Having learnt lessons from the success of last year's prize which was won by Gruff Rhys for his album ‘Hotel Shampoo’ and learning from our conversations with other national music prizes around the world, this year we have decided to hold a concert on Wednesday October 17, the night before the announcement of the winner, at the Coal Exchange.

The list of shortlisted acts:
