Ibiza Rocks return in 2018 with a blistering new summer’s worth of programming. Having made public their decision to ditch live music in favour of electronic DJs and MCs, there’s a lot of new changes implemented this season at the home of the Ibiza pool party. They’ve also made improvements to the music arena, including the installation of a new stage, VIP platform and VOID soundsystem. Nice!
After wowing the masses at Oval Space last December, Toddla T brings his Steezy Wonderland to poolside not once, not twice, not even thrice, but FOUR action packed times. Taking over Tuesdays throughout June, UK hip-hop sensation J Hus will be the headline guest on the first and penultimate week, while Krept & Konan join Toddla & co. during the second and final week. It’s gonna be pure carnival scenes with a soundtrack featuring grime, garage, dancehall and urban music. These are parties to really get your skank on to!
UK badboys Garage Nation will also be throwing their own brand of mischief at the award winning venue. They have two early season dates and two late season dates. If you’re a fan of the music they call “garridge”, bookmark 21st & 28th June and 6th & 13th September. Expect headline sets from UKG’s biggest pioneers, including Luck & Neat, Oxide & Neutrino and Matt Jam Lamont. It’s going to get bubblin’!
If you prefer your grooves a little more Balearic, then Lovely Laura and Ben Santiago have a trio of really cool pool parties lined-up. The saxophonist and DJ double act will be playing in tandem on 7th & 14th June plus 20th September. Get your air sax at the ready!
Peak season, Craig David returns with his TS5 for a third year of parties, in what is fast becoming San Antonio’s most popular night. Craig hybrid show of singing, DJing and MCing regularly sold out the past two seasons, and if you’re in town on a Tuesday it’s a must do. Securing advance tickets for this party in particular is highly recommended.
Another one of their 2017 success stories is back for a second season. Cuckoo Land become a worker’s hangout in a short space of time. Resident house master Sonny Fodera will be keeping things strictly underground each and every Friday from the 8th June.
We’ve might’ve saved the biggest for last though: two brand new parties, one hosted by UK chart warriors Rudimental and the second headed-up by super producer MK. They run Thursday and Mondays respectfully, and you can expect some huge names to be supporting the hosts.
Of course, it all gets underway officially on 1st June when Rudimental and Sonny Fodera launch their 2018 season in emphatic style. Mine’s a piña colada – see you at poolside!
Less than a month to go before the opening weekend. Tickets for all dates can be found below.
