Smash hits by Children of the 80s guest stars

Look out for this weekly retro extravaganza.

We're talking neon colours, outrageous shoulder pads and many a mullet - it's Children of the 80s of course. Taking us on a journey back through iconic decades gone by, this party is a celebration of all our favourite one-hit wonders and guilty pleasures.

Hard Rock Hotel Ibiza becomes our virtual time machine every Friday night and welcomes in some hot names on the line-ups.

We have rounded up all the acts still to come this season reminding you of their top hits. Check this out.


19 July, 23 August, 20 September | Barbara Tucker

Ibiza welcomes house and soul singer-songwriter Barbara Tucker to join in on our retro extravaganza. With a backlog of chart success and high-profile collaborations, she has certainly made her mark on the dance scene of the late 1990's and early 2000's. At this party you can expect to have the sing-a-long of your life with classic soul house tunes such as Everybody Dance and Beautiful People.


26 July | Queen of the Night (Whitney Houston Tribute)

I defy anyone to hear the soulful tunes of Whitney Houston and not jump up and dance. Relive all of her best tracks through the Queen of the Night tribute act and unleash your inner diva. Trying to pick just one Whitney Houston tune is not easy but I Wanna Dance with Somebody is always a crowd-pleaser.


2 August | N-Trance

British electro-pop duo N-Trance promises a party bursting with old school dance mixes. Their best-known track, Set Your Free, brought the pair global success with the help of Kelly Llorrena on vocals. Over the years they have defined their individual sound through popular releases such as D.I.S.C.O, Turn up the Power and more. Have a listen and take a trip down memory lane.


9 August | Katrina

Katrina - of Katrina and The Waves - will be bringing the classic melodic tunes that made the band a household name back in the 1980's to Ibiza. If there were ever a song that defined the up-beat, feel-good retro vibes of Children of the 80s, it would have to be Walking on Sunshine. I can't imagine Katrina would let us leave the party without hearing this pop anthem.


16 August | I Want U Back (Michael Jackson Tribute)

It wouldn't be a true '80s party without a little Michael Jackson now, would it? Perfect your moonwalk and get ready to boogie through the decades of the king of pop. The I Want U Back tribute act will be performing classics such as Thriller, Smooth Criminal, Billie Jean and more, all night long. We can't wait.


30 August | Tina Cousins

Tina Cousins invites us into a dance eutopia with her classic vocal trance and dance-pop style. Her emotive voice took tracks such as Pray, Killin' Time and Forever to global chart success. And of course, who could forget Mysterious Times, a collaboration between her and Euro-house producer, Sash! We have no doubt that Tina Cousins will bring an electric atmosphere to the Hard Rock Hotel stage.


6 September | U Rock (cover band)

If you were more of a rocker than a raver back in the day, this is the night for you. Covering some of the most legendary rock anthems to come out of the 1980s and more, we expect to hear the likes of Guns N Roses, Pink Floyd and Queen. Can you name the 80's anthem the U Rock guys are covering in the video below?


13 September | Double You

Revel in the old school sounds of 1990s Eurodance with Italian group Double You. If you missed them on their crazy worldwide tours back in the day then now is your chance to see them live here on Ibiza. We are sure that you'll remember their popular feel-good tune Please Don't Go, a cover of KC and the Sunshine Band.


27 September | Snap!

For the final date of the 2019, Snap! bring you their unique style of Eurodance which blew up the charts back in the late 1980s and early 1990s. With their best-loved tracks such as The Power and Rhythm is a Dancer still being played in clubs across the world today, this party is going to be BIG.


As you can tell, Hard Rock Hotel Ibiza is the place to be on Friday nights to hear the hottest throwbacks.

If any of these names jump out to you then throw on your dancing shoes and make sure to head down to one of the island's most fun and vibrant parties.
