After a summer long celebration of some of the finest artists, bands and DJ’s on the planet, Ibiza Rocks caps off in style with music legends, The Specials, headlining the much anticipated Closing Party at Ibiza Rocks Hotel on 14 September.

Having received the ‘Inspiration Award’ at Q Awards in 2009 and then the coveted ‘Outstanding Contribution to Music’ award at NME Awards earlier this year, The Specials have also wowed fresh crowds with standout sets at Glastonbury, Bestival and Benicassim over the past few summers.  Now is the time to treat the hungry, youthful and cosmopolitan crowd on the White Isle to their formidable Punk attitude and energy as they bring Ibiza Rocks 2010 to an unforgettable close.

Formed in 1977, this Coventry-bred band achieved seven consecutive UK Top 10 singles including their famous smash hit ‘Ghost Town’. Their unmistakable fusion of danceable ska and rocksteady beats have since influenced a plethora of young chart-topers from Lily Allen to Jamle T, cementing them as true music legends amongst the young Ibiza Rocks generation.

Ibiza Rocks has fast become the No.1 European Festival destination for UK holidaymakers, offering a sizzling line-up of the best breaking bands and festival headliners. The Specials are the third true musical pioneers of the summer, after Ian Brown and Prodigy who debuted earlier this season.

After four scorching hot summer months of incredible, unrivalled and groundbreaking live shows, what better way to build on the Ibiza Rocks legacy and see out 2010 than with The Specials, live and loud under the Balearic stars, to a hungry cosmopolitan audience, in Ibiza’s No.1 gig venue – Ibiza Rocks.

Shane Murray, Ibiza Rocks Promoter said: ‘This has been the best season yet for us with Ibiza Rocks celebrating 5 years and the huge success of the Mallorca Rocks Hotel launch.  We’re constantly redefining what our live events can be and we’re amazed and delighted that The Specials are coming to play our closing party.  Our line up this summer is so strong and really feels like a summer long festival – from legends like The Prodigy to Ian Brown, DJ’s Annie Mac and Zane Lowe, new stars like Tinie Tempah and The Drums to superstars such as Florence and the Machine and Dizzee Rascal.  Big plans ahead for next year too.  Here’s to a brilliant climax to 2010!’

The Ibiza Rocks Closing Party, on 14 September at the Ibiza Rocks Hotel is going to be very SPECIAL.
