About the Awards

Since its inception in 2004, the UK Festival Awards has been dedicated to recognising and celebrating the collective accomplishments of the nation’s most beloved industry.

Across its 21 categories, the Awards acknowledges the achievements of organisers and suppliers in the fields of programming, production, innovation, emerging talent, marketing, hospitality, catering and more.

Each category has its shortlist and winner determined via a combination of public vote and industry judges, and for 2017 this methodology has been further refined to ensure that the prestige of these internationally recognised accolades continues to increase.

Following several years at The Roundhouse in London, the Awards’ 14th edition will move to a new home within the capital at The Printworks, taking place on November 30th 2017. We hope you’ll join us there for what’s set to be a revitalised ceremony that’s more inclusive and atmospheric than ever.

Festival Insights and the UK Festival Awards are proud to release the UK Festival Market Report 2017, an in-depth examination of consumer demographics, preferences and behaviour based on research undertaken from October – November 2016. The insights contained within the Report were gleaned from a sample of 8000 festival-goers who took part in the annual UK Festival Census, an extension of the UK Festival Awards’ voting platform.
Areas covered in the document include attendees’ opinions on ticket prices, improvements they’d like to see implemented at festival bars, what types of music they consume, their most prioritised amenities at festivals, and much more.

We hope you find the information useful.  If you would like to view the 2015/16 Market Report click here.
