BBC Radio 1Xtra’s annual flagship event 1Xtra Live is taking place in Liverpool this year, on Saturday 8th October.
1Xtra Live is held in a different location each year, with a line-up of urban music. In 2015, the likes of Tinie Tempah, Miguel, Stormzy and Natalie La Rose performed in Leeds.
Now in its ninth year, 1Xtra Live will bring acts to Echo Arena Liverpool for the station’s biggest night of the year.
A.Dot, BBC Radio 1Xtra DJ says: “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 says: “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.”
The station is expected to announce further details soon.
