About 1Xtra Loves Summer

2008 saw 1Xtra embark on it's biggest and best summer tour yet. We rocked it in Malia, Ibiza, Ayia napa and at the Notting Hill and Leeds Carnival. Here's what went down.

Ibiza Girls


Skpeta and Westwood

On the 25th & 26th July Westwood tore it up at Pleasure Beach in Malia.

The Saturday night pool party saw the cream of the UK grime scene in the form of Ghetto, Skepta and Tinchy Stryder take to the stage. In an historic moment all three MCs joined each other onstage for a legendary freestyle.

Crazy Cousins in Ayia Napa

On 8 August 1Xtra took over Ayia Napa with the Rampage Crew. You heard all the goss from the beach to the bars, and found out how you could still have a wicked holiday on a tight budget!

On 9 August Rampage hosted a 1Xtra party at Havana Bar with guests Sway and Taio Cruz, Crazy Cousins, DJ NG and Tinie Tempah.
