Pete Tong’s Exclusive Performance at the Reserve (WIN VIP TICKETS!)


You’ll remember a few weeks ago, we announced that Pete Tong would be performing a rather exclusive set at The Reserve in Cape Town. This news got us even more excited than the hearing that the dance music legend would be playing a New Years Eve double header because it meant that we had the chance to get up close and personal, experiencing the goodness of the Pied Piper of dance in a more relaxed setting than the craziness of NYE.

Luckily for all of you, we’ve still got your back. We’ve been lucky enough to secure a set of VIP tickets to the 500 people max party taking place at The Reserve on the 4th of January 2013 with Pete Tong.

If you’d like to win the tickets- just let us know who did your favourite BBC Radio 1 Essential Mix of all time. Simple. We’ll announced the winners on the 3rd. Good luck!


  1. Paul oakenfold 2012*

  2. Oakeys Essential mix world tour still blows my mind but I would have to say his GOA mix from 1996 is what started my interest in EDM. Almost 20 years old and still sounds fresh!

  3. Above and Beyond from 2011! Still on my iPod

  4. Desyn Masiello. Listen to it and experience audio bliss!

  5. Mine would def be eddie halliwels essential mix of a few years back. Blew me away!

  6. Has to be when Pete took over the decks himself for his 20 years at Radio 1 celebration. He wound back the clock to his early days, playing his favourite tunes from the start of his career all the way in to 2012. Was pretty epic.

  7. The man himself; Pete Tong- Ibiza:-)))))

  8. Its got to be PvD, Paul van Dyk experience shines through and guarantees awesome mix each time.

  9. Calvin Harris at the Big Weekend in Carlisle.
