BBC CWR takeover - Saturday 6 and Sunday 7 July

BBC CWR is proud to host the ‘Cov stage’ on Saturday and Sunday daytime at this year’s Godiva Festival, highlighting our local music scene. All of the artists have featured on our BBC Music Introducing programme, many of whom we have championed over the years, and some have only been on our radar for a year or so. The line-up has a fantastic mix of artists and styles, and we feel it shows just some of the talent that Coventry and Warwickshire has to offer.
