ibiza rocks

Ibiza Rocks 2011 announce today that Plan B and BRIT Award nominee will be the first of the bands to play at Ibiza Rocks and Mallorca Rocks at this summers’ 2011 set of gigs. Plan B will kick off Europe’s hottest summer long series of live gigs under the stars, at the opening parties of Mallorca Rocks (Tues 31 May) and Ibiza Rocks (Weds 01 June).

The bands will start on Tuesday’s at Mallorca Rocks before coming across to the ground-breaking Ibiza Rocks Hotel in San Antonio for another umissable gig at Ibiza Rocks, which is making the very most of midweek with an all new Wednesday slot. That’ll be seventeen weekly gigs in Mallorca AND Ibiza. It’s official – the Ibiza Rocks brand is taking over the Balearics.

With the release of his multi-platinum selling second album “The Defamation of Strickland Banks”, Plan B proved he is the ultimate package: a fully-fledged music star totally in touch with a new generation of live music lovers. The multi-talented star from east London has displayed his rap core roots, shown his soulful side and consistently delivered electrifying live performances across the UK. Next month Plan B will wow the crowds at The BRIT Awards before embarking on his first headline arena tour (March 2011) which includes a date at London’s O2 Arena.

Having secured 3 BRIT Award nominations for British Album, British Single and British Male Solo Artist, Plan B is firmly on the A list. With his stunning live set spanning a mix of genres, the dapper lyrical genius will hit the Balearics with a back to back musical feast on Tuesday 31st May (Mallorca Rocks Hotel) and Wednesday 1st June (Ibiza Rocks Hotel).

Plan B said: “This is going to be fun. I’ve never been to Ibiza before. I better start working out what I’m going to wear now, it’s going to be hard to make speedo’s work with my suit jacket.”

In addition to Plan B, Ibiza Rocks welcome back resident DJ and rising star, Doorly, plus the supercool Nicola Bear, a team that will take over the decks whilst the weekly crowds tear up the dancefloor at the gigs and after parties.

Ibiza and Mallorca Rocks have teamed up with monarch.co.uk to offer great value, high frequency flights to both of the Islands, with over 13 flights a week to Ibiza and 26 flights a week to Palma from London, Manchester and Birmingham.

The Prodigy to headline Ibiza Rocks and 1st bands announced

March 15th, 2010

ibiza rocksIbiza is set for another rocking year – we can now announce the first set of bands for Ibiza Rocks 2010.

The Prodigy will headline Ibiza Rocks 5th Birthday gig on 20th July. Kele from Bloc Party will headline with support from Delphic on 31st August and Florence and the Machine will play on 24th August.

Returning again will be The Courteeners on 22nd June, Dizzee Rascal on 27th July, The Kooks on 10th August and Pendulum on 7th Sep.

Mallorca Rocks will also feature Calvin Harris and Example on 5th July and Dizzee Rascal on 26th July with Pendulum playing the closing party on 6th September.

This year “Reclaim The Dancefloor” Ibiza Rocks After-Party returns and will be at Es Paradis every Tuesday at midnight shortly after the Ibiza Rocks live gigs end.

ibiza rocks hotelIbiza Rocks turns five this summer and boy has this baby grown up! The line up speaks volumes, with The Prodigy, Kele, Florence and the Machine, The Courteeners, Dizzee Rascal, Delphic, Calvin Harris, The Kooks, Pendulum and Example already booked for the summer long celebration.

Taking place every Tuesday from 08 June to 14 September at the Ibiza Rocks Hotel, it’s going to be one hell of a party, bursting with the biggest bands, DJ’s and best breakthrough talent, for 15 weeks straight.

Back in early 2005, Ibiza Rocks was born and the baby of the Balearics quite literally represented the birth of new life in Ibiza and enticed a new generation to the island. Bye bye to ageing superstar DJ’s, bloated VIP areas, inflated prices, foam parties and bad taste booze cruises. Hello to Ibiza Rocks’ groundbreaking series of live music events and an innovative youth brand totally in tune with their hungry, young audience.

From intimate, open-air gigs with some of the worlds best bands including Arctic Monkeys, to the launch of the destination concept Ibiza Rocks Hotel in 2008 with The Enemy, to the opening of a new hotel in Mallorca this year and the most sensational gig line up to date, the Ibiza Rocks brand knows no boundaries. Ibiza Rocks – unrivalled, unstoppable and unmissable!

courteeners ibiza rocksIbiza Rocks kicks off on Tuesday 08 June with some very special surprise guests at the Ibiza Rocks Hotel, the only hotel to offer an auditorium style atmosphere and private viewing balconies off the bedrooms.

June will also see one of the UK’s best live bands and festival favourities, The Courteeners (22) swing through the hotel’s rock ‘n’ roll doors and storm the open-air stage.

Liam Fray, The Courteeners said: ‘We can’t wait to get back out there. People go to Ibiza for one thing and that’s to have a f*cking good time. Let’s face it, we definitely fit the criteria.

Back by popular demand in July are ‘Dance Wiv Me’ collaborators, Scottish chart-topper Calvin Harris (06) and BRIT Award winner for Male Solo Artist, Dizzee Rascal(27). Both have played stand out sets at Ibiza Rocks in the past, but this year they will make history as two of the acts to play both Mallorca Rocks and Ibiza Rocks back to back; two islands, for two amazing live gigs within two days. Calvin will be joined at both gigs by one of the best breakthrough artists of 2010, Example.

dizzee rascal ibiza rocksDizzee Rascal said: ‘Can’t wait to play Ibiza Rocks again this year. It was one of my best shows of 2009. It went off big time.’

