New Music Seminar’s ‘AOV’ Program is the place to experience tomorrow’s superstars before they break. Previous artists who made the AOV Top 100 in past years include Macklemore, Danny Brown, Fitz and the Tantrums, Milo Greene, Porter Robinson and White Arrows – only to name a few of our ‘AOV’ star alumni.

This year’s list is filled with not only talented artists but includes a broad range of genres for every type of music-fan. Check out the YouTube playlist for the Class of 2014 below, which features a track from each of the artists on 2014’s AOV Top 100.

The Top 100 Chart is hand selected by a committee of NMS partners, A&R Scouts, talent buyers, booking agents, media tastemakers, and other industry experts in addition to Next Big Sound analytics. Learn more about the ‘AOV’ Project here.

Last year’s Grand Prize winner, Boston indie-rockers Air Traffic Controller, took home more than $100,000 in: consultations, promotion, marketing, music equipment…and more!

The ‘AOV’ Top 100 is music’s definitive list of 100 trailblazing acts and provides them each the opportunity to perform in NYC as part of New Music Seminar June 8-10, 2014. Get to know 2014’s Top 100 below, guaranteed you’ll be seeing a lot more of them in the upcoming year!
