Last night, BBC Radio DJs announced that George Ezra, Blossoms, Nao, Slaves, The Big Moon and more TBA, will take to the stage for BBC Music Introducing Live – a special gig to celebrate the 10th anniversary of BBC Music Introducing, held at the O2 Academy Brixton on 4th October 2017.
BBC Radio 1 DJs Huw Stephens, Annie Mac and Phil Taggart, along with BBC Radio 6 Music’s Steve Lamacq and Tom Robinson will host the night of live performances. Tickets on sale now via Ticketmaster.
Since its launch in 2007, BBC Music Introducing has been dedicated to discovering and supporting new music.
George Ezra says: The music industry was a very intimidating and confusing world for me when I was 18. I knew I wanted to perform and write for a living but had no idea how to make this a reality. BBC Introducing was and still is the most amazingly inclusive platform I could have asked for.
Blossoms agree: The BBC plays a significant part in everybody’s lives in one way or another, but BBC Music Introducing (specifically) has certainly played a colossal part in ours, especially in our embryonic stage, and has continued to support us throughout.
Each BBC regional radio station across the country has a BBC Music Introducing programme dedicated to finding local talent and these musicians are propelled onto the national stage and at festivals including Glastonbury and Reading and Leeds.
BBC Music Introducing Live at O2 Academy Brixton on 4th October 2017 will be broadcast on BBC Radio 1 and BBC Radio 1’s iPlayer channel from 7pm.
