UK Festival Awards 2022

The annual celebration of the UK festival industry returns this December, remaining the only festival focussed awards providing fans the opportunity to vote for their favourites.

To be held on 6 December at Manchester’s Escape to Freight Island, the UK Festival Awards presents the ideal opportunity for festival organisers and suppliers to get together and reflect on the past season while looking forward to the next. 

The awards themselves will be decided by either fan votes, an expert panel, or a combination of both in categories including: Best Major Festival, Outstanding Contribution and, for this year only, the Perfect Pivot Award, which acknowledges the festival business that applied its skills to alternative activities amid the COVID-19 pandemic.
