A trio of rising stars set to shine at Ibiza rocks and Mallorca Rocks

The Rocks summer season is in full flow and organisers have pulled in some more music gems to add to their biggest bill to date.  As well as hosting the most in-demand festival headliners, Rocks consistently champions and proudly presents new talent and three of the best breaking acts on the scene, Alex Clare, Alt-J and Pepper have been added to the 16 week-long, sun-drenched series of summer gigs.

Supporting Paolo Nutini is London based singer/songwriter Alex Clare.  Counting Adele amongst his biggest fans, Clare received his big break when track Too Close was used by Microsoft in a worldwide ad campaign, rocketing him from obscurity to the top of the charts. Clare’s album The Lateness of the Hour saw him work with world famous dub step producers Diplo & Switch to create standout tracks with heavy basslines and all the anthemic qualities perfect for the ultimate set under the stars at Mallorca and Ibiza Rocks this summer.

Alt-J also joins this year’s lineup, supporting Bloc Party in September. Alt-J comes to Rocks basking in the glory of a hugely successful UK and Irish tour and critically acclaimed debut album An Awesome Wave.  Describing themselves as ‘folk-step’ their upbeat tracks are certain to provide a hit with Rocks crowd.

Finally, supporting Plan B is Mancunian singer songwriter Pepper.  Having forged a song writing partnership with one of the most respected and formidable figures in British dance music, Nicholas ‘Cage’ Denton (Dizzee Rascal’s manager and mentor), the pair have penned stunning standout tracks.  Pepper has embarked on the European festival circuit this summer as an integral part of the Dizzee Rascal roadshow and will showcase her work in her own right at Rocks. and
