In Photos: Pure Rawk Awards 2015
The Pure Rawk Awards took place on Friday 6th March at the Boston Music Room in London. Bands and gig go-ers from all over the country ventured to Tufnell Park for the celebration of new, independent and underground bands.
“The amount of votes in the Awards have increased year on year” says PureRawk.com Editor Nix Cooper. “In 2006 we started with 150 votes, in 2015 we’re now up to 14,676 throughout the whole process. It’s great that so many people get involved. Even though there are ‘winners’ as decided by our readers and the public, the fact of just being nominated is quite special. It’s about a community and the numbers even in our yearly awards show it’s fairly healthy at this level.”
The landscape of the music industry has changed over the past few years – there are so many more bands going DIY due to various reasons. The Awards also honour DJs, music venues and promoters.
We’ve already got a date for the next PRA’s so slap Saturday 6th March 2016 in your diaries. It will also be our tenth anniversary so we’re organising a lineup that reflects that. We’ll be back at the same place!
