Open to all artist types / genres

With so much music being released everyday, getting your music heard by new audiences can be a true challenge for emerging artists. Luckily, popular radio show host Nels Hylton (of Radio 1's Future Alternative show) is here to help.

This Apply to be Played opportunity encourages artists to upload their finest recorded track to date, where Nels will listen to, and hand-pick a selection of tracks over a six-week period. Selected artists will have their music featured in one of Nel's popular TikTok videos - exposing his curated audience to your music.

You can follow Nels' series of videos, which celebrates new music and rising talent on TikTok (@nelshylton). Get your application in now for a chance to be one of the featured artists, and have your music broadcast on the fastest-growing social media platform of 2024.
