Made up of three hotels, two hostels, two bars with its own fashion label and a whopper list of headline music acts in the sunshine, you’d be crazy to miss out on Ibiza Rocks in summer 2013. Stemming from slightly more humble (!) beginnings in 2005 in one of Ibiza’s most legendary club nights, Manumission, Ibiza Rocks has grown to become one of the must-see gigs of the summer. Drawing the likes of The Prodigy, Florence and the Machine, the Specials and LCD Soundsystem to its poolside stage in San Antonio, Ibiza Rocks really knows how to pack them in. There is 17 weeks worth of Rocks gigs in each hotel over the summer, every Wednesday night. Since last year, there’s an added DJ led night every Friday with the best in electro acts taking to the stage.
Ibiza Rocks Lineup June highlights: Rizzle Kicks and The Vaccines. July highlights: W.A.R! with Example & DJ Wire, Ibiza Rocks 8th Birthday Party with Special Guests. September Highlights: Franz Ferdinand, Closing Party with Foals.
