BBC Proms 2016
This year, the BBC have managed a full season listing on their website.

My long-list will definitely need to be whittled down.

I'm not sure why there's a Bruckner theme this year; it's not a special anniversary.

Other things about the season I find interesting: it's good to see a range of venues. As well as the Albert Hall and the Cadogan Hall, there are concerts at Greenwich, the Sam Wanamaker Playhouse, The Roundhouse (allergy advice: contains Harrison Birtwistle), and Peckham.

I might be interested in The "Strictly" Prom if I knew what was actually going to be played (say, Piazzolla), but I think there's enough in the season to give it a miss. Other things that are for one reason or another not quite my thing but may be useful to point out include Berlioz's Romeo and Juliet, Duke Bluebeard's Castle, Bach's B minor Mass, and The Dude - just too much Ravel in there for me, though I'm sure it will be a very popular concert.
