BHS Logo_crop URBAN IN IBIZA CONFIRMED FOR 2ND AUG

BHS’ 1ST COMPILATION CD LAUNCH CONFIRMED FOR 4TH AUG

LO CURA LOUNGE GOES FROM STRENGTH TO STRENGTH

 

(CAN FIX/IBIZA/22 JULY 2014)

Knee-deep in the throes of summer and it’s all go at the Boutique Hostal Salinas with their weekly events growing in size by the week and a number of new and exciting additions to the calendar confirmed for July and August.

First up, and it is indeed a first for the BHS, as one of the island’s most reputable events, Urban in Ibiza, confirms its appearance at the Salinas hotspot on the 2nd August. Now in its sixth year on the island, the art/fashion/music extravaganza has been credited with bringing a steady selection of the world’s best street artists to Ibiza and as far as the event at the Boutique Hostal Salinas is concerned, names currently being bandied about include Inkie, Elmo Hood and Dan Kitchener with more to be confirmed in the run up to the street art spectacle at Salinas. With a following that includes both junior and senior aficionados of graffiti and all that that entails, the Urban in Ibiza warm-up event at the BHS is a chance to see first-hand how its done with live painting from the artists included in the programme. An absolute must for your Ibiza calendar.

As far as the BHS’ baby, Lo Cura Lounge, is concerned, things in that department have been going from great to greater with Fridays and Sundays both dedicated to the spin-off project and both gatherings encompassing that ‘real Ibiza feeling’ that many strive to create but few manage to pull off. Andrew Livesey, Chief Fixer at We Love…Space (the venue for the Sunday get togethers), summed it up rather succinctly, saying: “The Lo Cura crew have managed to do, in various venues on the island, what many before them have tried and failed to do: – they create an atmosphere, vibe and party that is greater than the sum of all its parts. Their bar in Ibiza town was my favourite in the world and the Boutique Hostal Salinas is my current favourite place to hang out on the island, not to mention that the Lo Cura Lounge takeovers of El Salon at We Love …Space are the best parties that that room has ever seen”. The next date set for that El Salon takeover is 17 Aug when the Lo Cura crew join forces with Italian sensations, Souldrops, stepping up to the platos.

Meanwhile, back at the ranch, or rather the BHS terrace, the Once Upon a Time market has been inundated with new local and international designers and artisans setting up stall every Sunday from 6-11pm, amongst them Holga Garrosa, Evita Puch, Jahaira Cobeña and Die As Trash. With DJ Daisy Heartbreaker providing the music to shop by and many visitors availing of lunch in the restaurant at the same time, Sundays are really rather special at the Boutique Hostal Salinas.

Speaking of lunch and back in the kitchen, and the new concept restaurant, La Marisquería at Boutique Hostal Salinas, continues to climb the scale of culinary greatness with its predominantly seafood menu proving a success amongst resident guests and locals alike. But it’s not just the shellfish that is proving popular with chef Anxelinho Ares’ meat dishes also going down a treat and in particular, huge numbers of the House Burger have been breaking all records as word on that spreads across the island. As an added incentive, the restaurant also hosts Special Saturdays with Lobster & Chips at 35€pp and Tuesday Treats with La Mariscada fish plate at 45€pp.

Back in the boogie bit of the Boutique, and a special nod this week to Bruno from Ibiza and Angel Cielo’s party, Sunshine People, which this week brings in some very special guests from Brazil in the shape of acclaimed DJ duo MartJaz, flown in fresh from the football fever and ready to have a ball of a different kind this Thursday 24th July from 7pm at the BHS. Sunshine People shows no sign of stopping till the end of the season, with special guests announced weekly.

