Your Guide To BBC Radio 1's Live Lounge Month: Schedule, Performances, and More!

It's a big month for BBC Radio 1's legendary Live Lounge. The special show and venue space is celebrating its 50th anniversary with a huge month full of awesome performances. For almost every day this month, an artist will be performing a special show for Radio 1, brining both eclectic versions of their own songs (sometimes being stripped down) and the ceremonial cover song every artist loves to pull out during these shows.

It may be hard to figure out what bands are playing when and what the bands that did play early did. Here's your guide to BBC Radio 1's Live Lounge Month, with a full schedule, performance footage, and more. Check back every day for updates on what your favorite artists performed at the Live Lounge! Keep an eye on our Twitter, Facebook page, and Instagram for updates as soon as they come.
