Kerrang! 2016 Award nominees revealed

Vote for your favourite act now!

Kerrang! 2016 Awards has revealed its definitive shortlist of rock royalty, which are leading the nominations this year. This year the event which takes place in June at the Troxy will be hosted by Justin Hawkins from the Darkness and Benji Webb from Skindred. This year, for the first time, the Kerrang! Awards will be teaming up with Help Musicians UK (HMUK), the country’s leading music charity for a groundbreaking partnership.

Voting is now open here.

As Chief Executive, Richard Robinson, explains: “If you’ve got a reputation for turning your amps up to ELEVEN, now’s the time to think about how your hearing is suffering and how best to protect it. Help Musicians UK is absolutely delighted to be at the Kerrang! Awards and we’ll be at the centre of the mayhem – but we might have a few slightly serious messages too. As the UK’s leading music charity we’re so pleased Kerrang! have let us in and you’ll hear more about us in the magazine in coming months.”
