DATE: 8TH NOVEMBER, 2005 (ONLINE-ONLY)

The second year of the UK Festival Awards, still run purely online, saw public votes increase almost three-fold to 30,000 with considerable media interest. The winners were presented with their awards at their offices or local pubs. Pressure from the industry for a ‘real party’ would result in the following year’s awards being staged as a live event for the first time.[hr]
