    just wondering.. when will radio one weekend be confirmed for ibiza?

  2. Hi Zoe

    They usually announce the exact dates for Radio 1 weekend around May or June time. It can be annoying because if thats what you are going for then its getting a little late to book your holiday in May or June. Ill get in touch and see if they can give me a date for the weekend and if not maybe a date they will announce it.

  3. Have you found out the date for the radio 1 ibiza weekend… iv been checkin a few chat rooms and people are saying 2nd wk in august, i dont no how people can be so sure. iv booked my hol for 3rd august for a week… it will b my first yr over there and iv got great expectations unfortunatly some people in chat rooms are freakin me out sayin radio one is over rated ect ect … i was in tenerife wen they wer there and had the best time out. is it what people say …..mayhem and that you cant get the true ibiza experience?????????????

  4. Hi cbicky

    I have sent a couple of emails to different addresses at BBC radio but so far ive not had any replies, Radio 1 weekend is traditionally on the 2nd weekend of August but nobody will know for sure until its released.

    I wouldnt worry about what other people say about radio 1 weekend, everyone has a different opinion so you will always get people slagging it off. If its your first time in Ibiza then you will love it, when ive been with different people they have all said Ibiza surpassed their expectations.

    As for the Ibiza experience, its all around you in Ibiza 🙂

  5. Judge Jules has confirmed on his radio show that the radio 1 weekend in ibiza for 2008 will be the 1st 2nd and 3rd of August. This is one week earlier than when they usually have their weekend.

  6. Bloody typical! change it when we book for 2nd week!

  7. Am gutted!! 8 girlies have just booked to go out 2nd weekend!!! Lets see how much it is to change our flights…..

  8. Woo We arrive in Ibiza on the 1st Aug and leave on the 15th.
    Soooooooo glad we are there for radio1 weekender:D

  9. well gutted. me and the boys av booked our flights for the 4th. its our first time to ibiza aswell. we wer all goin for the 2nd week of august thinking it was radio 1 weekend. well pissed off. doubt we’ll be able to change it. we’ve booked to stay at the new ibiza rocks. any idea wat its like there?

  10. Hi Jamie

    I ve never stayed at the hotel that is now Ibiza Rocks hotel though i have stayed close to it. I would worry about missing out on Radio weekend, Although it is good to go it wont stop you having a great time by missing it.

    A little bit of info about Ibiza Rocks Hotel can be found here http://www.ibizablog.co.uk/ibiza-rocks-hotel/ A Guy from Ibiza Rocks called mike left a comment with info im guessing this was Mike the owner of Manumission and Ibiza Rocks

  11. typical!!! we booked the wrong weekend, we just went on what happened the past few years!! nooooooo

  12. Ive seen on ibiza-voice.com that Pete Tong confirmed on his show that radio 1 weeknd on its normal dates of the second weeknd in Aug 2008. Lets all hope that Jules has got it wrong and tongys right!

  13. ibiza-voice.com

    pete tong says 10th-11th??

  14. I will try and listen to the show tonight to confirm this. If this is the case then they have changed the dates, however there is no news of this anywere else that i can find.

    Did anybody else hear this?

  15. I trust Tongy, haha. It doesnt make sense for them to change it to the first weeknd after all these years of doing it the second weeknd. Fingers crossed anyway, were all booked fort he 7th Aug.

  16. The Admin over at Ibiza-Voice recon its still the first weekend.

    I have emailed Judge jules asking him about it as he replies to every email so we should get some sort of an answer.

  17. I have just had confirmation from Judge Jules the Radio 1 weekend will be 1st 2nd 3rd August with the Radio one party likely to be at Space

  18. Thanks for the Info trevor

  19. Pete Tong says it’s the second weekend?
    What’s cracking???

    I’m there for both anyway, getting married Friday the 8th… would be awesome if it was the second weekend, but am there from the 1st anyway.

  20. i suppose we will have to await the Radio 1 announcement as Judge Jules says it is and Tongy says something different. I hope its the first week as thats when i am booked to go out

  21. Radio 1 have confirmed on their website

  22. Gutted – they always have second weekend so why the change this year? Booked hols a few weeks to go out for that weekend and pointless changing now.

  23. Not sure why everyone is getting so worked up. Radio 1 weekend is the busiest, sweatiest, most annoying crowded weekend of the season!

    Far more enjoyable to listen to at home and then party when you can actually move

    Count yourselves fortunate…even JJ agrees in his article above

  24. where would you say the best hotel to stay would be? location wise & price?
    Booked my tickets for the 1st weekend in august in january at a whopper £60 yahooooo! cannot wait! But am travelling from Dubai, where i work & live now for Emirates. So it’ll be a right little mission for me getting to london, then the baleric island…but so worth it! ha ha!

  25. Leanne, Im travelling from Dubai as well, prob via Gatwick on the Weds 30th. Are you on facebook?

  26. Was Just Wondering Where Abouts Radio 1 Are Actually Going When In Ibiza ??

  27. They will announce this closer to the time, The radio shows will be broadcast live from Ibiza from various bars, Mambo will almost deffinately be used.

    I expect they will broadcast live from one of the clubs one night, probably saturday.
