Radio 1 wknd Ibiza artist announcement

Radio 1 spreads its wings and pulls out all the stops for its 20th anniversary.

Radio 1 weekend in Ibiza, taking place between the Friday the 31st of July and Sunday the 2nd of August, is about to turn 20 years old! Over the course of three days, Radio 1's Pete Tong, Annie Mac and Danny Howard will each host events spread across the island's dancefloors, broadcasting live across the UK.

The first event of the weekend, will be at Ushuaïa, the Friday celebrations broadcast live on Radio 1 from 6-11pm (UK time). Annie Mac will host this shindig, which will feature sets from Calvin Harris and Disclosure - anyone heard of them?

On the Saturday Danny Howard will host a four-hour event on San Antonio's sunset strip, broadcast live on Radio 1 from 6-10pm (UK time) and featuring sets from Rudimental and Duke Dumont as the sun goes down over the sea.

Meanwhile back in Bossa, Saturday will also mark the Creamfields takeover of Ibiza, which will spread across the three Ushuaïa complex venues, including a 20 Year Radio 1 stage at Ushuaïa, details on that here. Creamfields Ibiza is now replacing the Cream Radio 1 event previously held at Privilege, but (just when you thought this day couldn't get any bigger) Privilege confirms it will still be throwing something special for this evening, details to come.

The final event will be staged at Ibiza Rocks on Sunday, with Pete Tong on hosting duties. With yet another cracker line-up including Faithless and Kölsch, the event will be of course be broadcast live on Radio 1 from 7-11pm (UK time).

“Globally Dance music is bigger than ever and the fact that Radio 1 has been at the forefront hosting events from Ibiza for the past 20 years is a massive landmark that I am hugely proud to be a part of. Radio 1 Ibiza 20 is going to be an amazing weekend of music and I can't wait to celebrate!” - Pete Tong

There will also be a number of smaller events broadcast from secret locations across the island, but you'll have to stumble across those in person or on the grape vine for now... The full line up for Radio 1 Ibiza 20, and details of how to grab your tickets, will be revealed on Radio 1 next week, with a Spotlight news piece hot on the BBC's heels, so look out for it.

20 years of love for the island, we look forward to having you back, Radio 1.
