BBC Introducing Stage lineup for Glastonbury

The artists appearing on the stage represent the whole of the UK, with a diverse range of genres. The line up also includes three headliners who are all acts that BBC Introducing have supported from the early days and are now taking it to the next level – From the soulful voice of Suffolk’s Ed Sheeran on Friday, to The Good Natured’s electro-pop on Saturday and the rock sounds of Leeds band Vessels closing the stage on Sunday. It is the fifth time that the BBC Introducing stage has been at the festival, having launched itself at Glastonbury 2007.
Jason Carter, Editor, BBC Introducing, says: “The BBC Introducing stage at Glastonbury is a great platform for artists sourced via the BBC Introducing Network. In addition to performing at one of the world’s greatest festivals, the artists who grace the stage also gain further exposure through our commitment to filming, which means their music is seen and heard to those experiencing the festival at home.”
