Our friends at AU Magazine and The Oh Yeah Music Centre, with the support of Belfast City Council, Invest NI and the NI Tourist Board, are to stage the first ever Northern Ireland Music Awards at the Ulster Hall on 2nd November. Voted for by a broad range of stakeholders in NI music, the awards will recognise the diverse and high level of talent that heralds from the region. Hosted by MCs Rigsy (BBC Across The Line) and Emma Fitzpatrick (Citybeat), the event will also feature a number of performances from our most prominent Northern Irish acts, including And So I Watch You From Afar, General Fiasco (pictured), Stiff Little Fingers and more. Tickets for the awards, priced £12, are on sale from the Ulster Hall. We wish them well.
