Rae Morris brings an infectious enthusiasm to Reading's BBC Radio 1 tent

Check out some photos of Rae's set at 2018's Reading Festival.

Treating the BBC Radio 1 tent to her vibrant songwriting chops, Rae Morris never fails to bring heaps of enthusiasm, and it's infectious. While the song that set her en route to becoming a household name, ‘Someone Loves You’, may anchor itself upon a base of melancholy, the rest of what Rae has to offer falls neatly under eternal-optimism and eyeing up the brighter side of life. 

The BBC Radio 1 tent, with its dark and atmospheric lighting, offers the perfect refuge for Rae’s emotive counsel. The early afternoon crowd soon succumb to every chord and whim Rae constructs, with flittering, dancing beats bringing out a life in the set that the more subdued numbers struggle with. The perfect soundtrack for those looking for something a bit more mellow to kick-start their weekend
