BBC Radio 1Xtra Live: #BigUpBournemouth

The audience was a frenzy under the strobe lights, and the music reverberated endlessly. BBC Radio 1Xtra came to "Big Up Bournemouth", and they did not disappoint. Monday's talent included Katy B, Chase And Status, Digital Soundboy and many more, including a spectacular set from Sub Focus to close the night.

I admit I don't often attend concerts (the previous big gig I attended was Professor Green, on a blizzardous day in March), but 1Xtra Live has shown to me what I have been missing. Although the hype did not match the thunder of 20,000 screaming girls, the energy of a live performance is indeed potent - that which I hope I have captured in my photographs from the evening. I did not need an alcoholic beverage to become infected with the same vigour as the girls dancing on their seats in front of me.
