Last night Zane Lowe announced the full details of BBC Radio 1 in Ibiza, including the full line-up of a massive free Radio 1 event hosted by DJs Annie Mac, Pete Tong and Rob Da Bank – all taking place on Friday 5 August.

Radio 1's legendary annual trip to the White Isle kicks off at 3.30pm (local time) with a Rob Da Bank "Wig Party" warming up the crowds at a spectacular free party for 4000 people hosted by Radio 1 at the Ushuaia Ibiza Beach Hotel in Playa d'en Bossa. Set to be one of the hottest parties on the island, Rob will be joined by special guests SBTRK, Totally Enormous Extinct Dinosaurs, Hip Hop Karaoke, Professor Green and DJ Alfredo.

From 7-11pm (UK time) the party goes live on-air with Annie Mac and Pete Tong manning the decks alongside some of the biggest and hottest dance acts on the scene:

Wristbands for entrance to the free Radio 1 Party will be available in advance in Ibiza only from Wednesday 3 August on a first come/first served basis at selected outlets. For full details on tickets and travel information to the party go to

The Ushuaia Ibiza Beach Hotel has already proven its success this season in Ibiza with several massive parties and replaces the previously announced Radio 1 party at Space that had to be moved, due to unforeseen logistical reasons.

The Radio 1 party closes at 12am (local time) but continues on-air from 11pm-5am (UK time) with a special extended Live Essential Mix from "Come Together" at the world-famous Space nightclub, featuring a stellar line-up of Annie Mac, Zane Lowe, Deadmau5, Knife Party live, Magnetic Man live & Skream and Benga.

The mammoth 12 hour live broadcast finally comes to a close between 5-7am (UK time) with Rob Da Bank hanging out on the Space roof terrace with special guests popping in alongside some of his music highlights from the earlier Wig Party.

Neil Wyatt, Editor, BBC Radio 1, Live Events, says: "Ibiza is one of the most exciting destinations for Radio 1's audience and still remains at the very heartbeat of global dance music. This year Radio 1 will be moving its iconic free party to an amazing new venue in Playa d'en Bossa where we look forward to being joined by up to four thousand of our listeners.

We're proud to have secured a huge line-up of world-beating DJs and artists to guarantee Radio 1 In Ibiza will be unmissable event for dance music lovers both in Ibiza and in the UK."

The party continues on Saturday afternoon with Vernon Kay returning to Ibiza once again to present a live show at 4pm (UK time) featuring a host of Radio 1 dance DJs from the previous night, dance anthems and highlights from the Radio 1 party. Vernon then hands over to Trevor Nelson at 7pm (UK time) when the airwaves turn simulcast for Trevor live from Ibiza with a selection of sizzling grooves to close 2011's trip to Ibiza for both Radio 1 and Radio 1Xtra listeners.
