Changes to the BBC Music website
The BBC Music website has changed
It continues to be the place to find the best music content from across the BBC, including coverage from festivals and events across all of the radio networks. But music audio and video content now have dedicated homes and functionality previously available here is no longer supported.
Video, including programmes and performance clips, can be found in the Music category on BBC iPlayer.
BBC News Entertainment & Arts is where you can find the latest music news.
BBC Music Introducing continues to be the home of unsigned, undiscovered and under-the-radar music from across the UK.
What is no longer available?
The following are no longer supported
- Artist pages (including the addition or updating of artist images and bios and artist track data)
- BBC Music Playlists are no longer be available, but you can continue to enjoy our regularly expanded and carefully-curated selections of music with our Music Mixes on BBC Sounds.
- ‘My Music’, ‘Find a Track’ and 'My Tracks' - including the ability to save tracks to a list and export them to third-party streaming services.
BBC Sounds: What happened to My Tracks
- We continue to offer tracklistings for radio programmes and music mixes. When available, these can be seen in BBC Sounds, where you can now save tracks directly to your favourite commercial music service

Where do the artist bios on our event pages come from?
Since hand-building a page for every artist to appear at a BBC event would be beyond our resources, we’re taking basic data around names, discographies and other key information from MusicBrainz, a website which offers discographical information on artists from Abba to Zappa (along with about 600,000 others). The information on the site is contributed, edited and maintained by an international community of users, in much in the same way as Wikipedia.
The artist biographies that appear on our event pages come from MusicBrainz via Wikipedia.
What if I find some content that's inaccurate?
Everybody is welcome to edit Wikipedia or MusicBrainz, and we encourage experts among our users to contribute in this way. To edit MusicBrainz you will need to go through a simple registration process.
