The world famous open-air Rocks stage will proudly welcome back three acts that have blown up since being championed by W.A.R! and booked on last years’ bill. An Ibiza live exclusive from 2015 festival favouritesGorgon City awaits whilst understated drum and bass duo turned bonafide chart superstars Sigma return and the undisputed Queen of bassline Hannah Wants will play two shows and bring W.A.R! to the ultimate climax at the Closing party on 18th September.
Exclusive shows will also come courtesy of Boy Better Know, David Rodigan MBE, Rinse FM and Thump. Foundation grime crew Boy Better Know, fronted by brothers Skepta & JME and favourited by Kanye West who handpicked them to perform with him at The BRITs will be supported by veteran grime/dubstep producer & DJPlastician in June.
It will be a seminal moment as the legendary David Rodigan MBE takes to the stage for the first time ever in Ibiza to present ‘Ram Jam’, with support from SHY FX, Toddla T and Ms Dynamite in September. David Rodigan MBE said: “Very excited to be bringing Ram Jam to the Island for the very first time with my good pals Shy FX & Toddla T in tow! Sunshine and reggae, the killer combination!”
For the third year running, the incredible and influential crew at Rinse FM takeover W.A.R! for a standout show featuring grime’s ultimate pioneer Skepta, genre-crushing DJ and tastemaker Oneman, BBC Sound of 2015 nominee Novelist and Black Butter Records’ hot property Sinead Harnett.
From new friends to old friends, W.A.R! will welcome back BBC 1Xtra’s Mista Jam and Redlight plus Example & DJ Wire with their special ’10 Years of Ibiza’ set. Pioneering garage selector DJ EZ heads up an enviable bill as part of the Thump takeover in June and will be joined on the line up by a selection of the best of the new breed including bassline hit-maker Chris Lorenzo – responsible for co-producing Hannah Wants’ top 10 single ‘Rhymes’ – as well as garage-grime starlet Preditah and younger brother C4. Other hot new sets will come courtesy of breakthrough MC Stormzy plus Mella Dee, My Nu Leng and Fono who boasts a mini residency this year with four shows. A thoroughly impressive line up that’s testament to the fluid mix of styles and sounds that W.A.R! will represent in 2015.
