My current role as Producer of the Music Team at BBC Radio 6 Music sees me chairing the weekly playlist meeting and looking after the programming of our daytime music for the likes of Lauren Laverne, Mary Anne Hobbs and Steve Lamacq. Since 2013 I’ve also booked the line-up for the network’s biggest live event, the annual 6 Music Festival. So far I’ve put together bills in Manchester, Bristol, Liverpool and in 2020 the Festival came to London with three nights at Camden’s Roundhouse.
Over the years the line ups have welcomed headliners such as The National, Brittany Howard, Kae Tempest, Jon Hopkins, Robert Glasper and Laura Marling whilst supporting newer talent such as Sports Team, Kokoroko and GAIKA. In 2018 I booked the line up for 6 Music’s biggest outdoor event at Titanic Belfast which included performances from the likes of Underworld, Beck, Young Fathers and Phoebe Bridgers. Current projects include 6 Music’s end of year Albums Of The Year event and planning for 6Music Festival 2021. My time at the BBC has also included working in the Music Team at Radio 1 and before that in TV at UKTV as Scheduling Assistant.
