Who says that Ibiza is quiet in winter? This Saturday 26 November sees the annual Cañas'n'Roll live music parties kick off in the bars in San José. Starting at 13 h and going on till late, you can enjoy live bands in many of the bars in the village and surrounding area whilst feasting on the cheap tapas deals on offer.

Cañas'n'Roll runs every weekend until Saturday 17 December and also on the fiesta days of 6 and 8 December Just €2.50 gets you a beer (caña) and snack or for a bigger bite, go for a tapas dish plus beer for €4. The final Saturday also includes a Kids'n'Roll event taking place in a marquee in the village from 12.30 h offering fun for kids of all ages.

If rock'n'roll is your thing there will be plenty to choose from plus lots of other great options such as jazz and, this being Ibiza, live DJs. People from around the island flock to hear their favourites including much loved local bands The Frigolos and Blues Mafia. You will see the streets heaving with people of all ages relishing the winter party vibe and moving from bar to bar to appreciate the different music and tapas offerings.

Participating bars in the village are Racó Verd, Can Xicu and Can Limo. Those in the wider area are Can Jordi, Can Pa, Zafiro, Stop, Ibosim and nestling in the pretty village of San Agustín, Bar Can Berri. As well as delivering tasty musical and edible treats they will also participate in the hotly fought mini-burger competition. Last year's winner Can Limo will be defending its title and can't afford to be complacent with Can Xicu's burgers being something of a local legend.

If you fancy a break from the music, you can always pop into Can Jeroni Cultural Centre to have a look at the photography exhibition entitled “You Rock” which is showing between 2 and 11 December. Full programme available for download here.

San José really comes to life for these events with crowds spilling out onto the streets and partying all weekend so if you want to enjoy a bustling atmosphere, great company, cool sounds and good value booze and tapas deals, get yourself to Ibiza for Cañas'n'Roll.

Get on down for some cool winter fun. You won't be disappointed.