MARTJAZ

And finally, for this time round, and it’s been a while since we last mentioned it but it’s with great pleasure that we can finally confirm the release date of the BHS’ very first compilation CD, aptly titled the ‘Boutique Hostal Salinas Ibiza Summer Sessions’ out on the Seamless Recordings label and due to hit the streets on 4th August. The three discs of awesomeness, lovingly put together by BHS co-owner and Ibiza resident DJ, David Phillips with a helping hand from PBR Streetgang (aka the very versatile DJ duo Bonar Bradberry and Tom Thorpe- fans, friends and fixtures of the Boutique Hostal Salinas) is a clever combo of down tempo, nu disco and deep house and features tracks from the likes of Goldfrapp, DFA, Pyschemagik, Nancy Wang, Bonar Bradberry, PBR Streetgang, Art of Tones, John Talabot, Prins Thomas and Ewan Pearson.

Aforementioned David Phillips, was last reported to be beside himself with joy at the long awaited arrival of the CD saying, “For years and years I’ve seen compilation after compilation come out and wondered why the hell we never brought out our own. Here’s what we hope to be the first of many!”

The CD will also be available to download online but meanwhile, for your media lugholes only, here’s a taster of what’s in store:

https://soundcloud.com/seamless-recordings/bhs-mini-mix-3

https://soundcloud.com/seamless-recordings/bhs-mini-mix-21

https://soundcloud.com/seamless-recordings/bhs-mini-mix-11

All in all then, as the trusty threesome* behind the BHS prepare to break the back of summer, seems like they’re doing a damned fine job thus far of creating one more memorable medley of a season at the Boutique Hostal Salinas.

Jake Bugg by la skimal01

IBIZA ROCKS OPENING : JUNE 5th w/ JAKE BUGG & FINDLAY
:

Already nominated in the ‘British Breakthrough Act’ category at this year’s Brit Awards, and at only 19 years old, Jake Bugg has already been hailed as the next Bob Dylan although his sound and sentiment are distinctly unique to him and him alone.  Championed by Rocks music director Zane Lowe, Jake played a support slot at Ibiza Rocks last season so it made perfect sense to bring him back to headline this summer. One of the best singer songwriters out there right now, it’s a total pleasure to have him open this 8th season of Ibiza Rocks.  Warming up for Bugg, we welcome new rock sensation Findlay.

http://www.ibizarocks.com/events/all-events/ibiza-rocks-opening-party-with-jake-bugg/

WEDNESDAY 12th JUNE  w/ RIZZLE KICKS & AMPLIFY DOT

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.

“We can’t wait to play Ibiza Rocks again.  We’ve supported twice so being back to headline is going to huge. The sun is shining and everyone is in holiday mode.  The gigs have a real party atmosphere with people dancing on their bedroom balconies all around the stage.  It’s a pretty unique experience…you really get up close to the fans and we cant wait to get back”

This second gig of the Ibiza Rocks summer also has Amplify Dot on the bill, a talented rapper who first picked up the mic at the age of 13. As always, Ibiza Rocks bringing the very best in new talent to the island, ready for you to discover in the heart of San Antonio.

WEDNESDAY 19TH JUNE: w/ THE VACCINES & PALMA VIOLETS

Since performing at Ibiza Rocks in 2011 just as they released their debut album, London indie-rock outfitThe 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.”

http://www.ibizarocks.com/events/all-events/ibiza-rocks-with-the-vaccines/

WEDNESDAY 26TH JUNE: w/ BASTILLE & THE OTHER TRIBE

Bastille’s just released debut album Bad Blood went straight to the top of the UK album charts, with No.2 single Pompeii taking over the airwaves across Europe. Fronted by UK singer/songwriter Dan Smith, this is a ‘must see’ live act on the festival scene this summer and Ibiza Rocks is delighted to have Bastille on the bill.  Support comes from hotly tipped and indefinable Bristol mob The Other Tribe.  Championed by both indie and electronic music lovers, the band cross musical boundaries and their illustrious new singleSkirts is as infectious as their live set.

Bastille’s Dan Smith saidWe’re really looking forward to getting out to Ibiza for the first time. Being able to play a gig and then go to the beach will be a massive novelty, and it’ll be nice to see a bit of proper summer and try to head to some of the massive clubs as well. I hear the Ibiza Rocks gigs are great and we’ve been told they throw a pretty decent party so it should be a lot of fun.”

WE ARE ROCKSTARS!

