax at Ibiza Rocks – review

August 29th, 2008

Once again Ibiza Rocks delivers contrast. Hot on the heels of the Mike Skinner (The Streets) approach to crowd management, and much to the relief of the local Health & Safety executive, the band charged with bettering that experience were Soulwax – masters of the remix rather than the microphone.

At times the show went so retro that older hacks in the audience could recall the days when dance culture made the decision to worship the DJ hunched over the decks rather than the front man and his axe wielding accomplices. How times change?

Soulwax, in all their guises, are fundamentally two Belgian DJs trying various different formulas wrapped around an apparently weak set of material. For no obvious reason they demoted themselves to second in the line up for the night, making 2 Many DJs (also themselves) the headline act for the night.

So first up were a four piece band with a drummer and electric guitarist doing electronic classics. Interesting we all thought as we admired their flashing light show whilst it slowly dawned on us that there weren’t going to be any vocals, just the odd sample thrown in here and there.

soulwaxThen there was the problem of the white tuxedos and dickie bows, no doubt in deference to the white island but not really practical for the stage on a hot August night.

Nonetheless, there we were listening to a combination of M25 rave breakdowns with drum solos and guitar interchanges at the end of each song to the point where the crowd didn’t know when to start clapping. Or maybe there was some other reason?

soulwaxUnfortunately the E’s aren’t as strong as they used to be and this audience aren’t bothered anyway, so the repetitive beats and the flashing lights were never going to work the way they did twenty years ago. On the other hand, I have to confess to not having been to Belgium for a long time.

The equipment was cleared from the stage and it looked as if that was that, but eventually 2 Many DJs appeared and it soon became apparent that the name was appropriate. Their set consisted of teasers from other people’s anthemic intros whilst two blokes reached across each other to twiddle distant knobs on the mixer as if the audience wasn’t there. The lights flashed and the audience did their bit, but this wasn’t ‘live’ music?

After 20 excruciating minutes two cuties appeared front of stage, where the band’s equipment had earlier filled the void, and the back lighting took our attention away from the two guys arguing behind the decks.

A few more Eurythmics intros swiftly followed by twiddle and squeak and the show was over. Next week should be better…
