Emerging South African music talent had the chance to perform in a special weekend of performances that led to two acts being chosen to perform at the Roundhouse Rising festival at the iconic Roundhouse music venue in London (UK) next February 2014.

For the climax of the British Council Connect ZA and Live Magazine SA #FutureMusic series for this year, the hunt is on for emerging SA bands, producers and performers to put themselves forward for consideration to a judging panel of experts.

Six acts will be shortlisted to perform in either Cape Town or Johannesburg at the #FutureMusic shows on the 8 and 9 November. The judging panel will then select the best of the best for the Roundhouse Rising UK performance next year.

Information about the nominated artists eligible for shortlisting is available here. NB: For those acts who submitted a nomination online but are not featured on the blog, unfortunately you didn’t provide all required details with your application including links to images, detailed act description, website or Facebook fan page etc. Or we felt you didn’t have enough information available online for your act to be properly evaluated for shortlisting. For more information about the criteria and terms and conditions, visit livemag.co.za/futuremusicrising.

All of the artists featured on this site have been nominated for #FutureMusic Rising. The nominations deadline is Saturday 26 October 2013. The shortlisted artists will be announced on Wednesday 30 October. They will perform at our final #FutureMusic shows for the year in either Johannesburg on Friday 8 November or Cape Town on Saturday 9 November.
