BBC Introduction Acts announced for Standon Calling

Kings of pop Club de Fromage are taking on the golden oldies of Coffin Dodgers Disco in a battle of the titans! Expect general silliness, top tunes, giant balloons, free merchandise, the infamous limbo and lots more. Bring those dancing shoes and a comfy cardigan!

Standon Calling's founder, Alex Trenchard comments. "We're so pleased to have the BBC Introducing team curate one of our favourite stages at Standon and incredibly excited about the talent that is emerging from the surrounding areas. We're firm believers in supporting new and emerging talent and with a history of booking acts that go on to great things whether Florence & The Machine, Mumford & Sons, Clean Bandit, London Grammar, and we hope the eight selected artists will enjoy their time at Standon as much as we will undoubtedly enjoy their fantastic live performances."

BBC Introducing Three Counties comments, "Standon Calling has always been a great supporter of new music, showcasing acts like Mumford and Sons & Florence & The Machine early on their career. With that in mind in makes perfect sense for BBC Introducing to have our own stage there. We're very excited to show the festival the acts we have to offer. One day you'll tell your grandchild about the time you saw (insert name of the biggest band in the world) on the Introducing stage at Standon Calling."
