Best of the British

Channel U Best of British Awards 2005

No its not at Scala or Bagleys which is now known as Canvas, its not even drum and bass, for all you confused jungalists its a new brand flex, you see me.

Channel U sky digital #467 will be launching the inaugural “Best of British” urban music event at London’s Shepherds Bush Empire 15th October 2005.

Since the channel’s launch in 2003, Channel U has rapidly become synonymous with the raw cutting edge of the UK urban music scene. The plaudits have rained down from industry aficionados and artists alike with the likes of Mercury Music prize winner Dizzee Rascal publicly acknowledging the major contribution the channel has made to kick starting his career and Guy Moot (Head of UK and European publishing for EMI) recognizing the platform we have provided for new UK talent to break through.

Therefore, it is with great pleasure that we announce this new showpiece event which will celebrate the strength of the current UK urban scene and honour its chief ambassador’s.

There will be 30 short listed nominees that have been the most popular played videos during the past year from September 2004 to August 2005. Channel U viewers will have the chance to vote for their favourite artists’ video where the top 15 will perform at the event and receive a Best of British Award in recognition of their talents. With a 100% pure UK line up of fifteen of the most popular artists which have performed for the Channel over the past year plus a guest DJ set from some of the best DJ’s in the country. The event will be more than just big. It will be massive! The whole line up will guarantee a sell out 2000 crowd at one of the most popular gig venues in the capital.

Make no mistake, this event will be the only event showcasing purely British talent and is set to become the hottest ticket in the UK urban music calendar.
some would say the days of MTV Base are being counted.
