The BBC Music Introducing Stage has been a Glastonbury staple since 2007 and over the years has played host to artists including Catfish and the Bottlemen (2016), Celeste (2019), Ed Sheeran (2011), George Ezra (2013), Mahalia (2019) and NAO (2015) to name a few.
In light of this years festival being cancelled due to COVID-19, Paradise London have been commisioned by the BBC Music Introducing team to produce, a specially commissioned film, showcasing ‘The Best of BBC Music Introducing at Glastonbury’.
The iPlayer documentary will be voiced by BBC Radio 1’s Huw Stephens and Introducing’s Jaguar from Monday 22nd June. The programme will explore and remember some of the major names that have played the BBC Music Introducing Stage early on in their careers.
“Looking forward to working with our friends at BBC Music to create some exciting Glastonbury nostalgia. Hopefully our work here keeps the festival vibe alive until we can all reunite in the field again next year!”
– Nick Jekyll, Creative Director, Paradise London
