Mark Del, of NUSIC, said: “The Future Sound of Nottingham presents Notts musicians with several huge opportunities. From playing Rock City’s main stage, a gig many have called ‘the best night of their lives’, to getting their music in front of industry people who can help them make a living doing what they love.”

Entries for the first round will close on Monday May 2, and finalists will be expected to battle it out on the main stage at Rock City on ­­Sunday June 19. Visit for more information.
