Yamaha @ BBC Introducing Live 2019 - #MakeWaves.

BBC Introducing Live 2019

Yamaha will again be an official partner at 'BBC Introducing Live' on October 31st through to November 2nd at London’s historic Tobacco Dock.

BBC Introducing is a platform to support unsigned, undiscovered and under the radar musicians. Every summer you’ll find the BBC Introducing stage at major festivals like Glastonbury, Reading & Leeds, and Radio 1’s Big Weekend.

In the winter, there is BBC Introducing Live; a one of its kind, bustling and vibrant event, offering talks, masterclasses and workshops aimed at the aspiring musician, producer or industry professional.

"There’s a lot of amazing people talking about what they do, why the do it, how they do it. If you’re an aspiring musician, you should definitely go down!” – George Ezra

"BBC Introducing takes your music from the rehearsal room, up through all the radio stations, to the people who want to hear you.” – Steve Lamacq

“BBC Introducing is a really good way of spotlighting artists, you will get noticed & hopefully one day I will be playing your music on the radio” – Jo Whiley
