Submissions are reviewed across 3 channels:
This route is primarily for established artists. We work with several major playlist agencies and partners to currate our A & B list, and submitting your music via this channel provides the best chance of getting your sound on-air.
Again for established artists, we may from time to time permit direct submissions to our playlist team. This generally covers artists who have already featured on the station 3+ times in the last 12 months. If you're one of these artists, please contact our team to confirm your interest re: direct submissions (ideally ahead of release day), so we can make sure we get your track on air when required.
Direct submission artists can also apply for promotion services using the form below (such as coverage on our app, blog or social) but are not eligible for on-air promotion. This is only available via a #sponsored release.
For all other artists, such as emerging talent, we offer the chance to promote your track via a #sponsored release. Find out more below.
