Annie Mac and Huw Stephens host live gig

Annie Mac and Huw Stephens have hosted this year’s BBC Radio 1’s Future Festival – a live gig showcasing new artists.

The three hour show took place last night (Tuesday) at the Maida Vale studios from 7pm till 10pm with the line-up including Billie Marten, Loyle Carner, Mura Masa, Nao, Pretty Vicious, Rationale, Section Boyz and VANT.

Last year’s show saw the likes of Years & Years, James Bay, Stormzy and Jack Garratt take to the stage and enjoy success in the past 12 months.

Annie Mac says: “Future Festival has always been one of my favourite Radio 1 events. It’s a big deal for us to be able to showcase these artists at the very start of their career and give them a platform to do their thing live on the radio. As a listener, you are always guaranteed to hear something brand new and exciting, and the magical atmosphere of Maida Vale always makes it sound really special.”

Billie Marten says: “Couldn’t be happier to be performing at Future Fest, all thanks to Annie and Huw, so grateful.”

Nao said: “Thank you Radio 1 for inviting me to play Future Festival. To perform at Maida Vale is a dream.”
