Stormzy burst on to the ultra competitive UK market with his Youtube upload of his ‘WickedSkengman’ freestyles boasting six figure viewings, followed by massive reaction to his independent freestyle single release ‘Shut Up’, igniting a new generation of UK rap and garnering universal support from peers, including fellow We Are Rockstars artists Wiley and Skepta. The first unsigned rapper to appear on Later With Jools Holland and the recipient of the 215 MOBO Awards from Best Male and Best Grime Act, Stormzy is one of the most important UK artists. His four-date residency on Friday night in Ibiza Rocks Hotel – June 3, July 8. August 5 and Sept 9 – is further testament to the credibility of the We Are Rockstars party.

Jordan Hallpike, Head of Talent & Programming said: “One thing we’re always focused on at Rocks is championing new talent. Stormzy first came to our attention a few years ago with his Wicked Skengman cyphers and it was clear he was a highly talented, super focused and creative MC. We gave him his first show supporting Dizzee in July last year and – blown away – we immediately invited him back in headline our Rinse FM show in August. What impressed us most was not only his skills and ability, but how professional and determined he was. 2016 is going to be his year, he’s breaking out in a huge way and we’re delighted to have him headlining his own #Merky parties this summer!”

A host of further line-up additions to the We Are Rockstars line up are to made over the coming weeks.
