We find it impossible not to get excited about music awards and with this year’s star-spangled Brit and NME ceremonies dominated by London artists — such as Adele and The Vaccines — there’s every reason to want a bit of the action.
Luckily this year you can join in. Tickets to attend the NME awards go on sale tomorrow morning, and tickets for a special Brit Awards Party in aid of War Child will be available from Saturday. Both feature unique performances from London’s best talent.
OK, you won’t be treading the red carpet (your mates don’t have to know that) but opportunities to see Florence Welch collaborate with the Horrors at the NME awards and Damon Albarn with Graham Coxon in their first show together since the phenomenal Blur reunion shows simply cannot be missed.
Tickets for the NME Awards @ Brixton Academy, 29 February are on sale 9am Friday 3 February through See Tickets.
The Brit Awards Party @ Shepherds Bush Empire, 19 February tickets on sale 9am Saturday 4 February through Ticket Web.
