Greg James to host Glasgow mini-festival

BBC Radio 1’s Greg James will be hosting his own mini-festival at BBC Pacific Quay in Glasgow called ‘G in the Park’.
From Monday 7th – Thursday 10th July, a mini-festival site will be constructed inside the BBC Pacific Quay building, where Greg will broadcast his weekday Radio 1 show in front of a live audience and on the Red Button. Throughout the week, his show will feature interviews and live sessions with artists and musicians, plus a daily G in the Park headline act performing on the ‘main stage’.
As an alternative to last year’s Sofa Surfing, where Greg stayed on listeners sofas in Scotland in the lead-up to T in the Park, he will be camping overnight on the festival site in Pacific Quay and listeners can apply for the chance to camp with him. Two listeners a night will be able to join him on the make-shift site which includes tents, portable toilets and a campfire.
In addition, in order to earn his keep whilst staying in Pacific Quay, Greg will have to undergo a number of tasks and challenges which could include anything from cleaning the windows to manning the reception phone.
Greg James, said: “After two years of Sofa Surfing, where I stayed with a different listener each night in the lead-up to T in the Park, I’ve come up with another ridiculous idea – let’s see if it works.”
