Spring is in the air and the sound of summer is just around the corner as Rocks cranks up the heat and turns up the volume on the annual 16 week series of live outdoor gigs. Adding to the huge summer line up is Lily Allen making her Mallorca and Ibiza Rocks debut , with yet more still to come.

Lily Allen is undeniably one of Britains most provocative pop stars and as widely reported, it was one fateful summer in Ibiza that put Lily Allen on her path to superstardom. At just 15, Lily lied to her parents to stay on in Ibiza after a family holiday, got herself a job, admittedly went wild and met her first manager George Lamb along the way.

A record deal followed and critically acclaimed debut album Alright Still (2006) sold 2.6 million copies and spawned huge infectious hits like Smile and LDN. This success put Lily on the map as well as on the Pyramid stage at Glastonbury. Second album It’s Not Me It’s You chalked up the same impressive sales and now Lily Allen is back as brilliantly bold as ever with her third album Sheezus (released 5th May).

Despite her huge affiliation with Ibiza, Lily Allen has never performed on the White Isle. This will be a seminal moment of the summer for Lily Allen and for the crowd who get to see a hugely anticipated headline show by one the UK’s most compelling stars, in the intimate courtyard stage setting of the Rocks Hotels.

Lily Allen said: ‘I’m really looking forward to performing at Mallorca Rocks and Ibiza Rocks in June. Ibiza was my home for a summer when I was a teenager, and I’ve always loved going there. I’m certain that these two shows will be a highlight in my summer schedule.’

The Ibiza Rocks brand consistently boasts a bill crammed with the biggest international artists, best breakthrough talent and cutting edge DJs. Summer 2014 will see the celebration of Ibiza Rocks 9th Birthday and Mallorca Rocks 4th Birthday during the 16 weeklong season of spectacular outdoor gigs under the stars. More Rocks headline acts and W.A.R! line up announcements will follow soon.

MTV will be the exclusive broadcast partner for the second year running. The network will broadcast a number of live performances, exclusive artist interviews and all the highlights from the 16 weeklong series from the Ibiza Rocks and Mallorca Rocks Hotels this summer. Seven shows will be broadcast in total on MTV Live HD and the network’s flagship channel MTV Music including 5 x 30′ shows from Ibiza Rocks and a 1 x 30′ show from Mallorca Rocks as well as a 1 x 60′ (multi-artist) compilation show incorporating live track selection and exclusive interviews.
