BBC Radio 2 will join its younger sibling in Ibiza this year, marking the first time the station has broadcast from the sunny White Isle.
Set to celebrate dance music over the past three decades, the station will bring performances, interviews and more courtesy of the likes of Zoe Ball, Gary Davis and Scissor Sister Ana Matronic.
Lewis Carnie, Head of Radio 2 says: “Ibiza has been a favourite holiday destination for our listeners for years, so I’m delighted that Radio 2 will be heading there for the first time, to present a range of special programmes from the island this June. Many of our presenters have been a key part of Ibiza’s dance history so it’s great that we can take them back and remind our listeners of the island’s great cultural heritage in music.”
Kicking off on 29th June, Radio 2 will team up with the Hard Rock Hotel to ring the ‘Sounds of the 80s’; meanwhile the following day will see a live broadcast from the terrace of Pikes Hotel. Maxi Jazz of Faithless will join Zoe Ball for a special performance, plus there’ll be a poolside-mix from Groove Armada as well as live acoustic set from Morcheeba.
More guests appearing across the weekend are set to be announced in due course.
