SPREADING THE LOVE is back for 2014!

The idea of our annual FSN SPREADTHELOVE is to reach and spread good vibes about other artists for no reason other than a genuine love of what they do. In the process of all this you can secure yourself an amazing opportunity, all for being a lovely person spreading the Nottingham music love. Karma Baby.

The artist that spreads the most love will win an automatic place in the FUTURE SOUND OF NOTTINGHAM Semi Finals, securing the incredible opportunity to compete for a chance to perform alongside TOM ODELL & HAPPY MONDAYS on the main stage at Splendour. The Deadline is 1pm 10th April, the champ will be announced on the New Music Podcast on Monday 14th April, so get Spreading The Love now!


- Tag us @FeelTheNusic so we can see and count your LOVE SPREAD. This is about love spreading, not us, so you do not have to tag us, but it does increase the chances of us seeing your tweet and therefore being able to count it.
- Use at least one of the hashtags #NottsLove #SpreadTheLove.
- LOVE SPREADING means it must be about some else not you, this is no self loving!
- We suggest you tag the other artist so they can see you being lovely about them, this often starts off a positive chain reaction of LOVE SPREADING.
- Please honour the spirit of the competition, if you LOVESPREAD ‘some one else’ who we know you actually manage, sleep with etc this may not be counted. The idea of #SpreadTheLove is to reach and spread good vibes about other artists because they inspire you and you love what they do, not cause it fulfills a self-interest.
- Repeating the same LOVESPREAD does not count.
- Only the initial LOVESPREAD counts as a LOVESPREAD, for example if on Twitter a conversation develops this is great and is good for both artists virally but it does not count as further LOVE SPREADING points.


- No limit on how many times you Spread The Love.
- LOVE SPREADING about covers will not count, we are focused on encouraging original song writing.
- LOVE SPREADING relating to competitions (e.g the current Download comp) WILL be counted but will NOT be retweeted, passive followers who aren’t registering the FSN context would perceive us as being biased.
- During ‘STL season’ we will normally get too many tweets for us to retweet them all (as is our usual STL tweet policy the other 50 weeks of the year), therefore we’ll normally retweet the first STL tweet from an artist each day, and from that point on only the most entertaining STL tweets.
- We’ll operate this just like a professional broadcaster would so no members of the Nusic team or their family can win, they’re obviously welcome to Spread The Love!
- Please remember the spirit here; we’re trying to help our musicians, giving them much deserved exposure for being awesome. Apologies if you’re the sort of person who this makes wanna vom.
