BBC Radio 1 has announced the three DJs that will be supported via the Annie Nightingale Presents Scholarship this year.
Nightingale launched the Scholarship initiative in 2021 with the aim of supporting talented women and non-binary people who are gaining traction in the electronic music scene across the world. They will all appear on a special edition of the 'Annie Nightingale Presents' radio show next month.
The DJ's supported this time include two Brits - Imogen and Jay Carder - plus American Rossy.
Says Nightingale: “It’s so exciting to be presenting the third Radio 1 Annie Nightingale Scholarship show for up-and-coming women and non-binary DJs. This year's winners … all possess great taste in music; versatility and dexterity on the decks and all convey their enthusiastic personalities on the mic. I wish them all great success and recognition".
Radio 1 chief Aled Haydn Jones adds: “The Annie Nightingale Scholarship is extremely important in uplifting and supporting new DJing talent. I can’t wait to celebrate the newest ones to watch, and look forward to hearing what they each bring to the show".
