The Steve Strange Award Returns for a Second Year

We’re delighted to confirm the return of the popular Steve Strange Award for its second year. Introduced in honour of the late live agent and co-founder of X-Ray Touring Steve Strange, the award recognises a music act that is breaking through creative boundaries in the music industry, with the recipient of the prestigious award receiving a cash prize of £5,000. The winner will be revealed following this year’s festival on Monday 15th May.

Last year’s winner, Audiobooks, (pictured) said: “It was a wonderful surprise to win the Steve Strange award last year. Appropriately for an award created in Steve Strange’s honour, we are using the funds to help elevate the production of our live shows. Touring is not always easy for independent artists so help like this goes a long way.”
