Spotify have just announced that Who We Be Live will be returning for a fourth time and heading up to Manchester for the very first time.
2019’s show will be going down at the O2 Victoria Warehouse on 22nd November and will bring together the very best in Rap, Grime, Afrobeat and R&B from the UK and beyond.
Following last year’s sold-out London showcase, this year’s edition will champion one of Manchester’s most exciting new talents – Aitch – as well as bubbling London rapper Tion Wayne, with a host of artists set to be announced in due course.
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.
