MTV TO BROADCAST ALL THE BEST BITS FROM THE BALEARICS

Ibiza Rocks guarantees hot weather, cool accommodation and 16 weeks of phenomenal live gigs under the Balearic stars, with the most in-demand live acts and DJ’s on the planet.  Joining previously announced acts Jake Bugg, Example and Foals on the incredible line-up are chart-toppers and festival favourites Ellie Goulding, Dizzee Rascal, The Vaccines and Rizzle Kicks plus Jagwar Ma and Palma Violets.  

Ellie Goulding is undoubtedly one of the UK’s most singular and compelling songwriters. In the two-and-a-half years since releasing massive debut album Lights, Ellie has secured huge global success including the USA where she’s sold over 3m albums.  Back with new album Halcyon and lead single, Anything Could Happen, Ellie shows a new immersion in electronica and dance beats, producing a fascinating collision between the clubbing scene and Ellie’s love of folk-pop soundscapes.  These gigs are perfectly placed and it is a huge honour to have one of the worlds most successful female solo stars take centre stage for her debut at the Ibiza Rocks Hotel.

After tearing up the new year in style with the release of DirteeTV.com The Mixtape Vol.2, Dizzee Rascal releases featured track Bassline Junkie this month, a taster of what’s to come from Dizzee’s forthcoming fifth studio album and his headline gig at Ibiza Rocks. It’s been almost 10 years since Dizzee released his debut single and Rocks is proud to have been on an incredible journey with the East London MC turned worldwide legend who has just been chosen by Muse to appear as a special guest on their UK Stadium tour.  Having first headlined Ibiza Rocks in 2008, Dizzee’s love affair with Ibiza began and headline gigs followed in 2009, 2010 and 2011.  Back to the Balearics and so, to his home away from home, Dizzee will once again bring his genre-fusing musical genius to the famous open-air Ibiza Rocks stage with a full new live show.

Since performing at Ibiza Rocks in 2011 just as they released their debut album, London indie-rock outfit The Vaccines have smashed the live scene, released No.1 follow up album Come of Age and become one of the most sought after bands on the festival scene. Having sold out London’s Alexandra Palace and 02 Arena within 6 months of each other and currently on a sold out European Tour, the guys will be Balearic bound once more for a headline show in Ibiza before continuing stateside where their success has also soared.  Support on this show comes from Palma Violets, who have just completed the NME Awards Tour and are arguably the most hyped band since The Libertines.  A special show guaranteed.

Justin Young, The Vaccines said: ‘We still have incredibly fond memories of the first time we played Ibiza Rocks. It was so much fun. It was in the middle of our first busy summer playing festivals and the whole thing felt like a holiday. So much so, that we’re coming back. We’re already excited at the prospect.” 

Since supporting Dizzee Rascal & The Streets at Ibiza Rocks two years, Rizzle Kicks’ success has gone stratospheric. There’s a mutual love between the Rizzles and the Rocks – they even filmed their video for ‘Dreamers’ at Ibiza Rocks House at Pikes last summer. Having hooked up with Norman Cook and Neptunes super producer Pharrell Williams on their forthcoming new album and currently touring the U.S with fellow Rocks headliner Ed Sheeran, Rizzle Kicks will bring BIG things back to the famous open-air Ibiza Rocks stage this summer.

But before that, Ibiza Rocks will kick off the season in style in with the unique swagger and sound of Jake Bugg – BRIT award nominee for Best British Breakthrough Artist and one of the most hotly anticipated singer/songwriters of this generation. Previously announced artists also include Example who will make a triumphant return to the island with his full live festival show for his headline gigs and, arguably the ‘must see’ live band of the moment, Foals, who will headline the Ibiza Rocks Closing Party, supported by newly announced Sydney based duo Jagwar Mar who are hotly tipped as ‘ones to watch’ for 2013.

Ibiza Rocks Group is also pleased to announce a new partnership with MTV, to screen live performances, exclusive artist interviews and all the highlights from the 16 week long series of outdoor gigs from the Ibiza Rocks Hotel this summer. Seven shows will be broadcast in total, with 3 x 30 min artist specials from Ibiza Rocks, and 2 x 60 min (multi-artist) compilation shows incorporating live track selection and exclusive interviews from Ibiza Rocks and its sister across the water. Coverage will also feature interview footage from Ibiza Rocks House at Pikes Hotel, the legendary rock ‘n’ roll Ibiza retreat where the headline bands stay. Award-winning London based production company, JJ Stereo, will produce all content.

More ‘must see’ solo stars, bands and cutting edge DJ’s will be announced over the coming weeks, so fans can forget the mud and rain this summer and start looking forward to the gig, and holiday of a lifetime on the White Island.
