The most anticipated weekend in the Ibiza clubbing calendar awaits - BBC Radio 1 has announced the return of its acclaimed Dance Weekend to the white isle for 2023.

For those unfamiliar, BBC Radio 1 is the largest, most popular and most listened to radio station in the UK, airing an around-the-clock program of fresh new dance music from the most exciting upcoming and established artists.

Every year during peak summer, BBC R1 takes to Ibiza for an extended weekend of live broadcasts and explosive sets from the best artists and DJs in the scene right now.

Friday, July 28 is the start date you are looking for, with the program continuing through to Sunday, July 30 (which, from experience, typically means a Monday morning finish), don't worry you've got plenty of time to plan your trip accordingly.

Announced by the long-reigning host of BBC R1's Friday night Dance Party, tastemaker and DJ Danny Howard proudly confirmed the unexpected change of venue for this year's weekender live on air during his weekly slot.

Formerly broadcasted from the island's most famous sunset spot Cafè Mambo as well as from live takeovers at some the island's best venues, this year the BBC are taking it up a notch to give us a weekend like we’ve never seen.

The eccentric 528 Ibiza (former home of the island’s infamous Zoo Project party) will be taking the lead for 2023. The first time hosting an event of this caliber, the quirky venue will lay on four epic stages including Radio 1 Dance, Radio 1’s Dance Anthems, Radio 1 Relax, and BBC Music Introducing.

Keeping us firmly on our toes, they have revealed the first five names on the line-up and as always, they have not disappointed. Eats Everything, Hannah Wants, Fisher, Patrick Topping, and LP Giobbi are set for San Antonio at the end of July, with many more names still to be announced. Keep your eyes peeled.

With international flights currently at the cheapest they’re likely to be, now is the time to act and get booking your once in-a-lifetime vacation to the White Isle.

For now, we’ll leave you with a knockout set from Diplo recorded live at Café Mambo, for Radio 1’s Dance Weekend 2022.

You can buy tickets from 02.24.23.
