BBC Radio Humberside is to host a fantastic night of live music featuring local bands at the Hull Venue, which will be the first ticketed event to take place at the new stadium.
The night will be hosted by BBC Radio Humberside presenters Alan Raw, the station’s BBC Introducing presenter; and David Burns.
BBC Music Introducing on Radio Humberside will feature four local acts: La Bete Blooms, rapper Chiedu Oraka, Bud Sugar and indie band The Hubbards will be the headline act for the evening.
Over 400,000 visitors have experienced events here at the venue since 2018 including Bob Dylan, Catfish & The Bottlemen, Ne-Yo, Paloma Faith, JLS, Sarah Millican, Blondie, Noel Gallagher and many more. The venue is a state-of-the-art music and events complex with a capacity of up to 4,000 people for concerts and live events, plus an array of bars, lounges, premium seating and hospitality suits including the Connexin Lounge. The venue is purpose built to offer significant flexibility for any conference, exhibition, dinner or event. With 1320 square metres of floor space, making it one of the biggest in the region, the Arena’s flexibility means we can host events of all shapes and sizes – from huge award ceremonies to smaller breakout meetings, including the University of Hull’s graduation ceremonies. The building is owned by Hull City Council and is managed by ASM Global.
