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 Saturday to 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.
The Ibiza Rocks house will be staying on for next year which is Pikes hotel, If you have a little bit more money to spend on your accommodation, then the Ibiza Rocks House is definitely worth considering, the house its self is steeped in Ibiza tales of celebrity debauchery! The house plays host to a private after party for the main gig every week which has a strict invite only policy and staying at the house gets you that privilege.
Another new addition for 2012 (i think) is the Ibiza Rocks Hostel, think of it as Ibiza rocks hotel on a budget! It’s not far from the hotel and you still get all the access to the hotel as the hotel guests but its a bit cheaper and the rooms sleep 3 people.
Also in 2012, the Boat parties will be continuing, i haven’t been on the Ibiza Rocks boat party myself but if you love Ibiza Rocks then im sure its worth the effort, and don’t forget the after party, all gig tickets will again get you into the after party which still seems to be in Es Pardise. I personally have had a mixed bag when it comes to the after parties, the first one i went to was top-notch, great Dj’s and a variety of music and rooms to keep you busy. My second trip, was not much to write about, the music was a disappointment for me and the crowd just didn’t seem to get into it, maybe it was just a bad week.
And finally… if your still with me and reading this! The Ibiza Rocks Bar, it’s on the beach in San Antonio and it used to be Bar M, Again, another mixed bag for me, The bar itself is great, its been a firm fixture of San Antonio for as long as i can recall. If you want a fresh drink during the day, this is your place, if you want some great food, whether its breakfast or lunch, then this is DEFINITELY your place, for the money the food they are serving is brilliant, ive tried lots of the menu now and ive never been disappointed. The music policy in the bar has changed from Bar M, naturally, for me personally it was all just a bit indy overload, which was a shame because it stopped me spending more time in the bar, especially as a pre party venue as if im getting ready for a night out, i didn’t want to listen to indy music to get me in the mood!
Ibiza rocks will be back in 2012 bigger than ever before!
