A few quotes from the hosts and one of 1xtra management below:
Mark Strippel, Head of Programmes, BBC Radio 1Xtra said, “Ibiza has increasingly grown in prominence as a destination for the British Black music scene, so it’s only right that 1Xtra brings its own summer celebration to a big Saturday night audience on 1Xtra and Radio 1.”
DJ Target said, “The magic of Ibiza is something that grabbed me the first time I visited the island, and having DJ’d there over the last few years and seen the massive growth in the music that we specialise in at 1Xtra, I just cannot wait to get out there with this huge line up of artists and shut it down. It’s going to be historic!”
Charlie Sloth said, “Ibiza has changed a lot over the last five years with rap and grime being embraced on the island in a huge way. So 1Xtra making its first appearance at the legendary Ibiza Rocks is huge and crazy exciting!”
1xtra has been consistently supporting UK artists since its launch in 2002, and the station has been instrumental in bringing UK urban music to the mainstream. They broadcast 24/7 on digital radio, TV and the Internet.
