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.

Foals frontman, Yannis Philippakis said: “We’ve always wanted to go to an Ibiza closing party… and now we get to play one. Double bubble.”  


Ibiza Rocks will kick off the season in style on 5th June 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 Balearics with his full live festival show for a headline gig in Ibiza on 14th August. Example and DJ Wire will also make Ibiza their home for a month when they headline no less than 5 We Are Rockstars (W.A.R!) shows at the Ibiza Rocks Hotel on Fridays July 5th, 12th, 19th, 26th and August 23rd.

Many 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 gigs and a holiday of a lifetime in the sun-soaked Balearics.
