Votes are still coming in for this years Cardiff Music Awards, however one category has received such unprecedented support that the organisers have already named the winner.
After an overwhelming response during the nomination process, we are happy to announce the winner of the Outstanding Contribution of the Year award in 2018 is the team behind Save Womanby Street.
Over a few months in 2017, Save Womanby St won the support of many, including politicians, by pulling together countless letters from the public written by music fans to get their issues raised by those in the right positions. These actions and responses meant that the campaign brought the music scene into a public light and the footfall to the venues in the city has grown significantly.
We hope the great work of Save Womanby Street continues, and we’re happy to award them the title of Outstanding Contribution of the Year in 2018.
Many congratulations to the organisers of the campaign which has had a significant effect for live music venues, not just in Cardiff but throughout Wales and the rest of the UK.
Votes are still being taken for the other categories and you can cast your vote here.
