Ibiza Rocks is the No.1 youth destination in Ibiza and arguably the gateway to the isle for Generation Z. Having more than doubled it’s pool party programme for 2019, the season’s events are taking place poolside seven days a week during peak times. 2019’s summer line up, alongside the newly upgraded venue, will no doubt be a key summer visual embracing every essence of the daytime party revolution that Ibiza Rocks has ignited. Think sunny pool colours mixed with this year’s best and most varied artists, think #Daylife at Ibiza Rocks.  

Proving the pulling power of Ibiza Rocks, grime king Stormzy will return to the Pool Party venue for the world-exclusive #MERKY Festival in the same week he headlines the Pyramid stage at Glastonbury.

With Dave and Fredo also joining the line-up, #Merky Festival is a real-time representation of one of the most exciting times in music in the world right now. 

From UK grime to daytime disco with Chicago House legend Derrick Carter and fun-filled parties with La Discotheque, to the new female-focused Superfoxx fuelled by JD parties which feature Stefflon Don and Kelis, to the return of iconic DJ EZ, this lineup has more depth than ever before.  

Returning residencies from Craig David, Rudimental, MK, Cuckoo Land with Sonny Fodera and Lovely Laura & Ben Santiago promise to be their most impressive shows yet whilst debut resident Jax Jones will bring huge hits, special guests and guaranteed sunshine vibes with ‘Snacks.’  The home of the pool party will also welcome two other new residencies in the form of Bongos Bingo and the Hip Hop & R&B party starters Applebum.

Boasting the most diverse lineup of artists and events in its lifetime, the ever-evolving, multi-genre, multi-faceted Ibiza Rocks experience is more appealing than ever – with hotel sales up 46% year on year and 184k  event guests expected throughout the season. 

Jordan Hallpike, Director of Talent & Programming, Ibiza Rocks Group said: ‘Last summer was the first year we dedicated our programme exclusively to daytime pool parties, which resulted in our best performing year to date. We have fine-tuned every element of the experience, defined the best time slots, curated the line-ups and the customer experience to make Ibiza Rocks a fully functioning day club. Now, in 2019 with fantastic new venue refurbishments and our biggest line-up ever we are ready to establish the Ibiza Rocks venue as the best day club experience in the world!”
