Guitar Heroes Ahoy! Ibiza Rocks Line-ups 2011

Guitar Heroes Ahoy! Ibiza Rocks Line-ups 2011In the beginning people publically turned up their noses at the notion of Ibiza Rocks. Indie bands in Ibiza? They scoffed. That just won't work!

Six years later, the sceptics are washing the egg off their face and the Ibiza Rocks is snugly entrenched as one of the island's biggest and best-respected nights. This year the brand has swooped over to invade neighbouring Mallorca, meaning Ibiza Rocks now takes place on Wednesdays. One night is much like another to the crowds of excitable teenagers that populate the Hotel and no doubt the party will continue with its usual breathless abandon.

As ever, the Rocks team has put together a line-up that like a good wedding outfit incorporates something old, something new, something borrowed and something blue (the pool counts, right?) Speaking of which, returning guests include the Friendly Fires whose 'Jump In The Pool' is set to give the hotel's liability insurance provider the heebie-jeebies all over again.

Also coming back for more are quasi-resident rapper Dizzee Rascal, plus the likes of Chase & Status, The Wombats, Tinie Tempah, Fatboy Slim and Biffy Clyro - who headline the sixth birthday party on 20 July. High profile new comers include The Vaccines, Katy B and Labrinth.

The line-up hints at the particular genius of night. Good marketing and flawless organisation help, but the bottom line is Ibiza Rocks rocks because it knows how to cater to every musical taste going. Want Top 10 artists? They got 'em. Hip hop? Got it. Dubstep? Sure. Old school house? That too. Classic 80s band for the grown-ups? Check (this year it's Madness on 14 Sept).

As icing on the cake, they have American superstar Mark Ronson presenting his Record Collection 13 July, and Rocks has recruited BBC1 jock Zane Lowe to act as a music director - which should add a fine edge to the whole show. Small wonder it is the one event that draws everyone from rival promoters with their kids in tow to celebrities, and workers to VVIPs.

For those who don't quite get their fill of beer and dancing at the gigs the Ibiza Rocks after-show is every Wednesday night at Es Paradis, with the usual melange of moonlighting rock stars, guests and residents behind the decks. All in all, it looks set to be another swinging success for the night that nobody thought would work.
