Search is On for Local Artists- BBC Music Introducing at Bedford River Festival

Published on 31 May 2022


As announced recently, the BBC Music Introducing stage is making its first ever appearance at the Bedford River Festival.

The stage will be curated by the team at BBC Music Introducing in Beds, Herts & Bucks.

BBC Introducing supports unsigned, undiscovered and under-the-radar musicians.

The search is now on for local artists to represent Bedford and the surrounding areas to play for BBC Introducing on Saturday the 23rd and Sunday 24th July at the festival.

For your chance to be considered to play on the Bedford River Festival stage, upload your original music to bbc.co.uk/introducing so that the BBC Introducing team know about you. Are you making music? We want to hear it.

Mayor Dave Hodgson said “This is a great opportunity for local musicians, joining the BBC Music Introducing stage at the River Festival for the first time. The River Festival is a spectacular event, with a quarter of a million visitors expected over the weekend. If you want a chance to get up on that stage, visit bbc.co.uk/introducing.”

BBC Music Introducing has been there at the start of music careers for artists like Tom Grennan, James Bay, Griff, George Ezra and many others.

The summer festival season has already started with the BBC Introducing stage enjoying massive crowds at Radio One’s Big Weekend in Coventry.

You can hear BBC Music Introducing in Beds, Herts and Bucks every Saturday night from 8pm on BBC Three Counties Radio.

This July the BBC Introducing stage will be the home of under-the-radar music at the Bedford River Festival.
