Nottingham-based musicians and DJs will take centre-stage at Trent Bridge during this summer’s inaugural edition of The Hundred.

Jerub, an artist championed by the BBC Music Introducing platform in Nottingham, will perform at the venue on Monday 26 July, when Trent Rockets and Northern Superchargers will play out a men’s and women’s double-header.

DJ Charlie Burley, meanwhile, will be embedded into the Trent Rockets team, curating a unique soundtrack reflective of the city and the people, players and artists within it.

Venue DJs are in full control of the sound of their team, from walk-out music to reaction sounds.

“As a huge fan of both music and live sport, it's incredibly exciting to be a part of The Hundred,” he said.

“After the year we've all had, it's going to be amazing to see thousands of fans out watching some of the world's best cricketers, listening to some of the hottest new tunes and enjoying what promises to be a summer to remember.

“Being Nottingham born and bred makes it all the sweeter to represent my local team. Bring it on!”

Music artists have had the majority of their planned performances cancelled in the past year and The Hundred poses a new opportunity for them to get back out in front of their fans this summer. Thanks to broadcast partnerships with BBC and Sky, performances will be enjoyed by fans at home as well as those in the grounds.

Elsewhere, The Hundred Rising has provided a programme of opportunities for 100 people across England and Wales to get involved in producing the competition.

The opportunities included the chance for a budding local presenter to co-host at Trent Bridge alongside seasoned pros throughout the summer. Nottingham’s Rising Host will be selected ahead of competition launch and will join radio presenter Jasmine Takhar on stage throughout the competition.


Tickets for The Hundred fixtures at Trent Bridge are on general sale now.
