This year’s Heavy Music Awards are going virtual. Organizers revealed the award show is being moved to an online event due to the ongoing pandemic.
The show will air on Twitch at 8:30 PM BST/3 PM ET on Thursday, September 3rd. Presented from Heavy Music Awards’ London offices, the show will be hosted by Kerrang! Radio presenters Sophie K and Jon Mahon. They will also host the pre-show, while the official aftershow will start at 10:30 PM BST/5:30 PM ET on the Primordial Radio Twitch channel, with presenters Moose and Pete welcoming live guests to chat about the winners and performances.
The show will feature exclusive performances from The Hunna, Holding Absence, Heart Of A Coward, Wargasm, Coldbones and HAWXX.
Heavy Music Awards co-founder Dave Bradley said, “The adversity facing live music right now made us even more determined to keep the HMAs alive. We believe it’s more important than ever to shout as loud as we can about the exceptional talent across heavy music – from the artists to the hard working teams behind the scenes – and we are proud to do our part to keep the wheels turning until normality returns.”
