Radio 1 Weekend – Ibiza 2011

Click For >> Radio 1 2012

**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!!

In 2011 Radio 1 weekend has been confirmed for the weekend of Friday 5th August. This year Radio 1 will not be live from Ibiza Rocks hotel which personally is a good thing as it had a massive chance of being the same as the last two years.

The info has changed slightly since i last updated this post, now Radio 1 will be hosting a couple of Events In Ushuaia. Initially it was reported the party starting in Space at 7pm but this is no longer the case as Space is now not part of the Radio 1 party, though they will be broadcasting the Essential Mix from there. Unsurprisingly for people who have been following Ibiza this year, Ushuaia will be getting in on the Action. Using Ushuaia gives the weekend a different look, Its in Playa Den Bossa which will make a change and though the format may be similar to Ibiza Rocks hotel i think it will have a completely different and fresh feel to it.

Annie Mac will start the weekend form Ushuaia with her radio show followed by Pete Tong with his. Ushuaia has made a big splash this year and they are hosting a lot of good parties. They have had Usha play (love it or hate it) and word is they have another big surprise name later this year.

Radio 1 parties there will be really good, although I’ve not been in the hotel myself, i have been to Ushuaia parties and I’ve never been disappointed.  The only issue i can see with using Ushuaia is people having to choose! The Ushuaia party will be free but if you choose to go to Ushuaia, i would be surprised if you get into space after for the main event.

After Ushuaia a special 6 hour Essential mix will be broadcast from over the road in Space.

  1. I'm all booked up – 28th July – 7th August. I can't wait. I have been the last two years and wonder what they have in store this year.

  2. Hi Joanne

    i am expecting it to be at Ibiza Rocks hotel again this year or somewere else enclosed, Dont think the local authorities are to happy letting Radio 1 run a mock round San Antonio any more

  3. Hi Caroline

    There is no set date for the announcement of the Radio 1 weekend. It will be announced at some point on a Friday night probably starting with Annie macs show.

    People like myself and other Ibiza bloggers and websites will be publishing the information as soon as its revealed.

  4. Hi there, I asked Judge Jules via his web-site Q&A and he (or one of his helpers!) has confirmed this morning 5th – 7th August.

  5. hi joanne,me and my girlfriend are going for the first time this year and have booked the same week as you,is this the right week coz ive heard off someone that its the week after

  6. Hi Jonny, see the post below about Judge Jules reply via his web-site Q+A – it is 5th – 7th August according to him. You will love it, it will be my 6th year in a row in Ibiza!

  7. Hi, is the radio 1 ibiza weekend an event like radio 1s big weekend? as in, do you have to just register for free tickets and hope that you are lucky? or is it a free event where anyone can go? or do you have to purchase tickets?? ive searched all over google but I cant find any info. Would be great if someone could let me know! 😀 cheers in advance.

  8. hi my fiance and me are trying to plan ibiza honeymoon 2012 but wnt to tie it with radio 1 weekend for that year. we are getting married on the 28th july 2012 and r guessing the radio 1 w.end would follow the nxt again w.end. we r ibiza virgins so have no clue wheres best to book (san antonio or san antonio bay) or we would prefer a package deal with flights hotel and gig tickets 2 to secure everything at once. r there such packages and when would be the best tym to look and book them. thanks charmaine.

  9. Hi Charmaine

    You can use these day's as a guide but the weekend is never set in stone and in the past has moved.

    The earlier you book everything the cheaper it would be for the flights etc. San An is a good base for the Radio 1 weekend normally, you could stay in the Bay but its a lot quieter and a taxi ride to San An.

    There are loads of package holidays available and you can usually get all your tickets before your go, though its very rare to hear of things selling out.

  10. Hi Jaylan

    Its not like One Big Weekend, you can usually just Rock up to the venue and party your Socks Off, In the past it has jst been in Bars and beaches etc, When it is in Ibiza Rocks hotel im presuming its first come first server as there is limited space in there.

  11. Thanks Gary!! So if I just make sure I get there well in advance I should be able to enjoy it all?? wicked!! I cant wait ! Maybe see some of you there 😉

  12. Lol, its a little early yet!! It will probably be this weekend next year! Make sure you go a few days before though as this year they gave the tickets away for tonight on Wednesday I believe

  13. what are the dates that radio1 are in ibiza rocks as we are booking it soon also want to see the legend me david guetta thanks

  14. Hi Kyle, Chances are the weekend will be the same as it was this year, however nothing is accurate at this time of the year.

    I wouldn’t count on Radio 1 being at Ibiza Rocks as it wasn’t there this year, Also, pete tong has been talking about a Ibiza Festival so this might be part of it

  15. We are looking to book again for next year, and want to go when it’s radio 1s big weekend. We want to book asap as obviously all prices will go up, but do you know roughly when radio one announce the dates?

  16. Okay Cheers, but usually it’s the first weekend in August? So this year the 3rd to 5th? Will just have to take a gamble

  17. yeah, unfortunately it is a gamble at this time of year, if you go of the past dates its only once they have moved it that i can think of and it was the weekend after.
