Ibiza Rocks Line Up 2016

Posted on March 15, 2016

Words: Iain Thomson

With the memories created from last years tenth anniversary season still fresh in the mind, Ibiza Rocks, home of live music on the clubbing capital, has announced details of the 2016 Ibiza season and, as always, there are unbelievably exciting dates to be marked in the diary.

The summer kicks off on Wednesday June 15 with the return of the Slaves, after a spectacular performance alongside The Libertines for the tenth birthday party. The bands debut album, ‘Are You Satisfied’ has enjoyed huge critical acclaim and the energy charged Ibiza Rocks performance confirms the opinion that they are currently one of the most exciting live acts on the scene. The guys are understandably buzzing at the opening party return: “Last year it was madness and one of the best experiences we’ve had as a band so far. We’re fans of The Libertines so that was an honour and we had non-stop fun. Ibiza being associated with clubbers makes it all the more special when you’re playing really loud rock to everybody. We can’t wait to get back to Ibiza Rocks. What a crowd.”

The Ibiza Rocks birthday party is always one of the first dates we look for, there is always something special in store and 2016 is no different, with the much-anticipated return of LCD Soundsystem. An inspirational appearance and performance in 2004 in Manumission’s Music Box for the tenth anniversary of the great part cemented the belief in the live concept and saw the Ibiza Rocks concept born the following year. Moths after the last Ibiza Rocks performance the band announced a final farewell sold out show at Madison Square Garden. With fans all over the world reaching fever pitch at the news of the comeback, Ibiza Rocks faithful can rest easy in the knowledge that they have a chance to catch them on July 6, for part one of the two part birthday.

Part two of the birthday celebration this year sees Diplo’s Major Lazer Soundsyatem take centre stage, bringing an eclectic mix of house, dancehall and electro to the heart of San Antonio. Since the first appearance on the Ibiza Rocks stage in 2012, Major Lazer has become one of the most in-demand live acts, with single ‘Lean On’ achieving over 540 million streams and 1.2 billion youtube views! It’s another massive date for the Ibiza Rocks season and a fitting part two of the birthday celebration, but there are not to be missed dates throughout the summer. Look out for Jess Glynne headlining her own show on July 20, Tinie Tempah rekindling his love affair with the Ibiza Rocks stage on July 27, the Kaiser Chiefs returning for a fifth appearance on August 3 and festival heavyweights Faithless rounding off a massive August on the 31st.

Shane Murray, Brand Director, Ibiza Rocks Group said: “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 world’s biggest bands and we couldn’t be prouder. With Faithless and Major Lazer Soundsystem joining us we’ve got three global festival headliners at the Ibiza Rocks Hotel this year and that’s because there simply isn’t another gig atmosphere like it for artists and fans alike. Then we have new talents like Slaves, Jack Garratt and Jess Glynne who we’ve 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. There’s more to come and we can’t wait.”