  

W.A.R JUNE PROGRAMME JUNE 2013:

The electronic fuelled, DJ led night that sees an incredible mix of the most influential and exciting names in electronic music take over the famous outdoor ‘Rocks’ stage every Friday.

We’re excited to announce that kicking off the first W.A.R! of the summer with a massive headline set will be master of new music, superstar DJ and long-term friend and champion of Ibiza Rocks, Zane Lowe. Together with his partner in crime Mark Ronson, Zane was a huge driving force behind the launch of W.A.R! last year and this June is coming back to kick off another sun-soaked, electric summer.

Joining Zane for a night to remember on the Rocks stage is Philadelphia DJ, Producer and online sensation Baauer. As well as producing remixes for the likes of Nero and The Prodigy, Baauer’s own masterpieces have really made this man stand out.  Criticallly acclaimed single Harlem Shake caused a massive viral explosion resulting in thousands of Youtube uploads per day and a subsequent No.1 US single. Now collaborating with hip-hop superproducer Just Blaze on the massive track Higher, the pair has just completed a joint tour. It will be a big night when Baauer hits up the Balearics for his debut at the W.A.R! Opening Party in June.

Finally (to complete this stellar Opening Party line up) is a man that needs no introduction to the Rocks crowd. After a winter playing the biggest electronic festivals across the world, hosting on Rinse FM and releasing music on Diplo’s Mad Decent label we can confirm that long-time Rocks resident, and now global superstar DJ, Doorly is back in Ibiza this summer and ready for W.A.R! starting with what will surely be an Opening Party set to remember.

ANOTHER GIANT CHEQUE FROM ANTZ & CO FOR THE AECC + HIDDEN OPENING 1 JUNE

Image

ANOTHER GIANT CHEQUE FROM ANTZ & CO FOR THE AECC!!

AECC IBIZA VICE-PRESIDENT RECEIVES 1, 215€- PROCEEDS OF HIDDEN BAR’S EASTER FAYRE

ANTZ’ OTHER RECENT CHARITY COLLABORATIONS INCLUDE THE TEENAGE CANCER TRUST CONTEMPORARY ART AUCTION+  ‘GET TESTED’ AT IBIZA ROCKS HOUSE AT PIKES

ANTZ BACK BEHIND THE DECKS AT HIDDEN’S OPENING PARTY ON JUNE 1 + IBIZA CHARITY POLO CUP ON JUNE 8

Image

(FIX/IBIZA/30TH MAY 2013):  With summer lurking somewhere around here and Ibiza officially ‘open’, Ibiza resident, charity worker and all round good guy, Anthony ‘Antz’ Bryans, is a DJ who’s been popping up all over the place doing his bit to help from behind the scenes and not to mention, from behind the decks.

This week, Antz was reunited with Vice President of the Ibiza & Formentera delegation of the Spanish Association Against Cancer (AECC), Sue Mari, for the handover of monies raised at Hidden Bar’s recent Easter Fayre/AECC fundraiser, co-organised with Hidden’s owners Amanda Blanch and Chris Edwardes as well as local promoter Mitch Clark. A total of 1,215€ was raised at the event which took place at Cala San Vicente’s coolest little wonderland, Hidden, some weeks ago. Organisers thanked everyone involved in making the Easter Fayre such a success and promised news of further fundraisers in the near future. Asked to comment on the latest donation, Sue Mari said, “The local cancer association, AECC, is delighted with the response from foreign residents on the island to help raise funds that enable us to carry out our work helping cancer patients in Ibiza and Formentera. On behalf of the AECC, we’d like to give special thanks to Jill Canney and DJ Antz for setting the wheels in motion.”

