Editor of BBC Music Introducing
Tonight on BBC Radio 1, Mistajam and Huw Stephens revealed the line-up for the BBC Music Introducing stage at Radio 1’s Big Weekend 2017, which this year takes place in this year’s City of Culture – Hull!
Over the years we have seen so much exciting, new talent grace the Introducing stage at Radio 1’s Big Weekend who have gone on to become the next superstars of the future – and we have no doubt this year will be no different.
This year we’re very proud to be hosting some of the finest new, local talent from Humberside on our stage. Alan Raw and the BBC Music Introducing in Humberside team have handpicked the hottest new acts emerging out of Hull, including The Hubbards, Lumer, Jack Conman, C.O AKA Chiedu Oraka and ‘returning act’ LIFE.
All the artists on our line-up first shared their music with us via the BBC Music Introducing Uploader, which has led each of them to receive their first ever radio play on one of our 38 BBC Music Introducing local shows around the UK. For this particular opportunity; each of the local shows have submitted acts from their area to be considered by a panel of top music curators, including Radio 1 producers, presenters and music team members, which has resulted in this incredible line-up:
SATURDAY 27TH MAY
The Modern Strangers
C.O AKA Chiedu Oraka
SUNDAY 28TH MAY
Brand New Friend
*The Big Moon*
*= returning act
Radio 1's Big Weekend takes place at Burton Constable Hall in Hull on the 27th & 28th May 2017.
