Media students Takeover BBC Radio 1Xtra

Vocational Media students had a great day networking and participating in workshops as part of the BBC Radio 1Xtra Industry Day at the Royal Northern College of Music in Manchester.

Industry professionals from the Manchester Urban Music scene came together to run workshops and deliver Question and Answer sessions. Students enjoyed workshops on radio promoting music, presenting, creating a radio playlist, music production and song writing.


The event was hosted by Yasmin Evans (Presenter of Radio1XTRA) with special guest Bugzy Malone, English songwriter and rap artist, in an inspirational Question and Answer session about his life, music and career.

The students also enjoyed performances from BBC introducing artists who are promoting and starting their own musical careers. The day was filled with behind the scenes secrets, music industry hints and tips on how the music industry really operates and careers behind the scenes. The students also learned how much work has gone on behind artists and their music.
