Jamal Edwards: “It’s a honour to launch NE1’s Newcastle Music Week to find talent from the city. Exciting times!”

Festival-lovers were in for a double treat this weekend as online media mogul Jamal Edwards launched the first Newcastle Music Week.

He then gave an inspiring talk at NE1’s Space 2 in Newgate Shopping Centre about his rise to the top before enjoying a bit of leisure time, being spotted that evening at Metro Radio Arena for the sell-out gig of Ed Sheeran, whose career he helped launch, then at Tup Tup Palace.
