Pete Tong announces new festival, ‘Rocktronic’ Ibiza123, for July
While it seems like the last thing the world needs is another music festival, Pete Tong has gone ahead and announced that he will be bringing a festival to the real EDM capital of the world: Ibiza. The festival will be held annually July 1-3 (hence the 123 in the name) and will pair electronic artists with rock stars. The three days will include Sting with the Basement Jaxx, Elton John with Pnau, and Lenny Kravitz with Luciano, though other announced talent includes Axwell, David Guetta, Tiesto, Tinie Tempah, and Labrinth.
As we saw with “Superlove” we know that Lenny Kravitz has the ability to jive with EDM, and it will be interesting to see how the rest of the weekend pans out. Live performances are actually incredibly refreshing as we saw with Shermanology at EDC NY, so here’s to hoping that Pete is once again setting a trend. There is no news yet on tickets or pricing, but we’ll let you know when there’s more.
