NTS Work In Progress

One Year
Artist Development

The Programme:

In September 2018 NTS Radio launched a new artist development programme: ‘NTS Work In Progress’. Designed to take up to eight musicians, bands, and DJs to the next stages of their careers, this project will support artists from all backgrounds and across all genres globally – anything from experimental club music through to traditional folk, ambient improvisations, garage punk or hip-hop.

Selected NTS WIP artists will receive the following:

  • Free audio equipment and software from our partners: Audio-Technica, Native Instruments, Pioneer DJ and Spitfire Audio
  • International paid performance opportunities
  • Free recording and practise studio time
  • An NTS radio show
  • An NTS produced music video
  • Press photos
  • Mentoring sessions from music industry experts
  • A stay at Villa Lena retreat in Tuscany as an artist-in-residence.


Applications to the 2019 programme closed on Sunday 30th September 2018 (UK time).

Selection Process:

NTS along with Philipp Maiburg and Michael Leuffen (Carhartt WIP) will be selecting up to eight musicians, bands and DJs.

We will be announcing the NTS WIP artists in November 2018.
