Vote For the AIM Best Live Act 2014 Now!

If there’s any chance to give bands a right royal pat on the back for a smashing live show, you can usually count us in.

So when the opportunity arose to work with the lovely folks at AIM, the champions of all things musical & independent, we jumped at it like Busted circa 2002. We’re chuffed to be sponsoring this year’s Best Live Act award – celebrating the best of the bands that have hit the road in the past year.

The past month has seen a raft of nominations for artists big & small vying for top spot – based everywhere from France to Mexico – and we’re excited to announce the final shortlist below! Previous winners have included Enter Shikari, The Prodigy and Frank Turner, so be sure to vote and make sure that it’s one of your favourite acts that’s this year’s grand victor! The acts below have slogged away for months, traversing far off lands in the back of a sweaty tour van – but all you need to do is scroll down, and choose the live act that’s drawn you into the moshpit, made the hair stand up on the back of your neck, or all round blown your socks off with their live show.

The voting is open until 5pm on June 30th BST. The final nominees will be announced in August, and the winner will be revealed at the AIM Awards ceremony in London on the 2nd September 2014.

So what you are waiting for? Support your favourite live band and vote now!
