Ticketmaster unveils Breakthrough 2024

Check out our picks of the hottest new artists you must see live in 2024! Ticketmaster’s annual Breakthrough list is a selection of the artists, bands and singer-songwriters set to make waves on stages worldwide. Previous lists tipped the likes of Central Cee, Holly Humberstone and Wet Leg.

For the first time, this year’s UK and Ireland-based acts will receive a groundbreaking grant of £5,000 each, underscoring Ticketmaster’s commitment to fostering the next generation of talent.

Andrew Parsons, Managing Director Ticketmaster UK, said: “These ten acts have been shining at grassroots venues up and down the country, and we know they have what it takes to make their mark on this industry. That’s why we’re committed to having their backs as they grow, helping with the costs faced on the road and showcasing them to a whole new legion of fans. We can’t wait to see the heights they hit in 2024.”
