What is BBC Music Introducing Day?

On Wednesday 4th October 2017 BBC Music Introducing turns 10 years old! To celebrate this milestone, for 24 hours we are putting unsigned, undiscovered and under-the-radar music firmly in the spotlight.

Expect to hear a whole host of Introducing features and tracks played across the BBC’s local and national radio networks, as well as special videos and exclusives on the Introducing Day site. And if that wasn’t enough, our day-long celebrations culminate in BBC Music Introducing Live – a special 10th anniversary gig at O2 Academy Brixton.

“Ten years of supporting new talent across the BBC! We love nurturing new talent, with every show and every stage championing real musicians making music. It’s a constant, all-encompassing support that brings music to the BBC audience and we’re all very proud!” - Huw Stephens, BBC Radio 1

Here's how you can get involved...


Throughout the day you'll be able to tune into your favourite local and national BBC radio networks and hear Introducing shoutouts.

In the evening, you can listen to the one-off Introducing gig at O2 Academy Brixton live on Radio 1, from 7pm to 11pm. You'll hear sets from: George Ezra, Everything Everything, Declan McKenna, Blossoms, Rae Morris, Slaves, NAO, The Big Moon, Yizzy, plus a special guest!

Don't forget you can listen online.

Keep your eyes peeled during the day for some special 10th birthday videos. You can keep up-to-date with it all on our BBC Music Introducing Day page, where you'll also be able to enjoy articles and other bits.

After the Brixton event this will also be the place where you can watch performances from all 10 artists.

From Friday 6th October you'll also be able to watch the show in full on the BBC iPlayer, available for 30 days.
