In the spring of 2008 MAGIC organised multi-wavelength (MWL) observations of the blazar 1ES 1011+496. 1ES 1011+496 is a high-frequency peaked BL Lac object discovered at VHE γ-rays by MAGIC in spring 2007 during an optical outburst reported by the Tuorla Blazar Monitoring Programme. MAGIC re-observed the source during the 2008 MWL campaign which also included the Metsähovi, KVA, Swift and AGILE telescopes. This was the first MWL campaign on this source that also included VHE coverage. MAGIC observed 1ES 1011+496 from March 4th to May 24th 2008 for a total of 27.9 hours, of which 20 h remained after quality cuts. The observations resulted in a detection of the source at ∼7 σ significance level with a mean flux and spectral index similar to those during the discovery. Here we will present the results of the MAGIC observations of the source in combination with contemporaneous observations at other wavelengths (radio, optical, X-rays, high energy γ-rays) and discuss their implications on the modelling of the spectral energy distribution.
