🎶 The @BBC6Music festival is back! Your headliners are…Young Fathers, Gossip and The Smile!
The festival will once again feature performances you won’t see anywhere else, new music debuts, unique collaborations and surprise guests… 👀
— BBC Press Office (@bbcpress) January 16, 2024
During an on-air interview with Lauren Laverne today (January 16), The Smile said: “ARRGGGH – we’ve got a lot of work to do to prep for the 6 Music Festival as it’s one thing to do it in the studio, but it’s another thing to do it live. We’ve decided to work with the London Contemporary Orchestra on the performance but as they’re all incredibly versatile musicians, we’ll figure it out!”
Young Fathers added: “A 6 Music stage has been given to us and the door of endless possibilities has been opened. Beyond anything else it will be a night to celebrate a wide mix of folk coming together. GERONIMO!!”
Gossip, who will be performing new tracks at the event, said: “We’re so excited – Manchester is going to be the first to hear our new record live! Such a special crowd, we’ve missed you so much and can’t wait to be back!”
“It’s fantastic to see the BBC Radio 6 Music Festival returning to Greater Manchester this year,” Andy Burham, the Mayor for Greater Manchester, said. “We’re immensely proud of our musical heritage, but also the phenomenal depth of talent and the exciting independent scene across our city-region right now. As BBC Radio 6 Music has always supported new and alternative artists, it’s a perfect fit for the festival to have its permanent home here for years to come.
“There’s so much new Greater Manchester music out there right now that deserves to be heard, which is why it’s so important to develop platforms for emerging artists. That’s precisely what we’ve been celebrating with the Mayor’s Artist of the Month on BBC Radio Manchester, and like BBC Radio 6 Music, we want to help those acts get on and reach new audiences.”
