BBC Radio 1 partners once again with Hideout Festival for a special Friday night broadcast as part of Radio 1’s summer festival coverage. Transmitting live from Europe’s leading electronic music festival, Hideout, BBC Radio 1 will bring four hours of live music from the stations very own Danny Howard and B.Traits plus sets from Dusky, Solardo, Skream and Eats Everything straight from Zrce Beach, Croatia on Friday 30th June, 7pm – 11pm.

With Croatia now a globally recognised destination for dance music, Hideout Festival is at the forefront of the scene. Now in its seventh year, Hideout Festival continues to demonstrate its versatility and draw for major and up coming artists alike across the electronic music spectrum. Over 100 artists will descend on Hideout Festival this year playing across five days and nights in Zrce Beach’s open air clubs and on the infamous Hideout boat parties. Major Lazer Soundsystem, Diplo, Jamie Jones, Marco Carola, Stormzy, The Martinez Brothers, Hannah Wants, Hot Since 82 and many more are billed for the 2017 instalment.
Gatekeeper of BBC Radio 1’s Friday night dance programme and Saturday’s dance anthems, Danny Howard returns to Hideout to kick off the live broadcast with fellow dance family member, Friday night DJ and broadcaster B.Traits. London duo Dusky and 2016’s fastest risers Solardo are set to play alongside crowd favourite Skream. Edible boss and all round good guy Eats Everything will serve up the final set which promises to be an epic finale to the live broadcast.
Mark Newton, Director, Hideout Festival comments “We’re really excited that Radio 1 are coming back to Croatia with us this year. Last year’s programme was a huge success, and this year we are stepping things up by broadcasting live from the final night of the festival with some of the leading tastemakers in electronic music. This is Hideout Festival’s seventh year and our biggest programme yet, and this partnership is key in delivering quality, forward thinking music to our customers and the listeners back in the UK and worldwide.”
