Our friends at BBC Introducing in Lincolnshire are massive supporters of our local music scene. Not only do they offer airplay opportunities for artists, they also help curate line-ups for cool local events. (Even if we do say so ourselves!)
Last weekend was no exception as they took over The Platform Bar in The Engine Shed to host a summer showcase. This was an opportunity to catch some of the best acts that our county has to offer so we jumped at the chance to head down and check out the bands. It's safe to say there were plenty of familiar faces, including 2 bands who will feature at Beyond The Woods!
The first of these was Striped Sight. This powerful, rocky four-piece blew us away with their energetic on stage presence. They were also really fun and we're sure that these newcomers will go down really well at the festival!
The others were electronic heavyweights Lola + The Cosmic Getaway. A dynamic duo with incredible vocals and complicated electronic sampling - made to look effortless btw - it's no wonder that these guys have gained support from the likes of Tom Robinson at 6 music and are set to appear on the BBC Introducing stage at Latitude Festival. (Hey Latitude, we booked them first!!)
It was also great to see some festival alumni on show including Don't Forget Rupert & GUTS., as well various members of other bands who now play in different bands.
We're now really excited for what August has to offer. Early Bird tickets and Tier 1 tickets are sold out with Tier 2 going like mad, so make sure you get on it while you can!
A limited number of weekend tickets to Beyond The Woods 2019 are available now for just £35!
We went down to BBC Introducing's Summer Showcase to check out some great local bands!
We're delighted to be able to announce the Lincolnshire artists playing our BBC Music Introducing Stage
We're returning to Lincoln's Liquor for our third BTW Presents night. See you down the front!
