Maia Beth is a presenter and DJ from Washington, Tyne and Wear.
Maia hosts Best New Pop Extra on BBC Sounds – and regularly covers for Mollie King on Radio 1’s Future Pop.
Maia also works for BBC Introducing, hosting their special events coverage (on stage, radio and socials) for festivals such as Glastonbury and Reading & Leeds and recently presented BBC iPlayer TV segments at Radio 1’s Big Weekend in Dundee.
Supporting new and diverse artists is her passion – she hosts BBC Introducing showcases in London and Manchester – and when she covered Clara on Radio 1’s Future Sounds she curated a show of female/non binary only artists as well as a ‘regional roadmap’ show – supporting musicians from all over the UK.
As a versatile DJ, Maia loves playing feel good house and techno but can also play commercial sets. She’s played everywhere from private member’s clubs to festival stages – wherever she goes she’s guaranteed to get the crowd dancing.
