Renowned as the clubbing capital of the world, is Ibiza now entering a new era of riff-tinged melodies and up-front indie anthems ?

Kasabian – returning to Ibiza after an electric debut last summer – are set to blow it all up again this year, not once but twice as they appear on 16 & 17 July consecutively.

Glasgow’s finest, The Fratellis – fresh from being voted ‘Best British Breakthrough Act’ by Radio 1 listeners – also return for two hot dates on 3 & 4 September.

But the hottest band of the moment will be making what promises to be a scorching gig on 1 September, when the Arctic Monkeys bring their indisputable style to the shores of Ibiza.
