Following on from several years of hosting stages at festivals across the UK and beyond – including Glastonbury, Reading & Leeds, SXSW and ADE – as well as last year's 'Amplify' event in East London, BBC Music Introducing have now unveiled their new project: BBC Music Introducing Live '18.
Taking place over the course of three days from 8-10 November in London's Tobacco Dock venue, the new festival will provide a further platform to up-and-coming musical talent, to help unsigned and under-the-radar acts to achieve greater recognition and support.
In addition to live performances, the festival will also host more than 100 masterclasses, workshops, Q&A's and interactive sessions to help aspiring artists to achieve their full potential.
More than 15,000 musicians and industry professionals will be in attendace across the weekend, covering everything from A+R to sound engineering.
On the new project, BBC Music's Head of Content James Stirling has said that "BBC Music Introducing Live will be a unique event, drawing on the passion and experience of the entire UK music industry and providing unrivalled access for those aspiring to make their way in to the business".
Updates on the festival's programme and on ticketing will be released in June. Have a look at what went down at last year's Amplify event for a taste of what you can expect from the new venture.
