The Heavy Music Awards will move to May for its fourth annual celebration, returning once again to London’s 2,300 capacity O2 Forum Kentish Town on Thursday 21 May 2020.
Having taken place in late August from 2017 to 2019, the event is now situated at the front end of the European festival season, and closer to the previous calendar year which forms the basic criteria for entry.
HMAs co-founder Dave Bradley said, “HMA19 was a huge success at the O2 Forum – the entire team is superb and the venue worked perfectly for the Heavy Music Awards. We’re excited to return to Kentish Town with some great new additions to the day to create an even more memorable event for attendees, and even more value for our amazing sponsors and supporters.”
With the new timetable, the nominations and public voting process will now take place much earlier in the year. Exact dates – as well as the line-up for HMA20 and details of the Young Photographer of the Year 2020 competition – will be announced in due course.
