BBC Music Introducing’s flagship music discovery festival – BBC Music Introducing LIVE – is returning in November.

For the very first time, it will take place across the UK and across 3 days, and will be touching down in Newcastle on Friday 4th November to celebrate and showcase the region’s unique and thriving electronic music scene.

BBC Music Introducing LIVE will see an array of live gigs, masterclasses, practical workshops, talks and Q&As take place across the UK.

Now in its 15th anniversary year, BBC Music Introducing has been dedicated to discovering and supporting new music since 2007. It gives up-and-coming artists broadcast opportunities on BBC radio, television and online, alongside the chance to perform at major festivals and showcases.

Big name artists including Ed Sheeran, Florence + the Machine, Little Simz, Celeste, Sam Fender, Mabel, Aitch, Raye, Arlo Parks, Loyle Carner, The 1975 and Chvrches all received BBC Music Introducing support at the start of their careers.

Kelly Betts, Editor, BBC Introducing says: “BBC Music Introducing LIVE is one of the fastest growing and most exciting events in the calendar for any young artist or creative, and I am so proud to be taking it right across the UK this year. There are some incredible DJ’s coming out of Newcastle right now and our goal with BBC Music Introducing Live is to provide emerging musical talent across the nation the opportunity to build profile and awareness as they take their next step in their careers”.
