2017 Season Preview: Ibiza Rocks Hotel

7 days ago by Matty Adams

Ibiza Rocks Hotel – Ibiza’s official home of the pool party and live music!

Cutting-edge live music has risen and found a concrete home of the White Isle over the past decade or so and much of that credit comes courtesy of San Antonio’s favourite open-air venue, Ibiza Rocks Hotel.

Born in 2005 out of a deep passion and desire to push the island’s musical boundaries beyond dance music with the aim of keeping Ibiza current, credible and alive with youth, Ibiza Rocks Hotel has maintained a seat at the very forefront of new music.

Surrounding themselves with innovation, new sounds and unrivalled experiences for a new generation of music fanatics, Ibiza Rocks Hotel always creates a credible atmosphere within unique settings.

With a continued hunger for live music ever present in the heart of the party capital and a re-emergence in nightlife amongst the San Antonio scene in general, Ibiza Rocks Hotel comes prepared in 2017 with all the answers.

Whether it’s Indie, Folk, Rock, Urban or Electronic, Ibiza Rocks Hotel is certainly the place to be this year, especially if you want to experience the thrill ride of the pool party…

Here’s what Ibiza Rocks Hotel has in store for you this year.


TUESDAYS: Ibiza Rocks Live Series

Two years on from celebrating its milestone tenth anniversary, the Ibiza Rocks Live Series is back continuing to fly the flag of live music on the White Isle. Bringing you no fewer than six spectacular editions between Tuesday 4th July and 5th September, you can expect to taste everything from Indie and Rock all the way to Urban and Electronica.

Operations will commence at the Ibiza Rocks Opening Party with performances from Royal Blood and Black Honey. This will be followed by Ibiza’s first ever grime festival, #MERKY Festival, headlined by Stormzy before Dua Lipa arrives one week later. Following this, Ibiza fanatics can then brace themselves for headline performances the likes of Clean Bandit, Bastille and The Kooks throughout the months of July, August and September.


THURSDAYS: We Are Rockstars

Gearing up to transform this San Antonio favourite into a blend of dance music and bass heavy hedonism, We Are Rockstars lands on at Ibiza Rocks Hotel for the sixth successive season taking charge of Thursday nights.

Catering for the opening half of the summer between 1st June and 13th July, We Are Rockstars will feature phenomenal performances from the likes of MistaJam, Tom Zanetti & K.O. Kane, Example & DJ Wire, Sigma (DJ set), Wilkinson and several more.


THURSDAYS: Craig David’s TS5 Pool Party

Arguably considered to be the elite pool party on the entire island, Craig David’s TS5 Pool Party returns in 2017 taking over the latter stage of the summer packing two extra dates than that of his first season.

Taking over Thursday day-times, the Southampton-born UK Garage legend will bring you old-school anthems, MC rhythms and the very sound of Miami itself for a monstrous 10-week residency between 20th July and 21st September. Can we get a re-rewind?


SUNDAYS: Do Not Sleep Presents Cuckoo Land

A brand new addition to Ibiza Rock Hotel’s summer calendar for 2017, Do Not Sleep prepares to make their daytime debut every Sunday from 21st May as they welcome you to Cuckoo Land. This is a representation of freedom from reality unleashing a Deep House and Techno soundtrack upon the sun-drenched San Antonio.

Inviting you a state of absurdly over-optimistic fantasy in a wildly unpredictable environment, a heavy breath of hedonism and dance floor debauchery will unite dance music enthusiasts together as one. Their debut summer will feature such illustrious names as Darius Syrossian, Alan Fitzpatrick, Emanuel Satie, Josh Butler, Nathan Barato, Skream, Solardo and regular performances from residents, Latmun and Max Chapman.


SPECIALS:


Toddla T’s Ibiza Rocks Carnival – Thursday 15th and 29th June

Joining forces to create two remarkable pool party occasions, both Ibiza Rocks Hotel and BBC Radio 1’s Todda T have a tonne of treats in store for island fanatics this coming summer. Igniting a carnival scene beyond the wildest of imaginations, Todda T’s Ibiza Rocks Carnival will consist of body painting, inflatable action, dancers, colour, decor and plenty of jerk chicken.

Taking place on both Thursday 15th and 29th June, Toddla T will be accompanied on stage this summer by the likes of Sean Paul, Lethal Bizzle, Donaeo, The Heatwave and much more.


elrow Pool Party – Tuesday 8th and 22nd August

A mesmerising addition to the scene of San Antonio, the official elrow Pool Party will grace Ibiza Rocks Hotel with a whirlwind of Tech House, inflatable infusion and fancy dress euphoria on both Tuesday 8th and 22nd August.

Notorious for its outlandish fiesta behaviour, Ibiza Rocks Hotel allows elrow to take things into another dimension with the addition of its famous pool. Equally famous for its spectacular line-ups, elrow has welcomed such names as Joseph Capriati, Skream, Sidney Charles, Sante and Kolsch in the past. You can expect some dance music heavyweight to join the fray in 2017 alongside elrow’s trust team of residents.
