Pressbox (Press Release) -
Worldpop have been commissioned by ITV to produce three hours worth of television programming centred on Ibiza 2001. The shows will be split down into three programmes, which will piece together to theme a late night Ibiza event to be broadcast on August 31st, entitled ‘ITV IBIZA NIGHT 2001’.
Sister Bliss, from leading dance outfit Faithless, will be presenting the television event, which includes the following programmes: ‘Blissed Out’ where Sister Bliss takes us on a tour of her Ibiza – including best restaurants, hotels, clubs and beaches. She also hunts out the few quiet spots left on the island that accommodates 1 million brits every summer. ‘Top Ten Ibiza Videos’ where Worldpop pulls together all the artists who have turned to Ibiza for inspiration to create some of the most memorable pop and dance videos of the past decade. Featured videos include Wham!, David Morales, Mel C and Chicane. Finally, ‘Ibiza Memories’ where stars and fans alike talk about their favourite Ibiza holidays. The show features an exclusive interview with Fatboy Slim and Zoe Ball on when they first met on the island, as well as leading DJ’s Danny Rampling and Pete Tong.
Ben Turner, Editorial Director of Worldpop, spoke of the commission, "We're delighted to be putting together an evening which will finally portray Ibiza as the beautiful clubbing paradise that it really is. This night will be anything but IBIZA UNCOVERED, and will lay to rest the perception that this island is nothing but an island full of mindless Brits in football shirts."
Worldpop have also launched the legendary Mobile Ibiza, including the innovative text message based promotion 'Seven Nights In One Week' where registered holidaymakers have the chance to enter leading clubs for free, every night of the week. It also supplies exclusive up-front news, surprise DJ appearances, secret parties and the hottest inside information from the editorial team based on the island for the entire summer. The Worldpop.com/ibiza microsite contains info on flights, accommodation, clubs, ringtones and interviews with all the stars, as well as webcasting the infamous Ibizan sunset every evening.
