Our partnership with The Heavy Music Awards

Published 27 February 2020


There’s so much talent in the heavy music scene right now – both on stage and behind the scenes in the studio and we’re thrilled to be involved in recognising it. We strongly believe in supporting musicians throughout their careers, and we hope our partnership enables more musicians to follow their passion and focus on making music.

Following its launch in March 2017, the Heavy Music Awards - the only fully independent, fully democratic programme of its kind on earth - has established itself as one of the most exciting events on the heavy music calendar, growing year on year.

The HMAs shine a spotlight on artists, producers, venues, festivals and designers who’s incredible talent deserves the attention of the wider world. To achieve this, they have a judging panel of several hundred key music industry figures nominating the finalists, before the public votes on the winners.

"We're delighted to welcome Allianz Musical Insurance back for the fourth annual Heavy Music Awards. For the huge number of artists and producers in our audience, protecting your equipment is protecting your livelihood - Allianz's services speak directly to those individuals, making this a perfect fit for the HMAs. And of course, we're excited to help Allianz share their story in what is a momentous year in the company's history too." Andy Pritchard, Heavy Music Awards co-founder

The Heavy Music Awards are now on 21st May 2020 at O2 Forum Kentish Town, London. #HMA20

We hope you will enjoy this clip from a concert livestreamed in November last year featuring the BSO performing Elgar’s Nimrod from The Variations on an Original Theme under the baton of David Hill MBE. The socially distanced orchestra lends a luminous quality to this performance of Elgar’s hauntingly beautiful music.
