Ibiza, 21st March 2013 (FIX Ibiza): As per the last eight summers, Ibiza Rocks guarantees hot weather, cool accommodation and 16 weeks of phenomenal live gigs right in the heart of San Antonio. Joining the already impressive line up for 2013 are Bastille – the hottest new breakthrough act making their Rocks debut, Chase and Status and Tinie Tempah – two of the defining artists of the past 5 years coming back with new albums and bigger shows and not to mention one of the most important guitar bands of the decade, Franz Ferdinand. Four chart-topping exceptional live acts for back-to-back headline shows in Ibiza.

Having first smashed the charts with their killer hit Take Me Out and their self-titled debut album in 2002, Glasgow boys Franz Ferdinand are back, and Balearic bound. They’ve ticked off a Mercury Music Prize, BRIT Awards for Best British Group and Best British Rock Act, NME Awards, multiple Grammy Award nominations, sold over 3 million albums worldwide and are soon to release their hugely anticipated fourth studio album. This band were a huge influence on Ibiza Rocks, helping fuel the concept of promoting gigs for ‘dance kids who rock and rock kids who dance.’ Ibiza Rocks is exceptionally proud to be bringing one of the world’s best live bands to make their debut on the famous open-air Ibiza Rocks stage this summer

Alex Kapranos said: “This is the first time we’ve been to Ibiza Rocks, so are looking forward to it. Paul’s been and told us all about it, so we’re expecting a great crowd.”

Bastille’s just released debut album Bad Blood went straight to the top of the UK album charts, with No.2 single Pompeii taking over the airwaves across Europe. Fronted by UK singer/songwriter Dan Smith, this is a ‘must see’ live act on the festival scene this summer and Ibiza Rocks is delighted to have Bastille on the bill.  Support comes from hotly tipped and indefinable Bristol mob The Other Tribe.  Championed by both indie and electronic music lovers, the band cross musical boundaries and their illustrious new single Skirts is as infectious as their live set.

Bastille’s Dan Smith said: We’re really looking forward to getting out to Ibiza for the first time. Being able to play a gig and then go to the beach will be a massive novelty, and it’ll be nice to see a bit of proper summer and try to head to some of the massive clubs as well. I hear the Ibiza Rocks gigs are great and we’ve been told they throw a pretty decent party so it should be a lot of fun.”

Chase and Status are undoubtedly one of the most exciting and successful British bands of the past decade. Their double platinum, second album No More Idols sold over 600,000 copies in the UK alone and spawned over 2 million singles. They were the biggest selling band in the UK in 2011, behind Coldplay, sold out tour after tour in the UK, Europe, US and Australia and played live at 36 festivals around the world last summer. Phenomenal track Big Man with Liam Bailey has provided a taster of what’s to come from their highly anticipated third album, due for release in summer.

Chase and Status said: “We’re excited to bring our live show to Ibiza Rocks again this summer – the crowd is always amazing!”

 

Tinie Tempah is neither a stranger to the Ibiza Rocks stage and always puts on an extra special show – last time he performed he bound off stage, stunning one group of fans by reappearing to perform from their bedroom balcony! Since becoming the undisputed breakout star of 2010, Tinie’s career has soared. Debut single Pass Out exploded around the globe and follow up tracks Frisky, Written in the Stars and Miami 2 Ibiza all had the same effect. Debut album Disc-Overy is still regarded as one of the most refreshing and confident UK debuts of all time.  Back to headline, live under the stars, Tinie Tempah is sure to showcase new material from his highly anticipated second album Demonstration and to put on a high-energy show packed with smash hits and more surprises.

Franz Ferdinand, Bastille, Chase and Status, Tinie Tempah and The Other Tribe join previously announced acts Jake Bugg, Rizzle Kicks, The Vaccines, Example, Ellie Goulding, Dizzee Rascal, Foals, Palma Violets, Jagwar Ma and Redlight on the incredible line-up of chart-toppers and festival favourites who are set for Ibiza Rocks this summer. MTV UK will be the exclusive TV host, bringing millions of people closer to the action when it broadcasts the live footage on MTV Music and MTV Live HD.

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 of Ibiza.
