The MOBO Awards, now in their 18th year, are to runa one-day event at Glasgow’s Barras Art and Design Centre. ‘Celebrate MOBO’, which will take place on Friday, 18 October (10am – 6pm) ties in with the live screening of the ceremony from the new SSE Hydro.
The organisers are looking for Scottish artists, DJs, bands and solo performers from all genres to showcase at the event, which will highlight urban culture and music influence in Scotland. The day will also include a networking element and a panel featuring speakers from OpenEar (Auntie Flo) and goNorth, among others.
