Between 7-10pm, acts including Simian Mobile Disco, Mumford and Sons, The XX, Enter Shikari and Marina and the Diamonds will perform 3 live tracks apiece. Ending the night will be DJ sets from Kissy Sell Out and Toddla T, mxing special sets and bringing the festive good cheer.
“We’re bringing a whole host of my favourite bands from 2009; one’s who’ve shaped the year in music and my show over the past few months. The XX have broken through the hype and made my favourite album of the year so I’m thrilled to have them on the bill. Simian Mobile Disco returned this year with an album full of plinky plonky brilliance so we had to have them. Enter Shikari, probably the most loved band by my listeners, will tear it up as is Plan B who will be playing new stuff for the first time on the night. Mumford and Sons are really going to bring the festive vibes of the night and Marina and the Diamonds the glamour and a taster of a break through album of 2010. It’s such an honour to be broadcasting from Maida Vale and I can’t wait to bring this festive special to everyone.” (Nick Grimshaw, BBC Radio 1)
Last year’s event featured performances from Glasvegas, Florence and The Machine and Friendly Fires.
