Reading + Leeds BBC Music Introducing Stage Confirmed

By Punktastic

One of the best platforms for emerging artists on the festival circuit, the line-up for this year’s BBC Music Introducing Stage has now been confirmed, with a whole host of the best in emerging UK artists joining a stacked festival line-up including You Me At Six, Frank Carter & The Rattlesnakes, Against The Current and Enter Shikari.

Since first arriving at Reading & Leeds Festivals in 2008, the BBC Music Introducing stage has offered a unique experience to bands and festivalgoers alike, with an array of untapped talent and a history of secret sets.

Headlining the stage at Reading on Friday 23 August and Leeds on Saturday 24 August are Leeds’s own upbeat indie-pop masters Marsicans whose driving, harmony-laden sound and hard-hitting live shows are earning them a reputation as an emerging force in British music. Joining them are Olivia Nelson, Blackwaters, Do Nothing, Inka Upendo, SPINN, Caswell, Hyphen, Royls, and Swimming Girls.


Ishani, Charlotte, Alfie Templeman, FEET, Le Boom, HMD and Larkins will perform at Reading on Saturday 24 August and Leeds on Sunday 25 August, with the fierce, raspy-voiced rock artist LION headlining the stage.


Raucous grunge rock three-piece The Mysterines will headline the BBC Music Introducing Stage on Friday 23 August in Leeds and Sunday 25 August in Reading, bringing their high-energy, angsty protests and catchy melodies aplenty. Kid Kapichi, Balcony, Kofi Stone, The Extons, Lavz, VC Pines, Prima, and Leeds own Talkboy will also be performing.

Check out the full line-up for Reading + Leeds below – with main stage headliners The 1975, Post Malone, Twenty Øne Piløts and Foo Fighters, it’s set to be an incredible weekend. Full weekend tickets are now sold out for Reading, but some day tickets are still available here, while both weekend and day tickets for Leeds are available here.
