Ibiza Rocks has been on an incredible, passion-fuelled rollercoaster of a ride through the Balearics for the past decade and the groundbreaking brand will celebrate with a line up that reflects the renegade journey, welcoming true festival giants and the best of the new breed. Rocks proudly announces the special 10th birthday show will be headlined by The Libertines. Other acts confirmed for the 14-week series of starlit summer shows include Grammy Award winners Clean Bandit, 2014 Mercury Prize nominees Jungle, 2015’s breakout band and BBC Sound Of winners Years & Years, DJ & Producer legend Fatboy Slim, festival giants The Courteeners and master Drum and Bass duo Sigma.
Since launching in 2005, Ibiza Rocks has quite simply destroyed preconceptions of Ibiza by bringing live music and fresh energy to the White Isle. Rocks changed the game in a dance-fuelled world and continue to lead the way for live music in Ibiza.
Cult heroes and music icons to a generation, The Libertines, will headline the world famous poolside Rocks stage for the hugely anticipated 10th Birthday Party. Pete Doherty and Carl Barat have individually influenced Rocks, having played separately with Babyshambles (2005) and Dirty Pretty Things (2006) at the very start. It was Pete’s decision to play the 500 capacity beachside Bar M (now Ibiza Rocks Bar) that took the Rocks gigs from the dark back room of the big club to the open-air beach side setting. Recently announced as headliners of T in the Park, this will be rare opportunity for fans to see this massive festival headliner in a truly unique and intimate setting.
Carl Barat, The Libertines said: ‘Ibiza Rocks is one of the greatest gigs there is. The strange and debauched energy of the place never fails to provide the perfect backdrop for bacchanalian reverie of the highest order. Everyone there is gonna be ‘mad for it’, I can’t wait. One of those nights actually worth the b@stard hangover. Bring it.’
The Ibiza Rocks brand consistently boasts a bill crammed with the biggest international artists, best breakthrough talent and cutting edge DJs. Summer 2015 will see the celebration of Ibiza Rocks 10th Birthday during the 14 weeklong season of spectacular outdoor gigs. The pioneering brand has also expanded with the launch of its first major festival, Croatia Rocks, taking place on the Island of Pag in July (www.croatiarocks.com).
