The votes have been counted and things got heated in the ILUVLIVE office but finally the top 10 can be revealed.
Launched in 2015, our Hotlist features ten acts we think the tippers will be tipping in the coming years. Candidates can be signed but are usually not and must not have released an album via a major record label. Early successes include Nadia Rose, Ray Blk, Dave, Abra Cadabra, Kojey Radical, Raye, Taya, Ms Banks, Age of Luna and Stefflon Don.
ILUVLIVE is the UK’s premier homegrown live music event and offers 50 events annually across six UK cities. Launched in 2004, previous performers include Jessie J, Ed Sheeran, Chip, Emeil Sande, Naughty Boy, Professor Green, Maverick Sabre, Plan B, Tinie Tempah, Katy B, Shakka, Kano, Krept & Konan, Izzy Bizu and Wretch 32 to name but a few. ILUVLIVE also run an annual artist development programme supported by The Arts Council England and have a record label and management arm (Izzy Bizu, Emmavie).
Five acts from the top ten will go on to perform at our Hotlist show on Jan 22nd at The Camden Assembly as part of the Spotlight Festival and supported by BMI.
The aim is that the list and the show generate industry and media interest and help acts further along the road to success.
