A bit more about 1Xtra Live 2012

1Xtra Live is back and is better than ever! We’re hitting the road again and taking the show on tour to four different venues in four different UK cities…Starting with London, Brixton on the 12th November, before swiftly moving on to Manchester on the 13th, then our travels take us to Liverpool on the 14th, before the final night brings us to Birmingham on the 15th November!

The History

1Xtra Live started in 2008 with a fantastic event in Coventry with Jay Sean, Akon and a little known artist called Kelly Rowland!

The following year, we travelled up north to Sheffield with Dizzee Rascal and JLS - before 2010’s massive extravaganza at Wembley Arena with Tinie Tempah, Taio Cruz and loads more.

Then in 2011 things cranked up to a new level when we took the show out on the road visiting 4 UK cities with a line-up that boasted Jessie J, Miss Dynamite, Wretch 32, Nero, and Labrinth to name a few.
