JUST 3 DAYS TO GO! Surely this was the greatest UK Festival Awards moment of all time - last year, when Festival Number 6
co-founder Alex Hardee accepted the first award of the night, Best New Festival, and - without missing a beat - proposed on-stage to his girlfriend in the audience. And she said yes.
WE CAN'T GET NO SLEEP, we're so excited with just 4 days to go! Speaking of which, here's a pic of Faithless
star Sister Bliss
collecting their award for Best Festival Dance Act at KoKo back in 2007.
Just found this photo from last year - Live Nation UK
chief John Probyn collecting the Lifetime Achievement Award onstage with the Download Festival
Dog. You don't get that at The Brits!
IT'S JUST 5 DAYS AWAY! Here's one of our favourite moments of all. T in the Park
won the award for 'Most Memorable Moment' in 2007, in honour of a bloke dressed up as Spider-Man
climbing the lighting rig during Snow Patrol
's set. We couldn't just let them collect it withouts sending Spider Man onstage to steal it off them, could we? :)
JUST 6 DAYS TO GO!! Here's a nostalgic piccie of Biffy Clyro
collecting their award for Best Festival Rock Act at the 2008 Awards. This year sees them shortlisted for Best Headline Act, for their performance at Reading Festival
and Leeds Festival
. Who will it be? 'Mon the Biffy!
Just 8 days to go now! This was a mega awesome moment from last year's event when New Order
rocked up to collect their award for 'Best Headline Act' in honour of their performance at Festival Number 6
that year. Who will it be this year?
We're looking back at some classic UK Festival Awards moments of the last 10 years. This photo captures the first live performance ever to take place at the UKFA - festival legends The Levellers
, who blew the roof off the Islington Academy in 2006 and (we hear) picked up a lot of festival bookings the following summer as a result! :) #UKFAis10
We're looking back at some classic UKFA moments over the past 10 years. This image of Glastonbury Festival
chief Michael Eavis larking about on-stage with The Cuban Brothers
at KoKo during the 2006 UK Festival Awards is one that will always bring a fond smile to our faces. #UKFAis10
Interesting figures here. We'll be revealing the results of our UK Festival Market Report on December 2 at the UK Festival Conference... Stay tuned!Recession has made festival goers more demanding
yougov.co.ukYouGov’s annual music festivals report reveals that festival goers are becoming choosier and more demanding about certain elements of the festival experience. For instance, the number of people who say they would “blind book” a festival without knowing the full line-up has declined...
Counting down to our 10th Birthday, we remember some classic moments over the years - like the time we presented T in the Park
boss Geoff Ellis with 2 awards in 2005. The first UKFA event was staged the following year in 2006. Before this we had to drive around the UK giving out the gongs to the winners in their offices and local pubs! #UKFAis10
