Sara Cox to host Audio and Radio Industry Awards
BBC radio presenter Sara Cox will host the upcoming ARIAs in Leeds, whilst Kaiser Chiefs and Gregory Porter are confirmed as entertainment.
The awards ceremony is taking place on October 19th at the First Direct Arena, and tickets go on sale today.
Sara: “I can’t wait to be part of such a fantastic evening of live music, celebrating the folks who help make radio the thriving, brilliantly eclectic and much-loved entertainment powerhouse it is today.”
An exclusive after-show party for Radio Academy members will be hosted at the venue with DJ sets from Radio X DJ and Inspiral Carpet member, Clint Boon and The Utah Saints.
The ceremony, which will seat guests theatre style, will be an inclusive event with tickets priced at £30 (plus VAT) for Radio Academy members, including pre and post show parties. Non-members can purchase tickets for £30 plus VAT for the awards ceremony only, whilst tickets to attend the ceremony, plus pre and post show parties will be available to purchase for £100 plus VAT.
Andrew Fryer from Leeds Beckett University, one of the sponsors of the night, said: “We are delighted to be supporting the ARIAS and excited to see that the Kaiser Chiefs will be performing, particularly since the band includes two of our own graduates back in their home city. The event will give our students across Music, Filmmaking, Broadcast Media, Journalism, PR and Events some fantastic opportunities to work on a large scale event in a range of roles and will no doubt help to inspire the radio industry talent of the future.”
