Merky Festival

  • Ian Walsh

Ibiza’s first and only UK urban festival, Stormzy presents #MERKY Festival has quickly established itself as one of the island’s most highly anticipated annual dates. The party takes over Ibiza Rocks Hotel bringing with it loads of untamed grime fierceness for an all-day party that continues until dark. With daytime poolside sets and multiple stages, as well as secret room parties, this two-day festival makes history as putting grime and rap on the Ibiza map. When he’s not performing in front of tens of thousands at Glastonbury, the UK grime giant Stormzy brings it just as fiercely to the comparatively intimate poolside setting of the “home of the pool party.” Besides Stormzy himself, past line-ups have included the fiercest and freshest urban talent currently on the scene across the two days, including J Hus, Mabel, Tiffany Calver, Krept & Konan plus many more.
