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:

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.

ANTZ, CRAZY GOLF TALES & EASTER FUNDRAISING

Antz_Hirst_4Logos

DJ ANTZ BACK FROM MIAMI TO PLAY AT AECC FUNDRAISER

HIDDEN’S EASTER FAYRE TAKES PLACE ON SATURDAY, 30TH MARCH

 

(FIX IBIZA/25th MARCH 2013):  DJ, music producer, fundraiser and, in a recent revelation, golfer, Ibiza resident Anthony Bryans- ANTZ– is a man with very many talents. In the latest of a long list of his moves and shakes, the London born DJ is once again behind the fundraiser for the local branch of the Spanish Cancer Association (AECC), flying in from Miami especially for the event at Hidden Bar, Ibiza, on Saturday 30th March 2013.

In a winter that has seen Antz mostly locked in a studio ear-deep in a very special music collaboration in full swing (more details soon…), Bryans has also been involved in raising the profile of the AECC through his continuing voluntary work with the association, in the form of a number of fundraising initiatives including this, the Easter Fayre in Cala San Vicente, from 12pm-6pm.

Flying straight in from his visit to Miami, where his activities included a few rounds of golf with former racing driver and founder and owner of Jordan Grand Prix, Eddie Jordan, in a game organised by no less than World Number One and a two-time major champion golfer, Rory McIlroy MBE, Antz decided to put the golf clubs down, leave the Miami Music Conference to its own devices and fly back in order to be present at the event at Hidden, arriving back on the island just in the nick of time to DJ at the Easter Fayre.

Antz, who himself kicked cancer firmly to the kerb several years ago, first became involved with raising awareness of the local AECC association a year ago, through a meeting arranged by FIX Ibiza’s Jillian Canney with the Ibiza & Formentera branch of the AECC’s Vice-President Sue Mari. Since then, momentus has grown with other future efforts for the AECC including the upcoming 1st Ibiza Charity Polo Cup organised by local company, Ibiza Delivers.

 

The 2nd AECC fundraiser at Hidden Bar, Ibiza – An Afternoon of Fun, Fundraising and Cocktails.

hidden_BC_front_crop

‘Hidden’– literally, in the bay of Cala San Vicente– is the perfect location for a fundraiser of this nature. Evoking memories of Alice in Wonderland’s charming quaint dreamland, weathered bunting and china cups amongst the giant chess pieces and crazy golf course, organisers plan an Easter Fayre with definite references to the ideas and ideals of a good old traditional Easter Fayre.

Bring and Buy stalls, Arts & Crafts, Raffle, Tombola, Crazy Golf, Easter Egg hunt, Easter Bonnet competition, face-painting- just some of the activities in store on Easter Saturday,

Other Easter treats include Hot Cross buns and Easter cakes, plus a selection of cocktails from acclaimed mixologist Chris Edwardes.

In the kitchen: Michael Arthur and Pedro Cervero.

URBAN IN PARLIAMENT!

Image

‘URBAN IN IBIZA’ set to represent the island as part of LNADJ’s historic event inside the British Houses of Parliament

 Urban in Ibiza co-curator, INKIE, confirms live paint at the event

(6th March 2013/FIX/Ibiza): 

As far as historical turning points go, URBAN IN IBIZA’s recent announcement really took the proverbial biscuit with their unveiling of their charity foundation meets art project ‘SMILE BRITANNIA’, due to be launched today, Wednesday, May 6th inside the U.K Houses of Commons, in conjunction with the ‘Last Night a DJ Saved My Life Foundation’.

The LNADJ event is one that organisers have been planning for quite some time, and which today, becomes a reality. As part of the initiative, Urban in Ibiza’s curator, INKIE, will do a live paint at the event, most definitely the first of its kind to take place in the hallowed halls of the House of Commons, in the U.K’s capital city, London.

Contemporary artist RYCA will also be in attendance with his iconic ‘Mega Smiley’ image. Both artists will be producing limited edition prints for all attendees, as well as large scale pieces for display.

Urban in Ibiza’s creator and partner in the Westbank Gallery London, Paul ‘Dizzi’ Saunders, who has played a key role in the realization of the project, said of today’s fundraiser, “It’s a joy to be involved in such a historic event. Seems like only yesterday we were marching on Parliament for the ‘Freedom to Dance’ movement. Twenty-five years later, I’m welcomed with open arms; walking in the front door with a 2m high Smiley and one of the biggest DJs in house music, all to promote a government backed charity. This year is set to be our biggest yet in so many ways. Sons of Warhol are coming! Onwards and upwards.”

But that’s just the half of it. Step up, Norman Cook, much better known as FatBoy Slim, for he is the main man set to make dance music history by being the first DJ ever to play inside the House of Commons. Backing him up, the world’s most adventurous cellist, Matthew Barley, & young visionary beat poet, Sonny Green. Bryce Fury, the winner of Westbank’s national DJ competition, House the House, will also be showing us what he’s made of in the music department.  Could this whole thing be any more exciting?!

