6 Music DJ Lauren Laverne said: “The 6 Music Live line up represents the incredible range of music played on BBC Radio 6 Music every day – from the newer, emerging talents to more established and legendary names who’ve shaped the music we hear today.”

Station controller Bob Shennan added: “This year, 6 Music Live is bigger than ever before, taking place across two whole days with the performances at Maida Vale being filmed for BBC Red Button and the 6 Music website. Live music is at the heart of what we do with over 300 sessions each year on the station, more of which are now being filmed for our audience to view across the BBC’s digital platforms.”
