The first acts have been announced for a special Across The Line broadcast from BBC Blackstaff Studios on Monday 21st May with short, sharp live sets from And So I Watch You From Afar, Cherym and Kitt Philippa (previously known as Katharine Philippa).
Information on how to apply for tickets for the intimate floor show – plus the final three acts on the bill – will be announced on next week’s Across The Line.
The broadcast is part of the Biggest Weekend Fringe – an ambitious 10-day outreach programme in the lead up to the Biggest Weekend. The Fringe will include live broadcasts, musical performances, industry insight, workshops and Q&As with BBC Radio DJs and influential figures, with full details to be released soon.
New, live and emerging music will also be celebrated with further BBC and independently run events, with this element of the Biggest Weekend Fringe open to any UK music venue, promoter or organiser to get involved with - details here.
In addition, on Saturday 21st April the BBC is hosting an employability event for young people, providing digital, creative and employability skills, and an opportunity to apply for several work experience placements at the Biggest Weekend festival site. The event for 16-24 year olds is open for registration now and will run in The Oh Yeah Centre, Belfast.
