BBC Radio 1Xtra has revealed a new sub-brand, as it looks to take the strength of its name on the road for a series of club-nights.
Dubbed 1Xtra Levels, the events will feature acts inspired by the station, shining a light on the British music scene as well as celebrating the influence of US music across the genres.
For the next 12 months 1Xtra Levels will be taking up residency in London, Birmingham, Manchester and Leicester, as well as heading out on tour to other towns and cities around the UK.
In celebration, the station will host an official launch night in London on 23rd August. Taking place at London’s O2 Islington Academy, the night will be hosted by 1Xtra DJ Snoochie Shy, with a range of DJs taking to the decks, including Nadia Jae and Kenny Allstar. Room 2 will be hosted by Dancehall legend Seani B with support from Sir DJ Corey and as-yet-unannounced special guests.
Tickets go onsale this coming Friday, 26th July direct from Ticketmaster (here). A fuller reveal of the clubnights is expected to land imminently.
