Ben Howard


"Without a doubt, Ibiza is one of my favourite places on the planet. I've been to the island every year of my life and genuinely stoked to get there for a big show. My Grandad opened one of the first bars on the old port so that's my little claim to fame over there. Great to be part of the whole Ibiza Rocks vibe, Ibiza's always had a big gap when it comes to bands with guitars so great to be included really. I can't wait." Ben Howard

This summer, Ibiza Rocks will proudly present Britain’s biggest rising star Ben Howard at Ibiza Rocks, Wednesday 4th July. He joins an already stellar line up including Ed Sheeran, Kasabian, New Order, Bloc Party, Tinie Tempah, Example, Kaiser Chiefs, Chase & Status, Paolo Nutini, Professor Green, Maverick Sabre, Labrinth, DJ Fresh presents FRESH/LIVE, Azealia Banks and Two Door Cinema Club who will also play the 16-week long series of outdoor summer gigs.

2011 was, in Ben’s own, understated words, “quite hectic”. In the space of just twelve short months, Ben inked his record deal, recorded and released his beautiful debut album, Every Kingdom, and soon found his record propelling him into the UK Top 10. Every Kingdom has been such a success it will be released in the US in April, an album that was recorded in a
converted barn out in the Devonshire Countryside where Ben and his band currently live.

Growing up in Devon, and spending every summer at the family’s home in Ibiza, Ben surrounded himself with the richly textured music in his parents' record collection. “Van Morrison, John Martyn, Nick Drake, Richie Havens, Joni Mitchell, Simon and Garfunkel,” he says. “That’s what we’d listen to in the house and in the car wherever we were going.” It was these records that encouraged him to pick up a guitar, re-stringing his mum’s Spanish nylon acoustic as a young lad.

Ben has enjoyed a rapid rise to fame and his success continues to soar with sold out shows across the globe and a string of Festival dates this summer including Bonnaroo, Radio 1 Hackney Weekend, Latitude, T in the Park, V and Bestival. Fans at Ibiza Rocks, however, can enjoy Ben’s stunning live show in a more intimate sun kissed setting as he takes to the famous open air stage at the Ibiza Rocks Hotel on Wednesday 4th July.

The Ibiza Rocks brand consistently boasts a bill crammed with the biggest international artists and breakthrough talent live under the Balearic stars and offers a choice of quality  ccommodation options in Mallorca and Ibiza at exceptional value.

Summer 2012 will see 32 ‘Rocks’ gigs across 16 consecutive weeks. Mallorca Rocks every Tuesday from 05 June – 18 September. Ibiza Rocks every Wednesday from 06 June to 19 September.
