The Dance Weekend takeover, spanning Radio 1, Radio 1 Dance, and Radio 1 Relax, will feature a range of mixes.

Saturday’s Radio 1 and 1Xtra Rave Up lineup will feature guest mixes from Wilkinson with MC Adapt, Emerald, Black Coffee, DJ EZ, Shadow Child, and an exclusive Essential Mix from Carl Cox. Sunday’s Chilled Dance is set to wrap up with Koreless, a Café Del Mar Mix from Ken Fan, and a Chill Mix from one of Dancing Astronaut‘s Artists to Watch in 2021, TSHA.
Fans can tune in to the Dance Weekend takeover through BBC Sounds and the BBC iPlayer Radio app.
