Missing live music? So, you decide to go to YouTube and watch some of your favourite artists live performances - we’ve all been there! BBC Radio 1 has a dope selection of musical guests and the best part is the exquisite covers.

Now, I’ve probably already lost your attention as you're scrolling nervously up and down this list to see if your personal favorite artist has been mentioned. Chances are they probably haven’t, I apologize.
