Café Mambo and BBC Radio 1 have a long and illustrious relationship dating to the very first days the popular UK radio station descended on the Balearic Island. Pete Tong delivered his seminal Essential Selection from the custom built studio above the famous sunset bar and there have been regular life-changing live performances ever since! You only have to cast your memory back to summer 2017 and the goosebump-moment that Annie Mac invited the House Gospel choir on stage to perform Dennis Ferrer’s ‘Hey Hey’.

Over the years Mambo Ibiza has consistently surprised us with fantastic events that deliver those much sought after Ibiza moments; the collaboration with BBC Radio 1 has seen a huge stage erected on the promenade, facing towards the bar, creating a spectacular theatre, with the world famous Ibiza sunset as the backdrop. The events are free and ticketless, so, if you want to be part of history this summer, you have to make sure you get there early. The capacity turn out last summer saw a giant singalong session, and one of the finest atmospheres of the summer. The BBC Radio 1 all stars will be back in full force with Pete Tong and Annie Mac leading the way, for what promises to be two days of fantastic music, vibrant atmosphere and more than a few surprises! See you at the waterfront.
