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.

ALL ABOUT WARHOL! URBAN IN IBIZA at OCEAN BEACH CLUB, FRI 23 AUG

 

SOW Logo K. Thomas

Urban in Ibiza: Sons of Warhol celebrates final island event on Friday 23 Aug at Ocean Beach Club with Société Perrier on board

Amongst the exhibition pieces, work from Banksy, Schoony, Pure Evil, My Dog Sighs, Snik, Fin Dac and John Tracy. Live Paint by Inkie and Dank

 

(FIX/Ibiza/Thurs 22 Aug 2013):

After what has been an intense 8 month long journey of proposals, preparations and paintings, URBAN IN IBIZA: Sons of Warhol is finally coming to the end of another island takeover with its ultimate event of 2013 taking place this Friday 23rd August at Ocean Beach Club, San Antonio. Set to be another roaring success for the organisers of the event, and in particular its creator, Paul Dizzi Saunders, this is the second time that Urban in Ibiza has presented its street art collection at the San An location and in an exciting, new collaboration, organisers are also pleased to announce that Société Perrier have also come on board the Urban in Ibiza Tour Bus (Yes, we have a Tour Bus!), in what hopes to be the start of a beautiful relationship between the two brands. And the link between the two- none other than the man who initiated the pop art movement in the 60s and remains a vital reference in the art world in the present day. He is Andy Warhol.

In 1983, Andy Warhol created over 40 works of art inspired by the iconic Perrier bottle. This year, to celebrate Perrier’s 150th anniversary, the brand has reconnected with the legendary artist through the Andy Warhol Foundation for the Visual Arts, presenting exclusive limited-edition Perrier packaging based on Warhol’s brilliant art, and which the Société Perrier team will present to guests at Ocean Beach Club throughout the event on Friday.

Back at the Urban in Ibiza camp and, having long since been a fan of Warhol’s work, Saunders wanted to capture some of that essence and philosophy and bring it to his own Art-Fashion-Music concept.  Saunders says, “Andy Warhol has always been someone I have admired. I feel street art emulates that Warhol quirk and ‘Sons Of Warhol’ is a term I’ve always used to describe our school of street artists. Plus, with Warhol’s birthday/anniversary falling on the same month as the Urban In Ibiza events this year, I decided it was the perfect opportunity to roll out the name”.

Taking all that into account, then, and it’s plain to see why Société Perrier and Urban in Ibiza’s joining of forces for the Ocean Beach event is a pretty apt one. The French mineral water brand will be present at the event, with surprises, giveaways and of course, plenty of sparkling water to cool the crowd down, including a number of their limited edition Andy Warhol bottles for the lucky/thirsty ones.

Societe-Perrier-Black-on-White

 

Back to the art, and the Urban in Ibiza exhibition at Ocean Beach includes works by Schoony, My Dog Sighs, Adam Bricusse, Snik, John Tracey, K Guy, Hornsleth, Ben Allen, Chad Muska, Dan Kitchener (DANK), Banksy, Elmo Hood, Zeus, Fin Dac, Henry Hate, Inkie, Pure Evil, Chapter and Milo. 

A special mention should go out to Schoony, whose works of art are constant fixtures in Urban in Ibiza exhibitions. With a background rooted in special effects and prosthetics for the film industry in a career spanning over twenty years, he took the plunge into a new career as an artist to share his passion for life cast sculpture. Schoony soon took the London art scene by storm in 2008 with his life cast sculptures ‘Boy Soldiers’, one of whom currently features in box office smash, Kick Ass 2.

For Urban in Ibiza: Sons of Warhol, he has created a life cast masterpiece, a little brother for his Boy Soldiers, Urban in Ibiza’s mascot for 2013. We present The Son of Warhol, a work of art so realistic you will need to look twice.

Also back for the Ocean Beach event, American photographer/artist and curator John Tracey will make a personal appearance presenting his SK8 Art St collection as part of the works on show. Apart from that, other most definite highlights of this event include a live paint by a vital component in Urban’s history- Bristol artist, Inkie this time joined by massively rising star, Dank, whose paintings at the Atzaro Exhibition were amongst the most popular. Mexican artist Henry Hate’s showstopper is also taking pride of place at Ocean Beach Club and keep eyes open for local artist Chapter’s contribution to the show. We could go on and on and on but the truth is, each and every work of art at Urban in Ibiza: Sons of Warhol deserves a massive shout out.  Or, you could just come see for yourself!

