The line-up for this year’s BBC Proms 120th anniversary concerts includes an event inspired by the Ibiza dance scene.
It will form part of a series of Late Night Prom collaborations with five of the BBC’s national radio stations, which will showcase a coming-together of musical genres.
DJ Pete Tong will celebrate 20 years of Radio 1 in Ibiza in a concert featuring Jules Buckley and the Heritage Orchestra, while Radio 1Xtra is to present a grime symphony with artists including Wretch 32 and Krept & Konan.
Jarvis Cocker leads a Radio 4 Prom based on his Wireless Nights series; 6 Music’s Mary Anne Hobbs presents a reimagining of classical music by Nils Frahm and A Winged Victory for the Sullen; and the Asian Network brings a new wave of Asian and Bollywood artists collaborating with the BBC Philharmonic.
“It’s very exciting to launch this season knowing that we are continuing the original vision of Sir Henry Wood and offering so much that is fresh and new 120 years on,” said BBC Proms 2015 director Edward Blakeman.
Opening at the Royal Albert Hall on Friday, July 17, the BBC Proms presents two months of artists, composers, orchestras and ensembles across 92 concerts, including four Last Night celebrations around the UK.
