It has been three years since the Ibiza Rocks brand was introduced to the Balearics.

Guitar bands like Arctic Monkeys, The View and Babyshambles have provided holiday makers with a musical break from the long established clubbing scene.

The Enemy also played the event, held at Bar M in San Antonio, last year.

Singer Tom Clarke claims it was one of their best ever gigs.

He said: "It was class, one of the highlights of my year. It was mint.

"We're gonna go out there and get steaming and have a good time."

Clarke admits he wasn't sure how their brand of rock would go down with crowds of clubbers.

He said: "I always wanted to go in '99 when the whole dance thing was kicking off.

"I did wonder, 'cause it's a massive dance scene, and we didn't know how indie would go down.

"Having done the gig, it was one of the best receptions we've ever had."

The Ibiza Rocks Hotel will include three outdoor pools and five bars plus rehearsal rooms for the bands.
