Indie Mixtape Sponsors Best International Band Award at HMA18

Playlist brand Indie Mixtape is sponsoring the Best International Band award at HMA18.

Indie Mixtape is an eclectic community of music fans, industry insiders and obsessives whose mission is to shine a light on great music via their suite of playlists.

The company will present to the winner of the award from seven finalists including Code Orange, Converge, Mastodon, The Menzingers, Metallica, Parkway Drive and Trivium.

Like all great art, great music is created by mavericks and risk takers; typically personified by artists forging their own, independent path.

Indie Mixtape strives to encapsulate that spirit by acting as a stage for the music and as a venue for the adventurous listeners.

Indie Mixtape’s Laura Moat said: “We were thrilled when the HMAs approached us about supporting an award this year.

“Their passion and love for the scene is second to none and it’s great to be a part of that.

“The nominations this year illustrate how much amazing talent there is in the heavy community today and we couldn’t be prouder to be associated with such an incredible spread of acts and the event itself!”

HMA Co-Founder, Andy Pritchard, said: “Expanding the audience for the artists we’re all here to celebrate is a key part of our mission – and Indie Mixtape have a proven track record in building those followings, and helping fans discover amazing music. Indie Mixtape is a really exciting addition to the HMAs for 2018.”

The streaming world needs a trusted beacon for the intrepid explorers who care less about style and trends but instead focus on quality, depth and innovation.

Vibrant and fun, but committed and bold; Indie Mixtape is an authoritative voice steering its audience past the bland and every-day to find the brilliant and the extraordinary.

Indie Mixtape’s playlists are live on Spotify, Youtube, Apple Music & Deezer, plus Facebook, Twitter and Instagram.

Best International Band Sponsored By PPL

Music licensing company PPL has been announced as the sponsor of the Best International Band category at the Heavy Music Awards 2017.

A Day To Remember, Beartooth, Deftones, Every Time I Die, Ghost, Gojira and Metallica are challenging for the accolade, which will be decided by public vote.

The award will be presented by PPL on stage at House of Vans London on August 24.

Speaking about the HMAs, Peter Leathem, Chief Executive of PPL said: “We are delighted to support the Heavy Music Awards this year.

“Metal and all heavier forms of music are important to PPL, and it is a genre which has experienced unwavering loyalty from its fans for many decades.

“We look forward to celebrating the scene’s achievements on August 24.”

Founded in 1934, PPL collects money for tens of thousands of performers and record labels.

The organisation licenses recorded music in the UK when it is played in public or broadcast and ensures that revenue flows back to its members.

These include both independent and major record companies, together with performers ranging from emerging grassroots artists through to established session musicians and influential festival headliners.

Co-founder of the Heavy Music Awards, Andy Pritchard, said: “I struggle to think of anything more important in modern music than ensuring that emerging artists are rewarded for their work.

“PPL is such an important organisation in many ways and we are thrilled to welcome them to the Heavy Music Awards.”

PPL is separate to PRS for Music, a company which collects and distributes money on behalf of songwriters, composers and music publishers, for the use of their musical compositions and lyrics.
