NATIONAL DAY (Tuesday September 10) in Gibraltar this year will feature a rebranded, family-friendly Monkey Rocks event, headlined by David Guetta.
Having sold more than 50 million records worldwide, Guetta is one of the biggest names in music production and has won two Grammy Awards out of his six nominations.
The French DJ and producer is no stranger to the south coast of the Iberian Peninsula having played sell out gigs in Marbella in 2014 and San Pedro Alcantara in 2015.
This year’s Monkey Rocks is organised jointly by the Monkey Rocks Festival and the Self Determination for Gibraltar Group.
The event will receive funding from HM Government of Gibraltar, which will be allocated specifically to provide additional security and bag searches as a preventative measure against the excessive alcohol consumption and drug use that have been reported at previous events.
Monkey Rocks 2019 will be held at the Europa Point Stadium and those attending can expect the style of production, administration and security to be very similar to that of the Gibraltar Calling Festival that will take place the weekend before.
For the first time, this year’s event will feature dedicated ‘family-friendly’ seating areas and free tickets for children under 12 will be available with the purchase of an adult ticket.
To ensure ease of access and to alleviate the traffic pressure of the event, a free shuttle bus service will be available between the Europa Point Stadium and the town centre.
Doors are expected to open at 3pm and the first acts are expected to begin at 4pm whilst further artist announcements will be made shortly.
Tickets cost £65 for seating areas and £45 for general entry and are available from today July 25 at
www.buytickets.gi whilst paper free tickets for children 12 years and under will be available in due course.
