NTS celebrated its 10th birthday in April 2021, with Theo Parrish, Dopplereffekt, My Bloody Valentine and Matt Groening, creator of The Simpsons, performing guest sets. NTS is an abbreviation for Nuts To Soup, referencing an episode of The Simpsons. When asked about the name in a 2019 interview with Hypebeast, NTS founder Femi Adeyemi said: “I could really get into a deep philosophical reason why we chose the name, and there is one, trust me.”
