Idris Elba residency at Ibiza Rocks House at Pikes

Ibiza Rocks House at Pikes has quickly become THE playground for the new wave of rock and roll elite hitting up the White Isle.  The 25-room boutique haven is home to the bands playing Ibiza Rocks each week and the House party action will get seriously cool this summer as Idris Elba presents 7 Wallace Featuring Driis and Special Guests.

Having completed a sold out 7-week residency at Kilburn club Love and Liquor, with friends such as Seth Troxler and Pete Tong showing up to play impromptu sets, DRIIS is ready to do it all again.  This time, London’s coolest house party is Balearic bound and as the sun goes down, DRIIS will turn up the heat at the House.  The Hackney-born, Hollywood ‘A’ lister is going back to his roots and to his first love, music.  For 7 weeks, every Friday from 12th July – 23rd August, Idris Elba will take the reigns and get behind the decks for a special summer residency at Ibiza Rocks House at Pikes. 

The hotels exclusive ‘Freddie’s’ suite, famous for hosting Freddie Mercury’s 41st birthday bash, is devilishly decadent and at the heart of Ibiza after-dark activity for those in the know.  It’s here that Idris Elba will set up home and do his ‘7 Wallace’ thing – 7 Fridays, 7 weeks with 7 guest DJ’s, Driis will bring together his love of throwing a great party and bring friends and unannounced names to spin and party alongside him. Expect the unexpected. Anything can happen.

He may be best known for his Golden Globe-winning turn in Luther or as Stringer Bell in The Wire, and he’s playing the title part in the biopic Mandela: Long Walk To Freedom, but music is in this man’s heart and seeps through his soul.  Idris Elba is a seasoned recording artist, professional DJ of nearly three decades and a muse and collaborator to everyone from Mumford & Sons to Jay-Z and Usher.

Idris Elba said: “The 7 Wallace parties are intimate and understated. There’s no huge club, just a really cool house party vibe. Ibiza Rocks House is perfect- unique, charming, full of character and seeped in music history. I’ve never experienced anywhere like it. It’s a hidden gem in the hills, a place where magical moments just happen naturally and interesting people are drawn in.  There’s a real fusion between the place, the people and the feeling you get there. Get ready for the ultimate House parties this summer.”

Ibiza Rocks House at Pikes has an even mix of rock stars and guests staying over this season, providing an intimate and unique experience. Ibiza Rocks brings this boutique sanctuary to a new audience seeking a private, prestigious experience from their time on the island. The incredible legacy of Pikes has been fused with the ‘now’ of Ibiza Rocks. The sprawling hotel is situated in the hills and filled with personal touches - antique mirrors and iconic music photography frame rooms seeping with rock and roll heritage whilst playrooms and intimate nooks meet guests at every turn as the heavy breath of hedonism fills the air. The infamous pool that was the location for Wham’s ‘Club Tropicana’ video still remains pride of place.

DRIIS has also been added to the W.A.R! line-up, alongside Example + DJ Wire on July (12,19,26) August (23) and as part of the Rinse FM takeover with Katy B, P Money and Zinc. (09/08).  For tickets go to