The crème de la crème of the international street art scene- right there, one more day/night only, at Ocean Beach Club, this Friday 23 August.

IBIZA ART ALERT!!!

fixibiza_new_logo2_jpeg

WED 7 LAST CHANCE TO SEE TWO FANTASTIC EXHIBITIONS ON THE ISLAND:

 

URBAN IN IBIZA: SONS OF WARHOL at AGROTURISMO ATZARO

+

BO WOODY WINTER’S JAZZ LEGENDS at IBIZA ROCKS HOUSE

 

(FIX IBIZA/7AUG2013):

If there’s one thing that we here at FIX IBIZA love, it’s being involved with mind-blowing art exhibitions and highly talented artists. So, in a bittersweet announcement, we’re here to tell you that today is the last day of two really special exhibitions, both very close to our hearts.  The first, Urban in Ibiza: Sons of Warhol and the second, Bo Woody Winter’s Jazz Legends.  Two separate exhibitions, two venues, two last chances to see two amazing collections of work.

SOW Logo K. Thomas

Urban in Ibiza at Agroturismo Atzaro is a project we have been deeply involved with since its beginning, five years ago. Since its anniversary event last Thursday, this edition, Sons of Warhol, has already seen the art-music-fashion concept climb the serious kudos ladder so much the higher, with exclusive works of some of the world’s undeniably greatest street artists including Banksy, Shepard Fairey (Obey) and Inkie, to name but three from many, many more… 

You are very much invited to attend the final evening of exhibition tonight from 7pm, in the Atzaro Gallery. We shall probably also raise a glass to the show’s inspiration – Andy Warhol, who would have celebrated his 85th birthday yesterday, RIP, Mr Warhol. Next Stop, Ocean Beach Club…*

130730 bo at pikes 1-1

Meanwhile, over in the San Antonio Hills, another jewel nestles, a veritable jazz fest in Freddie’s Suite at Ibiza Rocks House in the form of Dutch artist Mr Bo Woody Winter’s Jazz Legends exhibition- a collection of 18 breathtaking paintings, representations of self confessed Jazz Junkie Winter’s own Jazz Heroes. Since its Vernissage last week at Ibiza Rocks House at Pikes,  the exhibition has received rave reviews from press and public alike. A must see !
Bo is back on the island in October with his second art collection, DJ ICONS to be shown at Agroturismo Atzaro but more on that later…*

 

So, for those who missed the Vernissage of one or the other, or, shame on you- both, do take our advice and squeeze in a visit to Ibiza Rocks House and/or Agroturismo Atzaro somewhere along your journey today.

You’ll thank us later….

 

*URBAN IN IBIZA RETURNS TO OCEAN BEACH CLUB, SAN ANTONIO ON 23rd AUGUST
*DJ ICONS by BO WOODY WINTER, VERNISSAGE 11 OCTOBER

Ibiza, 30 de julio 2013 (FIX Ibiza).- El arte cobra en la ya quinta edición de Urban in Ibiza una relevancia especial con la presencia de artistas internacionales como John Tracy, recién aterrizado en la isla para presentar su show artístico SK8 Art St. Una expo colectiva iniciada en Los Angeles y que tras pasar por otras ciudades llega ahora hasta Ibiza para celebrar la quinta edición del evento urbano artístico Urban in Ibiza. Entre los nombres de este peculiar proyecto se encuentra el de  Shepard Fairey. Al californiano le conocemos por el retrato de Barack Obama con la leyenda ‘Hope’, que fue utilizado por el presidente durante la primera y victoriosa campaña electoral.

ARTE

Shepard traerá a Ibiza obras relevantes y nuevas,  para en esta ocasión atender a dos ediciones iguales pero diferentes de Urban in Ibiza para celebrar por todo lo alto que en 2013 cumplimos 5 años. Las fechas: 1 de agosto en Atzaró y 23 de agosto en Ocean Beach Club.

Pero hay más. Se confirma la adición de otros artistas norteamericanos como uno de los Jackass, Bam Margera, o el renombrado skater Chad Muska.

