Following its launch in 2020, the acclaimed BMW Play Next podcast returned for 2022, with many of the artists appearing on the podcast, also performing on the Play Next stage over the weekend at the All Points East Festival in Victoria Park, London.
Hosted again by TV and Radio broadcaster Edith Bowman, the podcast featured pioneering artistry and ground-breaking music; “I’ve been overwhelmed by the positive feedback. Especially right now when it’s tougher than ever for new talent to breakthrough. I am hugely excited for the return of the BMW Play Next podcast which really gets under the skin of the issues facing the industry and offers a platform for emerging talent."
With the help of some fantastic artists, the podcast also investigated various personal experiences of breaking into the music industry, top tips for new acts, and how they go about discovering music that excites them.
