Laura Marling and Gruff Rhys are among the artists on the bill of a concert to celebrate BBC 6Music’s 10th birthday.

The concert takes place across three venues at London’s Southbank Centre on Friday March 16, with Marling, along with Lianne La Havas, in the Purcell Room, while Rhys, Anna Calvi, Beth Jeana Houghton And The Hooves Of Destiny in Queen Elizabeth Hall.

The Front Room at the Queen Elizabeth Hall, meanwhile, will host live, non-ticketed, entertainment.

The concerts are part of a week-long celebration which will also see morning presenter Lauren Laverne broadcast from the BBC’s Maida Vale studios with sessions from Spiritualized and Orbital, among others.

Lauren Laverne said: “I love being part of the Radio 6 Music family and its success, it’s special radio. We’ll be featuring some of the station’s best music and artists during the anniversary and I’m especially looking forward to Maida Vale, where I’ll be bringing listeners some amazing live sessions.”

Bob Shennan, Controller, BBC Radio 2 and Radio 6 Music, added: “This has been an incredible first decade for Radio 6 Music. In addition to its recent record listening figures, it has proved itself as a unique and much loved service and a real showcase for the music that encapsulates the alternative spirit. I am proud that it has played such a key role in encouraging the take-up of digital radio across the nation.”
