Celebrating the remarkable array of musical talent from around the world
The awards, now in their 11th year, celebrate the remarkable array of musical talent from around the world covered in Songlines magazine throughout 2018 (issues #135-#144 inclusive).
Check out all of this year’s nominees on our Songlines Music Awards page.
The nominees in the geographical categories were chosen by our hotshot team of international contributors and the Best Artist and Best Group nominees were voted by you, the Songlines readers. The winners of the geographical categories will be announced in the June issue (#148, out May 10) and the rest of the winners, including the Newcomer and World Pioneer award winners, will be announced at the Songlines Music Awards ceremony this autumn.
The Songlines Music Awards 2019 compilation album is on sale from April 5 and features 20 tracks from all nominees of the five geographical categories. The album will be available to buy from all good record shops, and is available to order on Amazon now.