Every night at the Ibiza Rocks Hotel is party night and every Tuesday night in Ibizabelongs to Ibiza Rocks, but Tuesday 20 July will see some serious sparks flying. For the 5th birthday party, Ibiza’s premier live music promoters have pulled out all the stops to pull in the original Firestarters – The Prodigy!

Yes, the pioneers of Ibiza’s live music scene will celebrate with the pioneers of the electronic dance music scene. With both parties making their name from mixing up dance and rock and delivering ‘Music For the Jilted Generation’, this is the perfect Ibiza Rocks 5th Birthday party partnership. With a vision of creating a night for ‘dance kids who want to rock and rock kids who want to dance’ Ibiza Rocks was conceived with this very moment in mind. Happy Birthday indeed. It’s going to be emotional.

The third act to play both venues is multi-million selling band The Kooks who will make a welcome return to Ibiza Rocks in August (10), having already launched the brand new Mallorca Rocks Hotel on 06 June with Zane Lowe.

In one of the coolest billings of the hottest summer line up, Ibiza Rocks is proud to announce that Kele Okereke from Bloc Party will perform one of his first ever live solo shows as part of his side project. Taking place at the Ibiza Rocks Hotel in August (31), Kele will be supported by one of the biggest breakthrough bands of the year,Delphic. Having smashed into the Top 10 with debut album ‘Acolyte’ these boys and their Balearic sound is a match made in heaven for the White Isle.

Following her stunning debut onto the Ibiza Rocks stage as part of Radio 1’s Ibiza Weekend last year, August will see the return of Best British Album BRIT Award winnerFlorence and the Machine for her first headline show (24).

Pendulum will be back with their banging beats and electric live show in September (7). They are sure to be on a high as they fly in straight from Mallorca, where they will have headlined the Mallorca Rocks closing party the night before. September will see another set of very special guests play live under the stars before the Ibiza Rocks 2010 season comes to close on 14 September.

kooks ibiza rocksAlong with the best line up to date, Ibiza Rocks boasts its best deals, with the continuation of specially priced midweek breaks for the more flexible traveller and added extras. This summer all holidays booked with www.ibizarocks.com include a gig ticket and entry to Ibiza Rocks’ new after party at Es Paradis.

The official Ibiza Rocks After Party will run every Tuesday at Es Paradis after the Ibiza Rocks gigs finish and ticket holders will get FREE* entry. The musical policy will be very much in keeping with the ‘anything goes’ party spirit that fuels the gigs so expect the best in mash-ups, bootlegs, 4/4 indie, anthems and everything in between. Already signed up as monthly residents are Example + DJ Wire and DJ Dan (from the massive student night Propaganda) plus the likes of UNION DJs who will join residents Doorlyand Nicola Bear. More details on this to come.

Last years’ afterparty ‘Reclaim the Dancefloor!’ became such a runaway hit that it will continue as a stand-alone night. With the help of resident DJ and rising starDoorly, it reclaimed the dancefloor last year and it’s claimed Wednesdays as its own in Ibiza this year beginning from June 16th – Sept 14th at Eden. The full, massive line up’s for this will be announced soon. As well as producing the Ibiza Rocks mix CD (released June 2010) Doorly will be back behind the decks as resident DJ for both Ibiza Rocks and Reclaim the Dancefloor.

pendulum ibiza rocksAndy McKay, Promoter, Ibiza Rocks said: ‘To have a line up like this is the best birthday present we could ever ask for. The Prodigy should be a very special night for the whole island. The line up keeps getting stronger and the Ibiza Rocks brand keeps getting bigger, but our core values have remained the same – great live entertainment at great value. Our weekly parties are epic, crammed with top talent and we keep thinking of new ideas to add value to someone’s night out or holiday. We keep delivering and thankfully the bands and the crowds keep coming.’

mallorca rocks hotel
Luke Pritchard, The Kooks, said: “We’re well excited to be asked to open Mallorca Rocks Hotel. Can’t wait to play the new album to a crowd like that, if they’re anything like the Ibizan crowd. We shall see you all there in the sun.

Mallorca Rocks Hotel, situated in the very heart of Magaluf is a massive 12-building affair set around a huge 85-metre lagoon-like pool, surrounded by three new bars, a restaurant and the Mallorca Rocks fashion store. Palm trees, tropical gardens and a chill out terrace make up the vibrant outdoor scene. There is also a five-a-side football pitch and a sports complex with tennis courts nearby plus watersports on the beach, so days can be as lazy or as lively as guests choose. Gigs will be as live and as loud as guests expect!

Andy McKay, Promoter said: “The Kooks were with us when it all began, when both band and brand were in their infancy. It’s a real coup to be celebrating our success together, five years on, at the launch of Mallorca Rocks Hotel. We are an unrivalled youth brand and this exciting new venture is further proof of our commitment to providing great quality accommodation and entertainment at great value.”

Special introductory deals start from £77 per person for a 7-night stay including ticket for The Kooks (if booked before 28/2, for a stay during 5/6 to 12/6 in a self-catering apartment, 4 sharing. Flights not included).

All deals bookable through www.mallorcarockshotel.com Stand alone gig tickets, priced €35 plus booking fee at www.ibizarocks.com/tickets

We can also exclusively reveal that Zane Lowe from Radio 1 will DJ and that the headlining act for the following opening party at Ibiza Rocks Hotel on Tuesday 8th June won’t be The Kooks.
