The month will come to an end with a concert played by an unconfirmed special guest.

Last year, The 1975 closed Live Lounge Month with a show at Blackpool Tower with the BBC Philharmonic.

Clara Amfo, host of Radio 1’s Live Lounge, said: “This year’s Live Lounge Month has me more excited for our listeners than ever.

“From LA back to our studios in the UK, there is 50 great years of Radio 1 to celebrate with all of the artists and I can’t wait for it to kick off!”
