This Friday will see the first ever awards show celebrating music in the North East come to Newcastle, in the form of the Ubeat Music Awards.
The televised ceremony, in partnership with Made in Tyne and Wear and sponsored by Filthy’s Newcastle, will give a big musical pat on the back to the cream of the North East music scene, with awards being given out for Solo Male, Female, Best Band and a host of others. The show will be taking place at the NE6 Suite and will be shown on Freeview, Sky and Virgin. 90 nominees will battle it out in 11 categories, with 12 brilliant performances entertaining fans and press alike.
Acts such as The Waiters, fresh off a UK tour, and Abi Garrido, who recently supported Billy Ocean and will perform at the year’s Metro Radio Christmas Live, will be in attendance and nominees include X Factor stars Josh Daniel and Geoff Mull.
We’ll be down there on the night LIVE Tweeting @toonmanblog so be sure to keep up with all the drama. Here’s hoping nobody pulls a Kanye! *Prays somebody pulls a Kanye*
