AIM Awards move to the Brewery following inaugural event's success

The Association of Independent Music (AIM) is relocating its awards ceremony to a larger venue following the success of the inaugural event last year.

With 650 guests, the event is to double in size in response to the overwhelming interest in 2011's event held at Floridita in Wardour Street. This year the AIM Awards will be held on 29 October at the Brewery on Chiswell Street.

BBC 6Music's Steve Lamacq and BBC Radio 1's Huw Stephens will host the ceremony in which 15 awards will be presented, including Independent Breakthrough of the Year, Best Small Label, Best Live Act and Outstanding Contribution to Music, previously won by Björk.

The Brewery has previously played host to a number of music awards including the Kerrangs! and The Mojo Awards.

Chairman and chief executive of AIM, Alison Wenham, commented: "The first AIM Awards was a fantastic event for the artists and companies whose hard work was finally recognised by their peers.

"We hope that as the awards show grows in size and stature, the wider industry will take note of the unique contribution the indie sector makes to the quality and diversity of the British Music Industry."
