IBIZA GETS ITS HARLEM SHUFFLE & SHAKE ON…

harlem-shake

The island gets ready to represent in the latest dance craze to sweep the planet

The Ibiza Harlem Shake takes place this Friday, 1st March on Paseo Maritimo de Ibiza

 

(FIX/Ibiza/28Feb 2013)

There’s never a dull moment round here especially when there’s a new dance to be learned and a new viral bandwagon to be jumped on to. So, what better place to get involved with the latest dance craze sweeping the planet, the Harlem Shake, than Ibiza, the world’s centre of all things electronic music & dance related.

FIX Ibiza, organisers of the local version of the wacky online meme, have confirmed Friday 1st March as the date to get on down, literally, to the Paseo Maritimo in Ibiza for a couple of hours of good old-fashioned fun with a few friends and family.

At least, that was the original plan. But since FIX boss, Jillian Canney first came up with the idea from the safety of her sofa last Sunday, the Ibiza Harlem Shake has taken on a life of its own, converting into a gathering of an approximate 100+ kindred shakin’ souls, all ready to add their energy and enthusiasm to the video, which is expected to be online within days if not hours of filming.

There is still time to get involved and considering that the Ibiza Harlem Shake is morphing into a serious production, organisers are hoping to count on the public and the already confirmed Ibiza Shakers to alert and bring along any acrobatic, sword-swallowing, bubble-blowing friends and animated entertainers they might know for added fabulousness to this island shake.

With a starting time of 4pm, the event is expected to last no longer than three hours, 7pm/sunset realistically being the cut-off point for filming purposes. The location for the mini event has been chosen specifically with Dalt Vila as its backdrop, representing Ibiza all the way!

Get involved! For more info, contact Jill Canney on tel: 645 90 90 98

The Instructions

4pm, Friday 1st March: Meeting Point en situ, the park opposite the Casino de Ibiza, on the Paseo Maritimo de Ibiza.

For the first scene, lets call it ‘The Solitary Dancer surrounded by the Normal Normans’, we will need around 25 volunteers to be dressed in their civvies.

For the second scene, we’ll need everybody in the most weird and wonderful get up they can come up with. Also, bring some props. We’ll bring a load too, as well as some extra bits and bobs for dressing up if necessary…

We expect to have to do a couple of takes and want to be ready to kick off at 4.30 latest…please help us achieve that and let’s have fun above all else. This is a totally voluntary effort by the Ibiza Winter People!

*We recommend that you take a look at some of the other Harlem Shakes on Youtube before Friday!

What is the HARLEM SHAKE?

It looks like this:

And, according to Wikipedia, it is the following:

An Internet meme in the form of a video of people performing a skit to the song “Harlem Shake“. Being a meme, the video was replicated using the same concept by many people, which eventually led to it becoming viral in early February 2013, with thousands of “Harlem Shake” videos being made and uploaded to YouTube every day.

The form of the meme was established in a video uploaded on February 2nd by five teenagers from Queensland, Australia known on YouTube as The Sunny Coast Skate. The video started a viral trend of people uploading to YouTube their own “Harlem Shake” videos. The teenagers’ video, in its turn, was a follow-up to a video by a YouTube comedy vlogger named Filthy Frank featuring a part where several costumed people danced to the song “Harlem Shake” by Baauer.

IBIZA ROCKS 2013- MORE ACTS CONFIRMED!

IR_LOGO_2013

ELLIE GOULDING, DIZZEE RASCAL, THE VACCINES, RIZZLE KICKS, JAGWAR MA & PALMA VIOLETS

 

JOIN FOALS, JAKE BUGG & EXAMPLE ON SUMMER’S HOTTEST BILL

PLUS

MTV TO BROADCAST ALL THE BEST BITS FROM THE BALEARICS

Ibiza Rocks guarantees hot weather, cool accommodation and 16 weeks of phenomenal live gigs under the Balearic stars, with the most in-demand live acts and DJ’s on the planet.  Joining previously announced acts Jake Bugg, Example and Foals on the incredible line-up are chart-toppers and festival favourites Ellie Goulding, Dizzee Rascal, The Vaccines and Rizzle Kicks plus Jagwar Ma and Palma Violets.  

Ellie Goulding is undoubtedly one of the UK’s most singular and compelling songwriters. In the two-and-a-half years since releasing massive debut album Lights, Ellie has secured huge global success including the USA where she’s sold over 3m albums.  Back with new album Halcyon and lead single, Anything Could Happen, Ellie shows a new immersion in electronica and dance beats, producing a fascinating collision between the clubbing scene and Ellie’s love of folk-pop soundscapes.  These gigs are perfectly placed and it is a huge honour to have one of the worlds most successful female solo stars take centre stage for her debut at the Ibiza Rocks Hotel.

