Radio 1 plans a summer of dance on the road

BBC Radio 1 presenters including Annie Mac, Pete Tong and Danny Howard are hitting the road this summer to attend live music festivals.

From stage takeovers at festivals to live broadcasts from Ibiza and more, the station is planning to have a presence at a number of festivals throughout the UK and beyond.

Events include Parklife in Manchester on Saturday 11th – Sunday 12th June and Hideout in Croatia on 27th June.

The station will be hosting a ‘Radio 1 Summer of Dance’ stage at this year’s T in the Park festival and will be live from the stage from 7pm till midnight on July 8th July.

Radio 1 will return to Ibiza from Friday 5th – Sunday 7th August, broadcasting special shows featuring sets from new and established dance acts, alongside the Radio 1 dance family. And for the first time ever, the station will host a stage at the Chelmsford and Staffordshire locations of V Festival.

Finally, in September, Pete Tong will be bringing listeners a two hour Essential Mix from Bestival’s Isle of Wight location, to be broadcast on 17th September.

In addition to the summer of dance, Radio 1 will also have a presence at festivals such as Radio 1’s Big Weekend, Glastonbury, Reading and Leeds, SXSW.

Around 40 local BBC Radio stations are working closely with BBC Music on a range of festivals across the summer.
