If there’s one open air contemporary festival that has that famous Californian flower power vibe it’s got to be Coachella
New Order, Ibiza Rocks
Rounding off a sizzling hot summer of electronic and rock on Ibiza, New Order headline Ibiza Rocks on September 12. This follows blisterring sets by the likes of Kaiser Chiefs and Kasabian at Ibiza Rocks Hotel at the very heart of the White Island’s legendary nightlife. It was just after the Second Summer of Love in 1989 that New Order chose the island to record their fifth album Technique on Ibiza, incorporating Balearic Beat and acid house influences into their own sound. It was the likes of New Order that brought the Ibiza scene to mass notice and in 2012 they will be performing in the space that has become the symbol of the “new Ibiza”, where the audience can even watch the gig from their hotel rooms. Supporting them will be fellow Mancunians The Whip, whose tracks have been included on the Kitsune Maison Compilations 3 and 4. But that’s not all: don’t miss the after party at Es Paradis, and maybe some of the night’s performers saying a fond farewell to summer too.
