Hard Rock International–you know, of the famous Cafes, beacons of burgers and music memorabilia in cities all over the world–is opening its first hotel in Europe on Ibiza’s Playa d’en Bossa and celebrating all summer with a blow-out series of Friday concerts. Think of it as a three-month musical festival, only instead of Glastonbury’s mud and tents, you’re billeted in the plush beachside Hard Rock Hotel Ibiza and partying by the pool. And no field festival can compete with this lineup.
First R&B crooner Robin Thicke will be oozing charm on July 4th. Thicke blurs the lines (eh) between suave and sleazy, and if he’s not to your taste, girl power DJ duo Icona Pop and electro fairy Ellie Goulding hit the stage the following weeks. The summer’s roster veers between mellow, herbal-scented rap and excitable diva pop (Snoop Dogg and Kylie Minogue headline a week apart) and crescendos to a nostalgic blast of goth brattiness with a September 12th concert by Placebo.
And it’s not just the nightlife you’re going for. The hotel features a Rock Spa, pools, bars and restaurants, allowing you to have a well earned rest after partying hard to the top international acts Hard Rock have attracted to their venue. You can even feel like a rock star yourself by making your own personal soundtrack or even taking up guitar lessons as part of Hard Rock’s Sound of your Stay programme. Look the part too by picking up rocking gear in the hotel shop. While this is very much a holiday for you, it doesn’t mean you have to leave the kids behind – Hard Rock’s Roxity Kids Club will keep them entertained while you get a chance to rock and relax!
