With Reading and Leeds fest now quickly approaching, we’ve got our first look at the exciting new names who will be taking to this year’s BBC Introducing Stage!
Showcasing the UK’s best emerging talent, indie-pop babes Marsicians, rock artist LION and grunge trio The Mysterines have been announced as this year’s BBC Introducing headliners. Later on in the line-up, we’ll get a chance to see DIY faves Swimming Girls, Alfie Templeman and FEET also take to the stage, amongst tons of other buzzy new bands.
This year’s festival (in case you live under a rock and didn’t know) will be headlined by The 1975, Post Malone and Twenty One Pilots, and Foo Fighters, with loads of BBC Introducing alum performing alongside them too. Make sure you grab a ticket before they all go and come and witness Team DIY having a small cry to ‘Somebody Else’ IRL.

From bedroom pop confines to one of indie’s shiniest new stars, on ‘Forever Isn’t Long Enough’ Alfie Templeman is showing that you can push forward whilst still having heaps of fun.
It turns up the production slickness while sacrificing none of his affable, boyish charm.
That’s right - with a little help from Marshall, we’re hosting a big ol’ (socially distanced) gig later this month and you’re all invited!
The track features on Alfie’s forthcoming mini-album.
