Radio 1 back in Ibiza for 20th anniversary
BBC Radio 1’s Annie Mac has announced plans for Radio 1 Ibiza 20 – a weekend of dance music that will take place this summer to celebrate Radio 1’s 20th anniversary of broadcasting shows and hosting events in Ibiza.
The station will broadcast from the Island between Friday 31st July and Sunday 2nd August, with presenters Pete Tong, Annie Mac and Danny Howard hosting live shows and events.
Rhys Hughes, Head of Programmes, Radio 1 and 1Xtra said: “I’m delighted that Radio 1 will be returning to the white isle for our 20th anniversary – Ibiza’s always been a key moment for us to showcase our dance DJs and specialist music output and this year will be even bigger.”
Radio 1’s first broadcast from Ibiza was in July 1995 – an Essential Mix by Nicky Holloway at Manumission at Ku (now Privilege). This was followed by a Pete Tong Essential Mix on 13th August and a Paul Oakenfold Essential Mix on 17th September.
