One of our biggest shows of the year! This week’s New Music Podcast announces which musicians have made it to the Future Sound of Nottingham Semi-Finals. With 65 entries, from a wide variation of genres, and a mysteriously important score number, this was one of the closest Semi-Finals yet! Cliche, we know, but true.
Details on the rules, judging process and anything else you might want to know about FSN are in the FSN homepage HERE.

SEMI-FINALISTS – You’ll hear more info direct from us by Thursday evening. We deliberately leave it a few days so as not to crash the voting system and also to reward those who’ve bothered listening to the podcast. We’re quite militant about driving listening to the podcast because that creates a bigger audience for us to play your music to, win-win!
PLEASE – Don’t feel too down if you didn’t make it this year, your progress to the Semi-Final depends on the verdict of five sets of ears, it may be your awesome but your music just didn’t resonate with those particular ears. Please also remember we try our best, we put a lot of effort in to creating this opportunity and then put an independent judging panel in place to make these tricky decisions (and of course expose your music to industry pros who can help you if they like what they hear, regardless of whether you make it to the next round). NO ONE AT NUSIC VOTES. Full breakdown of judging situation and all FSN rules HERE.
