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!”