After tearing up the new year in style with the release of DirteeTV.com The Mixtape Vol.2, Dizzee Rascal releases featured track Bassline Junkie this month, a taster of what’s to come from Dizzee’s forthcoming fifth studio album and his headline gig at Ibiza Rocks. It’s been almost 10 years since Dizzee released his debut single and Rocks is proud to have been on an incredible journey with the East London MC turned worldwide legend who has just been chosen by Muse to appear as a special guest on their UK Stadium tour.  Having first headlined Ibiza Rocks in 2008, Dizzee’s love affair with Ibiza began and headline gigs followed in 2009, 2010 and 2011.  Back to the Balearics and so, to his home away from home, Dizzee will once again bring his genre-fusing musical genius to the famous open-air Ibiza Rocks stage with a full new live show.

Since performing at Ibiza Rocks in 2011 just as they released their debut album, London indie-rock outfit The Vaccines have smashed the live scene, released No.1 follow up album Come of Age and become one of the most sought after bands on the festival scene. Having sold out London’s Alexandra Palace and 02 Arena within 6 months of each other and currently on a sold out European Tour, the guys will be Balearic bound once more for a headline show in Ibiza before continuing stateside where their success has also soared.  Support on this show comes from Palma Violets, who have just completed the NME Awards Tour and are arguably the most hyped band since The Libertines.  A special show guaranteed.

Justin Young, The Vaccines said: ‘We still have incredibly fond memories of the first time we played Ibiza Rocks. It was so much fun. It was in the middle of our first busy summer playing festivals and the whole thing felt like a holiday. So much so, that we’re coming back. We’re already excited at the prospect.” 

Since supporting Dizzee Rascal & The Streets at Ibiza Rocks two years, Rizzle Kicks’ success has gone stratospheric. There’s a mutual love between the Rizzles and the Rocks – they even filmed their video for ‘Dreamers’ at Ibiza Rocks House at Pikes last summer. Having hooked up with Norman Cook and Neptunes super producer Pharrell Williams on their forthcoming new album and currently touring the U.S with fellow Rocks headliner Ed Sheeran, Rizzle Kicks will bring BIG things back to the famous open-air Ibiza Rocks stage this summer.

But before that, Ibiza Rocks will kick off the season in style in with the unique swagger and sound of Jake Bugg – BRIT award nominee for Best British Breakthrough Artist and one of the most hotly anticipated singer/songwriters of this generation. Previously announced artists also include Example who will make a triumphant return to the island with his full live festival show for his headline gigs and, arguably the ‘must see’ live band of the moment, Foals, who will headline the Ibiza Rocks Closing Party, supported by newly announced Sydney based duo Jagwar Mar who are hotly tipped as ‘ones to watch’ for 2013.

ELLIE GOULDING1_pq

Ibiza Rocks Group is also pleased to announce a new partnership with MTV, to screen live performances, exclusive artist interviews and all the highlights from the 16 week long series of outdoor gigs from the Ibiza Rocks Hotel this summer. Seven shows will be broadcast in total, with 3 x 30 min artist specials from Ibiza Rocks, and 2 x 60 min (multi-artist) compilation shows incorporating live track selection and exclusive interviews from Ibiza Rocks and its sister across the water. Coverage will also feature interview footage from Ibiza Rocks House at Pikes Hotel, the legendary rock ‘n’ roll Ibiza retreat where the headline bands stay. Award-winning London based production company, JJ Stereo, will produce all content.

More ‘must see’ solo stars, bands and cutting edge DJ’s will be announced over the coming weeks, so fans can forget the mud and rain this summer and start looking forward to the gig, and holiday of a lifetime on the White Island.

Offering a choice of quality accommodation options at exceptional value, Ibiza Rocks every Wednesday from 05 June to 18 September.  Announced so far below, with much more to come:

Más y mejor: IBIZA ROCKS 2013: Ellie Goulding, Dizzee Rascal, The Vacines…

IR_LOGO_2013

ELLIE GOULDING, DIZZEE RASCAL, THE VACCINES, RIZZLE KICKS, PALMA VIOLETS, JAGWAR MA Y REDLIGHT

 

SE UNEN AL CARTEL DE IBIZA ROCKS 2013 JUNTO CON JAKE BUGG, FOALS Y EXAMPLE

ADEMÁS, MTV EMITIRÁ LOS MEJORES MOMENTOS DEL VERANO

Ibiza, 27 de febrero 2013 (FIX Ibiza).- Ibiza Rocks llega junto al buen tiempo para ofrecer los mejores directos del verano durante 16 semanas consecutivas con los grupos y DJs más solicitados del planeta. A las actuaciones ya anunciadas de Jake Bugg, Example y Foals, se unen al cartel Ellie Goulding, Dizzee Rascal, The Vaccines y Rizzle Kicks, además de Palma Violets, Jagwar Ma y Redlight.

