Ticketmaster Australia & New Zealand has revealed their ten Breakthrough acts set to dominate the live scene in 2024. 

Ticketmaster’s annual Breakthrough list is a hand-picked selection that celebrates exceptional local talent and embodies Ticketmaster’s commitment to supporting home-grown artists. These are the hottest artists, bands and singer-songwriters set to make waves on stages worldwide this year. 

Gavin Taylor, Ticketmaster Australia Managing Director, said, “Across the globe, Ticketmaster Music teams are always tuned into the heartbeat of the local music scenes, closely monitoring emerging talent. This year’s list reflects the extremely gifted local artists who are ready to take their careers to the next level.”

The list tops off with Polynesian-Australian powerhouse RISSA who calls her music ‘untainted soul’ which is a fair approximation of what it sounds like to hear her, and her amazing backing singers take to the stage.

Meanwhile, Coterie a Kiwi-Aussie band of brothers, landed themselves on loads of festival bills across the country in 2023. Their intoxicating live shows seamlessly mix indie-rock and reggae – reaching fever pitch over the summer season, the world’s truly their oyster in the coming 12 months.

The thundercat-like rhythmic and harmonic acrobatics of Melbourne-based Emma Volard has caught our attention this year. And on a similar wavelength, known for his improvisatory style and ruthless guerrilla approach to music-making, xmunashe is likely to become a huge deal in 2024 and has quickly stolen our hearts. 

Aotearoa’s Mohi Allen charmed the pants off us as part of the New Zealand showcase at this year’s South By Southwest with the kind of voice you’d bet your house on, while Mr Rhodes and his electrifying live show which comes with a live band, sits somewhere between James Murphy and Kendrick Lamar.

Angular, shouty and charmingly fresh, Radio Free Alice is undeniably in for an incredible year with the group’s name on everyone’s lips. And with a fixture on triple j Unearthed in 2023 and picking up tour support from Boy and Bear to Soccer Mommy and Methyl Ethel, the next twelve months are set to be just as hyped for FELIVAND.  

Lismore’s Liminal takes up one of the last spots on the list, with the killer four-piece that is both stupidly young and talented and it’s only a matter of time before they become the next big thing. 

Finally, Finnoguns Wake, the newest project from ex-Royal Headache frontman who has teamed up with Finn Berzin, rounds out Ticketmaster’s Breakthrough 2024 list. 

Breakthrough list is part of a Ticketmaster New Music campaign celebrating and sharing the hottest emerging artists to thousands of fans on Ticketmaster Australia & New Zealand channels.
