Band of the Year 2020

Every November since 2015 we have celebrated our year by calling a Band of the Year.

November 2019 you crowned Scarlet Rebels as Band of the Year and they followed the footsteps of The Virginmarys (2018), Those Damn Crows (2017), Massive Wagons (2016) and The Quireboys (2015). But who will be next?

Below is a list of the artists that have done interviews or have had new interview material aired during the year. Giving time is the basis for being on the list.

Over the course of the last 12 months, there have been listener and website votes for band of the month. This final vote features all the bands that have appeared on the monthly votes at some point during the year.

This is a vote over time not a simple popularity contest and it is run a bit like a football league. For each monthly vote, there is a score 1-25 for where bands came in that particular vote. This final vote being a bigger one there will be a score 1-50 for the bands that rank in the top 50. This system is designed to minimise spam voting and to ensure that:

  • the full year is evenly represented, every month or season of the year has critical weighting so the result is a reflection on the year.
  • The outcome is not simply a reflection of size. Whilst a bigger band could win it outright on the last vote, smaller acts can build up momentum over the course of the year. On balance, there is a level playing field for everyone.
  • The regular listeners of the Friday show have a big say. Whilst anyone can have a vote, the people that are part of what we do each Friday get to vote through the year (and anyone can be part of the Friday show). These are people that shape what we do and their voice needs to be heard.

Do have your say below, you may vote for up to three artists. The vote remains open until 10am on Friday 6th November.
