HRH Road Trip: HRH RTX

The Sun is shining and we have a scorcher of an announcement. After 9 epic years across many amazing venues in Ibiza, this year HRH Roadtrip found a new home at the super club EDEN and we’ll be back for the awesome 10th Anniversary event: HRH RTX!

As you’ll see, the RTX line-up is one of our best ever, pulling out all the stops to provide the best rock, metal, stoner, prog party you can find.

Let’s kick off with one of the biggest bands still touring Planet Earth. Yes, next year one of the first wave space rock bands (founded way back in 1969) will be celebrating their 50th Anniversary with a world tour, and stopping off in Ibiza along the way! Welcome the amazing HAWKWIND to HRH RTX! Famed, of course, for ‘Silver Machine’, the band also once featured Motörhead’s legendary Lemmy Kilmister in its ranks.

Sticking with biker rock and Lemmy connections, we welcome back Phil Campbell and the Bastard Sons to Ibiza. Phil’s outfit was founded after Motörhead disbanded, following Lemmy’s death. The band features Phil’s three sons (hence the colourful moniker!) They’ve already played support slots to Guns N’ Roses, Saxon and Airbourne, and are a firm favourite with the HRH Community.

We’re also proud to announce Joe Lynn Turner (of Deep Purple and Rainbow fame) and Bernie Marsden (known for his work with Whitesnake, with hits like ‘Fool For Your Loving’ and ‘Here I Go Again’ to his credit). Two big-hitters, who’ve each created rich tapestries of music that span the decades.

We’ll also be bringing metal back to Ibiza once again with the fantastic Orange Goblin & Raging Speedhorn. Pirate metal crew Red Rum will also be in attendance. They’ll also be off-the-wall metal and added craziness in the shape of Footprints In The Custard.

Importing sludge, doom and more metal into the mix are Oxfordshire’s Desert Storm and Canterbury’s OHHMS. Italian-based Arthemis round off this section nicely with their modern thrash metal styles.

Welsh rockers Henry’s Funeral Shoe, blues-based hard rock band Everyday Heroes, high-octane rockers Gin Annie, psychedelic heavy blues rock band Pearl Handled Revolver and hard rockers Falling Red complete the bill, to make sure there’s something for every music fan across the genres.

We’ll also be offering the party boat trip, sunset boat trip, pool shenanigans, the biker ride-out across the island, unplugged sessions, pop-up parties. You name it, we’ve got it! And as ever, the event is shaped by what the HRH community want, ask, and vote for.

Once again, HRH has 5 fantastic hotels spread around the venue, all within 5 minutes’ walk in glorious sunshine. Hotel package deals are available now and with flights from just £60 return, it’s a great time to saddle up and get on board for the tenth cycle of HRH Roadtrip.

Remember: Tickets will sell fast, so book as soon as possible to avoid disappointment. Check out or telephone on 0207 193 1164.


About Louise Swift

I first went to a gig in 1981, Gillan at Leeds University. I've been a regular gig goer ever since. I haven't kept count of how many gigs I've been to over the intervening years, but it's a lot! My favourite bands are AC/DC then, in no particular order, Anti-Nowhere League, Slaughter and the Dogs, Towers of London and Dirt Box Disco. I tend to like Glam/Punk and rude offensive lyrics, not sure what that says about me but as Animal would say 'So What!' The question was recently put to me - did I write for any online publications? My reply - No, but I'd like to! Planetmosh was suggested and I found myself offering to review Aces High Festival. Easy peasy I thought! Well not quite, if a jobs worth doing it's worth doing well! I had sixteen bands to research. I found I actually enjoyed that and it kept me too busy to be making lunatic comments on Facebook! ;) Then I felt a bit inadequately qualified. I mean, who am I to comment on others, when my musical expertise extends to being able to play a mean Greensleeves on the recorder and a passable Annie's song on the flute! Haven't picked up either instrument for years! What I do have, however, is over 30 years of experience as a gig goer, so I can comment on what I like and what I don't! It's only my opinion and, if I don't like a band it doesn't mean they are bad, just not to my own liking. I admire anyone who has the guts to get up on that stage and have a go!
