The Heavy Music Awards is to be televised on Scuzz for a second year, following the channel’s appointment as Broadcast Partner for 2018.

Marking its 15th anniversary this year, the Sony-owned TV station will air the second HMAs on August 23, at KOKO, London and will once again build up to the event with a series of one-hour finalists shows.

Alex Herron, Senior Channel Manager at Sony Pictures Entertainment, who manages Scuzz on Sky 367 and Freesat 502, said: “It was a privilege to be on the HMAs maiden voyage and we’re stoked to return as Broadcast Partner this year.

“I look forward to seeing just how much this project can grow this time around – particularly in terms of the panel, the talent pool, and how we are upping the ante with the main event coverage on Scuzz TV.”



HMAs co-founder Dave Bradley said: “We are so pleased to have secured a new deal with Scuzz to air our second show.

“Last year fans tuned in in their droves to see the likes of Architects and Enter Shikari pick up awards on what was a memorable night for this great scene. We have some really exciting plans for the HMAs in 2018 and we’re thrilled that Scuzz are continuing with us on our journey to recognise the best that heavy music has to offer.”
