Dates confirmed for second year of Electric Proms

The BBC has confirmed the dates for the second year of the BBC Electric Proms.


Following the successful inaugural festival, the 2007 event will take place from 24 to 28 October.


On Tuesday 6 March Festival Director Lorna Clarke will hold a briefing session for key members of the music industry.


At the presentation she will outline her vision for the second year and will challenge industry bosses to develop the theme of creating new moments in music and collaborations amongst new and established acts.


The second year of the Electric Proms will once again be based at the Roundhouse in Camden, London.


In addition, a number of other Camden venues including Koko, Electric Ballroom, Jazz Café and Barfly will also host performances.


Outside the capital, the regional element of the festival - Next Stage - will also continue in 2007.


Lorna Clarke said: "Now that we have got the first year under our belt it will be easier for me to talk to the industry as they will have a real sense of what the Electric Proms are trying to achieve.


"I want to challenge them to help me make this year's festival even more creative and innovative.


"The meeting next week is also vital as it gives me a chance to hear their feedback about what they thought worked well and what needs to be developed."


Although broadcast details have yet to be confirmed it is expected that the event will once again make use of the BBC's multi-platform access points meaning music fans will be able to enjoy the event on television, radio, online and via the red button for digital viewers.
