The Outside crew took ourselves up to Leeds last week to check out the First Direct Arena, the venue for this year’s MOBO Awards. Taking place on November 4, we’re looking forward to a plethora of knockout performances by some of the country’s top acts. We’ve already announced FKA Twigs, Ella Eyre, Rita Ora and Naughty Boy, with many more to come- but that’s not bad for starters even though we say so ourselves. Before the event in Leeds, we’re also getting ready for the first ever pre-MOBO Awards. Held at London’s Under The Bridge in lovely Chelsea, it honours the R+B/Soul, Gospel and Jazz acts, with exciting talent present on the night and some extra special performances, A brand new annual date for everyone’s calendar!
