1Xtra’s DJ Target says: “1Xtra Live is our flagship night where we really get to let our hair down and showcase some of the creams 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 line up with us.

“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.”
