Last year’s list tipped the likes of four-time nominee and two-time MOBO Award winner Central Cee and BRIT Award winner Holly Humberstone, and recent five-time Grammy Awards nominee Wet Leg.
“Fans have proven yet again this year that the desire for live music is not slowing down anytime soon, and if we can use our platform to get eyes on the finest emerging talent then that’s a win for us,” said Andrew Parsons, managing director of Ticketmaster UK and Pollstar/VenuesNow Impact International Honoree 2022.
“The accomplishments of those on our previous lists are beyond impressive, so the sky’s the limit for these ten Breakthrough artists in 2023,” Parsons continued.
Breakthrough list is part of Ticketmaster New Music, a year-round campaign celebrating and sharing the hottest emerging artists via Ticketmaster UK channels with exclusive profiles, interviews and showcase performances.
The company shared more details and information on the Breakthrough UK 2023 artists on its blog.
