Sunday Roast/Play It by Ear Closing Date announced

‘Vamp Rocks’ confirms its return for Halloween

 

(FIX/IBIZA/PR/13 Sept 2013)

Who would have thunk it?! Here we are in September and according to the recent weather, summer definitely seems to be coming to a close. But up atIbiza Rocks House at Pikes Hotel, and as the sign at the front entrance says, it ain’t over till the fat lady sings. And she ain’t singin’ just yet…

After a very successful run on Fridays, Idris Elba finally left our shores to shimmy his way up the red carpets of the international movie world, with the premier of his latest blockbuster, Pacific Rim. Accepting the challenge and the party gauntlet, Smokin’ Jo is the woman responsible for getting the weekend going through the month of September. Last week’s Guest DJs Skin (Skunk Anansie), David Morales, Bones, Andy Carroll and Colin Peters blew the imaginary roof off the House, and this weekan equally smashing line up including none other than Ibiza Rocks House’s old chum Mark Ronson plus Sandy Rivera (Kings of Tomorrow) joining Smokin’ Jo with yet another superstar yet to be announced.

Kicking off at midnight, just as We Are Rockstars comes to a close over at the Ibiza Rocks Hotel, Fridays have gone from strength to strength up at IRH over the summer and don’t look to have any notion of stopping just yet. Our kind of people, our kind of music, our kind of fun…

Moving on to the regular Sunday summer shenanigans and renowned party starter, DJ Antz Bryans, has wowed us all over the last weeks with a line up of guest DJs that have been nothing if not diverse- from much respected DJ Arthur Baker to  Eastenders’ star Patsy Palmer, Disco Don Nigel Atkin, Hugo Heathcote, Jon Sa Trinxa, Colin Peters, Dave Lubin and Justin Field amongst them. With five events to go, our main man is pulling out the sonic stops for this last month of events at the rock n roll hotel of choice. As for the simultaneous Sunday Roast– it’s the perfect choice for these September days; make sure you bring a big appetite. We recommend pre-booking your table (details below). As for the actual Closing Party onSunday October 13, we should probably mention that post-sunset, the evening will turn somewhat all Rocky Horror Picture Show with a screening of the legendary musical with the party continuing on into the wee small hours. Fishnets at the ready, time is fleeting and madness takes its toll…

Which brings us rather neatly to Halloween and, after last year’s successful scariness, we are very excited to announce the return of VAMP ROCKS on31 October. With tickets at 10€, price including a chalice of our finest mead plus a very scary surprise, this is guaranteed to be a night of shrieking good fun all round. No fancy dress, no entrance. DJs on the night include Stray Kitten, Bones and more TBC.

In other news, and following on from the recent Freddie Rocks Fundraiser on 1 Sept, it’s with an enormous amount of pride that we announce that the total raised so far for the Mercury Phoenix Trust at this year’s event is 4,500€ and counting! Massive thanks to all who got involved with the annual hirsute fundraiser- this is one doo that is becoming quite the institution at the house on the hill.

Flag Up the Dates!

FRIDAY 20 SEPT: Smokin’ Jo presents Mark Ronson, Sandy Rivera (Kings of Tomorrow) plus Andy Carroll, Doorly and Ste-V-Something

FREDDIE’S PUTS THE FUN INTO FUNDRAISER!

pikes

ANNUAL EVENT FOR MERCURY PHOENIX TRUST CONFIRMED FOR SUNDAY 1 SEPT AT IBIZA ROCKS HOUSE

BOY GEORGE HOSTS EVENING DEDICATED TO LANCE LOUD IN AID OF HEP-C TRUST, THURS 22 AUG

PLUS 7WALLACE, PLAY IT BY EAR, EL FABULOSO, MUSTACHIO AND IBIZA ROCKS AFTER-PARTIES

(FIX Ibiza/12 Aug 2013):

With Ibiza Rockin’ at full tilt right now, and the island zooming towards the middle of August, it’s always good to know that there’s another world away hidden from the usual midsummer night’s madness, a rock n roll refuge right up there in the San Antonio Hills- yup, it’s Ibiza Rocks House at Pikes Hotel. The legendary agro-rock hotel of choice is a place with its own special magic which, over the next weeks, hosts a plethora of events that, frankly, deserve a big, shiny medal for their diversity, solidarity and sheer fabulousness. Amongst them, a Pikes personal favourite- FREDDIE ROCKS IBIZA- which is back on Sunday 1 September, raising more funds for The Mercury Phoenix Trust in aid of HIV & AIDS patients.

Back for its third year, this is an event with particularly special significance for all at Ibiza Rocks House at Pikes Hotel, dedicated to the hotel’s favourite former ambassador, Queen’s Freddie Mercury. The aim of the party is to not only celebrate what would have been the 67th birthday of the musical legend-in-leotards but also, to raise funds for the Mercury Phoenix Trust, the organization set up by the remaining members of Queen after the sad demise of their frontman. The Mercury Phoenix Trust has been raising millions to fight AIDS worldwide and here at Ibiza Rocks House, we like to add our tuppence worth in honour of the great man whose hedonistic history with Pikes has already gone down in the Ibiza annals.

