What is BBC Radio 1 Weekend in Ibiza?
How do we begin to describe Ibiza’s most anticipated weekends of the summer?
Would we go as far as saying that waking up on the day that BBC Radio 1 Ibiza commences is like waking up on Christmas morning? Yes. Yes, we would.
We all know that BBC Radio 1 is the birthplace of many iconic dance music DJs and artists. And as the sound that usually gets us in the mood on a Friday night – arguably the radio station that first induced that “Friday Feeling”!
So what better way to pay homage to the UK-based music pioneer than to dedicate an entire mini-festival weekend to BBC Radio 1 in Ibiza?
You may have heard of BBC Radio 1 weekend in Hackney, dedicated to RnB, Hip-Hop, rap, grime, and pop. But if it’s House music that you love – then Ibiza is the one for you.
Usually held over the course of 3 days, and hosted at multiple infamous Ibiza landmarks and Superclubs, it’s a clubbing experience that pulls out all the stops.
In previous years we have seen BBC Radio 1 weekend Ibiza hosted at Cafe Mambos, Ushuaia, Privilege, Space (unfortunately not with us anymore), and Ibiza Rocks, with some live recording also taking place at underground havens, DC10 and Sankeys.
You can expect to hear from music royalty such as Annie Mac, Pete Tong, B. Traits, Danny Howard, and Toddla T (although final line-ups won’t be released until nearer the time). As well as appearances from the likes of Mistajam, Heidi, George Fitzgerald, Calvin Harris, Katy B, Rudimental, Maya Jane Coles, Craig David, Dizzee Rascal, Big Narstie, Redlight, Carl Cox, Groove Armada, and so many more!
And in terms of entertainment imagine the unimaginable… acrobatics, aerial silks artists, flying trapeze performers, dancers, inflatables, mad lazor shows, ice cannons, stilts, water aviation performances, and the list goes on…!
