Ibiza Rocks got off to a shaky start back in 2005, and there were a lot of doubters who thought that live music, especially indie music, wouldn't succeed on an island built on decades of clubbing

Playboy have joined forces with Ibiza Rocks to hold a series of special concerts throughout July and August under the company’s Rock the Rabbit brand, with a performance from Soulwax at the Ibiza Rocks Hotel on 29th June having already received rave reviews, and a gig from fop-rockers The Kooks coming up on 10th August. Other Ibiza Rocks highlights include the brand’s 5th Birthday party concert with The Prodigy on 20th July, and Bloc Party’s Kele playing on 31st of August, with indie dance men of the moment Delphic supporting. With acts of that calibre, it’s not what you’d typically expect from Balearic Island holidays.
“Ibiza Rocks got off to a shaky start back in 2005, and there were a lot of doubters who thought that live music, especially indie music, wouldn’t succeed on an island built on decades of clubbing,” says Richard Bray of popular travel portal Travelmatch. “But five years on, it can be considered one of the greatest success stories in Ibiza’s recent memory. Playboy’s affiliation with Ibiza Rocks just goes to show how it’s going from strength to strength.”
The partnership will also see a bevy of Playboy bunnies wandering around the Ibiza Rocks hotel, and a Playboy fashion shoot with some of the bands to appear in a future issue of the magazine. Playboy’s Rock the Rabbit program was launched in 2007, and previous acts to have performed at Rock the Rabbit gigs include Duran Duran, MGMT, The Flaming Lips, Mötley Crüe, The Killers Lil’ Jon and Snoop Dogg.
Travelmatch currently offers a range of package holidays to the Ibiza from leading travel operator Thomson holidays, with prices starting as low as £213 per person. Tickets to Ibiza Rocks concerts cost £22.50 plus booking fee, and are available from their website or on the door.
“If you’re looking to hit up Ibiza Rocks this summer, Travelmatch can help you find the holiday of your dreams,” continues Bray. “Our range of all inclusive holidays caters to every possible budget.”
