Since its humble beginnings as an intimate showcase of upcoming acts, Ibiza Rocks has risen to become one of the White Isle’s biggest, best and most diverse event organisations.
As always, this summer season welcomes a well-curated selection of world-renowned artists alongside fresh, promising talent, spread across a host of parties with varying musical persuasions.
Their Wednesday nights have already seen the likes of The 1975, John Newman, Lily Allen and rapper Nas, and chart-topping singer-songwriter Ed Sheeran leads the celebration for their ninth anniversary party on the 23rd of July. Other acts coming up include Rudimental, Bastille, Madness, Kaiser Chiefs, The Kooks and Bombay Bicycle Club.
More specific to dance music fans though, the illustrious Ibiza Rocks House Monday nights have teamed up with Pacha to provide a big-scale classic party with an emphasis on all things ‘weird and wonderful’. You can expect theatrical performances, fancy dress and many more eccentric surprises.
These Monday nights will welcome the likes of Groove Armada, Felix Da Housecat, DJ Pierre and Shadow Child, with Kevin Saunderson, Soul Clap and The Magician appearing at The S Man vs Huxley Takeover on July 14th.
Finishing off the month on July 28th will be house giants 2ManyDJs, Kenny Dope, Claptone and Idris Elba.
Actor/DJ Idris Elba will also be heading the bill at Ibiza Rocks House every Saturday with 7 Wallace Presents Idris Elba & Friends.
As if that wasn’t enough, W.A.R! Fridays will see Mark Ronson and Zane Lowe teaming up for their live event A-YO alongside Cyril Hahn and Doorly, with further showcases throughout the season from Example & DJ Wire, Fatboy Slim and a well-awaited Rinse FM takeover featuring Route 94, Jess Glyne, Oneman, Yasmin, Doorly and Tom Shoter.
This monumental array of events offers something for everyone at every point over the summer season. For group tickets, full line-ups and a closer look, go here
