« on: 12:26:23, 15/02/23 »


The BBC Radio 6 Music Festival is to permanently move to Greater Manchester, the broadcaster has revealed.

The BBC said the area, which hosted the debut festival in 2014, would be its "permanent home" in the future.

Samantha Moy, head of BBC Radio 6 Music, said the station would "be rooted in Salford over time".

The 2023 event will be held across three days in March and see headline sets from Arlo Parks, Christine and the Queens, Loyle Carner.

The festival debuted in Manchester in 2014 and has since been held in Bristol, Cardiff, Glasgow, Liverpool, London and Newcastle-upon-Tyne.

The 2023 event will take place between 24 and 26 March at Victoria Warehouse in Trafford and Manchester's Band on the Wall.

It will see global premieres from Arlo Parks and Christine and the Queens and a collaboration between Loyle Carner and Manchester's AMC Gospel Choir, as well as live sets from Wu-Lu, Lava La Rue and The Big Moon.

There will also be DJ sets from Afrodeutsche, Erol Alkan, Don Letts, Good Future, Hot Chip, Steve Lamacq, Tim Burgess and Yard Act.
