“1Xtra Live is our flagship night where we really get to let our hair down and showcase some of the cream of artists we love and support on the network. This year we head to Birmingham, a city we’ve always had an amazing relationship with, and we bring another incredible lineup with us, including French Montana, who’s gone from strength to strength since we last welcomed him as a surprise in 2017. His full set is going to go off. Aitch is undoubtedly next up when it comes to UK Rap and he’s going to kill it; Ms Banks has had a fierce year too and is brilliant live.” DJ Target had that to say about the upcoming show.
