As part of our partnership with Virgin Radio, Ocean Colour Scene is recording a live session to be played in segments throughout next week. A different track from their session will be played out every day starting from Monday 24th July.

This session is the second in a series of Beyond The Tracks related content, created by our partners Virgin Radio; the first was a live session with Carl Barat + The Jackals on 7th June. Carl Barat (of The Libertines fame) will be performing with his band The Jackals on the Saturday of BTT Festival, along with Ocean Colour scene who are headlining.

As part of this week of Ocean Colour Scene exclusive live tracks, Virgin Radio will be giving away 2 free tickets to the Saturday of the festival every day so you can see them live for yourself! That's a lot of lucky ticket winners! 

Tune in with Tim Cocker from 7pm Monday - Thursday to hear the exclusive live tracks and find out how you can win tickets to see the band at Beyond The Tracks. Edith Bowman at Breakfast will also have a pair of tickets to give away every day next week so tune in from 6am!

Ocean Colour Scene's headline performance will round off what will be a Brummie-filled, indie-fueled celebration of great local talent.

Be sure to check out the phenomenal talent featured on the Friday and Sunday of the festival as well. Friday will be a full on opening party with iconic dance anthems, Neo psychedelic ravers and headline performances from electronic music legends Leftfield and Orbital. Sunday will be another indie/rock feast featuring rock swagger, shoegaze and the best in emerging Birmingham talent, culminating in the final headline BTT performance by multi-million selling, alt-rock, electronically tinged Editors!

Further Virgin Radio content will be announced in the coming weeks.
