GeneralUK Festival Awards co-Director Steve Jenner says: “A tough year has seen the UK’s festival industry step up and deliver a truly remarkable and spectacular season in 2009, giving enjoyment and inspiration to millions of live music fans through these trying times. In recognition of this overall achievement, and the many individual triumphs that have comprised it, we intend to pull out all the stops and give the industry its greatest celebration yet.”
About me:The UK Festival Awards sets the standard for Britain's festival scene by allowing fans to credit those who put in the best efforts each year. The awards are run by Virtual Festivals with the winners announced at a live show. This year (2009) this takes place at London's IndigO2 inside the o2 on Thursday 19th November Now in its fourth year as a live gala ceremony, the UK Festival Awards features 13 public voted categories that have been tweaked slightly to fully represent the UK’s diverse festival industry. The fan-voted award categories in full are: • Best Major Festival • Best Medium-Sized Festival • Best Small Festival • Best Toilets • The Grass Roots Festival Award • Best Overseas Festival • Best Family Festival • Anthem of the Summer • Best Breakthrough Artist • Best Headline Artist • Best Dance Event • Best Metropolitan Festival • Most Memorable Moment Brand new for 2009 is the ‘Best Metropolitan Festival’, which has been added to the list of awards to represent the growing number of multi-venue festivals staged within urban conurbations such as the Camden Crawl, The Great Escape in Brighton, Dot-To-Dot in Bristol and Nottingham, Stag & Dagger Festival in London, Leeds and Glasgow and more. As always, everyone who votes will be entered into the prize draw to win two VIP tickets to each of the winning festivals, which could see you going to up to 11 of the best festivals next year!
