The Libertines Announced As Ibiza Rocks Headliners
17 February 2015, 14:38
The Libertines will top the bill for the 10th year of Ibiza Rocks, with Courteeners and Jungle also set to perform the sun-kissed series of gigs.
Ibiza Rocks has become one of the most popular summer festivals since its foundation ten years ago and they've signed up a huge line-up to play in 2015.
With both Babyshambles and Dirty Pretty Things having played there in the past, The Libertines already have a connection with the Balearic event and have been confirmed as the top act for the 10th Birthday Party.
Carl Barat said: "Ibiza Rocks is one of the greatest gigs there is. The strange and debauched energy of the place never fails to provide the perfect backdrop for bacchanalian reverie of the highest order.
"Everyone there is gonna be 'mad for it', I can't wait. One of those nights actually worth the b***ard hangover. Bring it."
The Libertines show will take place on 22 July, but there are loads of other top acts performing too.
Hotly tipped new act Years and Years will play the Opening Party on 17 June, with Jungle playing on 1 July. Clean Bandit play on 5 August and Ibiza favourite Fatboy Slim will perform on 2 September.
Courteeners have also been confirmed for a huge show at the end of the 14-week series of outdoor shows, as they play the closing party on 16 September.
Shane Murray, one of the festival's organisers, spoke to Sunta Templeton about his favourite memories of the festival.
