On December 6th the UK festivals that are putting their heads above the crowd will be celebrated and one festival that scored the highest in the AGF’s UK assessments during summer 2022 will be crowned the winner.

To be held 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 whilst looking forward to the next; the awards themselves have been decided by either fan votes, expert panel, or a combination of both in categories including Best Major Festival, Outstanding Contribution and, for one year only, the Perfect Pivot Award for the festival business that applied its skills to alternative activity during the Covid closure. With awards ranging from grassroots to large and categories for family and non-music festivals. The awards have received well over 400 entries and 190,000 fan votes, with fans deciding the outcome of more categories than ever.