Regresan grandes artistas de anteriores ediciones de Urban in Ibiza, convertidos ya en grandes amigos, y joven talento, representando el futuro. Encuentra piezas urbanas para diferentes espacios, para todos los públicos y bolsillos de la mano de Banksy, David Walker, Mau Mau, Fin Dac, Inkie, Snik, Schoony, Ben Allen, Dan Kitchener aka DANK, Jim Vision, Ben Slow, Henry Hate, Pure Evil, Rowan Newton, My Dog Sighs, Kristian Hornsleth, K Guy, Goldie, Nick Walker, Ryan Callanan aka RYCA, Milo, Copyright, Gemma Compton, Jim Starr, Elmo Hood, Lauren Baker, Chapter, Zeus, Nicolas Dixon, Sequin Kay, Adam Bricusse.

Urban in Ibiza utiliza en esta edición el nombre de ‘Sons of Warhol’. Una descripción que ya hace años empleó un veterano artista de Ibiza al descubrir la colección de arte urbano de Paul Dizzi Saunders, director de Urban in Ibiza y propietario de la galería londinense Westbank Gallery (www.londonwestbank.com). Con el añadido artístico americano en 2013, la expresión cobra pleno significado.

La exposición de Urban in Ibiza se mantendrá en Atzaró del 1 al 8 de agosto. 

MODA

Y por supuesto, moda. Urban in Ibiza aglutina disciplinas y la moda es siempre una de ellas. Este año, el desfile lo encabeza el belga Tom Van der Borght, mostrando su colección Otoño/Invierno 13/14, llamada ‘Aponycalypse’ y recientemente premiada con el ‘Premium Young Designer Award 2013’ en la Berlin Fashion Week.

Además, y tras su reciente y exitoso lanzamiento de una boutique online, con una exquisita selección de prendas que exteriorizan de manera sublime la esencia de Ibiza, White Ibiza desfilará también por la pasarela de Atzaró, el próximo jueves 1 de agosto con marcas como la americanaL *Space o la brasileña ViX Swimwear, entre otras.

MÚSICA

El DJ y productor inglés Benji Boko repite este año porque Urban in Ibiza se merece sesiones chifladas como las suyas, con un enérgico hip hop de fondo. Se suman al cartel MC Carpetface y los DJs Samir, Yuniq, Gianluca de Tiberiis y Tony Montana.

URBAN IN IBIZA 5 PRESENTS ‘SONS OF WARHOL’: UNDER A STAR STENCILLED BANNER|

Image

 

CELEBRATING ITS 5TH YEAR AS IBIZA’S URBAN ART FORERUNNER AT ATZARó 1 AUG AND OCEAN BEACH CLUB 23 AUG
AMERICAN ARTISTS CONFIRMED AS SHEPARD FAIREY, JOHN TRACY, BAM MARGERA & CHAD MUSKA


(FIX/ IBIZA/17 JULY 2013) :  As Ibiza summer events go, it’s safe to say that ever since it first exploded onto the calendar in 2009, URBAN IN IBIZA is definitely up there on the Best of the Best List. This year, and what with the team behind the art-music-fashion extravaganza getting ready to celebrate their 5th birthday already (baby’s growin’ up…), this latest edition is set for starry, starry heights with not only a number of dates and venues confirmed but also, a wealth of both exclusive art & international artists all confirmed to take part in this Urban in Ibiza’s fifth celebration of their love of urban art, music and fashion.

The principal dates already set in stone for this edition are 1 Aug at Agroturismo Atzaró23 Aug at Ocean Beach Club and 31 July when Urban in Ibiza pops up for a live paint at Ibiza Rocks Hotel. Add to that the 30 July being set aside for the Mini Markers- a kids street art workshop at Atzaro plus the fact that the Urban in Ibiza exhibition itself runs at Atzaró Gallery until 8 Aug before being shipped off to San Antonio’s Ocean Beach Club, and it’s a veritable month long urbantastic explosion.

The mahoosive news for the urbanistas this time round is the fact that event owner and director Paul Dizzi Saunders has confirmed the acquisition of a number of exclusive works at the events by a number of high profile American artists including the internationally recognised Shepard Fairey, man behind Obey Giant.

Fairey’s name is a familiar one to any aficionado of contemporary urban/street art, his reputation having catapulted to a stellar level in 2008 when his ‘Hope’ portrait of Barack Obama became the iconic image of the presidential campaign and helped inspire an unprecedented political movement. The original image now hangs in the Smithsonian Institution’s National Portrait Gallery in Washington D.C. At this year’s Urban in Ibiza, Shepard Fairey unveils some original 2013 work, and this, make no mistake about it, is ‘a HUGE deal’ by any standards.

