European Festival Awards

Nominations are open for this year’s Festival Awards Europe, which means it’s time to decide which festivals you think are the best in Europe. I probably didn’t need to explain that. Last year’s awards saw almost 200 festivals from 32 countries nominated, with over 350,000 votes in total. Organisers are hoping for an even bigger turnout this year, ahead of the ceremony on 11 Jan at the Eurosonic Noorderslas festival and conference in the Netherlands.

Festival Awards MD James Drury told CMU: “The European Festival Awards is a celebration of the incredibly diverse festival industry across the continent, and I’m looking forward to welcoming events from every country to take part. Last year’s incredible number of voters shows just how much passion fans have for these events and artists and it’s time for them to have their say on their favourites again”.

Festivals can nominate themselves now at this URL before public voting opens on 24 Oct.
