Celebrating 10 years, Ibiza Rocks recently announced another addition to its family with the first ever Croatia Rocks Festival which will take place July 19th – 23rd, 2015. A second wave of acts will join the already immense line-up for Croatia Rocks on the party isle of Pag. Platinum selling four-piece The Vaccines are yet another exciting live tour-de-force to join previously announced headliners Jungle and Clean Bandit, who picked up a Grammy this week for their number 1 smash ‘Rather Be’. 2015’s breakout band and BBC Sound Of winners Years & Years head to Croatia Rocks for what will undoubtedly be one of the highlights of the summer plus UK dance titans Gorgon City, electronic duo Bondax and more will join the DJ contingent on the formidable We Are Rockstars stage.
The Vaccines are arguably one of the biggest names in British music, selling over a million records after the release of their debut album in 2011 and collaborating with the likes of Arctic Monkeys, The Horrors and Albert Hammond Jr of The Strokes. With their fourth album ‘English Graffiti’ set for release later this year, 2015 is set to be the year of The Vaccines. Years & Years will be another must see live act at the inaugural Croatia Rocks – the BRIT nominees and crowning champions of the BBC Sound of 2015 are seriously hot property, having sold out two headline dates at the acclaimed Shepherd’s Bush Empire. Ethereal synth-pop songstress Lapsley rounds off the live additions who will all join previously announced acts Clean Bandit, Jungle, Kate Tempest, Kwabs, Shura and more.
Even more of electronic music’s finest will back up the W.A.R! stage’s almighty DJ roster that already features huge crowd favourites Rudimental, Zane Lowe, Fatboy Slim and more. Additions include Gorgon City who soundtracked summer 2014 with a slew of anthems as well as young electronic heavy hitters Bondax, house hero Alexis Raphael and Digital Soundboy’s Mella Dee, who’s fusion of jungle, bass and ragga has had dance floors going crazy up and down the country.
For the first time ever both the Ibiza Rocks and We Are Rockstars (W.A.R!) brands will play host to some of the finest live acts and breakthrough DJs away from their White Isle home of the Ibiza Rocks Hotel. The Ibiza Rocks stage will be the hub for live music, from the indie rock of The Vaccines to the kaleidoscopic modern soul of Jungle. W.A.R! is dedicated to championing only the most innovative superstar electronic acts alongside the best up-and-coming talent that the UK has to offer. Revelers are set to Eat.Sleep.Rave.Repeat with Fatboy Slim, party in pure Lxury and go Rudimental long into the night.
Spanning 5 days and nights, Croatia Rocks Festival will bring together the perfect mix of idyllic beach locations, daytime boat parties on crystal clear waters and the best artists this side of the Adriatic all in one place. With a wide variety of ticket and accommodation packages, everyone can dive straight into the perfect Croatia Rocks experience, whether in the privacy of their own villa or in a shared apartment. Furthermore Croatia Rocks is only a short two hour flight from the UK, bringing the party even closer.
