BBC Introducing Stage

We warmly welcome you into the sylvan walls of the Lavish Lounge to discover the very best in emerging talent on the BBC Introducing Stage.

Relax back on comfy sofas by day and dance in the Woodland moon shadows by night, to a program lovingly curated for your sheer delight and pleasure by BBC Music and friends.

Curational partners who have trod the fern covered Introducing boards in the Lounge to date have included BBC Radio 1Xtra and BBC Asian Network. Audiences have enjoyed live broadcasts including BBC Radio 2’s Zoe Ball and Dermott O’Leary shows and BBC Radio 4’s Loose Ends. Special guests have included Rudimental, Porij, Nubya Garcia, LF System and the Idles.
