Carl Cox Birthday Special

Carl Cox celebrates his birthday today (Its The Big 50) with a special free party down at Sands in Playa Den Bossa. He has already played the opening party there this year which sound really cool. This time, he has a few friends with him to make the day that bit more special. Pete Tong will also be performing. The set times are as follows (UK Time)

14:00 to 16:00 Igor Marijuan (Ibiza Sonica)
16:00 to 18:00 Pete Tong
18:00 to 20:00 Carl Cox
20:00 to 21:00 Igor Marijuan
21:00 to 23:00 Antz

If your in the area, head down, its a free party and Sands is a nice beach bar with amazing food. If your not in Ibiza at the moment, then you can still be part of the action and listen live online through Ibiza Sonica at www.ibizasonica.com

NOTE** they have said different set times on air which had Pete tong and Carl Cox switching times so im not sure which is correct.

Ibiza Rocks Bar – Playa Den Bossa

Ibiza Rocks announced last week that they will be opening an Ibiza Rocks Bar / Dinner in Playa Den Bossa for the 2012 season. Traditionally, most things Ibiza Rocks have been in the surrounds of San Antonio.

Moving into Playa Den Bossa will raise some eyebrows and no doubt some people will moan. I personally think it would be a good move. and here is why

  1. I have openly moaned about Ibiza Rocks on here before but one thing that i do love about Ibiza Rocks Bar is the food. I dont recall having some ware reliably great to eat in PDB at good prices. Ibiza Rocks at the very minimum will provide some great food at great prices. I recommend the pancakes for breakfast!
  2. It opens up getting to Ibiza Rocks, ive only stayed in PDB at the very start of the season when not much is open so im not sure if this was put on anyway, but i will presume transport will be put on from the venue.
  3. It will provide some more pre parties. No town can have to many pre parties!

Ibiza Rocks 2012

2011 was a great year for the Ibiza Rocks guys, they had a great lineup of talent on during the summer and they also went all Ska with their closing party when Madness took to the stage to finish of the year. Madness playing at Ibiza Rocks fit in well with a whole host of gigs from bands, groups that you would not expect to see on the Island and it all seems to have gone down well.

Ibiza Rocks are already however, busy planning next year. The Hotel opens from the 15th May with weekly gigs taking place from the 6th June for 17 weeks. You can expect the usual top class lineup every Wednesday throughout the summer and if your staying at the hotel the your gig ticket is already included in the price.

New for 2012 are Saturday nights, if bands are not completely your thing you can go to the hotel on a┬áSaturday┬áto see a top class range of Dj’s playing on the main stage next to the pool. Last year, people like Annie Mac and FatBoy Slim played in the hotel, other dates that stick in my mind in the past is Stave Angello with his Size Matters party.

Ibiza Diary (Coming Next Week)

This is a quick blog pre next weeks diary entries. No doubt whatever we got up to over there next week will provide some insight into the island and of course our silly raver heads but I just wanted to outline what our battle plans were so if anyone has a special interest in a place they can tune in to see what the place is like from a true consumers point of view. No DJ favortism, music mag bias, snotty journalist write up, just pure 100% how it is gonna be for YOU or rather how it was for me and my merry band of trance warriors, techno kids and minimal yeads!!

We have made a commitment to each other to have it as large as humanly possible and I promise you all that I will bring describe it to you in as much delicious detail as I (legally) can!!

The definates are Circo Loco @ DC10, Be @ Space, Cream @ Amnesia, Zoo Project. I am of course allowing for a few nights of spontaneity to see where the island takes me. I will also try to check out Sankeys and feel that I have missed out on the Fiesta del Agua in the past so will try to write up what a night at that landmark party is like.

If your interested in any of these then check out my Ibiza diary next week…

Peace, Love and Techno
