BBC Radio 1’s Future Festival will return in 2015, with a night of live performances from some of 2015’s rising stars hotly tipped for big things in the New Year.

Taking place at the BBC’s legendary Maida Vale Studios on Tuesday 13th January, Radio 1’s Zane Lowe will introduce performances from an eclectic line-up of artists including James Bay who was discovered through BBC Introducing, Years & Years, Shura, Coasts, Stormzy and Jack Garratt.

The event will be broadcast live on Zane’s Radio 1 show from 7-10pm, and listeners will be able to watch all of the performances on the Radio 1 channel of BBC iPlayer.

From 10pm - 1am, Huw Stephens will present a post party show with Radio 1 DJs and some of the performers popping in as guests.

The 2014 Future Festival also came live from the Maida Vales Studios and included performances from several breakthrough acts from the year including Sam Smith, Royal Blood and George Ezra who all had subsequent No.1 records, as well as Gorgon City with MNEK, Sampha, Catfish & The Bottlemen and Jhene Aiko.

Talking about the event Zane Lowe said: “The 2015 Future Festival line-up is another diverse and exciting reflection of the year to come in new music. Whether you’re listening at home, or at Maida Vale watching it all happen - it’s going to be an amazing night of live music.”

George Ergatoudis, Head of Music for Radio 1 and 1Xtra, says: “Radio 1's Future Festival is one of the year's most exciting live events with performances from some of the artists that we think are destined for success in the New Year. Zane and his team always bag an impressive line-up and this year's no different. I can't wait!”
