This year’s BBC Electric Proms will feature headline performances from Dizzee Rascal and Doves.

The October series of shows kicks off with London rapper Rascal performing with a live band and a 16-piece orchestra at the Camden Roundhouse venue on October 21.

The following night sees Manchester rock band Doves play with London’s Bulgarian Choir, and American soul artists Smokey Robinson completes the initial announcements, performing at the venue on October 24.

A new initiative called BBC’s New Music Shorts will invite filmmakers to submit ideas to accompany performances by Metronomy and Florence and the Machine.

Tickets for the shows go on sale at 8am tomorrow morning (Wednesday 16 September).
