Notes to Editors
Launched in London in June 2004, ILUVLIVE is a live event success story. With few live showcases open to home grown music, ILUVLIVE has helped numerous performers present their artistry with a full live band to music industry virtuosos, journalists and fans alike. Since its launch ILUVLIVE has showcased the likes of Jessie J, Ed Sheeran, Taio Cruz, Chipmunk, Tinchy Stryder, Katy B, Ndubz, Roll Deep, Ms Dynamite, Eliza Doolittle, Plan B and Tinie Tempah. Kano curated his own event in celebration of EP release 'Not for the A-list', alongside producer Mikey J for the first ILUVLIVE of 2012 in January.
