IR House at Pikes master logo 20cm def

Smokin’ Jo toma las riendas de los viernes en Ibiza Rocks House, mientras que the Sunday Roast con DJ Antz continúa hasta el 13 de octubre, fecha del cierre oficial 

Ibiza, lunes 16 de Septiembre (FIX Ibiza).- Freddie Rocks Ibiza, la cita anual de Ibiza Rocks House at Pikes Hotel que recuerda el aniversario del nacimiento del artista, recaudó el pasado 1 de septiembre 4.500 euros que irán destinados a The Mercury Phoenix Trust, la asociación que formaron en 1991, tras la muerte de Mercury, el manager y el resto de componentes de la banda que lideraba, Queen, y que trabaja por la lucha contra el sida en todo el mundo.

Por otra parte, y hasta el cierre oficial del legendario hotel, quedan por delante algunas citas importantes. Septiembre y octubre son buenos meses para disfrutar de la isla y desde Ibiza Rocks House at Pikes Hotel bien lo saben. La exitosa residencia del actor Idris Elba de los viernes llegó a su fin pero las noches no se han quedado vacías. Desde ahora y con Smokin’ Jo como alma de la fiesta, el viernes 20 de septiembre la celebración sigue, con grandes cabezas de cartel entre los que se encuentran Skin (Skunk Anansie), David Morales, Bones, Andy Carrol o Colin Peters, desde medianoche, en Ibiza Rocks House.

Continúa además una de las citas clásicas del Ibiza Rocks House at Pikes Hotel. Los domingos, el mejor asado tradicional británico se sirve junto a DJ Antz Bryans y sus amigos. Por Play it by Ear ya han pasado figuras respetadas como Arthur Baker, Patsy Palmer, Disco Don Nigel Atkin, Hugo Heathcote, Jon Sa Trinxa, Colin Peters, Dave Lubin o Justin Field, entre muchos otros. Hasta el día de su cierre, el domingo 13 de octubre, cierre oficial de Ibiza Rocks Hpuse at Pikes Hotel, aún quedan cuatro citas imprescindibles. Volviendo al ‘closing’, matizar que será un día muy Rocky Horror Picture Show, con la proyección de este fabuloso musical y otras sorpresas.

Y cuando Ibiza se queda tranquila y los alrededores de Ibiza Rocks House oscurecen temprano, llega Halloween. El Hotel despierta de la siesta y celebra la segunda edición de Vamp Rocks la noche del 31 de octubre. La única condición: si no te disfrazas, no entras. Djs confirmados hasta ahora, incluyen a Stray Kitten y Bones. Próximamente, más info.

SEPTEMBER ROCKS THE HOUSE

IR House at Pikes master logo 20cm def

Smokin’ Jo takes over Fridays with this week’s guest DJs including Mark Ronson + Sandy Rivera (Kings of Tomorrow) + more TBC

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.

IBIZA ROCKS HOUSE SET TO HOST HORRIFIC HALLOWEEN HOOLEY ON WEDS 31ST OCTOBER , FROM 10pm

DOOR CHARGE OF 10€ INCLUDES PUMPKIN SOUP, A TRICK OR TREAT, A GOBLET OF WITCHES BREW AND A NAUGHTY NIGHT OF FREAKY FUN, SCARY STORIES, MONSTER MUSIC AND DEVILISH DANCING

DJS COLIN PETERS, STRAY KITTEN, LUIS MARTIN & MAGICAL MYSTERY GUESTS PROVIDING THE TERRORIFIC TUNES

Halloween is nearly here- and in our book, that simply screams party! So, it seems only fitting that we transform Ibiza Rocks House into a Haunted House on the Hill and fill it with our favourite boys and ghouls for a night of bloody good fun…Get your gore on for VAMP!

Here’s the cunning plan:

We’ll kick off the vamptastic plan at 10pm by inviting you to a scrummy bowl of homemade pumpkin soup to line our little zombie bellies, whilst on the big screen, expect Rocky Horror, Teen Wolf, Lost Boys, Nightmare on Elm Street and other stuff to make you shiver…

After that preliminary spooking, it’s a sup from the gnarly witch’s tit for all who dare…our special magic potion, carefully concocted by senior members of the coven, sure to get the blood flowing in all the right places. Just right for fright night frolics…

Next up, take a wander through the zombie zone, delve into the trick or treat glory hole, attempt to bob an apple from the bloodbath; just some of the spooky surprises we’re planning amongst the Halloween games.

Of course, it goes without saying that we want you to shake your old bones in Freddie (Kruger)’s Bar and so, providing the scary soundtrack, DJs Colin Peters and Stray Kitten will be joined by some magical mystery guests…

As far as dress code, it’s a no-brainer. It’s Halloween. Think vampires, werewolves, faeries, witches, ghouls, ghosts, zombies, monsters, mynaeds, shape shifters, spooks, blood, gore, guts, spiders, spells and supernaturals- you get the idea- all the stuff that Halloween is made of! But there are no limits- as long as you’ve made an effort, that’s the spirit and special spooky souvenirs will be presented to the best of the lot..

Getting In:

10€ in advance/on the door includes your pumpkin soup, your trick or treat, a goblet of witches brew and a Halloween you won’t forget in a hurry.

Places are limited so do confirm if possible…

WHAT: ‘VAMP’- a night of Halloween Hoots and Ghastly Goings on..

