Senior editor of Q magazine Matt Mason said: "It's been a remarkable and fascinating 12 months for music, and these nominations are a measure of that.
"We've had the surprise and brilliance of Kate Bush's return alongside the excitement and invention delivered by all the nominees in the Best New Act category.
"From the two-man blast of newcomers Royal Blood to headline performances from Kasabian, Arcade Fire and Arctic Monkeys, there have been constant reminders of rock 'n' roll's enduring power to knock our socks off. All the nominated acts have helped make 2014 a brilliant year."
