Having revolutionised the industry for live streaming and event coverage over the past few months, and having produced exclusive content with Stormzy and Central Cee at the latter stage of last year – Amazon Music have this week announced +44 Live With Jae5 & Friends.

By livestreaming the in-person event, taking place at King’s Cross venue Lafayette, Amazon Music will connect JAE5 with even more fans.  JAE5 is one of the most prolific producers in the UK having made hit records with J Hus, Burna Boy, Dave, Koffee, Skepta, NSG and more. This live performance is hugely anticipated and tickets to the event are now sold out. +44 Live is a brand-new live music event from Amazon Music’s flagship Black music playlist brand, +44, that exists as a space to celebrate and amplify Black music genres, the artists that make the music, as well as the culture behind it.

Talking about +44 Live, Laura Lukanz, Amazon Music’s Head of Music Industry, UK, Australia & New Zealand said; “It’s a natural evolution to extend the +44 brand with a series of live performances from the artists who are championed every single day on the service.  Having one of the most talented and prolific producers, JAE5, with a host of artists is the perfect line up for this event. +44 is making artist to fan connections everywhere you look, whether that’s the +44 stage at Notting Hill Carnival, an intimate masterclass with Stormzy or a fan meet and greet and livestream with Central Cee. +44 Live with JAE5 & Friends will be a memorable night for any fan of Black music in the UK and I am excited to build +44 Live into a staple event in the music calendar.”
