BBC Introducing stage

Brand new talent

BBC Introducing was once again represented at Reading and Leeds, with a stage at the heart of the festival sites dedicated to the best in emerging talent. For the third year running, we showcased talented new bands and musicians from around the UK (plus one wildcard from Norway!), with headline performances from acts who've gone on to bigger things since gracing the stage in previous years.

Most of the acts bagged themselves a slot after being recommended by their local BBC Introducing radio show, often as a result of uploading their music to us. Others were chosen in collaboration with Leeds venue The Cockpit and organisers Festival Republic.

Reckon you've got what it takes to play at Reading next year? Upload your music to us now.
