Launched in 2015, The ILUVLIVE Hotlist longlist features twenty acts we think the tippers will be tipping in the coming years. This is whittled down to our Hotlist Top Ten by a combination of public votes and the iluvlive team. Candidates can be signed but cannot have released an album via a major record label. Early successes include Nadia Rose, Ray Blk and Stefflon Don, IAMDDB, Dave, Kodjey Radical and Raye.
The long list of twenty acts is announced on Tuesday 6th November when public voting opens. The final top ten will be announced on 20th November 2018.
Five acts from the top 10 will then go on to perform at our Hotlist show on January 28th at The Camden Assembly supported by BMI.
The aim is that the list and the show generate media and industry interest and help acts further along the road to success.
