BT Digital Music Awards

For the third year, The Roundhouse in London will be the host to the BT Digital Music Awards, which promises to be an evening of entertainment, music and glamour. It is an evening that is not only attended by members of the music industry, but by fans who are able to secure themselves tickets to the event. The nominees for this year have been shortlisted, and award winners are selected through the votes made by music enthusiasts and industry players. The 2010 BT Digital Music Awards will be presenting celebrity performances and extraordinary music line-ups.

Their efforts will be rewarded this year with performances by musicians such as Beardyman, Sugababes, Fightstar and British Sea Power, as well as being able to see their favorite bands receive their awards.
