Posted by Gary on Tuesday 30 July 2013

I’ve been real slack with keeping my blog up to date so far this year, but with my trip over now booked, my enthusiasm has returned!

I usually have all the Radio 1 info up and ready months in advance but its not something ive even looked at this year so far (maybe that’s a sign).

This year, there seems to be slightly more in terms of broadcasts from the Island, however, im not sure if their all broadcasts people can go and be part of.

The breakfast show will be live form Ibiza tomorrow morning, and Danny Howard will be doing his show from Ibiza on Saturday. This is as well as the regular Friday night and essential mix events.

Danny Howard Ibiza 2013

Posted by Gary on Tuesday 18 June 2013

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

Radio 1 weekend – 2012

Posted by Gary on Wednesday 26 October 2011

Its ultra early, i know, but i am already coming under fire with questions about Radio 1 weekend in Ibiza for 2012 so i thought i would put this out there.

Currently, there are no dates set for the Radio 1 weekend in 2012. Anybody’s best guess would be the same weekend as this year which was the 5th and 6th August, though this will not be confirmed until much closer to next summer.

In 2011, radio 1 weekend was due to be broadcast live from a special night from space but a few weeks before the event, they switched this so the live radio shows for Annie Mac and Pete Tong were broadcast from Ushuaia Beach Hotel. They were joined by a large amount of guests, some of them passed of as surprise.

In 2012, its hard to predict what is going to happen, They could be at Ushuaia again, but if im being 100% honest, it didn’t sound very good listening on the radio. I don’t think they will go back to Ibiza Rocks again, as it’s a little to soon. They could host something in Gala Nights, where the Zoo Project have their parties, as they have done events there in the past.

Something i did pick up on though at the end of this season was an interview in a UK newspaper with Pete Tong, he was talking about organising Ibiza’s first ever festival. I think this narrows it down to two options for me. The first option, which i think is likely, would be to have it the weekend before space opens at the end of May and have it tie in with the Ibiza International Music Summit which is May 23rd – 26th, though the dates don’t work right. Or, they may have radio 1 involved and have it as part of the Radio 1 weekend. Over the last decade (and longer) Radio 1 have been and done everything in Ibiza, they have been in lots of different locations, and they have been in most of the clubs. For people who have been around for that long following it all, it’s getting very dull, every year is pretty much the same, however, if they were part of a music festival in Ibiza, then this would be a first for radio 1 and certainly mix it up a little.

MTV have tried this before but it didn’t go down well with the local councils as far as i am aware which is why it didn’t stick around.

Regardless of all this however, Radio 1 will be in Ibiza in 2012 and im sure it will be a roadblock as usual :)

 

Radio 1 weekend Tickets

Posted by Gary on Monday 25 July 2011

Its only two weeks away now and Radio 1 will be what everyone is talking about in Ibiza. They are throwing a free party at Ushuaia but you will need a ticket to get in. Tickets can be picked up at a selection of venues around Ibiza starting from Wednesday the 3rd August.

If you’re not down their on Wednesday at the times stated, i will be very surprised if you get a ticket. If you land in Ibiza on Thursday or Friday, then again, i would be surprised if there were any tickets left. The demand to be at Radio 1 events is remarkable and every man and his dog will be trying to get tickets!

If you do get tickets then a free bus will be put on for you.

IF your on the Island on Wednesday then get down to the following places for tickets:

San Antonio:
Café Mambo from 1100
Ibiza Rocks Bar from 1100

Playa D’en Bossa:
Sands Beach Restaurant – 1000
Ushuaïa Ibiza Beach Hotel – residents only from 1000

Ibiza Town:
Base Bar from 2000

Radio 1 Weekend – Ibiza 2011

PLEASE NOTE THIS BLOG POST IS FROM 2011

**Last Update 22 July 2011: – Full Ibiza Details

Radio 1 weekend can generally be looked at as the busiest weekend of the year in Ibiza, mainly because it is the height of the season, but also because Radio 1 rolls onto the island.

Over the last few years i feel radio 1 have taken their foot of the gas a little when it comes to the live broadcasts from the island. In 2009 and 2010 the live show came on a Friday only with other shows pre recorded.  This is mainly down to the Radio 1 schedule having all their dance music in one big slot on a Friday, however id like to hear more live broadcasts this year like they used to when they broadcast live for over 30 hours over 3 days!!
