From BBC - January 15, 2018

Fans who discovered Norwegian pop star Sigrid when she won the BBC Music Sound of 2018 last week are getting their first chance to see her play in the UK.

The 21-year-old will play an intimate, ticketed set for Radio 1 at the BBC's Maida Vale studios on 30 January.

She will be joined by other Sound of 2018 acts including Pale Waves, Not3s, Yxng Bane and runner-up Rex Orange County.

Sound of 2015 winners Years & Years will also play the event, marking their comeback after a year in the studio.

DJ Annie Mac will broadcast the show, dubbed BBC Music Sound of 2018 Live, on BBC Radio 1.

She called it "one of the first opportunities to see and hear some of the most exciting new artists in 2018".

Fans can register for tickets from now until Thursday, 18 January.

Sigrid won the Sound of 2018 last week, after receiving votes from more than 170 music industry insiders, including DJs, critics, festival bookers and fellow musicians.

She looks set to enter the UK Top 10 for the first time this week, with her single Strangers climbing to number eight in Monday's Official Chart Update.
