The free music events, which are being organised by agency Mission in partnership with Nokia, will tour a number of UK locations every four to six weeks until July and will feature the music industry’s emerging talent.

Artists will perform acoustic sets in non-traditional venues to give music fans the opportunity to see their favourite bands and singers in unique venues.

The first 2014 Nokia Lumia Live Session took place at Dingles Fairground Museum in Devon on 29 March with British singer and songwriter Ella Eyre. She recently collaborated with Rudimental on Waiting All Night, which won a Brit Award for Best British Single.

Eyre performed a live acoustic set to fans and competition winners, and the session was documented by La Blogothèque, a team of videographers and bloggers which present new music through intimate videos.

Christophe Abric, founder of La Blogothèque, said: "The team is thrilled to partner up with Nokia again to explore the UK and discover the best new artists. We’re all set for another exciting year of the Lumia Live Sessions – exciting acts, crazy venues and lots of magic moments."

In March 2013 Mercury Music Prize-nominated Ghostpoet hosted the first Nokia Lumia Live Session at the Anglican Chapel in Arnos Grove Cemetery, Bristol.