The event is hosted by Mike Weatherley, MP. Former music executive Mike, also champions Rock the House & Film the House competitions.

This is one seriously cool, seriously urban and seriously historic happening.

NEW YEAR’S CHEER FROM THE ANTZ CAMP

Hidden_GiantCheque_AECC

  • AECC RECEIVE DONATION OF 775€, PROCEEDS OF THE ‘HIDDEN TREASURES’ CHRISTMAS FAIR
  • LOCAL DJ AND AECC VOLUNTEER ANTZ BRYANS ALREADY HAS NEXT FUNDRAISER IN THE PIPELINE

(FIX//Ibiza, 24th January, 2013)

It may be cold outside but we are feeling rather warm and fuzzy after a meeting today between the AECC and the kind folks behind the Hidden Treasures Christmas Fair resulted in a donation of 775€ being handed over to the Spanish Cancer Association, proceeds of the fundraiser held on December 15th, 2012.

President and Vice-President Lali Costa and Sue Mari were present for the handover of the cheque from Hidden Bar’s owners and co-organisers of the event, Amanda Blanch + Chris Edwardes. Also at the presentation, FIX Ibiza’s own Jillian Canney representing both her PR agency and its client, local DJ and fellow AECC volunteer, Antz Bryans, all of whom also played important roles in the success of the Christmas charity fundraiser.

The AECC said they were ‘once again delighted with the efforts of Antz and his team players in drawing awareness to the Association and it’s cause’, which helps provide much needed care for cancer patients in the Pitiusas.

Spurred on by the success, another event is being planned for Easter at HIDDEN BAR in Cala San Vicente, with details being confirmed at time of going to press.  One thing is for sure, thought, Antz will once again be giving it his all as far as the music is concerned at the Easter Eggstravaganza and if it’s anything like the last one, expect a great day out for the young and the not-so-young, all in the name of a great cause.

hidden_BC_front_crop

In other Antz news:

This Saturday 26th and time for Antz to get all Sexy n Chic again, with the DJ back behind the decks of S n C island promoter, Jonathan Roi’s latest gathering, Mood Up, being held at Sirocco Beach Club, Playa den Bossa. Get there early (from 10pm) for a sushi feed on the house!  Oh! And girls, heads up…don’t wear stilettoes if you’re planning to boogie the night away (which goes without saying when Antz gets on) – that decking floor can be treacherous…

ANTZ’ HIDDEN TREASURES COME TO LIGHT

 

LOCAL DJ ANTZ, PLANS NEXT STAGE OF FUNDRAISING PLAN AFTER MEETING WITH SPANISH CANCER ASSOCIATION, AECC

CHRISTMAS FAIR FUNDRAISER IN CALA SAN VICENTE’S HIDDEN BAR CONFIRMED FOR 15TH DECEMBER 2012, 12-6pm

CIMG2710

(FIX IBIZA/5 Dec 2012/IBIZA):  

In a meeting this week with the Spanish Cancer Association, the AECC, Ibiza DJ and all round good guy, ANTZ, confirmed that he would continue in his efforts to bring awareness to the association, the cause and those affected by cancer in the Pitiusas.

As a next step in his voluntary quest, plans have been announced for the well-known DJ’s involvement in the ‘Hidden: Treasures’ Christmas Fair in Cala San Vicente, in the north of the island of Ibiza.

The fair, organised by HIDDEN’s owners, Amanda Blanch and Chris Edwardes, will take place on Saturday 15th December, 12pm – 6pm, with a combination of a Christmas market, food and drinks, an appearance from Santa Claus and music provided by DJs Antz and Soundman Scott amongst the many plans being finalized.

As well as having an AECC information stand at the fair, fundraising efforts will include a raffle, tombola, charity cocktail and 1€ entry fee to the Christmas Fete, all proceeds to be directed to the Cancer Association.

HiddenTreasuresPosterEFlyer_FINAL-01

Talking of his volunteer work with the Ibiza & Formentera branch of the AECC, Antz said, “I got cancer 15 years ago, totally out of the blue, and it’s easy to forget how hard it was and the help that you need. Everyone I know is affected in some way by the disease and people are terrified of it. The point is for people to start to be more aware of it and to give whatever they can.”

Antz, real name Anthony Bryans, recently played an intrinsic role in the fusing of collaboration earlier this year between the AECC, the Teenage Cancer Trust and London members’ club, the Groucho. His efforts resulted in the recent presentation to the local cancer association by both parties of 8000€.

Aside from his volunteer efforts, the DJ has a busy month ahead with a number of dates confirmed in his old stomping ground of London, including Slush on 1st Dec, Shoom’s 25th Anniversary on 8th and his own Electric Santa on 22nd December before flying back to Ibiza just in time to get the party started at AURA on New Years Eve.
