Two of the biggest breakthrough acts of the year are to kick of the summer of 2014 under the Balearic stars.
While Christmas has yet to pass thoughts of summer are already underway at the Ibiza Rocks HQ as organisers announce the line up for the hugely coveted opening party slot in 2014. Launch band is the hottest new group in the world right now, HAIM, whilst week two will welcome the biggest British breakthrough band of the year, The 1975. Two weeks, two debut Balearic shows from two No.1 international artists.
Hailing from the San Fernando Valley, California, HAIM follow in the footsteps of huge international artists Biffy Clyro, Ed Sheeran and Jake Bugg by headlining the Rocks opening parties and kicking off summer 2014 off in super hot style. HAIM’s debut album Days Are Gone received critical adoration, monster sales and a UK No.1 and they just claimed a career milestone with a stunning performance on Saturday Night Live, further propelling the sisters to global superstardom as they embark on their own world tour. Rocks will proudly bring HAIM to Mallorca Rocks on the 3rd of June and Ibiza Rocks on the 4th of June next year for their debut live shows in the Balearic Islands.
Week two will see another breakthrough band take to the famous poolside Rocks stage. The 1975’s (self-titled) platinum debut topped the UK album charts and cemented their status as the home-grown success story of the year. With a run of sold out headline shows including three consecutive gigs at Brixton Academy and a special show just announced at London’s prestigious Royal Albert Hall, the Manchester indie-pop quartet are in huge demand.
The 1975 will headline Mallorca Rocks on the 10th of June and Ibiza Rocks on the 11th of June, bringing with them their infectious set list of hits including Chocolate, The City and Sex.
What a way to kick off next summer poolside at Ibiza and Mallorca Rocks. It’s a real coup to confirm Haim and The 1975 so early. They are two of the biggest breakthrough acts of the year and se the bar pretty high for the rest of the 16-week season. On top of this we’re about to launch Ibiza Rocks the Snow in Meribel next week so all in all it’s a really exciting time for the brand. – Shane Murray, Promoter
