Whether you are looking to see the world’s best DJs perform and dance the night away, or catch a live band create stunning atmosphere and perform distinctive, original material - Ibiza really has it all. At the hub of the mayhem – Ibiza Rocks – the heart of the live music scene in Ibiza and the best place to see the biggest acts play under the Balearic stars.
Here are five acts we are tipping to shake Ibiza Rocks this summer:
Rock legends Kaiser Chiefs will perform at Ibiza Rocks on the 3rd August, joining a select list of authentic artists who remain a huge part of the white isle’s history, from Pete Doherty to Arctic Monkeys. The Brit-award winning Indie rock band will be performing all the hits from their five albums including I Predict a Riot, Coming Home, Every Day I Love You Less and Less, Never Miss a Beat and Ruby – the tracks which made the band what they are today.
The Leeds band fronted by BBC’s ‘The Voice’ Rickey Wilson has sold countless records worldwide. Their album ‘Employment’ enjoyed critical and commercial success with over three million copies sold. It has won the band three Brit Awards, including the award for Best British Group, a NME award for Best Album, and was shortlisted for the Mercury Prize.

Best known for his number one hits “Dance wiv Me”, “Bonkers”, “Holiday”, “Dirtee Disco”, and “Shout”, his debut album ‘Boy in da Corner’ is considered a grime classic and earned him the 2003 Mercury Prize Award. Dizzee is swapping the urban London life for sunny Spain this summer and will be guaranteed to bring his a-game to Ibiza Rocks.
Wolf Alice is a four-piece alternative rock band from North London, formed initially as a duo in 2009. They release their official debut single “Fluffy” in February 2013, and the single “Bros” followed in May of that year. The north London foursome took three years to get their debut album finished and record. In the meantime they gigged tirelessly around the country, amassing a loyal following for their sweetly savage songs, energetic shows and obvious commitment to having fun. The band will perform at the Ibiza rocks closing party on the 14th September.

It garnered critical acclaim as well as a Grammy nomination for Best Electronic/ Dance Album.
