In-house DJs and live music to feature during Hundred matches


Collaboration with BBC will showcase new talent during new competition

The Hundred will provide venues for the return of live music in the UK this summer, with the unveiling of in-house DJs for each of the eight teams in the competition.

The ECB’s new competition will see “sport and entertainment collide on a scale never seen before”, tournament organisers said, following a collaboration with BBC Music Introducing, a platform that supports unsigned, undiscovered, and under-the-radar UK talent.

Acts including The Orielles, Jerub, Lady Sanity, Oscar Welsh, Coach Party and Rachel K Collier will be performing during the competition, with more to be unveiled in due course, while a local DJ will also be embedded into each of the eight teams, each “curating a unique soundtrack, reflective of their city and the people, players and artists within it”.