Ellie Goulding es, sin duda, una de las compositoras más singulares y convincentes del Reino Unido. Dos años y medio después del lanzamiento de su álbum de debut, Lights, Ellie se ha asegurado un gran éxito mundial, incluyendo los Estados Unidos, donde vendió más de 3 millones de discos. Ahora regresa con su nuevo disco Halcyon, encabezado por el single Anything Could Happen. En este nuevo trabajo, Ellie se sumerge en la electrónica y la música de baile, lo que produce un choque fascinante entre los ritmos de club y su amor por los paisajes sonoros del folk-pop. Es un gran honor tener a una de las mujeres con más éxito del momento debutando en el escenario de Ibiza Rocks.

Ellie Goulding afirma: “Estoy muy contenta de estar en Ibiza este verano. Ibiza Rocks es uno de los lugares donde siempre he deseado actuar. Cantar en directo para un público es mi pasión y poder hacerlo en un sitio que realmente me gusta es una ventaja extra. ¡Os espero!”.

Tras el emocionante lanzamiento de DirteeTV.com The Mixtape Vol.2, a principios de año, Dizzee Rascal lanza este mes la canción Bassline Junkie, un aperitivo de lo que será su próximo y quinto álbum de estudio así como lo que veremos este verano en su concierto en Ibiza Rocks. Hace casi 10 años desde que Dizzie sacó su single de debut y como no podía ser de otra manera Ibiza Rocks está orgulloso de haber sido testigo del increíble viaje que el MC del Este de Londres ha hecho convirtiéndose en una leyenda internacional. Además acaba de ser escogido por Muse para participar como invitado especial en su gira por los estadios del Reino Unido. Habiendo actuado por primera vez en Ibiza Rocks en 2008, lo de Dizzee con Ibiza es toda una historia de amor, ya que volvió durante tres años consecutivos, en 2009, 2010 y 2011. Este verano regresa a casa con su genial mezcla de estilos para presentar un fascinante y nuevo show en directo.

Dizzee Rascal afirma: “Estoy ansioso por volver a Ibiza Rocks este año. ¡Tengo ganas de una gran fiesta!  La isla es una descarga, me encanta hacer vibrar al público, ellos saben como responder!”.

Desde que tocaron en Ibiza Rocks en 2011, justo después de sacar su disco de debut, las banda londinense de indie-rock The Vaccines ha reventado la escena de conciertos. Más tarde, con su disco Come of Age, la banda se convirtió en una de las más solicitadas del circuito de festivales. Han colgado el cartel de  ‘entradas agotadas’ en el Alexander Palace de Londres y el 02 Arena y ahora están inmersos en su gira europea. Los tendremos brincando en Ibiza, antes de continuar con su gira por Estados Unidos, donde su éxito se ha disparado. Para telonear este concierto contaremos con Palma Violets, quienes acaban de finalizar la gira de los premios NME. Podría decirse que desde The Libertines no ha habido una banda tan aclamada. Espectáculo garantizado.

Justin Young, The Vaccines afirma: “’Todavía nos acordamos con mucho cariño de la primera vez que tocamos en Ibiza Rocks. Fue muy divertido. Fue a mitad de aquel primer verano que no paramos de tocar en festivales con  el añadido de que estar en Ibiza fue como gozar de unas vacaciones. Tanto, que este año repetimos. ¡Nos morimos de ganas!”.

Desde que telonearon a Dizzee Rascal & The Streets en Ibiza Rocks hace dos años, el éxito de Rizzle Kicks se ha vuelto estratosférico. Hay un amor mutuo entre Rizzle e Ibiza Rocks, incluso grabaron el videoclip de ‘Dreamers’ en Ibiza Rocks House en el Hotel Pikes el verano pasado. Para su próximo álbum cuentan con el súper productor Pharrel Williams, también de Norman Cook y de Neptunes. Actualmente están de gira con uno de los nuestros, el responsable de abrir la temporada del año pasado, Ed Sheeran. Seguro que el directo de Rizzle Kicks en Ibiza Rocks de este verano será muy grande.

Rizzle Kicks afirma: “Tenemos muchas ganas de estar en Ibiza Rocks de nuevo. Hemos tocado dos veces como teloneros así que volver siendo la actuación principal es enorme. El sol brilla y todo el mundo está en modo vacaciones. Los conciertos tienen una gran atmósfera festiva con gente bailando en los balcones de sus habitaciones alrededor del escenario. Es una experiencia única, estás ahí, tan cerca de los fans. Estamos ansiosos por volver”.

