BBC Radio 1’s Annie Mac is to front a rolling Channel 4 show titled ‘Superstar DJs’, in which she’ll meet with and interview, well… them. Confirming the news yesterday, Mac said she’d been pitching the idea since 2012, and had at last got the financial backing to go ahead with it.

Airing in six weeks time, the first ‘Superstar DJ’ in the strobe-light will be Tiesto, to whom she claimed to have had “unrivaled access”, with specials featuring Diplo, David Guetta, Disclosure, Fat Boy Slim and Seth Troxler following on.

In an interview with Pete Tong at this week’s International Music Summit, printed by Music Week, Mac said (making a fair point): “The world of big DJ’s is still quite elusive and weird – Tiesto is one of the richest most famous DJs in the world and yet no one really knows anything about him”.

On the show itself she added: “It’ll give you real access to the lives of these DJs and what they have to go through to get that success. It was important to get a really good variety of DJs, I’m really happy with the variety and I hope people like it”.
