A couple of years ago, i was sat at work one Friday morning listening to the radio 1 Dj competition. I remember it so well, because there was a Blackpool lad on. It’s not often we get on the news or radio, unless it’s a bad news!
Danny Howard was the Dj and he wiped the floor with his competition. His prize ended up being the prize that just keeps giving. Warmup slot at Ushuaia for the radio 1 weekend, followed by an invite to play at space the same night, if i remember rightly, he ended up doing a 6 hour set in there. The following year offered more gigs, a Radio show and more of a season in Ibiza.
In 2013, Danny has decent summer schedule for his Ibiza gigs.
I feel a bit guilty starting this blog post off talking about him as though he is a competition winner because he is now far from that. It’s a fairy tale with an amazing ending though, i don’t know Danny personally (though there is probably a connection through mates, Blackpool inst that big!) though it seems like the boy next door has done good!
Enough of the sentimental guff, Go and check Danny out this summer if you’re in Ibiza. He has already played Pacha this season and the pre party on Mambos for which he appeared on Mambo TV.
So far i have the following dates for Danny
- Friday 5th July – Judgement, Ibiza
- Friday 12th July – Judgement, Ibiza
- Friday 19th July – Judgement, Ibiza
- Monday 22nd July – Pacha, Ibiza
- Friday 2nd August – Judgement, Ibiza
- 2nd – 4th August – Radio 1, Ibiza weekend
- Saturday 3rd August – Cream/Radio 1, Privilege, Ibiza
