Charlie Hedges takes Ibiza

DJ and producer Charlie Hedges is the kinda girl you want in your squad; from partying in Ibiza to hosting her breakfast slot on Kiss FM, she knows everything there is to know about dance music.

We caught up with Charlie after her latest trip to the White Isle to find out the 411 on what went down.

Tell us about your trip... 

I played a gig at Eden; it was my first gig of the season on the island and I can't wait to go back already!  It was at Judge Jules’ Judgement Friday party, so we were hanging out with the likes of Jules, Son Of 8, Redondo, and also 99 Souls! Ibiza feels like my second home, I love going there each summer.

What was the highlight?

DJing, definitely. Ibiza is still one of my favourite places in the world to play. This time around, I was taking over the Snapchat account for Armada Deep to tie in with my first single being released -  it’s called Kaleidoscope so keep an eye out! It was fun snapping my day from waking up 4am Friday morning, travelling to Ibiza and finishing my set 5am Saturday morning. 

What are you Ibiza essentials?

Sunglasses... the rest, who cares?! The best times are those that are unplanned – just get there, soak up the atmosphere and then decide what nights or day parties you want to go to when you are there.

Favourite hangout?
I love Blue Marlin in the day; it's a private beach/bar which serves the most amazing sushi. I've had some amazing memories playing Space with Carl Cox and the opening parties there over the years. It's Space's final year, so if you get the chance you should definitely go and be part of the history of what was one of the best clubs in the world!

If you could go with anyone, who would be in your ultimate Ibiza squad?
Ooohh that's a great question, probably a massive DJ squad including a few of my favourites: Sander Van Doorn, Nervo, Michael Woods and Steve Aoki as he knows how to get a party started (plus he'll probably have a slice of cake on him!). And then some newer people on the scene like Tough Love and 99 Souls.
