Leeds-based record label Dance To The Radio will once again be taking over the BBC Introducing Stage on Thursday 22nd August and kicking off the weekend at Leeds in style.

Joining the bill will be Leeds-based rock band, Black Moth, who were seduced by the brutal and hypnotic lure of the riff, to emerge translucent, skinned and bleary eyed from their cocoon as a ferocious kick-ass heavy rock outfit; Sheffield's The Crookes, a four-piece at the forefront of the nascent new pop movement in the UK guitar scene; Manchester's finest, Dutch Uncles, a group who have pitched their tents firmly in pop's left-field with crashing guitars, electronic dueling xylophones, and lead singer Duncan Wallis' 'eye-popping' dance moves; Leeds five-piece Hookworms, who are often bracketed among the latest wave of psychedelic rock and Leeds' Menace Beach, the project of members of existing local bands with Rob from Pulled Apart By Horses, Nestor from Sky Larkin and Matt from Hookworms. Their hazy grunge songs have seen comparisons with Splashh and Swim Deep.

Access to the kick off at Bramham Park will be open to all weekend ticket holders so make sure you arrive early.
