The home of live music Ibiza rocks has made their first announcements of acts for the summer of 2016. The iconic venue in San Antonio has proved that rock certainly isn’t dead with thousands flocking to party now for the past 10 years. The opening party has been announced for 15 June with the exciting return of the Slaves.
Ibiza Rocks is such a great place to party. Just walking the streets nearby you can hear the echoes from the drums and guitars on the stage. It gives me goose bumps thinking about it remembering the times I have stood around that giant pool with the sun setting watching some of the best live music I have seen in my entire life!
Wednesday nights at Ibiza Rocks are a favourite throughout the summer with tickets priced from as little as £20 each. Ibiza Rocks is celebrating 10 years on the island with it’s now global brand. In July Ibiza Rocks is having not 1 but 2 birthday parties to celebrate 10 years of rock! Part 1 LCD Soundsystem is back and for Part 2 Major Lazer has been announced showing the diverse sound that Ibiza Rocks offers. There isnt just one musical genre to define the music that generally features at the Ibiza Rocks parties but its a mixture of indie, folk, rock, urban and electronic. Also Jack Garatt, Jess Glynee, Tinie Tempah, Faithless and the Kaiser Chiefs have been announced. Based on the social media attention on the release of the line up for the remainder of the season it is looking like another successful year for Ibiza Rocks with sold out shows.
More announcements are coming soon. Last year some of the artists included, Years & Years, Jungle, The Libertines, Rudimental, Clean Bandit, Mark Ronson and De La Soul. We are on the edge of our seat waiting for further announcements. Please also visit our IBIZA ROCKS 2016 PAGE for more details and for tickets to all event please visit our IBIZA CLUBBING CALENDAR

This year is hugely exciting for us at Ibiza Rocks as we embark on our second decade on the island. LCD Soundsystem debuted for us way back in 2004 for a show that was pivotal in inspiring our live music revolution in Ibiza. It felt special – upstart promoters and a maverick producer challenging the way things were. They return as one of the worlds biggest bands and we couldnt be prouder. With Faithless and Major Lazer Soundsystem joining us weve got three global festival headliners at the Ibiza Rocks Hotel this year and thats because there simply isnt another gig atmosphere like it for artists and fans alike. Then we have new talents like Slaves, Jack Garratt and Jess Glynne who weve brought up through the ranks from support slots to headliners and firm favourites like Tinie Tempah and Kaiser Chiefs who consistently put on a brilliant live show. Theres more to come and we cant wait. Shane Murray, Brand Director, Ibiza Rocks Group
