Soul legend Smokey Robinson will perform at the BBC's five-day Electric Proms festival in London next month, along with U.K. indie-rock act Doves and rapper Dizzee Rascal. The event runs Oct. 20-24.

Now in its fourth year, the festival returns to the Roundhouse in Camden, north London, although there is no Liverpool leg for the festival after the dual city event in 2008.

Performances will be broadcast live on BBC radio with highlights on terrestrial TV channel BBC Two. All performances will be available online and there will be additional sets available to Freeview, satellite and cable customers via their red button interactive service.

The Electric Proms is "dedicated to creating new moments in music" such as one-off performances and collaborations.

Smokey Robinson will be joined on the main Roundhouse stage by the BBC Concert Orchestra on Oct. 24.

"It's an honor and a privilege to return to the U.K. and perform at the BBC Electric Proms," said Smokey Robinson in a statement. "The show is definitely going to be something I will be proud to present to all of my beautiful fans who have supported me throughout my career."

Doves will be working with choral arranger Avshalom Caspi to interpret their tracks for a performance with the 40-strong London Bulgarian Choir on Oct. 22.

Dizzee Rascal will be backed by a live band and a 16-piece string section from the Heritage Orchestra on Oct. 21. Tickets go on sale Sept. 16 and more acts will be announced in coming weeks.

"The BBC Electric Proms will once again create exciting new moments in music with a range of international and homegrown acts all developing their performances specifically for BBC audiences," said festival director Lorna Clarke in a statement.

The BBC Electric Proms has re-commissioned the BBC New Music Shorts for 2009. Film makers were invited to submit ideas for short films inspired by tracks from Metronomy and Florence and the Machine earlier this year. The successful commissions will be premiered alongside performances from both bands in the Studio Theatre with Metronomy and Florence and the Machine appearing on Oct. 22.

The BBC is the promoter for the event and Metropolis Music are production partners.

Previous performances at the Electric Proms include Paul McCartney, Burt Bacharach, Oasis and the Who.
