RA’s version of the year’s best list continued today with the announcement of the top live acts of 2015, and coming in the top spot is non other than our good friend KiNK.

After three consecutive top 5 finishes, the enthusiastic Bulgarian performer managed to use 2015 to greatly expand his craft, while never conforming to any given standard. Rounding out the top 5 are: Recondite, who enjoyed the top spot in 2014, followed by Âme, David August, and techno outfit Karenn.

Expanding from 20 to 40 featured artists in 2015, RA manages to open up the spectrum of musical potential, featuring diverse names from Caribou, Floating Points, Nils Frahm, and Howling to Premiesku, Rodriguez Jr. and Fatima Yamaha. Industrial techno, veteran collectives, Scandinavian disco, and many other unique styles feature in a list that can boast 7 new entries into its top 20.

You can find the complete list below, and be sure to tell us who were some of your favourite live acts of the past year!
