VAMP ROCKS HALLOWEEN!

IR House at Pikes master logo 20cm def

…a night of scary surprises, horrible hellbabies and freaky fun…

Thursday 31 October from 9pm

‘Slip out from the shadows, you creatures of the Ibiza night,
Halloween is creeping up and it’s not a pretty sight,
Ghosts and Ghouls, Spooks and Sprites,
Blood and Gore when this Vamp bites…’

After last year’s scarily successful party of the same time, Halloween ‘wildcard’, VAMP is back in black this Thursday 31st October for a night of toe-tingling, blood-curdling madness up at Ibiza’s favourite haunted house on the hill, the 400 year old finca that is Ibiza Rocks House at Pikes Hotel.

VAMP-HALLOWEEN-POSTER

As per last year, organisers of the Halloween extravaganza Jillian Canney (FIX Ibiza) and Leanne Chilton (Ibiza Rocks) are pulling out the stops, diving head first into their cast iron cauldron of morbid mischief and saucy spells, their ultimate goal to trick and treat Ibiza’s naughtiest nocturnal creatures to a Halloween they may never forget.

Providing the spooky soundtrack throughout the night, DJs BONES, STRAY KITTEN, DAVID PHILLIPS, MISS CHADDERS and STEF SWINGLER are the demons in charge of the dancefloor.  Local duo SERENADE will also be creeping out of the shadows for a live (as opposed to undead) performance very much based on the event’s central theme of Halloween. All of the above combined and plenty of opportunity to bust one’s monster moves on the dancefloor.

Amongst other scary surprises being concocted for the party, beware of the Bloody Bathtub, where guests are invited to scream, shriek and even sing the night away in the SCAREOKE competition. Prize for the best crooner…

VAMP2012_JILL

Talking of prizes, Head Vamps Jill and Leanne will also be dishing out a few of those along the course of the evening for the best Halloween costumes, fancy dress pretty much obligatory for this particular party. Think vampires, werewolves, witches, faeries, demons, devils, spirits, shapeshifters, ghouls, ghosts, zombies, monsters, mummies, and mynaeds but don’t be scared, any other variety of spooky/inventive/topical/comedy fancy dress get up is welcome to join in the manky mix.

Keeping up the Halloween spirit, literally, local spiritualist and medium Lisa Chadderton (Garden of Light) will be conducting a series of one-on-one psychic readings throughout the evening. A limited number of time slots are available for booking and reservations are recommended.

In charge of lighting and special effects in and around the hotel and its grounds, island experts, Aladdin Lights are back on board to help turn this Halloween into a veritable Nightmare on Pike St. Man behind that particular operation, Simon Hall promises an assortment of tricks and treats to make you turn in your grave.

As far as fodder goes, organisers have another bonus lined up for their gory guests with local catering company, Cook Ibiza stepping up to provide a Halloween BBQ with a difference at an additional cost of 20€ per head. With a menu very much in keeping with the theme, the Cook Ibiza team will be serving up a feast fit for the most bloodthirsty of critters from 9pm-11pm, with a selection of the finest cuts of meat, all sourced from local suppliers and accompanied by a selection of salads and other yummy Halloween treats. Advance booking is recommended.  http://www.grubclub.com/Cook-Ibiza

As a final point to note, and due to public demand, last year’s Star of the Halloween Show, The Gnarly Witch will also make a return visit to Pikes for Halloween, bringing with her a new addition to the proceedings, the HellBaby, offspring of the Gnarly one and spawned by Satan himself. Devilled Eggs, if you will…

All that, plus a whole lot more blood, guts and gore; a monster mash from 9pm till the last banshee wails.

Tickets are now on sale at 10€ and prior purchase is recommended for guaranteed entry. Price includes a trick or treat, a witch’s sup and a bloody good night out.

Still not scared enough? With the Ibiza family spirit in mind, we also suggest a quick stop off at Bar Grial this Halloween for a bit of Colin Peters before heading to the Boutique Hostal Salinas from 5am where the Halloween celebrations continue till God Knows What Time…

SAYDIBELLE’S INTERNSHIP FOR FIX IBIZA …SO FAR!

5 months down the line, doing an internship with FIX IBIZA… a well-known PR and Events Management company.  I have decided to write a blog to tell you how it’s going!

 So, how did I get to where I am now!?

Well, it all started last summer, when I was thinking about university choices and my current work experiences… having just moved to Ibiza and with a passion for Media, I decided I wanted to expand my knowledge and see what was out there for me in my new stomping ground of  Ibiza, and that’s when  I got the chance to help at FIX IBIZA… those 2 weeks work experience jam-packed with  events including Ibiza Rocks, Rock ‘N’ Mola and Els Dissabtes Al Mercat Vell showed me what its really like to be part of a PR and Events Management company; and changed my perception on what I wanted to do with my life…

WHICH CHOICE SHOULD I MAKE , UNIVERSITY OR GAP YEAR/ EXPERIENCE?

