Last night, BBC Four broadcast a documentary about the BBC Introducing stage at Glastonbury 2010. Titled Hello Glastonbury!, the programme charts three bands' experience of performing at the festival for the first time, following Da Mighty Elementz (D.M.E.), Celt Islam and Lettie as they prepare for their slot on our stage and finding out what the opportunity and exposure means to them.

Here's a clip from the documentary:

Watch Hello Glastonbury! in full on BBC iPlayer (available until Tuesday 7th September)

The documentary was part of an evening of programmes devoted to the 40th anniversary of Glastonbury festival. It features appearances from Corinne Bailey Rae, Mumford and Sons, Plan B and Laura Marling, plus glimpses of the main stage headline performances from Gorillaz and Muse.

Hello Glastonbury! was the work of first-time director Rachel Davies, and we think she did a fantastic job of capturing the vibe at the world's biggest and best festival.

I feel the film I have made captures the personal journeys of each of the artists as well as the excitement of such a massive event. It also highlights the important work that BBC Introducing does for new artists.

Do have a watch if you've ever wondered how it feels to perform at Glasto and what goes on backstage to make it all happen. We've already seen some nice feedback about the show on Twitter:
