The BBC Introducing tent at Radio 1's Big Weekend

Festival season is nearly upon us again and we are very excited to have announced some of the acts that will be performing on the BBC Introducing stage at Radio 1's Big Weekend in Carlisle this year! It's going to be HUGE!

As you know, the BBC Introducing stages are an opportunity for us to give some of the very best new acts that have uploaded their music at bbc.co.uk/introducing the chance to play at some of the biggest festivals in the UK, and Radio 1's Big weekend is always a favourite as it kicks things off every summer.

Not only do the artists get the experience of playing at such a huge festival, but we film and record their performances so those of you that can't be at the festivals still get the opportunity to check out some of the hottest new talent, and of course it helps the artists (hopefully) find some new fans...

This year on the stage, we have decided to reflect some of the artists that have featured - or will be featured - on the Radio 1 playlist in the BBC Introducing slot. It is Radio 1's Big Weekend after all, so it made sense to us to bring some of the artists that Radio 1 listeners have heard and enjoyed to Radio 1's biggest event of the year! So acts like MOPP, Yaaks, Luke Bingham and many more will get their chance to shine in Carlisle.

We will also be reflecting some of the best local talent from Cumbria and its surrounding areas, working with our BBC Introducing colleagues in Cumbria, Newcastle and Lancashire.

We will be announcing the artists we've selected, along with the fringe gigs that will take place the week before the main event in Carlisle, in our BBC Introducing in the Nations shows on Sunday 17 April. So make sure you tune in to hear Jen, Ally and Rory reveal the rest of the line-up.
