Sun, sea and sound – Radio 1 set to sizzle in Ibiza

This summer BBC Radio 1 returns to the White Isle of Ibiza to bring listeners its legendary dance-fuelled weekend packed full with the hottest DJ sets and the best in live music.

For its 15th year in Ibiza, some of Radio 1's biggest stars, including Pete Tong, Annie Mac, Trevor Nelson and Judge Jules, will be broadcasting their radio shows live from the dazzling home of dance music on Friday 6 and Saturday 7 August.

Starting the weekend in spectacular style, Radio 1 hosts a party at Ibiza Rocks on Friday 6 August with a four-hour live broadcast, where Annie Mac and Pete Tong will be joined by a scorching line-up of special guests.

On Saturday 7 August, Radio 1 is set to take Cream at Privilege by storm with a superb line-up headlined by Underworld. They'll be joined by Above & Beyond, The Japanese Popstars, Gareth Wyn, Jaguar Skills and the Radio 1 all-star fraternity of Zane Lowe, Annie Mac, Pete Tong, Judge Jules, Kissy Sell Out, Kutski, Alex Metric and Jaymo & Andy George.

This year, Radio 1 is covering more events than ever before on the White Isle. On Thursday 5 August, Radio 1 will be rocking up at Come Together at Space – one of the freshest nights on the island – recording blistering sets from Grandmaster Flash, Mark Ronson and Zane Lowe.

As the sun goes down, Cocoon gets up and Radio 1 will be there on Monday 2 August to record simmering sets from Sven Vath and friends. Pre-recorded music from both of those nights will be broadcast over Friday 6 and Saturday 7 August.

Pete Tong says: "Radio 1's Weekend in Ibiza is the biggest of the summer. We'll be back with a phenomenal start to the weekend at the Ibiza Rocks Hotel on the Friday and Underworld live from Privilege on Saturday will be a real Balearic moment!"

Jason Carter, Editor, BBC Radio 1, Live Events, adds: "This summer, Radio 1's commitment to bringing the very best in live music to our audience is even bigger. As the key destination for dance music fans, Ibiza is a really important part of our programme of events and lots of our listeners go there every year.

"We've pulled together a strong line-up of programming from the best and most important nights across the island, featuring a cross section of big hitters, classic acts and we'll also be showcasing and supporting new talent."

More details and the broadcast schedule will be announced shortly.
