The Ushuaia Ibiza Beach Hotel has already proven its success this season in Ibiza with several massive parties and replaces the previously announced Radio 1 party at Space that had to be moved, due to unforeseen logistical reasons.

The mammoth 12 hour live broadcast finally comes to a close between 5am-7am (UK time) with Rob Da Bank hanging out on the Space roof terrace with special guests popping in alongside some of his music highlights from the earlier ‘Wig Party’.
Neil Wyatt, Editor, BBC Radio 1, Live Events says: “Ibiza is one of the most exciting destinations for Radio 1's audience and still remains at the very heartbeat of global dance music. This year Radio 1 will be moving its iconic free party to an amazing new venue in Playa d'en Bossa where we look forward to being joined by up to four thousand of our listeners.
We’re proud to have secured a huge line up of world-beating DJs and artists to guarantee Radio 1 In Ibiza will be unmissable event for dance music lovers both in Ibiza and in the UK”.
