Update: BBC Introducing at Reading/Leeds 2012

By on Thursday, 26th July 2012 at 9:00 am
 

And so as August approaches, 2012’s Reading and Leeds festival line-up has become complete with the addition of the BBC Introducing Stage. Reading/Leeds Festival is held on the 24th to the 26th August 2012 at Little John’s Farm in Reading and Bramham Park in Leeds.

This stage over the years has debuted acts like Florence and the Machine, Enter Shikari and Rizzle Kicks. All of these have seen a lot of commercial success lately and are a testament to the showcasing powers of the BBC Introducing Stage at this festival. TGTF favourites General Fiasco and Rizzle Kicks were just two of the bands headlining the stage last year, while lower down the bill you had Guernsey born and bred boys Courage Have Courage.

This year there’s a wealth of up and coming talent who have been added with this update, including 18-year old singer songwriter Danica Hunter, who will be bringing her powerful, unique and captivating voice to the fields. Along with her we have the 16-year old lads of Park Bench Society, who have been doing the festival circuit this summer and will be well practiced by the time the Bank Holiday weekend arrives. Our new friends from our stage at Liverpool Sound City this year, Dear Prudence, will be strutting their wares as well and should kick up a riot with their Paramore-styled songs.
