Exit 7 – TV Show
Exit 7 was our third music-based television programme hailing from the infamous Exit 7 venue in the Motorpoint Arena, right in the heart of Cardiff. With acts ranging from rap to folk to rock, there was something new and exciting for everyone.
The show was Broadcast on Made in Cardiff and the broader Made TV franchise from 20th November 2015 for 6 weeks in the prime time 9 pm slot on a Friday. The show was another local hit and just as popualr with musicians, the audience and Made TV alike.Visit Site
We were approached by Made In Cardiff TV, after the successes of our previous shows, about a potential opportunity of working with the Cardiff International Arena / Motorpoint Arena Cardiff. There was an obvious opportunity to combine the young vibrant music televsion content we were producing with such a great local venue.
With our interest piqued once again, we set about combining the best elements into our next show. The arena, opened in September 1993 by singer Shirley Bassey, has hosted some of the biggest names, including Westlife, Kylie Minogue, One Direction, Jessie J, Anastacia, JLS, Jason Derulo and Mariah Carey. The Exit 7 is a bar above one of the exits of the arena that had just opened and the arena were keen to promote. It was an awesome opportunity for young musicians to perform in this great venue.
We again joined up with our three fantastic presenters, singer-songwriter Jon Lilygreen (a previous Eurovision Song Contest representative for Cyprus), Bongo Peet (a popular figure from Newport who performs with Jon) and Sian King (a professional young presenter with Made in Cardiff TV at the time, who was hosting other content daily with the channel).
And we signed up numerous acts to perform, some old favourites returned and some amazing new talent came and belted out some great numbers.
After extensive filming, we premiered our fourth tv show on Made In Cardiff TV after a tremendous year.
