Sound of 2012

Now in its tenth year, the Sound of 2012 is a list of the most promising new music acts for the year ahead.

Those included are chosen by a panel of UK-based tastemakers who each named their favourite three new acts, with the top 15 making up the long list.

The panel is made up of respected writers, critics, editors, bloggers as well as producers and presenters from TV and radio.

The top five were ranked and revealed in reverse order live on Radio 1 during the week beginning 2nd January 2012, with one act named each day.

For full details visit the Sound of 2012 website

Press red to see a special programme profiling this year's top five, featuring exclusive interviews and live performances.

Will Skrillex be the Sound of 2012?
