Manchester’s Gorilla will play host on the 25th of April 2018 to Heavy Music Awards where, at this launch event, the shortlist for the awards will be revealed. A full line-up of bands playing at the event will be announced shortly.
This launch event, of course, is the precursor to the second annual Heavy Music Awards. This year’s incarnation of the awards show will be held at London’s prestigious KOKO on the 23rd of August which will see industry personnel rub shoulders with artists and a select-few lucky fans. To be in with a chance of picking up a pair of tickets, fans simply need to sign up to the HMA mailing list.
HMA’s co-founder Andy Pritchard said:
We already know that the HMA audience is truly global – we’ve welcomed visitors from over 160 countries to the website since we launched in March – many of them to vote for the HMA17 winners – and our judging panel is based all over the world.
With that in mind, we’ve been building a programme for 2018 that looks to bring this celebration of heavy music out of the capital and onto the doorstep of fans who share this passion for heavy music.
The team at Gorilla absolutely share our goal of spreading a positive message as far as possible, and shining a light on some incredibly talented individuals and artists.
