BBC Introducing showcase at Roundhouse Rising Festival

Editor of BBC Music Introducing

Huw Stephens on BBC Radio 1, announced that we have partnered with our friends at the Roundhouse in London to curate a showcase as part of the Roundhouse Rising Festival, which takes place from Saturday 11th to Sunday 19th February 2017.

Now in its seventh year, the festival celebrates some of the UK’s most exciting fresh talent with a number of live music performances, industry panels, workshops, demos and talks.

We are excited to announce that for next year’s festival, BBC Music Introducing have curated a night made up of some of the hottest new acts to upload their music to the platform including Isaiah Dreads, Tom Grennan, Sälen and VANT.

The showcase will take place on Monday 13th February in the Sackler Space of the Roundhouse hosted by Radio 1’s Huw Stephens. Tracks from each artist will be recorded for broadcast – so if you can’t make it, fear not! You’ll be able to listen again in Huw’s show later that week.

For the first time ever, Roundhouse Rising will also feature a headline show with BBC Music Introducing alumni Little Simz, which will take place in the Roundhouse's iconic Main Space.

For a chance to win tickets to BBC Introducing’s night at Roundhouse Rising, submit your details on the Roundhouse website to be entered into the ticket lottery. Winners will be notified 1 week before the event and will have 48 hours to claim their ticket.

Please note: Zuzu was originally confirmed for this line-up but is now unable to take part. Keep an eye out on this site for her BBC Music Introducing session recorded at the iconic Maida Vale studios. Coming soon!
