Ticketmaster has unveiled its list of top 10 artists that it predicts will dominate the live music scene in 2020.
The Live Nation-owned ticketing giant’s ‘New for 2020’ list includes Celeste, Bree Runway, Aitch, Scarypoolparty, Fletcher, Arlo Parks, JC Stewart, Inhaler, Beabadoobee and The Snuts.
Ticketmaster’s Artist Services team has selected the artists and bands it predicts will attract the biggest crowds next year.
Andrew Parsons, managing director, Ticketmaster UK, said: “A new year calls for new discoveries and 2020 is no different. Our list is more than just soulful ballads and unpredictable rap – it’s a diverse celebration of artists who’ve been here all along but are only now getting to be heard.
“We want to continue to be the place where fans come to discover the hottest acts making noise across the industry, and we will always support artists at whatever stage of their career they’re at.”
Arlo Parks, a 19-year-old poet and singer from London, said: “I’m so happy to have been selected in Ticketmaster’s New For 2020. On stage is where I feel most alive – I love that feeling of intimacy and genuine connection with everyone in the room. I’m really looking forward to touring and playing in loads of new places in 2020.”
Alternative indie band The Snuts said: “We’re grateful to Ticketmaster for recognising us as one of their artists to look out for in 2020! It’s going to be a big one.”
Ticketmaster staff have previously recognised the likes of Lewis Capaldi, Slowthai, Dermot Kennedy, Sigrid, Pale Waves and Tom Walker as ones to watch.
