The results are in from the Open Submissions stage for our Chicago Year End Poll for Emerging Artists. All of the submissions were ranked by Deli Editors from other scenes and the list of acts that have advanced to our Readers’/Fans’ Poll phase are below.
A quick reminder that these list are not final nor complete - most of the bands accessing the final stage of the poll are currently being chosen by our local "scene expert" jurors - we'll publish the complete list of nominees very soon.
We would like to thank all of the talented artists who submitted. It was our largest Open Submissions pool yet, and certainly a testament to how many rad acts we have in Chicago.
Qualified to the final phase of the Best of Chicago Poll
Jurors: Dawn Reed (Deli DC), Brianne Turner (Deli Nashville), Paolo De Gregorio (Deli NYC).
