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

IBIZA ROCKS THE GOOD TIMES IN SEPTEMBER

GOOD TIMES!

IBIZA ROCKS WAVES BYE-BYE TO ANOTHER SUMMER WITH CHIC ft NILE RODGERS, FRANZ FERDINAND + FOALS

WE ARE ROCKSTARS! ALSO COUNTS DOWN TO THE FINISH LINE

 

 (FIX/IBIZA/PR/3 SEPT 2013)

As another summer storms into September, it’s time for our final FIX monthly reminder on all things IBIZA ROCKS. Kicking off the month tomorrow night,Wednesday 4 Sept, in full disco glory, it’s CHIC featuring NILE RODGERS, a night which, if the island whisperings are to be believed, has all the makings of another Ibiza Rocks Had-To-Be-There Night, along the lines of previous years’ momentous occasions- Madness and The Specials come to mind.  Get your disco balls ready, your sequins shined up and prepare for good times!

Next week, another long awaited arrival to the island, after many years of hoping, FRANZ FERDINAND are finally touching down in Ibiza and heading straight for the Ibiza rocks stage! And for our final live music offering of summer 2013, it’s another smasher with Foals and Jagwar Ma singing us out for another season.

Full details on all below. Thanks for all your support for the Rocks throughout this, our eighth season, on behalf of the whole team. Keep Ibiza Rockin’…

WEDNESDAY 4 SEPT :

CHIC FEAT. NILE RODGERS, SKREAM (DISCO SET) & DOORLY

September will see a music legend at the Ibiza Rocks Hotel as Chic feat. Nile Rodgers perform huge hit after hit, live under the stars. From Madness, to The Specials to New Order, every year Rocks books a band that have shaped the music scene and influenced generations after them.  Nile Rodgers is one of the most influential producers of all time, forming CHIC in the 70’s with tracks such as ‘Le Freak,’ ‘I Want Your Love,’ ‘Everybody Dance’ and ‘Good Times’ propelling disco back in the day and still dance classics now. From CHIC’s own hits to Rodgers producing massive tracks like ‘We Are Family’ and ‘He’s The Greatest Dancer’ for Sister Sledge, ‘Upside Down’ and ‘I’m Coming Out’ for Diana Ross, producing David Bowie’s biggest selling album ‘Let’s Dance’ and Madonna’s blockbuster album ‘Like a Virgin’ – Nile Rodgers is ‘The Hitmaker’.  Add to that working with Jeff Beck, The Thompson Twins, Duran Duran, Mick Jagger, and most recently Daft Punk, giving them their biggest hit to date with No.1 single ‘Get Lucky’ – the soundtrack of the summer.  The Ibiza Rocks crowd will certainly get lucky in September as a true dance music pioneer takes centre stage.

WEDNESDAY 11 SEPT:

FRANZ FERDINAND, BOHICAS, ZANE LOWE

One of the most important guitar bands of the decade, Franz Ferdinand are coming to our stage! Having first smashed the charts with their killer hit Take Me Out and their self-titled debut album in 2002, Glasgow boys Franz Ferdinand are back, and Balearic bound. They’ve ticked off a Mercury Music Prize, BRIT Awards for Best British Group and Best British Rock Act, NME Awards, multiple Grammy Award nominations, sold over 3 million albums worldwide and are soon to release their hugely anticipated fourth studio album.This band were a huge influence on Ibiza Rocks, helping fuel the concept of promoting gigs for ‘dance kids who rock and rock kids who dance.’ Ibiza Rocks is exceptionally proud to be bringing one of the world’s best live bands to make their debut on the famous open-air Ibiza Rocks stage this summer.

Alex Kapranos said: “This is the first time we’ve been to Ibiza Rocks, so are looking forward to it. Paul’s been and told us all about it, so we’re expecting a great crowd.”

WEDNESDAY 18 SEPT: CLOSING PARTY

FOALS, JAGWAR MA, KIWI

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

LOS TRES GRANDES ÚLTIMOS CONCIERTOS DEL VERANO

Image

IBIZA ROCKS SE DESPIDE CON CHIC, FRANZ FERDINAND Y FOALS HASTA EL AÑO QUE VIENE

TRES ÚLTIMAS FECHAS PARA EL FENÓMENO ELECTRÓNICO MÁS ACTUAL: WE ARE ROCKSTARS!

  MIÉRCOLES 4 DE SEPTIEMBRE
CHIC FEAT. NILE RODGERS, SKREAM (DISCO SET) & DOORLY

Mañana miércoles 4 de septiembre Ibiza será testigo de una leyenda de la música con Nile Rodgers de CHIC actuando en directo, hit tras hit, bajo las estrellas. Madness, The Specials, New Order… Cada año por estas fechas el Grupo Ibiza Rocks ficha a una banda que ha dado forma a su escena musical y ha influido en generaciones posteriores. Nile Rodgers es uno de los productores más influyentes de todos los tiempos, formando CHIC en los 70 con canciones como ‘Le Freak,’ ‘I Want Your Love,’ ‘Everybody Dance’ y ‘Good Times’, impulsando la música disco y los clásicos dance hasta hoy. Desde sus propios hits para CHIC, hasta la producción de auténticos himnos como ‘We Are Family’ y ‘He’s The Greatest Dancer’ para Sister Sledge, ‘Upside Down’ y ‘I’m Coming Out’ para Diana Ross, ha producido el disco más vendido de David Bowie ‘Let’s Dance’ y el exitoso disco de Madonna ‘Like a Virgin’ – Nile Rodgers es una máquina de hacer hits. A esto se añaden su trabajos con Jeff Beck, The Thompson Twins, Duran Duran, Mick Jagger, y más recientemente Daft Punk, dándoles su mayor éxito hasta la fecha, el single ‘Get Lucky’ – la banda sonora del verano. Será un auténtico lujo para el público de Ibiza Rocks cuando mañana, en el Ibiza Rocks Hotel, uno de los auténticos pioneros de la música dance tome el escenario. Les acompañan Skream con un disco set y Doorly.

