Grimmy to open Radio 1's Ibiza Weekend
BBC Radio 1 is returning to Ibiza this August with Nick Grimshaw providing the official Warm-Up Party.
Nick will be hosting his breakfast show live from the island on Friday 1st August then officially kicking off the weekend with another hour long warm-up show at the Ushuaia Beach Hotel in Playa d’en Bossa at 6pm local time.
Zane Lowe, Annie Mac, Pete Tong, Danny Howard, MistaJam, B. Traits and Toddla T are also confirmed to jet off to the White Isle to take part.
Pete Tong comments: “Radio 1 in Ibiza is an annual tradition and the biggest event of the summer. The free party at Ushuaia will be a phenomenal start to the weekend, and going back to back with Sasha during the Essential Mix at Privilege will be a big moment.”
The Warm-Up Party with Nick Grimshaw will also be streamed in vision on the Radio 1 website and highlights of the weekend will be on the station’s YouTube channel.
Rhys Hughes, Head of Programmes, Radio 1 and 1Xtra says: “The Radio 1 Ibiza weekend is one of the biggest events in the Radio 1 calendar and is the focal point of our dance output. I’m delighted to be returning to Ibiza for the 19th consecutive year and showcasing the cream of global DJ talent. Ushuaia, as the biggest free event on the island, goes from strength to strength with a stellar line-up including a few surprises. The Radio 1 Cream @ Privilege party, again with a monumental line-up continues to be the highlight of the Ibiza season.”
