Festival Republic have today confirmed the line-up for the BBC Introducing Stage at Reading & Leeds Festival. This stage showcases the very best brand new talent and is the fourth 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, Florence and The Machine, Pulled Apart By Horses and Dinosaur Pile Up have made their debuts at Reading & Leeds on this stage, giving them a powerful platform to move onto greater things.

The Reading & Leeds Festival is held on 26th – 28th August 2011 at Little John’s Farm in Reading and Bramham Park in Leeds. The full line-up and further information can be found at /
