The evening of headphone fun will take place at Islington Academy, London, on Friday, 26 September - the same day voting for the awards goes live.
Virtual Festivals DJs will be spinning a set of festival anthems so expect everything from Foals to Fink and Babyhead to Motorhead, alongside the usual antics from the Headphone Disco DJs. More on them HERE.
The night will hopefully help jog a few memories before fans are invited to vote for the best festivals, bands, anthems and moments of the year.
And if the emotion of it all gets too much, you can always just take off your headphones and reminisce with your mates in stunned silence!
With silent parties sweeping the festival scene over the last few years we could think of no better way to launch the UK Festival Awards 2008.
The UK Festival Awards are the only gongs voted entirely by fans to recognise the behind-the-scenes efforts of everyone involved on the festival scene.
Hosted by Virtual Festivals, an awards ceremony will take place on 30 October at a prestigious London venue, bringing the industry together for a big knees up to celebrate the year. Find out more HERE.
But first we need your votes to decide the winners. Not only could you win tickets to the awards show, you could also win our Dream Summer ticket to every award winning festival in 2009.
Keep posted for more details - or even better come party with us at Headphone Disco... We'll see you at the front.
