Ibiza Rocks is the first venue in Ibiza to announce its headline acts for the summer, having already said it will open for guests from June 24.

The Poolside Sessions take place throughout the summer, with a line up that includes debut residencies from BRIT-award nominated DJ/producers Joel Corry and Nathan Dawe, legendary club brand Garage Nation, Hip Hop party starters Applebum, house music aficionados Cuckoo Land and rising star Jess Bays.

It is hoped that the Balearic islands will be added to the UK travel green list in June.

Transport Secretary Grant Shapps recently said that certain Spanish islands may well make it on to the list, which would mean Brits could visit without having to quarantine on their return.

But we'll have to wait until the next review early next month to find out for certain.

Those who want to take a punt on a break in Ibiza this summer can find great deals at Ibiza Rocks hotels:

  • Jet2 Ibiza Rocks holidays from £323pp 
  • Booking.com Ibiza Rocks holidays from £264 per stay


Currently Spain is on the UK's amber list – meaning anyone jetting off for a break must quarantine and take two tests on their return.

However the Balearic islands tourism director recently stated that holidays to the islands will be "normal by the end of summer".

Rosana Morillo, the director general of tourism in the Balearic Islands, told the BBC's Today Programme: "We've been strict with restrictions as we believe it is the best way to control the pandemic.

"Now, little by little, we are lifting them, with increasing vaccinations allowing us to do this.

"I believe holidays during this summer, especially late summer, will be similar to ones we are used to in the past few years."

Earlier this month, Spain ended their six month lockdown, with the vast majority of restrictions eased, leading to celebrations on the streets.

The islands have been pushing to open ahead of the rest of Spain due to low Covid cases – Majorca has an infection rate of just 42.74 per 100,000, while Ibiza’s is 25.69 according to the European Centre for Disease Prevention and Control (ECDC).

Iago Negueruela, Minister of Tourism for the Balearic Islands, said he was "encouraged" that Brits will be able to return soon, adding: "As we continue to ease restrictions and roll out the vaccine, we are looking to restart international tourism in the Balearic Islands, based on the highest standards of safety.

"A huge effort is taking place behind the scenes to start once again receiving tourists."
