Band of the Year 2017
December 2017: For the third year running we finished another year celebrating some of the landmark achievements of 2017.
More than 25,000 people had a say in our ‘band of the year 2017’ through two rounds of voting over six weeks. More than simply a generic popularity contest, the rankings of the 167 shortlisted bands blended results from two public web votes, three live radio votes, listen again figures for our interviews over 12 months, recognition for bands that had achieved album of the month reviews, plus monthly play listings and exclusives from the Friday rock show over the course of 2017. Every act that gives us an interview during the year is on the very long shortlist and 73% of the final verdict is in the hands of followers and Friday rock show listeners.
Any band that wants to be on the list for 2018, get in touch and book in for a Great Music Stories interview!
