Spotify Presents: Who We Be Live 2019


Spotify today announced that its award-winning show, Who We Be Live, will return for a fourth time and head to O2 Victoria Warehouse, Manchester for another unmissable event. The show on 22nd November follows the landmark success of Spotify’s third sold-out instalment of Who We Be Live last year. The 2018 Alexandra Palace show saw unmissable performances from AJ Tracey, French Montana, Raye, NSG and more.

Celebrating the very best in Rap, Grime, Afrobeat and R&B from the UK and beyond, the not-to-be-missed event will head to the north for the very first time. The move will bring incredible musical talent from across the UK to fans, and champion one of Manchester’s most exciting new talents. Confirmed for the line up so far are: Aitch and Tion Wayne who together boast more than 303million combined UK streams  – with more exciting acts to be announced.

Who We Be is curated by Spotify’s in-house urban music team, led by Safiya Lambie-Knight, and is one of Spotify’s most listened-to playlists in the U.K., with over half a million followers.

Safiya Lambie-Knight, Artist and Label Marketing Lead, Urban at Spotify, said: “We’re really excited to bring Who We Be Live to Manchester for the very first time and with an incredible line up. The UK has some of the most exciting artists in the rap, grime, afrobeat and R&B genres at the moment and we’re set to bring some of the very best performers to the stage this November.”
