Charlie Hedges (GB)
Influencing a weekly audience of 5.6 million listeners as co-presenter on the Sony Award-winning Kiss FM breakfast show, Charlie Hedges’ insatiable thirst for music impressively takes in every hour of the waking day, through morning, noon and night. Aside from the breakfast show, Charlie hosts a specialist house music show on Saturday nights and a Friday night show on Kiss FM’s sister station, Kiss Fresh. Off-air, Charlie Hedges is better known as a world-class DJ, one who plays to thousands of discerning clubbers across the world at parties like Sundance Festival, alongside Carl Cox at Space and at Amsterdam’s Gashoulder – a set that was broadcast across the world to over 11.5 million listeners – and on home turf in the UK at iconic venues like Electric Brixton, the Ministry of Sound and Pacha, where she has a residency. Charlie’s also no stranger to the festival scene having played at some of the biggest festivals including Global Gathering, V Festival, Wireless and the Isle of White Festival. Billed on historic line-ups alongside Carl Cox, Chemical Brothers, Dimitri Vegas & Like Mike, Tom Starr, DJ EZ and Steve Aoki, Charlie Hedges has a finely tuned energy that has resulted in her being one of the most in-demand female DJs on the scene. Away from the decks, Charlie’s focus turns to the production studio where her signature house sound has been crafted and honed, with an arsenal of beats that are being readied for release in 2015. On top of all this, Charlie is an ambassador for The Prince’s Trust and undertakes charity work for Mencap and Help for Heroes.
