UK Festival Awards 2005 are go!

07 October 2005

The nominations for the UK Festivals Awards 2005 have been unveiled - now it's down to you. Vote for your favourite bands, festivals, live moments, and much more from next week...

Presented by Virtual Festivals, in association with BBC 6 Music, Carling Live.com and Oxfam Generation Why?

As the sun sets on the greatest ever year of live music, the UK Festival Awards returns for the second time to celebrate the incredible success of this summer's outdoor music scene. 

Launched by Virtual Festivals last year to great acclaim, the awards are voted for by the public and acknowledged industry-wide as recognition of the contribution made by event organisers, artists and festival goers to the music industry and popular culture.

Last year more than 17,000 people voted Glastonbury, Download, T In The Park, Get Loaded, Franz Ferdinand and Muse among the big winners. Click here for more on the UK Festival Awards 2004.

This time round a number of new categories have been added to allow for the increase in size and popularity of festivals, the vast age range that festivals now attract, and also to acknowledge a variety of emerging trends.

There are now 20 awards up for grabs, with new categories including Cult Following (for niche events catering for specific tastes or lifestyles), Best Family Festival and Best Official Website.

And to celebrate bigger line-ups and increasing musical diversification across the major festivals, the artist awards have also expanded to include Best Festival Headliner, Best Live Rock Act, Best Live Dance Act, Best Pop Act, Best Urban Act, and Festival Feel-Good Act.

Accounting for the radically contrasting sizes of the UKs various festivals, votes this year will be weighted by event capacity, thus allowing for fairer comparison. So should a fledgling contender such as the Glade festival be short listed in the same category against an established giant like Glastonbury it will have a fighting chance.
