Ibiza is the spirtual home of all types of electronic music, from house to techno and every sub-genre in-between. But since 2005, Ibiza Rocks has been serving up a different type of sound, holding weekly parties with live music from rock and indie bands in the courtyard next to the pool in their San Antonio hotel. Understanding that rock kids want to dance and that club kids like to rock, Ibiza Rocks has grown to become one of the island's biggest success stories over the past couple of years.
This summer, Ibiza Rocks won't be the only destination for live music on the island. 'I want my MTV Ibiza' launches on July 1st at Amnesia and continues every Friday until September 2nd. Shaking up what you might expect from an Ibiza party, Snoop Dogg will perform on opening night – his first ever gig in Ibiza. Later in the season, the club will host acts as diverse as Duran Duran, Robyn, Richie Hawtin presents Plastikman and Mark Ronson.
Could the live music bug catch on and become an even bigger part of the island's music scene? Let us know what you think.
