On an island where current musical culture is as significant as historical heritage, when it comes to the field of radio, Ibiza produces the cream of the crop. Case in question? Broadcast experts Ibiza Sonica…
Founded in 2006 by DJ Igor Marijuan and event organizer/marketing manager Miguel Valverde with the desire to create a non-commercial radio station delivering a slice of Ibiza’s amazing musical landscape to the world, Ibiza Sonica experienced a swift rise to the top of its game.
Based in the village of San Rafael – with incredible hilltop sunset views – Ibiza Sonica is much more than your average local radio station, housing a record label – with six albums available – recording studio, touring agency, events broadcast service and managing 9 on-line radio stations like Pioneer DJ Radio, Pura Sonica, Sonica Day, Sonica Night, Blue Marlin Ibiza Radio, Es Vive radio or Art Web Radio.
The internet has played a fundamental role in Ibiza Sonica’s worldwide success beaming their programming schedule across the globe simultaneously with the FM broadcast on the island reaching more that 6.000.000 listeners a month. Boasting line-ups to rival any super club, it’s no surprise thousands of listeners tune in for their daily Ibiza Sonica fix.
Ibiza Sonica won "Best International Radio" award at The International Radio festival 2012.
Easing you into the day with lounge sessions, leading into afternoon Balearic beats followed by Club Ibiza nights, resident DJs Igor Marijuan, Andy Wilson, Karlos Sense, Paola Testa and Valentin Huedo have their fingers on the pulse (and needles on the records) of Ibiza’s thriving music scene.
Specialist programmes featuring the crème de la crème of international talent – including Nightmares on Wax, Giles Peterson, Jose Padilla, Ralph Lawson, Josh Wink and John Digweed – air daily along with live shows from locations across Ibiza and Worldwide.
From sunsets at Savannah, Café Mambo or Kumharas to club extravaganzas like boat partys at Bermuda or We Love at Space… or exclusive mixes live and direct from the kitchen of Carl Cox’s villa (yes really!) to special events such as the International Music Summit, SONAR, The BPM FESTIVAL, International Radio Festival, Sonica brings the best of Ibiza to the box.
