Songlines Music Awards 2014
Launched in 2008, the Songlines Music Awards celebrate and acknowledge the myriad of musical talent across the world that has been featured in Songlines magazine. For details of winners to date, check out the links above, and see below for highlights of our recent Songlines Music Awards 2013 winners' concert at The Barbican.
The four categories are: Best Artist, Best Group, Cross-Cultural Collaboration, and Newcomer. Eligible artists are those who had albums reviewed in Songlines during 2013 (from issues #90 to #97 inclusive). The public voting ended on January 31, 2014.
The top four in each category from the public vote gives us the nominations, which will be published in Songlines #99 (April/May 2014 - on sale from March 14). The Songlines Music Awards jury will then select the winners which will be announced in the 100th edition of Songlines (June 2014 - on sale from April 25).
