Songlines Music Awards 2016

Launched in 2008, the Songlines Music Awards celebrate and acknowledge the myriad of musical talents across the world, featured in Songlines magazine. For details of winners to date, check out the links above, and see our Songlines Music Awards 2015 winners' video below.

The public voting for the 2016 Awards in the Best Artist and Best Group categories is now closed.

This year we've also created five new geographical categories based on the CD reviews sections in Songlines: Africa & Middle East; Americas; Europe; Asia & South Pacific and Fusion. Eligible albums are those which were reviewed in Songlines last year (from issues #106-#114 inclusive) and have been voted on by Songlines contributors. The top four nominees from each of these five categories will be announced in the May issue (#117) on sale from April 1, with the winners, including Best Artist & Best Group, crowned on May 6 in the June 2016 issue (#118).

A compilation album featuring all nominated artists in the five geographical categories will be released on Monday April 4, 2016.
