About BBC Radio 6 Music

Listen online to the internet radio of BBC Radio 6 Music live, which is the most popular radio station among the digitally distributed radios in the UK. Nearly every lover of alternative and indie music can find something they enjoy in the station's musical repertoire. The station primarily curates its music from the past 40 years up to the present day, occasionally reaching back to the 60s and 70s as well. While alternative and indie genres take center stage, you'll also hear a mix of pop, rock, trip-hop, electronica, dance, indie pop, and iconic rock. Additionally, the station broadcasts live concerts. BBC Radio 6 Music annually airs the 6 Music Festival, which is BBC's official music festival in the United Kingdom. The morning programme on BBC 6 Music doesn't use the commonly used "Breakfast" term in its name, but it maintains the expected lively and dynamic atmosphere. On weekdays from 7:30am to 10:30am, Lauren Laverne hosts the morning segment with diverse content, including music news, discussions, and occasional exploration of scientific and poetic topics with various guests.

BBC Radio 6 Music slogan: "The Best Music Beyond the Mainstream"
