Ibiza Rocks was born out of a deep desire to push the musical boundaries beyond dance music and keep Ibiza current, credible and alive. To be at the very forefront of new music, be the innovators of bringing new sounds to the island, provide unrivalled experiences for a new generation of music lovers and create an incredible atmosphere in a unique venue.

Established in 2005, we became the home of live music in Ibiza and are proud to still hold that title. From The Libertines to Ed Sheeran, Chic feat. Nile Rodgers to Rudimental, some of the biggest acts in the world have played live on our famous stage and that list of performers continues to grow as we provide a platform for fresh talent and further champion the established.

Fast forward to 2017 as we brought an end to a very successful 12 years of Live Music before transitioning to the Home of the Pool Party. Featuring Royal Blood, Stormzy, Dua Lipa and The Kooks… we finished in style!



We’ve teamed up with man of the moment Stormzy to curate the first ever #MERKY Festival featuring a hand picked line-up of the hottest urban music stars, programmed across 10 hours of daytime poolside sets, main stage festival performances, indoor hangouts and a HUGE closing performance from Stormzy himself. Following on from a game changing 4-date #MERKY Residency with us last summer, 2017 is his year and this is one Ibiza exclusive you won’t want to miss out on.


One of the hottest talents in the world right now, Dua Lipa has steadily been on our radar for the past 12 months. Establishing herself with breakout tracks ‘Be The One’ and ‘Hotter Than Hell’ plus recent collaborations with the likes of Sean Paul and Martin Garrix have fully cemented her status as one of the most exciting female artists in the UK right now.

Shortlisted for the Brits Critics Choice Award this year, get ready for Dua to bring the party as she makes her Ibiza Rocks debut this July!



Grammy award-winning, continuously chart topping and globally renowned, we welcome back the mighty Clean Bandit to our stage. From ‘Rockabye’ to ‘Rather Be,’ prepare to reach next levels of feel good and realisation that you actually know every single word. The ultimate soundtrack of hits as you warm up for another big night out on the island, there is a reason why this will be the band’s 4th time playing in Ibiza for us!


Rocks favourites Bastille make a highly anticipated return to Ibiza this August. First playing our stage in 2014 (supported by Rag’n’Bone Man fact fans) Dan and the boys returned to the charts last year with another Number 1 album following their breakout ‘Bad Blood’ and have rightfully earned themselves the reputation as one of the best live bands in the UK. Imagine hearing the opening intro on ‘Pompeii’ live after a few beers as you get emotional with your arms around your mates shoulder telling them that you’ll never forget this holiday…



Special guests and British rock royalty Primal Scream help make up this unique live line-up programme for the upcoming season. Glasgow’s finest will be making their Ibiza debut Ibiza Rocks Hotel. Ibiza + Primal Scream – you’re welcome.


Rocks favourites The Kooks have been part of the family since it all began and they will be joining us once more for the ultimate Closing Party. Back with a brand new single ‘Be Who You Are’ and their latest collection of work ‘Best Off… So Far,’ the band are currently touring the UK with this extensive track list and you can be part of the action this September.

Brighton band Fickle Friends help make up the line-up with their infectious indie-pop sound and feel good vibes. Having recently recorded their debut album in LA, get your Shazam at the ready!