Freddie Rocks Ibiza_Flyer2013

Due to public demand, this year the fundraiser begins at lunchtime by the Pikes Pool, with Antz & Co in charge of providing the daytime soundtrack for Freddie Rocks Ibiza, setting the mood for the frivolity as the first Freddie Lookie-Likees start pulling up to the sun loungers.Throughout the afternoon and heading into the night, also on the decks, a line up of local and international DJs including the schamazing 2MercuryBJs, Doorly, Wall of Sound’s Mark Jones, Stray Kitten, Andy Carroll and Colin Peters, most of whom have formed part of the Freddie’s Brigade since its beginnings, and all lining up to pay homage through tuneage.

As per every Freddie Rocks Ibiza event, big, hairy moustaches and/or other related Freddie get-up is pretty much essential- you know we love a theme. Fake Freddie facial hair will be available for purchase on entry, money also going to the charity. Last year’s event managed to raise some 4000€ for the cause; lets see if we can’t top that on Sunday 1 September and do dear Freddie proud on his heavenly cloud.

Important to note, guests also have the option to grab a table and fill up on the Ibiza Rocks House famous Sunday Roast pre- getting their groove on. Between that and the Poolside Menu, perfect fodder for pre-Freddie-Frivolity.

OTHER EVENTS COMING UP in AUGUST at IBIZA ROCKS HOUSE AT PIKES HOTEL:

IDRIS ELBA presents 7WALLACE

Friday 16 & 23 Aug

Idris Elba

Right up there with Ibiza’s Coolest Parties of 2013, 7Wallace has proved to be the party of choice for anyone with half a brain and, if they’re lucky, a direct line to the event’s exclusive guest list. Four down, two more to go, so far the star of stage, screen and now, the Ibiza Rocks House DJ booth, Idris Elba, has taken Fridays and the Ibiza Rocks after-parties to a whole new level. Most recognised for his starring roles in mega-series Luther and The Wire, British actor Elba is also currently premiering his new blockbuster, Pacific Rim, around the globe, squeezing in slots on the red carpets between his six summer appearances at Pikes. With special surprise guests including Pete Tong, Elba proves that, apart from his skills in front of the camera, he sure knows how to throw a party.

Idris Elba said: “The 7 Wallace parties are intimate and understated. There’s no huge club, just a really cool house party vibe. Ibiza Rocks House is perfect- unique, charming, full of character and seeped in music history. I’ve never experienced anywhere like it. It’s a hidden gem in the hills, a place where magical moments just happen naturally and interesting people are drawn in…”

It certainly doesn’t take much detective work to deduce that 7Wallace at Ibiza Rocks House at Pikes is the party of choice. Case Closed.

EL FABULOSO 3rd BIRTHDAY

SAT 17 AUG, FROM 5PM

1001088_10152454162020616_1437678988_n

 Another summer special returns to the hotel in the next days, Spain’s notoriously naughty EL FABULOSO shindig, celebrating it’s 3rdanniversary on the White Island and brought to us by a good time girl with old skool class- Silvia Superstar and her fabulous crew. Silvia is, in her own right, a bit of a household name over on the mainland, as singer and musician, model, promoter and all round rock chick who plays an important role in Madrid’s music scene and also, pops up occasionally on MTV’s Alaska & Mario, a reality programme based on the life of one of Spain’s most influential female musicians and front woman of Fangoria, Olvido Gara Jova aka Alaska.

DJs joining la Superstar in the DJ booth this Saturday 17 Aug are confirmed as Carlos Areces (reputed Spanish actor who has recently starred in the films of both Almodovar and Alex de la Iglesia), Vinila von Bismarck (Spanish Burlesque Queen, singer and DJ) and Ibiza’s own Colin Peters (rockmeister extraordinaire, Ibiza Rocks resident DJ and the island’s sharpest dresser). If this year is anything like previous editions of El Fabuloso, we are in for one blast of a day/night. Spain is different- and so are its party people…

Entrance to this event is by way of guest list only, by sending names and contact details to the El Fabuloso Facebook page:

BOY GEORGE PRESENTS ‘LANCE LOUD- A DEATH IN AN AMERICAN FAMILY’

THURS 22 AUG, 7.30pm

543795_484723198280810_306056511_n

Back on the solidarity tip, Ibiza Rocks House is delighted to welcome music industry icon Boy George to Ibiza Rocks House on Thursday 22 August to present a multi-media insight into the life and times of  American TV star and underground hero Lance Loud. The aim of the event is to celebrate Loud’s ife whilst simultaneously raising awareness of HIV and hepatitis C co-infection, of which Lance Loud eventually died. The screening of Lance Loud! A Death in An American Family (2003, 60 min) is well worth a watch and will be followed by a discussion with Hepatitis C Trust patron Boy George. Reinforcing the notion of ‘what not to share’, this event touches  on a serious subject whilst keeping it very, very real.
