Listeners to DJ Target's 100% Homegrown show on BBC Radio 1Xtra and Ally McCrae's BBC Radio 1 show will have heard the line-up for the BBC Introducing stage at Radio 1's Hackney Weekend announced last night (June 10th).

BBC Introducing have been working with local supporters of new music (Rising Tide, Urban Development, Land of Kings Festival, Bigga Fish and Eat Your Own Ears) to give the musical talent of East London a once-in-a-lifetime experience of playing on the BBC Introducing stage at the biggest musical event in BBC Radio 1’s history.

With more acts to be announced, the line-up is already looking really strong with the likes of Random Impulse, Savages, Arthur Beatrice and Lil Simz all set to conquer Hackney Marshes.

You can see the full line-up on the Hackney Weekend website and read the full press release on the BBC Media Centre's site. Over the weekend, we'll be bringing you highlights of every set along with photos and updates covering all of the action.
