Ellie Goulding will head to the island festivals for the first time in August. The singer-songwriter who found fame with her debut album 'Lights' in 2010 has gone on to sell more than 3 million albums worldwide and will play Ibiza Rocks on August 20 and Mallorca Rocks on August 21.

Brighton pop-rappers Rizzle Kicks will play the second week of the festival, returning to the scene where they filmed the video for single ‘Dreamers’, at Ibiza Rocks House at Pikes last summer. The Rizzle Kickers said: “We can't wait to play Ibiza and Mallorca Rocks again. We've supported twice so being back to headline is going to huge. The sun is shining and everyone is in holiday mode. The gigs have a real party atmosphere with people dancing on their bedroom balconies all around the stage. It's a pretty unique experience...you really get up close to the fans and we cant wait to get back"

Dizzee Rascal is preparing his forthcoming fifth studio album and coincidentally also preparing to headline Ibiza Rocks and Mallorca Rocks for the fifth time this summer. It’s been almost 10 years since Dizzee Rascal came out with his Mercury Prize winning debut album 'Boy in da Corner' and the East London rapper will be on holiday with Ibiza Rocks on August 28 and Mallorca Rocks on August 27.

Indie-rock giants The Vaccines will headline Mallorca Rocks on June 18 and Ibiza Rocks on June 19, with support from Palma Violets.

The Vaccines' guitarist Freddie Cowan spoke exclusively to Virtual Festivals about returning to the island festivals to headline.

Foals have already been announced to play the Ibiza Rocks Closing Party on Wednesday 18th September, bringing an end to 16 weeks of the live gigs under the Balearic stars. The Oxford rockers will be supported by newly announced Sydney based duo Jagwar Mar. At the other end of the season Jake Bugg will play the opening party at both of the festivals, on 4th June (Mallorca) and 5th June (Ibiza). Example has also already been confirmed to play, with his full live show across both islands now joined by acclaimed DJ/Producer Redlight, who will also showcase his new live show at Ibiza Rocks.

We Are Rockstars, or W.A.R! as it's commonly known, was set up last year as an outdoor addition to the Ibiza and Mallorca Rocks gigs as a night featuring exclusive DJ sets from some of the biggest figures in electronic music. This year Katy B, So Solid Crew and TNGHT have already been announced for W.A.R! nights during the summer.

Summer 2013 will see the celebration of Ibiza Rocks 8th Birthday and Mallorca Rocks 3rd Birthday during the 16 week season of spectacular outdoor gigs.