Image

Antz’ next collaboration for the AECC takes place on Saturday June 8 at the Ibiza Charity Polo Cup where he’ll be joined by some very special guests; promising to put the party into polo, after a day of tournament and equestrian entertainment in the latest eventl in aid of the AECC. The Ibiza Charity Polo Cup, organised by local company, Ibiza Delivers, and taking place at the Ibiza Polo Club in Sant Joan, plans to raise both funds and awareness for the local cancer organisation and has confirmed the presence of international players Andrew Hine, Nic Roldan, Jaime Espinosa de los Monteros and Anoushka Bahlsen at the Ibiza Polo Club for the fundraiser. Models Poppy and sister Cara Delevingne are amongst the familiar faces confirmed to attend this first initiative from Ibiza Delivers in the raising of funds for local cancer patients.

Bryans also recently played his role- and his best records- at the Teenage Cancer Trust’s Contemporary Art Auction in London on 15 May, alongside fellow collaborators, Groove Armada with guests that included art lovers Bobby Gillespie & Katy England, Jude Law, Richard Bacon, Tom Parker Bowles, Sean Pertwee, Charlotte Tilbury, Ruth Wilson, Lara Bohinc, Nancy Dell’Olio, Nicholas Kirkwood, Willa Keswick, Amber Jackson, Jeff Wootton, Dan Macmillan, packed into the Groucho Club to help raise a grand total of £100,000 for the charity, The auction was a warm up for the Ibiza Summer Party in aid of Teenage Cancer Trust.

And finally, last Sunday 26th May and Antz’ weekly Sunday residency, ‘Play It By Ear’ welcomed the ‘Get Tested’organization to Ibiza Rocks House at Pikes, where amongst other efforts, a select number of art pieces donated by Urban In Ibiza’s Paul ‘Dizzi Saunders’ went under the hammer for the Hep C Trust. A total of 3000€ was raised for the charity on the day.

Back to this weekend, Saturday 1 and our Anthony is back up at Hidden to ceremoniously open their doors for the summer season, in a party that promises to live up to Hidden’s fast going reputation as being the best destination venue in San Vicente.  Open midday till midnight, Antz on the decks, amazing cocktails, delicious food, kids’ area and crazy golf all happening just 50ms from the seashore.

And that’s not even the start of it for this DJ’s summer schedule. More updates coming soon on where to catch Anthony Antz Bryans- so good they named him twice…

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:

FOALS TO SET IBIZA ON HOLY FIRE AT THE CLOSING PARTY OF IBIZA ROCKS 2013

mail

 www.ibizarocks.com

 

Getting back in the saddle for another season, folks and it’s with great pleasure that we bring you our first Ibiza Rocks related news of 2013..and what good news it is too, with five piece and festival favourite, FOALS confirmed to bring the Rocks season to a close, in this, the 8th year of the island’s leading live music brand

Ibiza, 6th February 2013 (FIX Ibiza).- 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.  Bands don’t get much hotter right now than festival favourites Foals – the phenomenal five-piece that will headline the Ibiza Rocks Closing Party on Wednesday 18th September.

To say that Yannis Phillipakis and co. have got off to a good start in 2013 is a huge understatement. With their hotly anticipated third studio album ‘Holy Fire’ set for release next week, the incredible new singles ‘Inhaler’ and  ‘My Number’ have catapulted the band onto the radio A-list and caught the attention of festivals, fans and critics across the globe.

As well as a critically acclaimed new album in the pipeline, Foals also boast a stunning live show that has packed venues around the UK including two colossal shows at London’s Royal Albert Hall which sold out in just 15 minutes. With this sort of momentum behind them, Ibiza Rocks is hugely excited to welcome Foals to the famous open-air Rocks stage for the coveted closing party slot, previously played by Two Door Cinema Club, Noah and the Whale, Klaxons and The Specials, to name a few.

SAYDIBELLE’S INTERNSHIP FOR FIX IBIZA …SO FAR!

5 months down the line, doing an internship with FIX IBIZA… a well-known PR and Events Management company.  I have decided to write a blog to tell you how it’s going!

 So, how did I get to where I am now!?

