It takes a certain level of star quality to shine in a room that includes Bono, Noel Gallagher, Nile Rodgers, The Kinks, The Streets and Paul Weller. At last year’s Q Awards, singer-songwriter Nadine Shah did such a great job presenting the Lifetime Achievement Award to Suede’s Brett Anderson that we’ve invited her to host this year’s ceremony.
Last year a galaxy of stars, including Paul Weller, Bono, Noel Gallagher, The Kinks, The Streets, Suede, Stefflon Don, Underworld and many more, descended on the Roundhouse in London for the annual Q Awards – the most exclusive event in the music calendar. This year’s ceremony, which takes place on 16 October at the Roundhouse, promises the same degree of star-studded pageantry and live music thrills. Biffy Clyro will perform a special Q Awards gig the night before, and another super-exciting show will be announced mid-September. And what’s more, help us choose the winners from this year’s categories and you could win a pair of tickets to the event.
