BBC Radio 1 to play non-stop independent labels

On American Independence Day, BBC Radio 1 will play 10 hours of music solely from independent record labels.

It’ll take place from 6pm till 4am, including interviews with artists and label representatives throughout.

At 9pm, Huw Stephens will host a 60 minute musical tour of the most influential independent record labels of all time.

Huw says: “Independent labels are a vital part of what we play on BBC Radio 1. They release incredible music, take risks on artists and nurture and support some artists who might not be given that support early on. Their success stories are huge, and we’re super excited to highlight our constant support of the great work the independent labels do.”

Chris Price, Head of Music, Radio 1 and 1Xtra says: “The UK’s independent label community is one of the most vibrant in the world. We want to celebrate the part it plays in making Britain one of the most creative and respected music hubs on the planet.”

It all starts at 6pm today, Monday 4th July 2016.
