The Q Awards, one of the UK’s most highly-regarded awards ceremonies presents seven public-voted awards each year along with a number of highly-coveted merit awards bestowed by Q Magazine on the night. Q have also announced this year’s post-awards show performers, IDLES and Wold Alice.
Voting is now open for Q Awards 2018 via the magazine’s official website.
Ted Kessler, Editor Q Magazine said: “I’m not being glib when I say that the date the Q staff most look forward to marking off the calendar is not their birthdays, nor even their annual holidays, it’s the Q Awards. Because the Q Awards is not just more fun than those events – though it is that too – but it’s our chance to gather together under the Roundhouse’s famous dome the most notable music makers from across genres and eras and thank them for the music that they continue to make. So I’m very excited to share this year’s date with everyone.
“Music’s tail is longer than ever. There’s so many ways to hear it now, but fewer places that filter the good stuff and tells you its story. We at Q feel that is our mission. The annual Q Awards is where we see that monthly quest made flesh for one night only, it’s where today’s newest stars get to be applauded by the great musical gods – and vice versa. I’m also really happy to have two of Britain’s most vibrant young live acts, in the shape of recent cover stars Wolf Alice and their maximum-aggro support Idles, performing after the awards. It’s going to be a brilliant night and I can’t wait to share the talent we have nominated and on the guestlist…But I must. I’ll be back in September with news about that.”
