Tinie Tempah, fresh from announcing his new UK tour is also going to be rocking Ibiza and Majorca this summer.
Example, Plan B; Labrinth and Katy B will also be heading out to the Balearics this summer to play during 17 weeks of concerts on the islands.
Plan B is the first act to play Mallorca Rocks (Tues 31 May) and Ibiza Rocks (Wed 01 June) back to back and a whole host of other top names have been added to the bill of Europe’s hottest, 17 week long summer series of unmissable live gigs.
Since supporting Chase and Status at Ibiza Rocks last year, Tinie Tempah has broken records and boundaries in British music with hit single ‘Pass Out’ being the smash hit of 2010 and securing him the British Single and British Breakthrough at the recent BRIT Awards.
‘Rocks’ welcomes back Example, supported by superstar producer Sub Focus who collaborated with phenomenal success on huge dance floor filler ‘Kickstarts’ in 2010 and will join forces again in the Balearics this summer. Another ‘Example’ of a breakthrough artist that Ibiza Rocks bet on is back in a headline slot. Example will also be performing material from his new album due out in the summer who he has worked on with Skream, Nero and Chase & Status.
Example said: “I first experienced Ibiza Rocks as a punter many years ago before I was doing my own gigs when Faithless were headlining and The Kooks were an unknown support. Two years ago I had the pleasure of supporting Dizzee at Ibiza Rocks. Last year it was Calvin Harris. Now this year I'm headlining Ibiza and Mallorca Rocks it's going to be overwhelming. The atmosphere is like nothing else I've experienced anywhere else in the world”
Plan B said: “This is going to be fun. I've never been to Ibiza before. I better start working out what I'm going to wear now, it's going to be hard to make speedo's work with my suit jacket.”
