Emily Pilbeam is a radio presenter, producer, team assistant and DJ. Emily first started working in radio when she volunteered at her local hospital radio station back when she was 15. Fast forward three years, she landed herself a job working as a team assistant for BBC Introducing in West Yorkshire and since then has gone on to work as a team assistant for BBC Introducing in Humberside, BBC Introducing in North Yorkshire and Radio 1. Emily is now the host of BBC Music Introducing in West Yorkshire and regularly DJ’s across multiple venues in Leeds.
We may not be able to put on the festival this year for, err, obvious reasons, but that’s not going to stop us doing something!
We’re excited to be working alongside our friends at BBC Introducing in Lincolnshire to bring the BTW experience to your own home. All evening on Saturday 8th August you can hear specially recorded sets from a host of exciting Lincolnshire acts, as well as some bands playing live (in a socially distanced manner, of course)!
Local presenter and new-music champion Hannah Fletcher will be hosting the special programme which will go out live on BBC Radio Lincolnshire, with additional video streamed on Facebook. She’ll be joined by Joe – Founder of Beyond The Woods – for some insight into what would have been going on at the festival.
We’re encouraging everyone to get involved at home. Why not get the BBQ going, dress up in some festival gear and get the radio on, and don’t forget to tag us (@btwfestival) in any photos!
