AIM Independent Music Awards
Many an awards show hands out gongs to the best-selling or priority artists, but the indies have always measured success a little differently. The AIM Independent Music Awards recognises the real heroes of music; those who do things their own way, make phenomenal music and inspire us all with their creativity, commitment & brilliance.
Now in our third year, the AIM Awards is proud to have honoured a fantastic array of independent artists, labels and industry figures such as: Björk, Adele, Edwyn Collins, 4AD, The Prodigy, Stolen Recordings, Frank Turner, Enter Shikari, Black Butter Records, First Aid Kit, Alt-J, SBTRKT, John Robb, Daniel Miller (Mute), Laurence Bell (Domino), 65daysofstatic & many, many more.
The 2013 AIM Independent Music Awards will take place on 3rd September, at The Brewery in London, hosted by indie champions Steve Lamacq (BBC 6Music) and Huw Stephens (Radio 1).
