Philadelphia continues to be a hotbed for great music, and this summer, Billy Penn will be spotlighting some of the industry’s most talented professionals. The question is: Who deserves recognition?

We are now accepting nominations for our Who’s Next: Music list. Who’s Next, presented by the Knight Foundation, is a regular series that honors impressive Philadelphians under the age of 40. Our aim is to offer a unique look at the young people making waves in Philly, sector by sector. Over the past two and a half years, we’ve recognized more than 300 of these up-and-comers — check out all the past lists here.

This will be the second time we’ve honored local musicians, and we need your help finding more impressive candidates. To nominate a Philadelphia musician or industry professional for the list, please fill out the form below. You’re also welcome to send nominations to tips@billypenn.com with “Who’s Next: Music” in the subject line. Nominations are due by August 7.
