Arctic Monkeys and Arcade Fire have both added a place on the shortlist for Headliner Of The Year at the 2014 European Festival Awards to the same nomination they received for the UK Festival Awards earlier this month.
2014 sales on vinyl in the UK have surpassed last year’s total, which in itself was a record-breaking year for the format.
Arctic Monkeys picked up the Independent Album Of The Year prize thanks to the 2013 LP ‘AM‘ while their label Domino won Independent Label Of The Year at last night’s AIM Awards.
The great British festival.
A right of passage if ever there was one. Music. Music and beer (copious amounts thereof, this is Yorkshire after all). Music and food (patchy quality and only two groups: meat and carbs, this is Yorkshire after all).
Music and friends (or just speaking to anyone who will listen, this is Yorkshire after all). Music and rain (well this is Yorkshire after all). And most importantly music and mud (again, this is Yorkshire after all).
Day after day of music and mud; the very essence of a British summer. After a while it becomes almost impossible to shake the feeling that you are constantly downhill from dysentery.
Full concert presented by BBC Three.
The nominations for the fourth annual AIM Independent Music Awards have been revealed, with Arctic Monkeys and London Grammar looking set to dominate the ceremony when it takes place at The Brewery in London on September 2nd.
