Introducing online producer

Today is a good day. We can now announce the line-up for the BBC Introducing Stage at Reading & Leeds Festival which takes place from August 24th-26th 2012.

Celebrating its fifth year at the festival, the stage has previously seen debut performances from Pulled Apart By Horses (who will make their Main Stage debut this year), Two Door Cinema Club (NME/Radio 1 Stage second headliner 2012) and Don Broco, who move onto the Festival Republic Stage this year after their amazing performance in 2011 on the BBC Introducing Stage.

The bands that play are chosen through a combination of the BBC's countrywide Introducing shows, Leeds promoters Futuresound, festival promoters Festival Republic and Martin House's Centre Stage competition.
