International Radio 1: Rob Da Bank in Croatia – BBC Radio 1 – 8th November 2010 – 21.00-22.00
Documentary series International Radio 1 returns to the station for the third time this autumn with five 60-minute brand-new programmes which follow BBC Radio 1 and BBC Radio 1Xtra DJs as they travel the world as international DJs exploring the musical and social backdrop of the countries they’re visiting.
In the second in the series, Radio 1’s Rob Da Bank dips his toe into one of Europe’s fastest growing dance music scenes: Croatia. Rob meets the DJs, promoters and artists hoping to transform Croatia’s image from war torn province to clubbing hotspot. Great weather and generous licensing laws make Croatia an attractive target for international promoters, but can it survive it’s own success?
Beginning at club Papaya on Zrce beach (which some people are calling the new Ibiza) Rob joins 4,000 open-air clubbers to hear techno legend Sven Vath. He visits the Garden Festival where promoter Nick Colgan is leading the charge for British organized festivals, and sets sails on the Argonaughty boat party hosted by Crazy P before playing a sunset DJ set. Contributors include Charlie 2na (Jurrassic 5), Norman Jay (Good Times sound system), Sven Vath, Marko from Gramophondzie, and Noah Ball – organizer of the biggest dubstep event to date, Outlook festival in Pula.