 

MIÉRCOLES 11 DE SEPTIEMBRE
FRANZ FERDINAND, BOHICAS, ZANE LOWE

Franz Ferdinand pic

Es una de las bandas más importantes de la década. Han reventado las listas de éxitos con su hit ‘Take Me Out’ y su álbum debut en 2002. La banda de Glasgow Franz Ferdinand pisará por fin, Ibiza. Han ganado un Mercury Prize, un BRIT al mejor grupo británico y otro al mejor directo británico, Premios NME, varias nominaciones a los Grammy, han vendido unos 3 millones de discos en todo el mundo y próximamente publicarán su esperado cuarto álbum de estudio. La banda ha sido una gran influencia para el grupo Ibiza Rocks, ayudando a desarrollar nuestro concepto a la hora de promover conciertos: ‘dance kids who rock and rock kids who dance’. Ibiza Rocks se enorgullece de traer hasta la isla a una de las mejores bandas en directo por primera vez al mejor escenario al aire libre la isla de Ibiza. Les acompañan Bohicas y Zane Lowe.

Alex Kapranos afirma: “Es la primera vez que actuaremos en Ibiza Rocks y estamos deseándolo. Paul estuvo allí y nos lo contó todo, así que esperamos con ganas al gran público de la isla”.

 

CLOSING PARTY

MIÉRCOLES 11 DE SEPTIEMBRE
FOALS, JAGWAR MA, KIWI


La banda que lidera Yannis Philipakis ha comenzado con buen pie el 2013, lo cual es razonable. Su tercer trabajo ‘Holy Fire’ que saldrá a la venta la próxima semana y sus increíbles nuevos singles ‘Inhaler’ y ‘My Number’ han catapultado a la formación a presidir las listas de éxitos de las emisoras de radio musicales, así como protagonizar total atención de festivales, fans y críticas en todo el mundo.


Sus directos por todo Reino Unido han colgado el cartel de aforo completo y memorable fue el concierto en Royal Albert Hall, con todas las entradas vendidas a tan solo 15 minutos de ponerse a la venta. Con todo, Ibiza Rocks está más que orgullosa de dar la bienvenida a Foals, en una fecha, la del cierre, que en ocasiones anteriores protagonizaron otros grandes como Two Door Cinema Club, Noah and the Whale, Klaxons o The Specials, por citar algunos. Serán teloneados por el dúo Jagwar Ma que desde Sidney, son una de las bandas para no perderse en 2013.

¡Gracias por otra maravillosa temporada, la octava, de conciertos en directo! ¡Nos vemos en 2014!

IBIZA ROCKS ON IN AUGUST w/ ALUNAGEORGE, EXAMPLE, ELLIE GOULDING + DIZZEE RASCAL

IBIZA ROCKS def

Warming up over the next weeks, LONDON GRAMMAR, REDLIGHT, DOORLY, CLEAN BANDIT & TODDLA T SOUND

Meanwhile, W.A.R keeps raging on Fridays with both Rinse FM and the HMS Bestival takeover particular highlights

 

(FIX PR/Ibiza/Tues 6 Aug 2013) :

Ibiza. August. Hot. Just got hotter…Welcome to another bumper month at Ibiza Rocks with a live line up that really turns up the temperature in San Antonio every Wednesday. With headliners including tomorrow’s AlunaGeorge and, over the next weeks, Ellie Goulding, Example and the return of an artist that has become part of the Ibiza Rocks family- Dizzee Rascal, this is set to be one scorcher of a month at the Ibiza Rocks Hotel.

It’s a Rocks debut for AlunaGeorge who have exploded onto the scene and featured on one of the biggest tracks of the year ‘White Noise’ with Disclosure. Nominated for the BRITs Critics Choice Award and BBC’s Sound of 2013 and with debut album ‘Body Music’ out in July, this will be one seriously hot summer set.

As for Example, we can’t get enough of him at Ibiza Rocks this year, and he’s back on Aug 14 as part of his summer residency at the IR Hotel. Here’s what he has to say on the matter: ‘Whether it’s my live show or the We Are Rockstars crowds, the hotel is always packed and the atmosphere is incredible. Honestly, playing theIbiza Rocks Hotel – it feels like home for the summer. “

With support from acclaimed DJ/Producer Redlight bringing his live show to the island for the first time this is going to be one serious scorcher of a show.

Another debut in the form of Ellie Goulding on 21 Aug. 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 Halcyonand 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. Undoubtedly one of the world’s most successful female solo stars right now, we can’t wait for her to take centre stage for her debut 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. Dizzee will once again bring his genre-fusing musical genius to the famous open-air Rocks stage with a full new live show. Ibiza Rocks is delighted to bring our boy back to his home from home.

As for the warm up acts for August, talk about scorchio! London Grammar is an English art rock trio formed by Hannah Reid, Dot Major and Dan Rothman. Their debut EP Metal & Dust was released in Feb 2013 and their debut album If you Wait is due for release only a month after they take to the Ibiza Rocks stage, on 9Sept.

Clean BanditThe premise of this group is one that on paper sounds bizarre, an electronic/hip-hop collective built around a string quartet… It shouldn’t work but it really does- take the Ibiza Rocks word for it.

Although no stranger to Ibiza Rocks, this time Toddla T is also stepping up to our stage accompanied by Serocee, DRS and Shola AMA- the collective known as Toddla T Sound. Prepare for some kind of wonderful.
