#IVWTake5 is a series of pre-recorded conversations between a host and guest from our community – artists, venues, promoters, gig goers, broadcasters etc. The person who has been the guest, then becomes the host for the next #IVWTake5 and selects the guest they’d like to speak to. 

#IVWTake5 will air every Monday at 5pm UK time on our website and YouTube channel.

Fans have 24 hours to submit questions via social media when we announce each pairing. 5 questions are then taken and asked towards the end of the recording. You can see who has participated in Take 5 on the images below. Click through to watch each one on the page, or go straight to our YouTube channel.
