Paradise London mark Glastonbury’s 50th with BBC Music Introducing film

The Best of BBC Music Introducing at Glastonbury documentary will explore former acts of The BBC Introducing Stage.

With news of Glastonbury 2020 cancelled this year because of Covid-19, Paradise London has been commissioned by the BBC Music Introducing team to produce a specially commissioned film showcasing ‘The Best of BBC Music Introducing at Glastonbury’.

The BBC Music Introducing Stage has been a Glastonbury staple since 2007 and has played host to numerous artists including Catfish and the Bottlemen (2016), Celeste (2019), Ed Sheeran (2011), George Ezra (2013), Mahalia (2019) and NAO (2015) among others.

The documentary will be available to watch on iPlayer and will be voiced by BBC Radio 1’s Huw Stephens and Introducing’s Jaguar from Monday 22 June.

The programme will explore and remember some of the major names that have played the BBC Music Introducing Stage early on in their careers.

Nick Jekyll, creative director at Paradise London, said: “Looking forward to working with our friends at BBC Music to create some exciting Glastonbury nostalgia. Hopefully our work here keeps the festival vibe alive until we can all reunite in the field again next year!”

The BBC is urging home audiences to bring Glastonbury to life from the 25-28th June. Whether they're setting up tents at home, making festival flags, food or wristbands, the BBC invites viewers to share their activities on social media, using the hashtag #Glastonbury2020.

The BBC will share a selection of these moments on its social channels so keep an eye out on both the @bbcintroducing and @paradiselondon instagram accounts from Monday 22 June – where there will be information for streaming the full Glastonbury 2020 digital takeover.