KEEPING FREDDIE’S FLAME ALIVE

 Image

The second annual Ibiza ‘Freddie for a Day’ Fundraiser for the Mercury Phoenix Trust is confirmed for Sunday 2nd September

 

Special guests confirmed include 2Mercury BJs, Mark Jones, Lottie, Andy Carroll, Colin Peters, Stray Kitten and Grayson Shipley plus a VERY SPECIAL GUEST with a special live performance from Wall of Sound’s hotly tipped next best thing, BB and upcoming band, Visitors. 

The date of the event coincides with what would have been the Queen front man’s 66th birthday.

Ibiza//FIX Ibiza//30 Aug 2012

Just when you thought you couldn’t possibly squeeze any more fun into your summer, Ibiza Rocks proves you wrong once again. Following on from the success of last year’s ‘Freddie for a Day’ charity fundraiser at Ibiza Rocks House, Mark Jones & his Wall of Sound crew are back for more fun and nonsense, all in the best possible taste, and all for a great cause- The Mercury Phoenix Trust- that wonderful legacy left to us by international music icon, Freddie Mercury, not to mention the fellow members of his supergroup- Queen.

Sunday, 2nd September is the date confirmed for the event, with the early part of the day set aside for munchin’ and a-minglin’ alongside the traditional Sunday Roast from 2pm. A spot of lunch, a dip in the hotel’s famous pool, a quick snooze and it’s time to get togs on and ‘tashed up for what is set to be yet one more magic moment in the annals of Ibiza Rocks history.

As per last year, organiser Mark Jones, Wall of Sound main man, has put together a line up that really stands out from the Ibiza crowd. As well as DJs including Lottie, Andy Carroll, Colin Peters, Stray Kitten and Grayson Shipley, get set for three headlining guest DJs SO special we are not even allowed to announce it. But hear this, you’d be mental to miss it…

And then there are the live elements of the event. Ibiza Rocks House are pleased to present an exclusive performance from UK band, Visitors, as well as, brought to us by Wall Of Sound, BB. Hotly tipped as the next best thing. BB were formed after a chance meeting at the BBC Introducing Master Class of 2011 at Abbey Road Studios. Singer Billy Wright & drummer Robert Gulston immediately bonded over a passion for pop songs, dance music and exciting live shows. After locking themselves away in a studio in their hometown of Southend, the duo honed their writing formula and emerged in 2012 with a galvanised sound and a live show that combines euphoric samples, thumping drums, explosive guitars and insanely catchy melodies. They are currently adding the final touches to their debut album.

Asked about their upcoming gig at Ibiza Rocks House and BB had this to say: “Freddie was the kind of musician you wanted to be from the first time you picked up a mic or sat down to write a song. There was something magnetic about his performances, he had thousands of people in the palm of his hand…No one has come close since. So when you get asked to go to Ibiza and pay tribute to Freddie, you go!”

Bearing in mind at all times that this is a fundraising event, party goers are asked to seriously get involved! As well as encouraging as many Freddie lookie-likees as possible on the night, organisers stressed that the easiest way to make a contribution to the cause was by purchasing your Freddie Moustache on entrance to Ibiza Rocks House, with all proceeds going directly to the Mercury Phoenix Trust.

From the depths of his dressing up box, in the search for his Freddie costume, no doubt, Mark Jones piped up that “after last years’ crazy scenes and amazing night of fun-fun-fun it seems only right to press play and pay homage to Freddie again with Ibiza Rocks House / Pikes Hotel as the incredible setting.Bringing to light the creative genius and talent of Mr. Mercury to Ibiza is a real honour..

We Will, We Will Rock You ! ”

About the Charity:

Freddie Mercury died of AIDS related causes in London on 24th November 1991. Almost immediately after, the remaining members of Queen and Jim Beach, the band’s manager, took the decision to raise money and awareness about AIDS in his memory. Together they organised the 1992 Freddie Mercury Tribute Concert for AIDS Awareness. The Mercury Phoenix Trust was founded to distribute the monies raised from this concert and it has continued to be engaged in numerous other fundraising activities.

Since 1992 the Mercury Phoenix Trust has been responsible for donating more than $15 million in the fight against AIDS making over 750 grants to charities worldwide. Applications for grants have come in from many countries around the world and collaboration has been realised with groups as far removed as the World Health Organisation to grass-root organisations run partly by voluntary workers in Uganda, Kenya, South Africa, Zambia, Nepal and India. The Trust has adapted its policy to concentrate on HIV/AIDS education and awareness in the developing world.

The legend of Pikes Hotel.

When it comes to rock n roll anecdotes, Freddie Mercury’s fame where Pikes Hotel is concerned is legendary. A regular fixture of the hotel, he was a close friend of the hotel’s original owner Tony Pike ‘back in the day’ and as the story so famously goes, Mercury celebrated his 41st birthday at the hidden hotel; a party that lasted for days and spawned many of the aforementioned anecdotes.

These days, and although the world is a less flamboyant place since the passing of the Queen vocalist, his memory lives on at Ibiza Rocks House at Pikes, not least through the Freddie Suite at Ibiza Rocks House; an enormous room, the centre of hedonism and happy times during Freddie’s reign, now converted into one of the island’s nocturnal hot-spots for those in the know. Lovingly restored under the ownership and careful direction of Ibiza’s foremost live music promoters, Andy McKay and Dawn Hindle. Ibiza Rocks House at Pikes continues to celebrate Freddie’s free spirit and zest for life.

As a final point to note, with the date of the event so close to what would have been Freddie Mercury’s 66th birthday, the aim of the event is to celebrate the life and times of one of the best, whilst raising funds to help those affected by what took him from us.

Because ‘these are the days of our lives…’ Lets make it a suitable homage to the King of Queen…
