The NME Awards had different forms over the years – it started as a Pollwinners’ Concert in the 50s and continued like this 60s. From 1971 to 1993 it was a readers’ poll rather than a live event. What is important is that it has always been about one thing – recognizing and rewarding the very best in music.
