Years & Years to headline Ibiza Rocks Opening Party 2015
Ibiza Rocks 2015 starts this Wednesday 17th of June. This summer “The home of live music in Ibiza” will celebrate ten incredible and hugely influential years on the White Isle with a line up that brings together festival giants, music icons and the very best of the new breed of rising stars.
Kicking off the sun-drenched summer is a band that is seriously hot property right now. BRIT nominees and crowning champions of the BBC Sound of 2015 Years & Years have sold out two headline dates at the acclaimed Shepherd’s Bush Empire and will make their Ibiza Rocks debut when they headline the coveted Opening Party gig on 17th June. Talking of the shows, Years & Years said: “Woop woop, we’re bringing the castanets back to the Balearics”.
Bristol duo Blonde, who already boast a No.7 hit single with ‘I Loved You’ will be the very first act of the summer to take to the stage, supporting Years & Years at the Opening Party.
MTV will be the exclusive broadcast partner for Ibiza Rocks for the third year running, premiering six 30-minute artist specials and an hour-long compilation show on its flagship channel, MTV MUSIC and MTV LIVE on 5th & 6th September. As with both years previously, London based Production Company JJ Stereo will produce all the content, which will be hosted by Laura Whitmore.
This summer sees Ibiza Rocks celebrate ten incredible and influential years on the White Isle with a 14 week-long series of spectacular outdoor shows that will bring together festival giants, music icons and the best of the new breed of rising stars. The pioneering brand has also expanded with the launch of its first major festival, Croatia Rocks, taking place on the Island of Pag in July (www.croatiarocks.com).
