Radio 1 weekend – 2012

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 🙂


Zoo Project 25 June

Noahs Ark Opening

On the 11th June the zoo project will set sail with Noahs Ark. Noahs Ark boat parties are the official boat party for The Zoo Project. It seems that every man and his dog are doing boat parties at the moment, however if i was going to go on any boat parties it would be this one.

The Zoo Project’s renowned boat party – Noah’s Ark takes you on a once in a life time experience around the mysterious island of Es Vedra, off the coast of Ibiza.

Long ago, God told Noah to gather two of each animal, one female and one male, from across the world as great floods were coming to wipe out all wickedness and sin. Noah obeyed and with the animals safe inside the ark, treacherous rain began to fall. The rain poured down for 40 days and 40 nights, resulting in the earth being flooded for one hundred and fifty days.

As the sun finally appeared, a small dove returned from its second flight and whispered into Noah?s ear telling him of a mystical white island. Hopeful, Noah set sail towards the island. As the boat got closer the animals began to feel exhilarated and started to celebrate rapturously. Behind a gigantic magnetic rock in the middle of the sea, a bright white glow appeared on the horizon, the dove was right, they had found the promised land. They christened the island ‘The White Isle’ after its distinctive glow.

On arrival to the island Noah built a place of worship in an old abandoned zoo known as Galanight. Gathering all the living creatures in the world, Noah led the animals to his safe haven. Enchanted with the Zoo and it’s surroundings the animals befittingly renamed it The Zoo Project and vowed to visit every Saturday and Wednesday and assist in keeping the parable of Noah’s Ark alive.

Im not sure what time the boat leaves at the moment but im sure the Zoo Project will be the best boat party in Ibiza this year.

What more, getting a ticket for Noahs Ark will also grant you entry into the Zoo Project that day, They will also provide your transport there!

Space Opening 2011

Jump ToLineup

Space will open on Sunday the 29th of May 2011, Originally, i reported that the opening party would be spread over two days again as it was in 2010, however this information seems to have changed and it now only seems to be the Sunday which will be the opening party. It’s a shame, because i thought the two-day parties would become something in themselves, however after being on the island for the opening weekend in 2010, many people said the first day was quiet, maybe this is the result.

The line-ups will come out in dribs and drabs, i will update this post when i read about it, however the main update will be when the full lineup is announced.

If you get the opportunity, this opening weekend is a great weekend to be on the Island, everybody has a buzz about them because it’s the start of a fresh year and they have been waiting all winter for it! This post is about space but the opening weekend is about so much more, it will be a time of year you never have a bad word to say!
