He will be performing alongside the likes of Stormzy, Damian Marley, Desiigner, Giggs, Lady Leshurr, Sean Paul and Wretch 32 for the station’s annual flagship event at Liverpool Echo Arena.
Not only will he be performing on the night, but as a part of the 1Xtra sessions - a range of distinctive and bespoke outreach sessions in Liverpool ahead of 1Xtra Live - he will take part in a very special ‘In conversation with Craig David’ Q&A session, hosted by 1Xtra DJ Ace on Wednesday 5 October.
Craig David says: “I can’t wait to perform at 1Xtra Live on 8 October. This is something I’ve always wanted to be a part of and I’m so happy I’m getting the chance to do it this year, as well as being able meet young, enthusiastic musicians and share what I’ve learnt as a part of the 1Xtra sessions."
The event - which is now open to all ages - promises to be bigger and better with a brand new set up including two stages and a standing audience.
Twin B and Yasmin Evans will be covering all of the live build-up from 4-7pm on 1Xtra, with MistaJam and DJ Target taking over from 7-8pm on Radio 1 and 1Xtra, followed by the live show from 8-11pm, hosted by 1Xtra DJs including A.Dot and Charlie Sloth. The show will also be live streamed on 1Xtra’s website (bbc.co.uk/1xtra) and Radio 1’s BBC iPlayer channel and highlights will be available on YouTube and via BBC iPlayer.
