Croatia Rocks Festival 2015 – Zane Lowe – Papaya Club, Zrce-Pag, Croatia
IBIZA ROCKS IS COMING TO CROATIA! Papaya club continues to make big partnerships with the top european brands. This time we are taking the music and entertainment of Zrce Beach to an even bigger level by bringing one of the most popular nightlife brands of the magical island of Ibiza. This is a festival first for Rocks and will take place on Croatia’s most famous party beach, Zrce, from Monday 20th – Thursday 23rd July 2015 at clubs Papaya and Aquarius. By having the balls to push the boundaries, Ibiza Rocks broke the mould in 2005 by bringing live bands to Ibiza, challenging the status quo and changing the musical landscape of the island forever. Against all the odds Ibiza suddenly had its most exciting new offering in decades and a new generation of like minded music lovers and bands looking on Ibiza in a whole new light. Ten years on and Ibiza Rocks is the leading live music promoter in Ibiza and the No.1 youth holiday operator with hotels, a travel company, bars, diners, retail stores, a massive live music and event programme across multiple venues. http://www.ibizarocks.com/history/ Join us at our first CROATIA ROCKS FESTIVAL ; 4 days & nights of live music, DJs, beach parties, boat parties and dancing under the stars. 1st LINE UP ANNOUNCEMENT: LIVE: Clean Bandit Jungle Kate Tempest Kwabs Shura Black Honey Anushka Black Honey The Bulletproof Bomb MORE MUSIC FROM: B.Traits Blonde Doorly DJ Luck & MC Neat Eton Messy DJs Friend Within Hannah Wants Jaymo & Andy George Karma Kid Lxury Mak & Pasteman Monki Toyboy & Robin Tom Shorterz Shy FX Soul Clap Waze & Odyssey DJs: Rudimental Zane Lowe Wilkinson SPECIAL GUEST: Fatboy Slim PLUS MANY MORE TO BE ANNOUNCED!

But never Zed. Before I was a radio DJ I was in a hip hop group for about 6 / 7 years. We were called Urban Disturbance! Making music is what I got into first and foremost. The media thing was always just a hobby. But now it’s a well paid hobby! Right now I’m a member of Breaks Co-op (with Andy Lovegrove and Hamish Clark), we’ve released two albums in New Zealand – Roofers (1997) and The Sound Inside (2005). Full biography: Before working for the BBC, I worked for many years at London ‘s XFM. I’ve been on Radio 1 since June 2003. I also present Gonzo on MTV 2. The whole fun of doing a radio show is ultimately it’s really spontaneous and really live and you don’t have to think about it too much. But I’d like to think that what we’re doing is just getting behind the music. Making the most of the two hours that we have on the radio and just trying to employ a community spirit and bring everybody in on it. I think it’s much better when everybody’s involved. It is true that everyone who works on the show has got a really broad taste in music, myself included. I think that that’s a plus y’know, I wouldn’t wanna work necessarily in a genre specific show – just a hip hop show or just an alternative rock show, whatever ‘cos it doesn’t really represent what I’m into and I really think that radio really has to be an honest representation of whoever’s driving it as much as whoever’s listening to it. I have a great time when I’m on-air, I think this is an amazing show. But please don’t just take my word for it – tune in and tell me what you think, it’s a two way process!
