With a 100% pure UK line up of fifteen of the most popular artists which have performed for the Channel over the past year plus a guest DJ set from some of the best DJs in the country, the event will be more than just big. It will be massive!

Since the channels launch in 2003, Channel U has rapidly become synonymous with the raw cutting edge of the UK urban music scene. The plaudits have rained down from industry aficionados and artists alike with the likes of Mercury Music prize winner Dizzee Rascal publicly acknowledging the major contribution the channel has made to kick starting his career and Guy Moot (Head of UK and European publishing for EMI) recognizing the platform we have provided for new UK talent to break through.
