Heavy Music Awards 2018 to be Televised on Scuzz

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.”

Heavy Music Awards Agree TV Deal with Scuzz

The first Heavy Music Awards is to be televised following the appointment of Scuzz as ‘Broadcast Partner’ for the event.

Celebrating its 14th year this month, the Sony-owned channel has signed up to air the first HMAs on August 24, and will build up to the event in London with a series of one-hour finalist’s shows.

Alex Herron, Senior Channel Manager at Sony Pictures Entertainment, has worked in music TV for over ten years producing music artist content and overseeing several channels including Scuzz.

“It’s great to see an independent initiative such as the HMAs added to the rock eco-system,” he revealed.

“An event like this is only going to reinforce, promote and champion a genre which deserves more attention here in the UK. It’s an honour to be involved in the maiden event.”

HMAs co-founder Andy Pritchard says teaming up with Scuzz will bring the Awards straight to true fans across the UK.

He added: “The HMAs team has worked hard to build a judging panel of over 100 industry heavyweights that offers a true cross-section of heavy music in 2017 – but the winners are ultimately going to be decided by the fans, and that is what makes the HMAs such an exciting journey.

“This partnership with Scuzz will give viewers a timely reminder of the finalists, in addition to the best of the action from the big night on the UK’s finest heavy music TV station. Everyone involved with the scheme stands to benefit from the huge exposure offered by this deal.

“We are absolutely delighted to have Scuzz on-board with the HMAs.”
