Help BBC 6 Music make some Ultimate End of Year Lists
At the end of the year there’s one thing which dominates the online music world – lists – and over the next few weeks at Now Playing @6Music we are going to do a series of list-based shows which we need your help with.
1. #Blog6Music - Hype Machine 2012 UK Blog Zeitgeist (December 16)
Hype Machine is the biggest music blog aggregator in the world, pulling together well over 650-different sites to track what is the most talked about music at that moment. They’ve already revealed their overall end of year lists but we’ve especially commissioned them to create the Top 25 most blogged artists in just the UK.
They’ve taken this data from the 137-active blogs which they database – including regular Now Playing contributors The Mahogany Blog, The Line of Best Fit and A New Band A Day. Who will come top? Find out on Sunday and join in the conversation by using #Blog6Music on Twitter.
2. #6Music2012 – the Ultimate 2012 Playlist (December 30)
What is the best track you’ve heard this year? What song will instantly take you back to a 2012 memory? What was your best live moment of the past 12-months.
With just 30-hours left of the year we will run down some of your favourite tracks of the past year with your input on Twitter using #6Music2012, Facebook, here on the blog and on this collaborative Spotify Playlist which you can add track to.
Can you remember what you thought would be big in 2012 this time last year? Well here’s the Spotify playlist you helped put together…
3. #6Music2013 – the Ultimate 2013 Playlist? (January 6)
A lot of people help to put together the BBC Sound of 2013 list, and equally a number of blogs tip artists to shine – but what we want to know is who do our 6 Music listeners think will go from nobodies to stars in the next 12-months.
But it doesn’t just have to be new acts. If your favourite artist is returning in 2013 and you just can’t wait to have them back – like Klaxons, Johnny Marr or perhaps even Daft Punk – we want to know that as well.
And as always, we want your suggestions on Twitter by using #6Music2013, Facebook, here on the blog and on this collaborative Spotify playlist.
So there’s a lot for you to get your teeth into – but we know you’re up for the challenge.
