Best of 2013 Poll for Emerging Chicago Artists: FINAL RESULTS!





Best of 2013 Poll for Emerging Chicago Artists: FINAL RESULTS!

Deli Nation,

Our Year End Poll for Emerging Chicago Artists was - as usual - a painstaking (and somewhat excruciating) process, but we pulled it of with remarkable flair!

For the first time in our polls' history we have two bands tied in first place! Kudos to Netherfriends and The Wild Family (both bands are pictured) for sharing the spot in the sun!

First, we let the local bands submit their music (for free), and got our Deli editors to pick the nominees. Then we polled a list of 15+ Chicago scene expert (our jury, list at the bottom) and asked them to nominate 3 more bands of their choice each. Then we polled our writers, then we polled our readers. We tried to keep things open for each single genre, from Indie Rock to Roots Music to Hip Hop.

If you are a geek interested in all the subtelties related to how this poll works, you can read its rules here (happy reading!). But if all you care about is the awesome new music Chicago produced in the year 2013, this list is all you need. Enjoy!
