Ever evolving, with a fluid musical identity, Ibiza Rocks is the reigning home of the Ibiza pool party. The island institution has more than ever going on this summer, and invites you to live the daylife in 2019 over 18-weeks of debauchery on the white isle. In another blockbuster season, here’s the pick of what they have planned.
Amnesia presents Do Not Sleep
An established piece of the island’s underground landscape, nomadic party Do Not Sleep moves from a covered night time event to a bright new slot at poolside. With seasoned resident Darius Syrossian in the driving seat delivering the best the house and techno has to offer, we’re excited to see the new format. In association with Amnesia – the home of the nocturnal version – Do Not Sleep splashes down on four select Fridays.
Cuckoo Land Ibiza Pool Party
Tech house haven Cuckoo Land has made Fridays their own the last two years. With Solotoko boss Sonny Fodera at the helm, in addition to guests in form of Huxley, Max Chapman and Friend Within, you can expect summer heaters whilst you cool off in the pool.
DJ EZ's Eluzive Ibiza Pool Party
DJ EZ will be hammering that controller of his every Thursday in June and September at his brand spanking new Eluzive concept. Expect UKG, bass and house as one of the garage masters gets to conduct his own brand of chaos from the stage island. Spin backs and reloads guaranteed.
Brand new for 2019 – but also, in way, old – is La Discothéque. As a giant disco ball shimmers above the pool, an array of expert selectors will be spinning some throwback delights. Providing the groove to 5 soulful Monday afternoons are the likes of Derrick Carter, Artwork, Crazy P Soundsystem, Greg Wilson and Norman Jay MBE. Over the years the venue has seen just about every style of music played, so disco is long overdue in our book. Starting in late August and running through until the end of September, the programming and timing seem to target a slightly maturer, discerning clientele.
Craig David's TS5 Pool Party
Finally, Craig David is back on merit alone. Easily the most popular day party in the entire resort, we doth our cap to Craig for continually selling out each and every week throughout summer. Rolling back the years and performing a highly-skilled hybrid show, where the main man sings, raps, freestyles and mixes all at the same time. If TS5 Tuesday are on your agenda, then you’ll want to make sure you sweep up tickets well in advance. Tickets are often like goldust! There ain’t nothing like this.
Stormzy #Merky Festival
We almost forgot to mention Stormzy exclusive #MERKY festival – a two-day double-header featuring Croydon’s finest and his friends from the world of UK hip-hop and grime at the height of summer. Ibiza Rocks crams all this and more into an action-packed weeks’ program.
Other events they have going on across summer include Jax Jones’ new residency, the anarchic Bongo’s Bingo, plus Rudimental, sax goddess Lovely Laura and hip-hop connoisseurs Applebum – you’re pretty spoilt for choice, with all tastes catered for.
Tickets for the above shows are on sale here. We’ll see you poolside – ours is a pina colada!
