6 Music Festival 2020

The BBC has announced that the 2020 edition of its 6 Music Festival will take place in Camden. Do they still have music in Camden? I guess they will between 6-8 Mar, when this whole shebang is due to take place. There’ll be spoken word, poetry, Q&A sessions and DJ sets too. Larks!

“I’m delighted that 6 Music is coming to Camden in March next year – it’s an area with so many musical stories to tell”, says Head Of 6 Music Paul Rodgers. “I hope you’ll join us there for our annual celebration of the best alternative music – or tune in to the live broadcasts across BBC 6 Music, BBC Sounds, BBC Four and BBC iPlayer”.

Previously the event has taken place in Manchester, Tyneside, Bristol, Glasgow and Liverpool. Clearly the Beeb reckons it’s built up enough of a buffer to finally hold it in London. Although not enough to actually mention directly that it’s in London.

Anyway, tickets will go on sale on 24 Jan, with the line-up announced three days earlier on Lauren Laverne’s 6 Music breakfast show.
