Songlines Music Awards 2022

Now in their 14th year, the Songlines Music Awards celebrate the wealth of musical talent across the world. See the video below of the recent Songlines Music Awards 2021 ceremony presented by Cerys Matthews and with live performances from all the winners.

Voting for the 2022 Awards is now open. From a shortlist of the Top of the World albums throughout 2021 (issues #165 to #174 inclusive) you can vote for the Best Artist and Best Group award winners. Simply use the voting form below or follow this link.

Similar to last year’s awards, we also have five geographical categories based on the CD reviews sections in Songlines: Africa & Middle East; Americas; Europe; Asia & Pacific and Fusion. From albums reviewed throughout 2021, Songlines contributors will decide on four nominees from each of these five categories (announced April 8), with the eventual winners crowned on May 13 in the June 2022 issue (#178).

All Songlines readers and public voters will automatically be entered into a prize draw to win one of three pairs of tickets to WOMAD Charlton Park 2022 (July 28-31).

Don’t delay – have your say and be part of the Songlines Music Awards now! The deadline for voting is midnight (GMT) on January 31, 2022.
