Annie Mac says: “Radio 1’s Summer of Dance is bringing some huge line ups to some huge festivals across the summer. This year for Ushuaia we wanted to make a statement by showcasing the wonderful roster of DJ talent that we have under the R1Dance umbrella. It’s such a great line up of DJs from hugely established legends like Pete Tong to brand new members of our family like Danish producer Kolsch – we’ll be covering everything from grime to garage to jungle to house to techno – and it’s gonna be great fun.”
Rhys Hughes, Head of Programmes, Radio 1 and 1Xtra says: “Ibiza is a big moment in Radio 1’s calendar for demonstrating the station’s commitment to dance music and we’re delighted to return to the White Isle with such a fresh line up of our Radio 1 dance family.”
Alongside the live broadcast from Ushuaia, Annie Mac, The Radio 1 Breakfast Show with Nick Grimshaw, Danny Howard and MistaJam will all be hosting shows directly from the dance music capital, with special Essential Mixes also being broadcast from Radio 1 in Ibiza.
