Spotify’s ‘Who We Be’ live show is set to return for its fourth instalment, this time heading to the O2 Victoria Warehouse in Manchester on November 22nd.

Celebrating the very best in rap, grime and R&B from the UK and beyond, the line-up boasts the very best homegrown talent as well as importing some of the freshest sounds from overseas.

New additions to the event include the unapologetically charismatic Doja Cat. Now averaging nearly half a million monthly listeners on Spotify, the LA-born artist has asserted her authority in the music world through an array of  hit releases, and most recently her ‘Hot Pink’ album. Read our interview with the effervescent rapper.

Other new names added include the increasingly influential Octavian, whose pioneering new sound mines the edges of R&B, grime, dancehall and house to create a one-of-a-kind experience. Manchester based rapper Zeph will be repping his home town, while Aystar and DJ Ellie Prohan are also set to perform.

The new additions for the night join Aitch and Tion Wayne, two artists making huge waves in the UK right now – and with Aitch performing in his local city, the energy levels are set to hit the roof.
