Roundhouse Rising Festival 2018 is supported by YouTube.

BBC Music Introducing returns to present a night of emerging talent.

Multi-talented artist Dapz on the Map continues to rise in the Urban UK music scene, raising topics throughout his lyrics that other MCs fear to speak. The MC supported Kano on all dates of his UK Made in the Manor 2016 tour and opened for Skepta on the Birmingham leg of his Konnichiwa Tour. With his first ever headline show at the 02 Academy Birmingham sold out, he is one to watch.

He will be supported by the soulful, hop-hop and R&B influenced Mvngo & Lashes, whose sounds and lyrics are influenced by the likes of Monica, Brandy, Faith Evans, Missy, Lauren Hill and TLC.

Other acts include up and coming singer and rapper Alicaì Harley and BBC supported artist Shivz, who continues to rise with a BBC Introducing ‘Track of the Week’ and an appearance in ‘Fire in the Booth’ with Charlie Sloth.

The Glastonbury 2017 Emerging Talent runner up Yizzy completes the billing. Only seventeen years of age and already listed on ‘NME’s 100 Essential Artists’ in January, the grime artist promises big things.

At school I spent most of my time battling with my identity. My education started properly when I was 22 and I got more involved in music and theatre.
