Big bass, big stars, and big hair – rock music never goes out of style. Born in a back room at Manumission many moons ago, Ibiza Rocks moved to the old Bar M (now Ibiza Rocks Diner) in 2005, before turning a once friendly family hotel into Ibiza’s epicentre of pumping rock concerts in 2008.
Mixing classic legends like LCD Soundsystem with modern heroes Kaiser Chiefs, huge superstars such as All Saints, and hot new artists like Jess Glynne and Alice Wolf, the festival-esque stage at Ibiza Rocks Hotel guarantees an eclectic but always hot line-up every Wednesday that rocks you to your very core.
Friday nights prove that rock, garage, grime and drum and bass are super happening as We Are Rockstars take over as the main event and look to pound eardrums all summer long with performances from Hannah Wants, David Rodigan and Stormzy among others. Expect a new type of Sunday funday with Craig David heating up the island’s newest exclusive pool party.
You can’t help but get in the mood as you walk into the hotel-slash-mini-stadium, past the iconic fluorescent signage and into an explosion of raw energy – complete with beer in plastic cups and hot dogs of course. Be sure to keep your eyes peeled on the VIP balcony where you may spot the likes of Kate Moss and Kylie Minogue – depending on who’s on the bill!
