>Just received info on this from AIM. Certainly worth a punt as part of your Radio strategy.
BBC Introducing is a network across BBC Radio, involving local stations, Radio 1, 6 Music, 1 Xtra and the Asian Network.
It aims to identify and support emerging and undiscovered artists with radio play, festival slots and live sessions, to help them take their musical career to the next level.
You can upload up to 3 tracks per artist per month to the BBC Introducing website. These tracks get listened to by the Introducing team, as well as getting sent to your local BBC station.
Many acts have had plays on their local BBC station, on 1 Xtra or 6 Music and on Radio 1 itself. Huw Stephens and Steve Lamacq are big supporters of BBC Introducing, playing artists they have discovered via this route on every show.
BBC Introducing artists who catch the attention of music fans and radio tastemakers can also get slots on the Introducing stages at major festivals including Reading and Leeds, T in The Park and Glastonbury, as well as live sessions at BBC Maida Vale studios.
