Experience the Q Awards: the best in contemporary music
One of the UK's biggest and most exciting celebrations of music, the Q Awards have recognised hundreds of world-class artists for their achievements. Unlike the vast majority of top music awards, nominees are voted for by the readership of 'Q' magazine, resulting in an eclectic shortlist that reflects music as it is today. Now you can see the results come in live, with Q Awards tickets for purchase or sale on StubHub.
A dazzling evening of music and entertainment
Held every year in London, the Q Awards are one of the UK's largest and most prestigious music awards, hotly anticipated not only by artists and their managers but by music journalists and listeners all over the world. The influential magazine adopts a unique format for its awards ceremony, which sees nominees selected by its readers - there are no entry fees or manager's nominations here. The result is the astonishingly diverse Q Awards shortlist, which gives a unique indication of the state of the music scene today and proves that, even in the age of streaming, music lovers find it hugely important that their favourite artists should be publicly recognised for their work. After the nominations, comes the hard work of picking just one winner in each category, who is announced at the dazzling Q Awards show. Since 2016 the ceremony has been followed by an intimate gig, giving some lucky attendees the chance to experience their favourite artists up close. Get your Q Awards tickets now for a true once-in-a-lifetime event.
Meet the talented Q Awards shortlist artists
The Q Awards were first held in 1990 and have constantly been a barometer of extraordinary musical talent. Held at iconic London venues including the Abbey Road Studios, Camden Roundhouse and the Park Lane Ballroom, the Q Awards show is a glittering evening of music and entertainment royalty - plus the all-important readers of 'Q'. Markedly different from awards like the BRIT Awards and Mercury Prize, which tend to just reflect the achievement of one year, nomination for the Q Awards tends to encompass an entire lifetime's work. Q Awards categories include titles like 'Best Act in the World Today', 'Best Track' and 'Best Festival', while the 'Best Breakthrough Act' is lauded for celebrating exciting new artists (the 2018 shortlist featured Idles, Jorja Smith and Rejjie Snow). Enjoy a truly special evening in the company of incredible musicians: learn new names, see your favourites recognised and know that you are part of a totally one-off event. You'll find your Q Awards tickets to buy or sell on StubHub now.
