The radio one weekend is now in full swing kicking off with Annie Mac on Thursday night. Listen to her show on catch up radio here http://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/b07m495h (took us ages to find that link on the ridiculously unhelpful and over app-i-fied i player website – see info on playing bbc content whilst outside the uk at the foot of this article).
Friday morning kicked off with Nick Grimshaw presenting the traditional breakfast show live from Mambo on the sunset strip. Catch up stream of the show here http://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/b07ky4zq
Later on Friday the party moves across the island to Playa D’en Bossa with an open air opening party at Ushuaia until midnight before the party moves over the road to the Space Nightclub for what we predict will be the hottest and biggest Ibiza party to date.
With many of Ibiza’s best connected faces and expert blaggers reporting the Creamfields night as the toughest guest list for years, and some in a state of shock at having to part with actual money to walk through the door, the 75€ ticket entry will get you in to see the last season of the iconic Carl Cox in the last season of the Iconic Space nightclub, playing the Iconic Radio One Essential Mix from midnight to two.
Consider it 25€ an icon and the price doesn’t feel quite as painful.
Our advice – get your ticket asap. Sure to sell out in advance and by early Friday evening may already be in short supply.
Saturday evening is an absolute institution as Radio one presents the sunset hours at Cafe Mambo on San Antonio’s sunset strip.
With more big names than a Christmas top of the pops, it is always a great event – and all that celeb action comes at a price tag of ‘free’, as there is no admission charge – a welcome cool down for an overheated friday wallet.
A night much loved by the local residents who will be in Mint condition, mingling with Ibiza’s August tourists on the extended Mambo terrace.

If you live or work in Ibiza you probably know all about this already. If you are on your holidays this VPN service is one of many available, and better than most. It works with pc, android and ios, and has a free option adequate for occasional use or a 4.99 paid option for faster and regular use. https://www.totalvpn.com/
