BBC Radio 1Xtra Live heading to Liverpool

The BBC Radio 1Xtra Live event heads to Liverpool’s Echo Arena this year, taking place on Saturday, October 8.

The annual show, now in its ninth year, aims to shine a spotlight on the most exciting talent on the ‘urban’ music scene.

Last year’s outing, which was held in Leeds, featured performances from the likes of Tinie Tempah, Miguel, Stormzy and Natalie La Rose.

Commenting on this year’s show, A.Dot (pictured), BBC Radio 1Xtra DJ, said: “This year has been a big year for urban music and with a crowd like Liverpool 1Xtra Live is set to be one of the biggest nights of the year.”

Ben Cooper, controller, Radio 1 and 1Xtra, added: “The energy and excitement of ten thousand fans, the hottest UK artists and the biggest international acts, will make 1Xtra Live one of the best gigs of the year. We know there is a massive appetite for new music in Liverpool so we knew we had to bring our biggest event to the city.”

Further information on this year’s line-up and ticketing will be announced on 1Xtra in the coming months.
