Interview: BBC Radio 1’s Pete Tong - Ibiza 2007

Mon 18.06.2007

Check out what’s on the cards for Pete Tong this summer as DJsounds’ Lorna Cole catches up with the illustrious leader of the pack at the sublime Cafe Mambo, on Ibiza’s celebrated sunset strip. We also track down the dancefloor king at Pacha, where his Pure Pacha opening party kicked started the summer in fine style to a full house. Hooking up with Pete at Cafe Mambo before he took to the decks to deliver his influential Essential Selection show live on Radio 1, Lorna talks to Pete about broadcasting in Ibiza, his Balearic summer, and why he chose the classic playing cards/casino theme for his 5th season of Pure Pacha.

Pete will present parties at Mambo and Pacha throughout the summer, joined weekly at Pure Pacha by Jade Jagger's Jezebel party and monthly by Sander Kleinenberg with his This Is… party concept. Radio 1’s mammoth Ibiza Weekend, meanwhile, will return for its 12th year on the White Isle from 10th – 12th August. So look out for some sizzling broadcasts from Radio 1 DJs Judge Jules, Dave Pearce, Zane Lowe, Annie Mac, Eddie Halliwell, Vernon Kay and, of course, more from Don Pete Tong.
