What is BBC Music Introducing?
Since its launch in 2007, BBC Music Introducing has been dedicated to discovering and supporting new music.
As of our 15th anniversary in 2022, there are over 900,000 tracks – over 7 years’ worth of music – uploaded to the BBC Music Introducing website and more than 300,000 artists are registered.
How it works
It all starts with undiscovered artists registering with our uploader. They fill out a few bits of information like their artist name and postcode, and then they can upload their tracks. It’s as simple as that.
Those uploaded tracks get sent to the BBC’s local radio shows where they get listened to by our team of local presenters and producers. If they like them the tracks could get broadcast on those local stations and even propelled onto the national stage through BBC Radio 1, 1Xtra, Radio 2, 6 Music, Radio 3, Asian Network and World Service.
BBC Music Introducing also provides up-and-coming artists with broadcast opportunities on television and online, as well as the chance to perform at major festivals and showcases.
FACT: 7 of the top 10 biggest selling songs of 2022 came from artists championed by their local Introducing show.
The Live Lounge is a standing venue with some unreserved seating. Seating is not guaranteed and may not be available for all shows. If you have a disability and need a seat please call us on 0151 236 1965 in advance to make arrangements!
