The Heavy Music Awards has found a new home for 2023.

Making a jump from the 2,300 capacity O2 Forum Kentish Town where it was hosted this summer, next year it will take over the 12, 500 capacity OVO Arena Wembley in London on May 26. Early bird tickets are on sale now, and start from £22.50.

Beginning in 2017 at the 850-cap House Of Vans, the Heavy Music Awards recognises the best artists, events, photographers, designers, producers and more. The finalists are decided by a panel of several hundred industry insiders, with the results left to a public vote. Co-organisers Dave Bradley and Andy Pritchard of the Heavy Group said: 

“We are immensely proud to be taking the Heavy Music Awards to OVO Arena Wembley, unquestionably one of the most prestigious music venues on earth. We have worked tirelessly over the last six years to build the HMAs into a platform befitting a scene bursting with talent and creativity. By moving to OVO Arena Wembley, we’re realising our ambition to create an event that will recognise both emerging and established talent in the biggest possible way. We cannot wait to welcome artists, industry and fans to this spectacular arena in May for what we promise will be an unforgettable evening, and a great way to kick off another epic summer of music.”

VP and General Manager of the OVO Arena Wembley, John Drury also commented: 

“We couldn’t be more delighted to be welcoming the Heavy Music Awards to their new home at the OVO Arena Wembley. Heavy Group have created a vital and fan-focussed event that has gone from strength to strength in a short space of time and we’re honoured to be part of their next chapter. As an arena, we welcome established bands and artists back to  OVO Arena Wembley all the time, but we also host many first-time headliners every year. No doubt some of the emerging talent championed by the Heavy Music Awards will return to the OVO Arena  OVO Arena Wembley for their own headline shows soon!”

M. Shawn Crahan of Slipknot added: “The HMAs has demonstrated their commitment to our culture representing the best in our community with a continued focus on spotlighting emerging artists.”
