Global has launched its own brand new Global Awards with stars like Sam Smith and Kasabian set for the inaugural ceremony in March 2018.
Launched this week by radio brand Global, the new ceremony will combine its diverse roster of stations – Capital, Capital XTRA, Heart, Classic FM, Smooth, Radio X, Gold and LBC – to create a platform to recognise the best in music, entertainment and news.
The ‘Too Good At Goodbyes’ hitmaker and the indie rock band – fronted by Tom Meighan – have already been confirmed for the event, which will take place on March 1, 2018 at London’s Hammersmith Eventim Apollo.
The likes of Rita Ora, Andrea Bocelli and Martin Garrix are also on the star-studded bill.
Ashley Tabor OBE, Global’s Founder & Executive President, said: “At Global, we’ve built some of the UK’s biggest radio stations and media brands.
“Through their reach, we’re in the privileged position of entertaining and engaging more than half the UK population every single week.
“This means we’re perfectly placed to create the biggest and best music and entertainment awards the UK has ever seen, supported by Global’s incredible listeners who will be voting for some of their favourite artists in popular categories.”
Recipients of Global Awards will be voted for by both the public and a panel of industry experts, with the full categories and longlists for the public vote being announced on Wednesday
