Ibiza Rocks Ones to Watch 2017

Following on from a year where we sadly lost some true music icons in Prince, David Bowie, George Michael and the talented up and coming Viola Beach it was easy to look on 2016 as a tragic year. However, there was still plenty to be positive about with big albums from Skepta, The 1975, Frank Ocean, Radiohead and incredible debuts from the likes of Chance The Rapper, Anderson Paak, Kaytranada and Christine & the Queens.

With exciting new music on the horizon already announced from The xx, Arcade Fire, Clean Bandit, London Grammar, Sampha, Vampire Weekend and more 2017 already feels like it’s going to be a big year for music. But, which up and coming acts are going to break through to join them?

Every year we try and predict just that with our January Rocks Ones to Watch Playlist on Spotify. Listen and Subscribe to this years playlist or have a look back at who our picks for 2016 were here.
