The BMW Play Next stage is back at All Points East for the second year in a row. Bigger than ever the stage will play host to new and emerging talent including Nippa, Attawalpa and Sipho as well as established acts such as MRLEY, Mr. Scruff and Moa Moa. An amazing 23 artists will feature on the stage at the festival which is supported with BMW’s acclaimed Play Next podcast.

Running over the two weekends of All Points East (Friday the 19th – Sunday the 28th August 2022), the stage is hosted by radio legend, Edith Bowman who has also partnered with BMW to create the BMW Play Next discovery podcast.

At a time when it’s tougher than ever for new talent to breakthrough, BMW and Edith have been backing up-and-coming artists, and taking them on a journey to the stage, with a package of support including festival performances, podcast interviews, and vehicles.

The fortnightly episodes, follow key players from the music world – and this year including Glastonbury co-organiser Emily Eavis, alternative rock outfit Wolf Alice, British songstress Nao, British-Peruvian musician Attawalpa and Everything Everything frontman Jonathan Higgs – explore topics facing the industry, alongside emerging artists, who had the chance to play full-length tracks, as Edith selected five songs released each week to play in full on the podcast.

Three artists from the Podcast are being given the spotlight to play the BMW Play Next stage at All Points East. This year BMW is giving the stage to emerging artists Nippa, Attawalpa and Sipho providing a platform for their incredible talents.

TV and Radio broadcaster Edith Bowman, host of the BMW Play Next podcast series and BMW Play Next stage says, “I’ve been overwhelmed by the positive feedback. Especially right now when it’s tougher than ever for new talent to breakthrough. After the past couple of years things don’t just return to normal overnight and that’s why it’s so important, we support new artists. I am hugely excited for the return of the BMW Play Next podcast which gives me the opportunity to have thoroughly insightful and important conversations with artists while offering a wonderful platform for emerging talent.

I can’t wait for the return of the BMW Play Next stage at All Points East, as we continue to support the next generation of future festival headliners. With the festival now running across two weekends, it means even more opportunity to shine a spotlight on the industry’s fast rising talent and help them on their journey.”

Reflecting the innovative spirit and shared passion for creativity, the collaboration between BMW and All Points East sees a diverse selection of artists on stage. Furthermore, BMW will be supporting the festival and its sustainability strategy with a fleet of all-electric BMW iX cars to transport artists and VIPs.

CO2 emission information.

The values for fuel consumption, CO2 emissions and energy consumption shown were determined in a standardised test cycle according to the European Regulation (EC) 715/2007 in the version currently applicable. The figures refer to a vehicle with basic configuration in Germany and the range shown considers transmission (automatic or manual) and the different wheels and tyres available on the selected model and may vary during the configuration.

The values of the vehicles labelled with (*), are already based on the test cycle according to the new WLTP regulation and are translated back into NEDC-equivalent values in order to allow a comparison between vehicles. More information on the transition from NEDC to WLTP test procedures can be found here.

These figures are intended for comparison purposes and may not be representative of what a user achieves under usual driving conditions. For plug-in hybrid vehicles and battery electric vehicles the figures have been obtained using a combination of battery power and petrol fuel after the battery had been fully charged. Plug-in hybrid vehicles and battery electric vehicles require mains electricity for charging. The CO2 emissions labels are determined according to Directive 1999/94/EC and the Passenger Car (Fuel consumption and CO2 Emissions Information) Regulations 2001, as amended. They are based on the fuel consumption, CO2 values and energy consumptions according to the NEDC cycle.

A guide on fuel economy and CO2 emissions which contains data for all new passenger car models is available at any point of sale free of charge. For further information you can also visit this link.
