The C24 mixtape follows on from the Bose x NME C23 mixtape that showcased exclusive tracks from King Princess, Genesis Owusu, Flo Milli and Raye collaborator 070 Shake.

The C24 mixtape will be shared as a limited run of 500 hand-numbered C24 vinyl and an ultra-limited run of C24 cassette tapes. The mixtape will coincide with a special print edition of NME Magazine featuring the winning unsigned artist.

This new collaboration is a huge opportunity for an unsigned artist to feature alongside globally acclaimed artists to kick-start their careers.

How do unsigned artists get involved?

BandLab’s global community of 60 million creators will be invited to submit an original track to be judged by the C24 panel. The Bose x NME C24 BandLab programme is open now and will close at midnight GMT on April 8th 2024. To submit a track and check terms and conditions, click here.

Bose x NME C24 continues the series' mission of being the definitive showcase of the future of music packed with original and exclusive tracks from the most exciting and innovative emerging artists set to break through and become the festival headliners of tomorrow.

The lineup announcement will be made ahead of the mixtape’s release in the summer of 2024 and will be available on digital platforms including Spotify, Apple Music, Amazon, and Soundcloud.

 Bose x NME C23 was the start of a brand new era for the seminal C-Series, creating the opportunity for emerging artists to have their music championed and heard all over the world. We are beyond excited to follow up on such a landmark project with Bose x NME C24 while bringing in a brand new grassroots opportunity through BandLab. Once again, we can’t wait for the world to hear this

incredible collection of original and exclusive new music