Well, it all started last summer, when I was thinking about university choices and my current work experiences… having just moved to Ibiza and with a passion for Media, I decided I wanted to expand my knowledge and see what was out there for me in my new stomping ground of  Ibiza, and that’s when  I got the chance to help at FIX IBIZA… those 2 weeks work experience jam-packed with  events including Ibiza Rocks, Rock ‘N’ Mola and Els Dissabtes Al Mercat Vell showed me what its really like to be part of a PR and Events Management company; and changed my perception on what I wanted to do with my life…

WHICH CHOICE SHOULD I MAKE , UNIVERSITY OR GAP YEAR/ EXPERIENCE?

So, I decided to take a gap year and here I am… I asked FIX IBIZA if they wouldn’t mind taking me on as an intern for a year after I had finished my A-levels, with absolute delight and without hesitation they accepted…

End of June …a step into the real world of work, but… a new, exciting, miraculous experience adventure began…

Jillian once posted to me a quote from ’10 things you should expect in your first PR Job’ … “ When someone says expect the unexpected, slap them in the face and say you didn’t expect that did you?”  Even though this made me laugh, it reflected that I must ‘expect the unexpected’  and face challenges, but that’s what I need …to face any fears and expand my skills.  As tennis player, Arthur Ashe once said; “Start where you are, use what you have, do what you can” …

My first taster of the crazy summer ahead with FIX was the Grand Opening of Ocean Beach Club, whose motto proclaimed, ‘A New Era for San Antonio’ . Assisting at the door with the press was a great way for me to communicate and to build up my confidence… Apart from working , there was also time to be able to enjoy the event, so there I was sitting in VIP with free drinks and classic tunes blaring out from the DJ booth……what more could an 18 year old girl want!? Seriously though, being a part the organisation of such an event and then attending  … I knew I had taken the right choice and would have one hell of a great time ahead…

Secondly, the well-known enterprise Ibiza Rocks. As well as promoting each event, by doing social media updates on Twitter and Facebook, I attended each event FIX IBIZA went to, these were: Ed Sheeran , The Maccabees, Kaiser Chiefs, Ben Howard, Kasabian, Major Lazer, Happy Mondays, Bloc Party, Two Door Cinema Club  and Mark Ronson and Zane Lowe’ … what an experience that was, It was great watching live concerts and getting to know the local press. Chatting to them and finding out what they do was a real insight (Ade Harris, Claire Bradley  (Ibiza-Blog), Mc Crackin(Ibiza Spotlight) Johnny Lee (MixMag/Sundance),Mike Parry (Lucky life TV) and many others.

To get a different aspect of being at the event, working wise, FIX set me up at the closing event with a press pass meaning I could take pictures within press boundaries, which I thoroughly enjoyed! … Not only that, there was an after party at the lovely and unique hotel, ‘Ibiza Rocks House at Pikes’, which I had never really been to before, so it was a great, relaxed, fun experience ! One thing which I will not forget is having a good chit chat to Mark Ronson in Freddie’s Bar ( + picture taken!) …


Throughout the summer ( June- August) a new event was bought to the island from England ‘UK’s biggest indie night’ ‘PROPAGANDA’ which was held at Sankeys and then at Es Paradis… I loved it…it was perfect for my age group,   the music was absolutely great , with DJ’s such as Matt Horne and Nick Grimshaw  from Radio 1 … Meeting Matt Horne aka Gavin from ‘ Gavin and Stacey’ was fun!


Urban in Ibiza (Atzaro) … the coolest urban art I have seen, featuring pieces from Goldie (Goldie himself was even there!) … There was such a nice atmosphere … Live graffiti artists, fashion show, live music… chill out area … superb… being able to help organise the event was an eye-opener, seeing what really goes on with such a big event was really useful, with so many different things going on, it really was magical.


The last event, which I went to in the summer season, was again held at the unique hotel ‘Ibiza Rocks House at Pikes’ – Govert de Roos. This event was a talk, from de Roos himself, a legendary  Rock ‘N’ Roll photographer from Holland. The outcome was a lovely relaxed and interesting evening, with an exhibition of his work, in which you got a real insight of his life and how he got to where he is now… kind of what I’m doing now, but not as extreme !!