So, I decided to take a gap year and here I am… I asked FIX IBIZA if they wouldn’t mind taking me on as an intern for a year after I had finished my A-levels, with absolute delight and without hesitation they accepted…

End of June …a step into the real world of work, but… a new, exciting, miraculous experience adventure began…

Jillian once posted to me a quote from ’10 things you should expect in your first PR Job’ … “ When someone says expect the unexpected, slap them in the face and say you didn’t expect that did you?”  Even though this made me laugh, it reflected that I must ‘expect the unexpected’  and face challenges, but that’s what I need …to face any fears and expand my skills.  As tennis player, Arthur Ashe once said; “Start where you are, use what you have, do what you can” …

My first taster of the crazy summer ahead with FIX was the Grand Opening of Ocean Beach Club, whose motto proclaimed, ‘A New Era for San Antonio’ . Assisting at the door with the press was a great way for me to communicate and to build up my confidence… Apart from working , there was also time to be able to enjoy the event, so there I was sitting in VIP with free drinks and classic tunes blaring out from the DJ booth……what more could an 18 year old girl want!? Seriously though, being a part the organisation of such an event and then attending  … I knew I had taken the right choice and would have one hell of a great time ahead…

Secondly, the well-known enterprise Ibiza Rocks. As well as promoting each event, by doing social media updates on Twitter and Facebook, I attended each event FIX IBIZA went to, these were: Ed Sheeran , The Maccabees, Kaiser Chiefs, Ben Howard, Kasabian, Major Lazer, Happy Mondays, Bloc Party, Two Door Cinema Club  and Mark Ronson and Zane Lowe’ … what an experience that was, It was great watching live concerts and getting to know the local press. Chatting to them and finding out what they do was a real insight (Ade Harris, Claire Bradley  (Ibiza-Blog), Mc Crackin(Ibiza Spotlight) Johnny Lee (MixMag/Sundance),Mike Parry (Lucky life TV) and many others.

To get a different aspect of being at the event, working wise, FIX set me up at the closing event with a press pass meaning I could take pictures within press boundaries, which I thoroughly enjoyed! … Not only that, there was an after party at the lovely and unique hotel, ‘Ibiza Rocks House at Pikes’, which I had never really been to before, so it was a great, relaxed, fun experience ! One thing which I will not forget is having a good chit chat to Mark Ronson in Freddie’s Bar ( + picture taken!) …


Throughout the summer ( June- August) a new event was bought to the island from England ‘UK’s biggest indie night’ ‘PROPAGANDA’ which was held at Sankeys and then at Es Paradis… I loved it…it was perfect for my age group,   the music was absolutely great , with DJ’s such as Matt Horne and Nick Grimshaw  from Radio 1 … Meeting Matt Horne aka Gavin from ‘ Gavin and Stacey’ was fun!


Urban in Ibiza (Atzaro) … the coolest urban art I have seen, featuring pieces from Goldie (Goldie himself was even there!) … There was such a nice atmosphere … Live graffiti artists, fashion show, live music… chill out area … superb… being able to help organise the event was an eye-opener, seeing what really goes on with such a big event was really useful, with so many different things going on, it really was magical.


The last event, which I went to in the summer season, was again held at the unique hotel ‘Ibiza Rocks House at Pikes’ – Govert de Roos. This event was a talk, from de Roos himself, a legendary  Rock ‘N’ Roll photographer from Holland. The outcome was a lovely relaxed and interesting evening, with an exhibition of his work, in which you got a real insight of his life and how he got to where he is now… kind of what I’m doing now, but not as extreme !!


Apart from all these wonderful experiences, I have also been in charge of compiling all the Dossiers for each event, which is time consuming but interesting -getting familiar with all the clients and keeping up with media issues, creating a mighty fine database of all FIX IBIZA’S clients, helping out with some press releases, keeping up to date with each event and promoting well known DJs such as ANTZ, assisting at interviews with Goldie and  Govert de Roos, plus general office assistance…

Now that summer 2012 has ended and winter 2012 has come upon us, the last event which was held was the first ever Halloween at Ibiza Rocks House at Pikes Hotel- ‘VAMP‘… this was extremely fun to organise, making homemade decorations of ghosts and witches legs… sadly I was unable to attend… it looked incredible and I have read great reviews of what an amazing evening everyone had…VAMPIFIED indeed!

Writing this blog, I would like to thank Jillian and Elena considerably for letting me have this opportunity, already it has been seriously, once in a life time experience , couldn’t of imagined this time a year a go I would have been doing this! … Not only have I had all these great experiences but Jillian and Elena have made me feel very welcome and even though they are my super cool bosses, they are  friends too… there have been some funny times…

It is only November and I have many more adventures to come … I cannot wait to see what lies ahead for the upcoming winter and 2013  … I have learnt already heaps … Thanks a million guys… BRING IT ON!!!
