Ibiza Rocks 2013: Jake Bugg Headlines Opening

Jake Bugg at Ibiza Rocks on 5th June.

Ibiza Rocks have announced their headline performer for the 2013 Opening Party in the famed outdoor venue of the Ibiza Rocks Hotel. Jake Bugg has been one of the sensations of the music industry over the last year, with releases from his self-titled debut album - released in October - gaining critical and public acclaim. Releases such as 'Lightening Bolt' have shot the young 18 year old into the limelight as one of the most promising talents of the coming years. After supporting Ben Howard at Ibiza Rocks last year, Jake will top the bill for the opening on June 5th (4th June for Mallorca Rocks) with his unique blend of soulful and folk fuelled music.

Ibiza Rocks promises 2013 will build on the previous 7 seasons as they celebrate their 8th Birthday and welcome 16 weeks of quality live music to the island. Ibiza Rocks - every Wednesday from 5th June to 19th September.

“I'm really looking forward to playing Ibiza Rocks in 2013. I did it as support earlier this year with Ben Howard so it's great to be invited back to play a great outdoor headline set. It seems like every time people say guitar music is dead, that's when it comes back. I think people are hungry for it.” - Jake Bugg

“Jake played as a new artist last season when the buzz about him was just beginning and you could see that he was a very rare talent. We're excited and proud to bring him back as our opening headliner less than a year later. Given that Biffy Clyro, Plan B and Ed Sheeran have all headlined opening shows he's in pretty good company. What a way to kick off 16 amazing weeks under the Balearic stars. It feels like a really exciting time for live music and guitar music in particular again. Summer can't come soon enough.” - Shane Murray, Promoter.
