Details about this year's Independent Music Awards have been announced. It's happening on September 3 at The Brewery in Clerkenwell.
Radio X's John Kennedy, our Head of Music Mike Walsh and our new recruit Danielle Perry are among the judges.
Alison Wenham, Chairman of AIM commented "Anyone who attended last year's event will know that there is no pretence around the AIM Awards - it's simply a brilliant show spotlighting some of the most talented artists and businesses around. And there is nothing else like it in the industry, a fact of which we are very proud. We intend to take the AIM awards to a new level each year, meaning that fans, artists and indies will benefit from the exposure we can now deliver."
Previous winners include Adele, The Prodigy, Alt-J and Edwyn Collins.
