BBC Newcastle is set to shine an even bigger spotlight on new music talent in our region, with the launch of its North East new music playlist. Throughout 2019, every three months will find three emerging artists added to the North East new music playlist on the radio station, which means lots of radio play for the artists selected across the schedules.

The artists selected will also be interviewed as part of the evening schedule, alongside racking up at least 5o plays of their music per month with the goal of giving artists a chance to take the next steps in their career as well as snaffling up some useful exposure.

BBC Newcastle has long shown itself as a supporter of new music, and ever since the launch of BBC Music Introducing North East launched with Nick Roberts in 2013, it has gone from strength to strength with being played on that show a really top moment for much of our local music talent. This new opportunity is something very special and for the artists involved, a truly wonderful platform.
