Back in 2005 the people behind Ibiza Rocks had a brainwave… They were going to bring live music to the White Isle.
Bored of the commercial direction the dance scene had gone in, they wanted something better than the superclubs and superstar DJs. They decided to turn that world on it’s head and invited the very opposite of Ibiza clubland – Pete Doherty & Babyshambles – to play a beach party, joined by indie rock prince Zane Lowe to DJ. it worked. Just about. But it worked. The fire was lit and it was swiftly followed by a show with Kaiser Chiefs who were riding high with I Predict A Riot. People said it definitely wouldn’t work but it did. That Kaiser Chiefs show sold out three days in advance, something that was unheard of on the island, nothing ever sold out in advance.
I had been thinking for a while that I wanted to change my phone but I was still under contract , I can’t tell you how delighted I was to win the phone it could have come at a better time thanks
