Pleasure Island ... Ibiza

A unique insight behind the scenes at Ibiza Rocks.

Pleasure Island is the impressive new photobook by Jocelyn Bain Hogg (The Firm, Idols + Believers), which documents the people and performers, the music and madness, of the Ibiza Rocks summer festival.

Ibiza has long been the favoured destination for pleasure seekers since the Romans selected it as their hedonistic hotspot, and it’s the summer home from home for ravers, hippies, beer boys, clubbers and celebrities alike.

‘These photos tell the story of two tribes meeting up and mutually entertaining each other. Good fun was had by all and Jocelyn was there to capture it.’

When The Stones and Bowie arrived in the early seventies, the dirty, sexy world of rock ’n’ roll fell in love with the White Isle, and it’s been coming back for more ever since.

Now Ibiza Rocks (established in 2005) is bringing the new generation of rock stars to the island – bands like the Kaiser Chiefs, Arctic Monkeys, Reverend And The Makers and The Klaxons – and the party has got even bigger and better.

‘I was a sceptic before Ibiza Rocks, but it has been great to help bring different types of music out there and watch it hang with the big club experience: it’s on the island and it’s in this book.’

Zane Lowe

Pleasure Island is the definitive photographic guide to Ibiza and twenty-first century partying, and Bain Hogg’s photos brilliantly both consider and celebrate the nature of modern pleasure.

Pleasure Island can be purchased for €25 and can be found at The Ibiza Rocks Hotel shop.
