The first weekend in August is always a good one in Ibiza, Radio 1 roll into town and put on some quality line-ups. This year is no exception. Although Radio 1 weekend officially starts tonight with Annie Mac a couple of nights have already been recorded including Cocoon with Sven Vath Andre Galluzzi as well as Come Togerther, the new night that was recorded last night with Grandmaster Flash, Mark Ronson and Zane Lowe. These will be broadcast tonight on radio 1 between 11pm and 5am, so if you have been in Ibiza all week, you are probably already part of the weekend.
Tonight the weekend starts with Annie Mac followed by pete tong, i have already blogged about the lineups but here is a reminder
1900-2100 Annie Mac
Chase and Status feat. Mali and MC Rage
2100-2300 Pete Tong
Swedish House Mafia
Dirty South feat. Rudy
Dont forget, fridays are also Wonderland so im sure the party will continue there, Unless you are going to the other massive event to take place tonight.
Amnesia is celebrating being open for 20 years with a big party tonight. In the main room will be Jeff Mills with the legendary Paul Oakenfold performing on the Terrace, Oakenfold has had his critiques over the last 5 / 6 years but he was a pioneer opf the ecene in the UK, it was Oakenfold that opened the Ibiza spirit to the people of the UK and for that reason, i would cross my fingers hope he plays really well and get myself to Amnesia.
The terrace is playing a bigger part every year in the setup of Amnesia and i think the chance to see someone like Oakenfold play on the Terrace of amnesia is an opportunity i wouldn’t want to miss.
If that’s not enough, then tomorrow (Saturday) you can get back on it with a Cream Special @ Privilege
Cream Special @ Privilege
0000-0130 Pete Tong Live
0130-0230 Underworld Live
0230-0400 Above & Beyond Main Stage Live

All in all a good time to be in Ibiza, Radio 1 weekends are not always the most gob smacking line-ups and the music isn’t going to be to everyone’s taste, one thing they do well though is creating a great vibe and a great party, Radio 1 in Ibiza is a weekend you will always tell people ‘you were there’.
