Newport City Radio’s Love Live Music Awards are back, bigger and better for 2024!

On Thursday 6th June, we invite you to join us for an unmissable celebration of live music from local artists across Newport and surrounding areas.


Nominations are open!

Nominations are now open. We know that nominating can sometimes be challenging, deciding which category to nominate an artist for. Which is why we’ve made it simple. We just need to know who you want to nominate and how we can view them for judging. We will liaise with nominees to see which award categories they wish to be considered for.
