NME Awards Tour
The NME Awards Tour began during the Britpop era, 1995 and has been sponsored by Shockwaves over the years. The tour showcases upcoming talent across the indie and alternative music scene.
The tour has always been highly successful, with NME Awards Tour tickets selling out in record time.
The NME Awards Tour has been a stepping-stone for many successful acts today such as the Stereophonics, Keiser Chiefs, Bloc Party, Florence and the Machine, Friendly Fires and biggest of all: Coldplay.