Apart from all these wonderful experiences, I have also been in charge of compiling all the Dossiers for each event, which is time consuming but interesting -getting familiar with all the clients and keeping up with media issues, creating a mighty fine database of all FIX IBIZA’S clients, helping out with some press releases, keeping up to date with each event and promoting well known DJs such as ANTZ, assisting at interviews with Goldie and  Govert de Roos, plus general office assistance…

Now that summer 2012 has ended and winter 2012 has come upon us, the last event which was held was the first ever Halloween at Ibiza Rocks House at Pikes Hotel- ‘VAMP‘… this was extremely fun to organise, making homemade decorations of ghosts and witches legs… sadly I was unable to attend… it looked incredible and I have read great reviews of what an amazing evening everyone had…VAMPIFIED indeed!

Writing this blog, I would like to thank Jillian and Elena considerably for letting me have this opportunity, already it has been seriously, once in a life time experience , couldn’t of imagined this time a year a go I would have been doing this! … Not only have I had all these great experiences but Jillian and Elena have made me feel very welcome and even though they are my super cool bosses, they are  friends too… there have been some funny times…

It is only November and I have many more adventures to come … I cannot wait to see what lies ahead for the upcoming winter and 2013  … I have learnt already heaps … Thanks a million guys… BRING IT ON!!!

One Hope, One Quest

Well, well, well, here we are in 2011, and at FIX Ibiza , we are just welcoming the year ahead with open arms.
With the first of our New Year’s Resolutions already up and running- that is, the writing of this very blog, we are off to a good start.
And whilst my most cari darlin’ friend and business partner Elena Toga Sanchez has already given you the lowdown in Spanish on FIX as a PR Consultancy company, I guess it’s down to me, the other half-Jillian Maria Canney- to do the same in English.
In a nutshell, FIX Ibiza is the result of a chance meeting between two wee party animals on a random night out back in 2004. One of them(La Irlandesa) was DJing at the time- moi- the other(La Española) was jumping about like a bloody lunatic to an all time classic, Roots Manuva’s ‘Witness the Fitness’. And there it was, the tune that brought us together.

It was to be the start of a beautiful friendship, one which went on to culminate in the Fix Two running their own party- GIRLZ SKOOL- for several years in venues across Ibiza and further afield.
But then, the time came to get really serious, and we decided to take our cojones in our hands, metaphorically speaking of course, and set ourselves up as a legit PR &Events company. The culmination of our work experience until that point seemed to suggest that many of the necessary ingredients were already in place for such a mission- now, all we needed was the business acumen.
I had already been working for our first client- Ibiza Rocks-for a few years when we took the plunge to set up FIX and it was with great pleasure then, that the live music brand became the very first project that we got our teeth stuck into.
As far as that one goes, and since that time, we have managed the PR and Communication for Ibiza Rocks, placing it firmly on the media map as the island’s most talked about brand. As part of our role within that, we have also successfully managed to convince the local authorities that here was something that could help turn around the press-led negative image of San Antonio, the town in which the events take place.Time went on to prove just that, culminating in the San Antonio Town Hall selecting Ibiza Rocks as one of two of the most interesting offers to be showcased at the recent World Travel Market in London. No mean feat. We’re very proud!

Since those early days, our client-base has steadily increased, working with not only local brands but also with those from U.K and further afield whose end game is to have a presence on the island of Ibiza.
Amongst other campaigns and/or events that we have rather successfully managed, we can quote XBox, MTV, Mallorca Rocks, Manumission, Pure Form, The Barefoot Doctor, Carl Cox & Friends, Urban in Ibiza, Ibiza Town Hall, Sant Joan Municipality, Guru Josh Art, Dance 4Life, Can Rich Hierbas Ibicencas, Joves Empresaris, EarthDance/EarthRun, Ibiza Music Cluster and Casas Rurales de Sant Joan. Amongst a few….

So, three years down the line and we are rather pleased with our progression. And as we storm, PR guns a blazing into 2011, we can only hope that that progression continues to develop at the happy pace in which it already has.
We hope that, through this blog, we can begin to show you the real Ibiza Uncovered- and believe us that will be nothing like the old one!
Stay Tuned, Fixies!
