Bbc Introducing Stage 2010 Line Up Announced

This is where the very best brand new talent from the UK gets its first chance to appear in front of the greatest tastemakers in the country - the audience at Reading and Leeds Festivals. This is the third year both sites have enjoyed this popular stage.

The bands that play are chosen through a combination of the BBC's countrywide Introducing shows, Leeds promoters Futuresound and festival promoters Festival Republic. In the past the likes of Everything Everything, General Fiasco, Pulled Apart By Horses and Goldheart Assembly have made their debuts at Reading and Leeds on this stage and gone onto great things.

Several bands have gained their place at the festival through winning highly fought competitions including local boys Kasiuss who bring their intelligent modern rock to the Festival Republic Stage (Saturday 28th Leeds, Sunday 29th Reading). Kvelertak won their spot via a national TV search in their native Norway and Penguin were worthy champions of the Martin House Children's Hospice battle of the bands - the Centre Stage competition.

With all stages now announced (Main, NME/Radio 1, Lock Up/Dance, Festival Republic and Alternative) the countdown begins with less than a month to go. The READING & LEEDS FESTIVAL is held on 27th - 29th August 2010 at Little John's Farm in Reading and Bramham Park in Leeds. Tickets for this event are now sold out.
