Pete Tong & incredible orchestra host first ever Ibiza Prom


Over the past 20 years Pete Tong has been at the helm of BBC Radio 1. One of the most iconic and historical significant radio stations for the entire electronic genre. Celebrating 20 years, Radio 1 set up camp in Ibiza for a weekend, bringing in some of the best British talent on the scene. From Rudimental, to Disclosure to Jamie Jones to Calvin Harris, it truly was a spectacle in itself.

However the piecede-resistance of the celebrations was arguably the Ibiza Prom. While the BBC’s legendary Proms are well established, they have never delved into Pete Tong’s electronic scene. Until now.

The very special concert brought together Pete Tong and Jules Buckley and his Heritage Orchestra, combining forces to provide one of the most distinctive nights at the world-famous Royal Albert Hall. Being one of the best and most respected in the business, Buckley and his orchestra definitely didn’t cease to amaze the thousands who watched and listened live.

The 90 minute set of dance classic’s included tracks from the likes of Eric Prydz, Rudimental, Fatboy Slim, Daft Punk, Faithless. And with Pete Tong at the helm once again, it culminated in one of the most nostalgic and uplifting sets you’ll likely ever hear. See the track-list below.

Put aside 90 minutes and watch the video below. You won’t regret it.
