Following much anticipation, Friday 13 June saw the Grand Opening event of Hard Rock Hotel Ibiza as it launched its first season in the White Isle with an electrifying disco performance by Chic featuring co-founder and legendary guitarist Nile Rodgers, New York house group Masters at Work, and Spanish DJ and producer Brian Cross.

With more than 4000 guests from around the globe, Hard Rock Hotel Ibiza firmly established itself as a leading outdoor music venue with a premium musical line-up, supported by world class pyrotechnics and visual performance creating an explosive party atmosphere.

At 8.30pm, Hard Rock Hotel Ibiza was officially opened with Hard Rock’s emblematic “Guitar Smash”, a tradition that has marked the opening of all Hard Rock hotels and casinos around the world. Welcoming familiar faces from the Hard Rock family as well as Abel Matutes Prats, CEO of Palladium Hotel Group, Hard Rock’s partner in Ibiza, and Yann Pissenem, artistic director of Hard Rock Hotel Ibiza, the “Guitar Smash” paid homage to the authentic rock rebels and paved the way for the evening’s musical line-up.

DJs Little Louie Vega and Kenny Dope Gonzalez, otherwise known as Masters At Work, kicked off the evening with a phenomenal session which got everyone on their feet before hotly anticipated Chic featuring Nile Rodgers took to the stage with an exhilarating set which sent disco vibes around the White Isle with track after track of golden classic hits. For the final song, Rodgers invited his friends on stage and enlisted none other than Sister Sledge and the original Chic vocalists to join in with ‘Good Times’ which sent the crowds wild and marked the perfect finale for Rodgers’ Hard Rock Hotel Ibiza debut.

The musical variety of the Hard Rock Hotel Ibiza grand opening party demonstrates the musical diversity that guests can expect this summer with confirmed artists including Neneh Cherry, Ub40, Robin Thicke, Icona Pop, Jason Derülo, Ellie Goulding, Snoop Dogg and Placebo amongst many more.
