In my opinion, the grand opening party of the Hard Rock Hotel Ibiza (their first European location) missed a trick in not asking Eurovision winners Lordi to perform their winning song ‘Hard Rock Hallelujah’. However, they certainly didn’t disappoint on June 13th with their actual party performers, Chic featuring Nile Rogers.
Now they’re open, the hotel are keen to keep the party going and have announced a series of top acts (and Robin Thicke) who’ll be performing at the venue, on the beautiful playa d’en Bossa beach, over the summer.
Here’s what the line-up is currently looking like:
UB40 (June 27th)
I saw Icona Pop before I Love It became the hit of last summer and they were amazing – the perfect act to see in the sunset. It’s their enthusiastic energy onstage that really makes the pair a must-see (you don’t notice the songs for the crazy dancing the audience goes mad for). I’m most excited for Kylie Minogue, who is simply peerless for bringing disco into the present – and if we happened to meet each other in the front row at Placebo, we could totally mime along to Special K together… along with 2,500 people!
Luckily if the throng of people simply get too much, you can head to one of the hotel’s many chill-out areas or take a dip in the pool. Sounds like bliss… Where’s my plane ticket?
