Roger Waters & Ibiza

The name of Pink Floyd will always be linked with Formentera. The British group, standard-bearers of 70’s psychedelic rock, sought refuge on the small island that at the time was practically virgin. Syd Barrett and Roger Waters were the first to arrive in summer 1967.

In this isolate place, halfway between Europe and Africa, they found inspiration to compose various songs. Some years later, when Barrett left Pink Floyd due to mental health problems, Waters, the band’s new singer, and David Gilmour, the new guitarist, composed in Formenters the soundtrack for the film More. The Sant Ferran de Ses Roques windmill appears on the album’s cover.
