**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.
