The Specials - 14 Sep 2010 - Ibiza Rocks Hotel, San Antonio

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.

True musical pioneers they received the ‘Inspiration Award’ at Q Awards in 2009 and then the coveted ‘Outstanding Contribution to Music’ award at NME Awards earlier this year, as well as wowing fresh audiences at Glastonbury, Bestival and Spain’s Benecassim over the past 3 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.

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.