La temporada la inaugurará Jake Bugg, nominado recientemente a un premio BRIT al mejor artista emergente británico y es uno de los compositores más aclamados de su generación. Entre los artistas ya confirmados se encuentra Example, que hará un retorno triunfal a las Baleares con su completo show en directo para encabezar conciertos en ambas islas, le teloneará el aclamado DJ y productor Redlight, que exhibirá su nuevo show en directo en Ibiza Rocks. Podría decirse que Foals son el ‘must see’ del momento,  encabezarán la fiesta de clausura en Ibiza Rocks, y serán teloneados por el dúo Jagwar Ma, que desde Sidney, son una de las bandas que no hay que perderse en 2013.

El Grupo Ibiza Rocks, además, se enorgullece de anunciar una nueva colaboración con MTV, para proyectar las actuaciones en directo, entrevistas exclusivas a los artistas y los momentos más importantes de lo que ocurra en las 16 semanas de programación de este verano, emitiendo en MTV Live HD y a través de su canal estrella MTV Music. En total se emitirán 8 shows, con 4 especiales de media hora sobre los artistas de Ibiza Rocks, además de 2 recopilaciones de una hora sobre varios artistas incluyendo una selección de canciones en directo y entrevistas exclusivas. La cobertura también incluirá una secuencia de entrevistas desde Ibiza Rocks House en el Hotel Pikes, el legendario lugar de descanso para las estrellas del rock’n’roll en el que se hospedan nuestras bandas. La productora del contenido será JJ Stereo, empresa londinense ganadora de varios premios.

En las próximas semanas anunciaremos más artistas, bandas y DJs de vanguardia, para que los fans puedan olvidarse de los problemas y el mal tiempo y puedan empezar a pensar en el concierto y las vacaciones de su vida.

Una oferta de alojamiento de calidad a un precio excepcional, Ibiza Rocks cada miércoles desde el 5 de junio al 18 de septiembre. Las confirmaciones hasta el momento son:

FOALS – LOS POTROS DE OXFORD, EN EL CIERRE DE IBIZA ROCKS 2013

Inline image 1

www.ibizarocks.com

Ibiza, 6 de febrero 2013 (FIX Ibiza).- Sol, un alojamiento especial y 16 semanas de las mejores bandas en directo y DJs es la garantía Ibiza Rocks para la próxima temporada de verano 2013. Y el anuncio de Foals como cabeza de cartel del cierre de Ibiza Rocks, lo sostiene.

La banda que lidera Yannis Philipakis ha comenzado con buen pie el 2013, lo cual es razonable. Su tercer trabajo ‘Holy Fire’ -saldrá a la venta la próxima semana- y sus increíbles nuevos singles ‘Inhaler’ y ‘My Number’ han catapultado a la formación a presidir las listas de éxitos de las emisoras de radio musicales, así como protagonizar total atención de festivales, fans y críticas en todo el mundo.

Sus directos por todo Reino Unido han colgado el cartel de aforo completo y memorable fue el concierto en Royal Albert Hall, con todas las entradas vendidas a tan solo 15 minutos de ponerse a la venta. Con todo, Ibiza Rocks está más que orgullosa de dar la bienvenida a Foals, en una fecha, la del cierre, que en ocasiones anteriores protagonizaron otros grandes como Two Door Cinema Club, Noah and the Whale, Klaxons o The Specials, por citar algunos.

Yannis Philippakis dice: “Siempre hemos querido ir a los cierres de Ibiza y ahora, resulta que vamos a tocar en directo en uno. ¡Doble diversión!”.

Foals se une al cartel de Ibiza Rocks 2013 en el que reluce como artista invitado para abrir la ya octava edición del festival, Jake Bugg. Inaugura escenario el próximo miércoles 5 de junio. Con solo 18 añitos ya está nominado en la próxima gala de los BRIT Awards en la categoría de ‘Mejor Artista Revelación’. Su sonido es único y diferente a todo lo que suena en este momento. Uno de los grandes cantantes y compositores de su generación. Otra fecha cerrada es la que compromete a Example para con Ibiza Rocks el 14 de agosto.

Y habrá mucho más, hasta completar una programación de 16 semanas de duración, en el Ibiza Rocks Hotel, los miércoles entre el 5 de junio y el 18 de septiembre de 2013. No tardará en salir a la luz.

El Ibiza Rocks Hotel condensa bajo un mismo techo un peculiar estilo de vida, el de la música de las nuevas generaciones en el entorno perfecto: la isla de Ibiza

Venta de entradas y reservas de hotel ya disponibles a través de la web www.ibizarocks.com.
