A packed out Troxy Theatre played host to the very first Unsigned Music Awards in London on Thursday last night and what a night it was.

Leading figures from across the UK’s music and entertainment industry along with the nominees, guests and all attendees were treated to A game live performances from Dani Sylvia, Elle Exxe, AKS, Skies, Chasing Cadence, Hunter & The Bear, Broken Witt Rebels, Alex Francis and Darby Ward. The show boasted a flawless AV production whilst effortlessly presented by Radio 1’s Chris Stark and TV’s Laura Whitmore, who was on top form after pulling out of Strictly last week after injuring her ankle.

Sponsors Liquiproof and media partners Unilad were on hand creating content at the show, all of which helped #UMA16 trending hard on Twitter. Other partners Jack Daniels, Marshall Amps and Mood Media also aided in making the night a great success.

With the first show now under their belt, the UMA team aim to build on the fantastic response so far by making this a go-to date in the music calendar.