Image

Representing Skate and Street, the work of Jackass’ Bam Margera and world renowned skater Chad Muska both form part of the SK8 Art St exhibition within an exhibition at Urban in Ibiza this year with fellow artist and curator John Tracy the obvious choice for a personal appearance at the event. ‘SK8 ART ST’ is a skateboarding / street art concept which takes a long look at skate culture and the transformation of skate related objects and paraphernalia into functional and fine artworks.

Aside from the U.S contingent, expect a long list of art and artists including several old faithfuls and a number of young newbies. To date, this year’s Urban in Ibiza will feature the works (and many of them exclusively) of Banksy, David Walker, Mau Mau, Fin Dac, Inkie, Snik, Schoony, Ben Allen, Dan Kitchener aka DANK, Jim Vision, Ben Slow, Henry Hate, Pure Evil, Rowan Newton, My Dog Sighs, Kristian Hornsleth, K Guy, Goldie, Nick Walker, Ryan Callanan aka RYCA, Milo, Copyright, Gemma Compton, Jim Starr, Elmo Hood, Lauren Baker, Chapter, Zeus, Nicolas Dixon, Sequin Kay, Adam Bricusse and if we know Dizzi Saunders, probably a few more squeezed in along the way…

Between them all, a celebration of street art, of skate, of urban culture and lifestyle. And that’s not to mention the fashion, the music and the kids’ workshop.

As per every year, Urban In Ibiza’s organisers are planning to wow with a catwalk show par excellence, this year led by Belgian designer and winner of the ‘Premium Young Designer Award 2013’ at Berlin Fashion Week, urban fashion designer Tom Van der Borght. Showcasing his award-winning  AW 13/14 collection ‘Aponycalypse’, Tom’s wild creations are the missing pieces of the Urban In Ibiza puzzle for 2013, we kid you not. Get ready for a catwalk show that simply screams Urban.

Warming up the catwalk and the crowd, Urban in Ibiza are also delighted to bring White Ibiza on board. After the successful launch of a new online Ibiza fashion boutique earlier this year, the fashion and style experts from White Ibiza are teaming up with Urban in Ibiza to bring their online brands onto the catwalk!

Smelling salts at the ready, it’s White Ibiza’s selection of this summer’s hottest swimwear styles, from hot US label L*Space and Brazilian brand ViX Swimwear among others that will have the crowd’s attention. Think fabulous fringing, wild patterns, mismatched prints, tribal embellishments and edgy hardware – these bikinis are anything but tame, echoing Ibiza’s eclectic yet chic style stakes. Attention grabbing stiff, just the way the Urbanistas like it…

Musically, it’s never a dull affair at Urban in Ibiza and this 5th Anniversary promises to prove just that. Fans of past editions will know the name of Benji Boko rather well, and the English DJ/Producer is back again to get the party well and truly started with his kooky remixes and energetic hip hop mash up sessions. He’s joined by MC Carpetface and DJs Samir, Yuniq, GianLuca de Tiberiis and Tony Montana plus special performances TBC. Extra good news on the music front, with Atzaró’s extended licencing hours meaning that we can make sweet urban music until 4a.m for the first time in Urban’s history at the gorgeous rural hotel hideaway.

As per every edition, Urban in Ibiza loves getting the kids involved. Lined up for their junior art experience this time around, Urban in Ibiza presents Mini Markers, a Street Art workshop with one of Europe’s top Graffiti artists Tom ‘Inkie’ BingleThe workshop is devised for 6-14 year olds and takes place on 30July from 12- 2.30pm again at Atzaró. With a set price per child of 25€, leave your budding Sons of Warhol to get their creative flow on, whilst you parents relax and enjoy lunch at Sant Joan’s jewel in the crown, Agroturismo Atzaró. And with Junior’s masterpiece coming home with him/her, best make a space on the mantelpiece. Booking is essential and can be done by mailing: charlotte@londonwestbank.com

So. To sum up. Art- Fashion- Music. Put it all together and what have you got except one great big, brilliant celebration of Urban Lifestyle.

URBAN IN PARLIAMENT!

‘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.

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!!!
