The Radio 1 Weekend is celebrating it’s 21st anniversary in Ibiza this summer. Dates have yet to be announced but it’s traditionally held on the first weekend of August.
Every Year on the Friday Radio 1 hold a “Free” party – which has recently been held at the Ushuaia Ibiza complex. last year saw a very special Creamfields Ibiza party that took place at Ushuaia and Hard Rock hotel.
The BBC Radio 1 Weekend Ibiza 2016 will be busy and is the most expensive time to visit Ibiza, but there’s a good reason for this. This is the week that all of the promoters put on the best DJs, every club, party and bar is full with an amazing atmosphere. This is when Ibiza truly is at it’s peak and is something to get involved in.
Well all you have to do is take a slow walk down memory lane to the events of last year’s big BBC Radio 1 Weekend Ibiza blowout where crowds flocked in their thousands just to see their favourite international DJ’s perform on the grand stages of Ushuaia and Ibiza Rocks.
With the knowledge settled in that Cream and BBCR1 would team up to take over Ushuaia, the weekend was already set to be a sell-out. However firstly, the BBC Radio 1 Weekend Ibiza extravaganza took control of Ushuaia on the Friday. With a taster of what to expect this year, last season saw MK and Hot Since 82 headline in fanatic style as they were supported by Radio 1 veterans Annie Mac and Pete Tong who delivered a performance only like they could. Names like Calvin Harris and Disclosure also made Friday a very special night.
The following night at the San Antonio Sunset Strip was no different and certainly lived up to expectations. With a superstar billing of underrated talent ready to mesmerise their crowds, the Sunset Strip army was ready. The likes of Duke Dumont, Redlight and Rudimental all ensured revellers were more than satisfied with the music on display.
Set to be bigger than ever in 2016, BBC Radio 1 Weekend Ibiza 2016 celebrates it’s 21st year of existence.
Radio 1’s Annie Mac, Pete Tong and Danny Howard will all host individual events over the course of the chosen weekend. (dates have yet to be announced)
