Next month, we're hosting a couple of events which might be up your street (quite literally, if you live in Manchester or Cardiff).

United Nations in Cardiff - 7 October 2010

Radio 1's Bethan Elfyn


Firstly, we're glad to announce the third gig in our United Nations series on Radio 1. Having previously visited Belfast in November 2009 and Glasgow in April of this year, we'll be coming to Cardiff in October!

Radio 1's United Nations gigs are about getting together are celebrating the very best in new music from Wales, England, Scotland and Northern Ireland.

Each of BBC Introducing's champions on Radio 1 gets to choose an act.  So that's Huw Stephens for England, Rory McConnell for Northern Ireland, Vic Galloway for Scotland, and on home turf this time around, Bethan Elfyn for Wales.

This time around, there's a vaguely electro feel to the night, as the four acts the DJs have chosen are:

We're particularly excited about catching up with Kobi and the Not Squares boys again - both are alumni of the BBC Introducing stage, having performed at Glastonbury and Reading & Leeds respectively last year.

The gig will take place at Clwb Ifor Bach (Welsh Club!) on Thursday 7th October, and you can APPLY FOR FREE TICKETS NOW!

If you don't manage to bag yourself a ticket, commiserations. But panic ye not! We'll be broadcasting all the highlights on Radio 1 in early November.

In The City - 13 October 2010

Our second event in October will be part of Manchester's awesome three-day industry conference and live music festival, In The City.

Tom Robinson
and BBC Introducing in Manchester will be hosting a showcase night on at Band On The Wall on Wednesday 13 October.

We're extremely pleased to announce the following line-up:

I attended last year's In The City (you can read my round-up, with band reviews from BBC Manchester's Chris Long, right here). It's a brilliant event to go to, whether you're a fan of stumbling between venues to discover upwards of 10 bleeding edge new acts in one evening, or a band that wants to find out more about the industry (or, to be honest, just stand in the hotel foyer handing out demos to record label execs and A&R people). You can find out about tickets on the In The City site.

If you do plan to go, make sure you swing by our showcase at Band On The Wall on Swan Street and come over to say hello!
