This year marked the debut of what will now be our annual Reader Awards, a time for you the reader to cast your opinions our way on how you have found various things across the board of the music industry for the past 12 months. It was also a chance for those of you in bands to get your fanbase to let us know just why we should all take notice of you.
We asked you what you feel have been the best releases, most noteworthy bands, notable record labels, the best venues the UK has to offer and even to help offer some foresight to some bright stars that 2013 will offer us.
Now, the results for this year have been compiled and are all listed below. Remember, if you’re not happy with the results, they are all down to what you readers have provided us. Feel free to discuss and let us know your thoughts in the comments below:
