On Sunday, Radio 1’s Chillest Show will feature a brand new Ibiza Classics Unplugged Piano Session from The Heritage Orchestra & Jules Buckley, performing a stripped back medley of some much-loved dance classics, while Above & Beyond will curate a Sunset Chill Mix.

Benji B will be continuing the chilled vibes from 9-11pm on Radio 1 with guest appearances from Otherline and Honey Dijon, followed by BBC Music Introducing Dance from 11pm-1am, where host Jaguar will showcase some of the best emerging talent on the dance scene. The show will feature an At Home session from ABSOLUTE, and India Jordan will be in the mix with a set of tunes all selected from the BBC Music Introducing Uploader. Radio 1’s Residency will bring the event to a close from 1-3am.

Radio 1’s annual pilgrimage to Ibiza has long had dance fans coming together in the island’s clubs to celebrate the very best the genre has to offer. As the Coronavirus pandemic means it is not possible to broadcast from Ibiza this year, Radio 1 will be aiming to bring the inimitable island vibes to households in the UK and around the world with Radio 1’s Dance Weekend.

As well as listening on Radio 1, fans can join the party by dropping into the world’s biggest nightclub on BBC Sounds at any time across the weekend. Each of the virtual club’s rooms will have its own area on BBC Sounds: the Essential Mix room, the Dance Anthems room, the Radio 1 Dance Room, the Wind Down room and the BBC Music Introducing Dance room.
