    The Kaiser Chiefs and Hard-Fi are the latest additions to the Ibiza Rocks festival, joining a distinctly non-clubby lineup by the summer party mecca's standards. Among the other bands playing the ongoing festival are

    The Streets,
    The View and Arctic Monkeys.

    Promoter Andy McKay said about the festival, "When we launched, many people laughed at the idea of bringing live bands to Ibiza and it was very hard to book the bands. The bands we booked a couple of years ago as relative unknowns are now returning to headline as platinum selling No.1 artists.... It's an amazing feeling to be entering our third year and a proud moment to be launching with such a strong line up."
