The event, to be held at Leeds First Direct Arena, will see performances from the likes of Lethal Bizzle, Tinie Tempah and Flo Rida, who could all potentially record a track in the #YourMove recording booth.

The booth, which is completely black apart from red and white writing scrawled across its sides, invites members of the public to 'step up to the mic'.  

It comes complete with recording equipment, giving those who step into the booth the chance to record their own track, with a selection of the best performances aired on BBC Radio’s 1Xtra station.

Similar in shape and size to a traditional telephone booth, the pop-up music studio has already visited Leeds Trinity, where the likes of Maverick Sabre, Lady Leshurr, Twin B and Yasmin and Protoje stepped inside.

Those who missed out on tickets to the sold-out event can catch the live stream of the show from 6.30pm. 

Earlier this week (13 October) cider brand Bulmers hosted a music event in London, where Lethal Bizzle also performed.
