Stormzy x Ibiza Rocks: The Next Chapter
Prepare for things to get #MERKY once more at Ibiza Rocks Hotel this summer as Stormzy returns to curate the first ever #MERKY Festival. 2017 looks sure to be his biggest year yet following recent successes such as debut album ‘Gang Signs & Prayer’ going straight to Number 1 (it is now certified Gold), a sold out UK tour, THAT Brit Awards Ed Sheeran performance and collaboration plus an upcoming performance at the legendary Glastonbury.
Mike feels like part of the Rocks family. An innovator and a character who we admired from the start having first put him on our stage back in 2015. We gave him his first show supporting Dizzee Rascal and it was clear at that moment that we were going to do more great things together. Later that summer and the first time in our history we offered an act that had played support, a headline show that same year. Cue one of the biggest We Are Rockstars crowds and reactions of the season alongside a clear indication that we were witnessing the start of the South London stars takeover.
Moving onto 2016, we pushed the boundaries once more as we welcomed Stormzy back to the hotel but this time with a 4-date #MERKY summer residency, the first ever grime residency in Ibiza. Together, we sparked change on the island’s club listings whilst fully championing the unmissable movement in the tyde for grimes position in the music industry.
#MERKY FESTIVAL 2017
Ibiza Rocks Hotel is known as the home of live music in Ibiza. Since launching in 2005, we’ve destroyed preconceptions of Ibiza by bringing live music and fresh energy to the White Isle changing the game in a dance-fuelled world and leading the way for live music in Ibiza. Fast forward to 2017, we prepare to step the game up even further by bringing a one off festival concept to Ibiza for the first time and Stormzy trailblazing it for us!
