Kerrang! Awards 2022

The Kerrang! Awards took place last night in London’s glittering Shoreditch Town Hall, seeing the great and the good of rock and metal music showered with praise.

“The alternative music scene is more exciting than ever in 2022, and this year’s Kerrang! Awards underlines our commitment to supporting new music and championing the underdogs”, says Kerrang! Editor Luke Morton.

“I’m so proud to introduce three new categories that strike at the heart of the underground and the alternative community, while also recognising the stadium-conquering legends who have paved the way and make the alt scene the most inspiring place to be right now. Our world is alive with positive change – get on board”.
