30 Live Lounges in 30 days for BBC Radio 1

BBC Radio 1’s Clara Amfo and Alice Levine today announced plans for the return of Radio 1’s Live Lounge month.

The feature will see 30 Live Lounge performances across 30 consecutive days this September, from both emerging British artists and big international acts. The station first carried out the idea last year.

The month of Live Lounges include special performances by Muse and Florence and the Machine.

The weekday Live Lounge sessions will be hosted by Clara Amfo (Monday-Friday, 10am-1pm), whilst Alice Levine will host the weekend Live Lounges during her 1-4pm Radio 1 show. Videos will be available to watch on Radio 1’s BBC iPlayer and YouTube channels.

Clara Amfo said: “Since starting this slot on Radio 1, The Live Lounge month is something that I’ve been looking forward to. There’s a really strong mix of artists coming in throughout September and I can’t wait to enjoy their performances alongside the listeners.”

George Ergatoudis, Head of Music, Radio 1 and 1Xtra says: “I’m incredibly excited about this year’s Live Lounge Month line-up. It’s basically an incredible festival line-up spread over 30 days with the potential for some truly extraordinary performances. I can’t wait!”
