2014 Boston Music Awards

Now entering it’s 27th year, the event itself is less of a traditional awards show and more of a rolling party with multiple stages and extended sets from nominated artists. This year’s event will be at the Revere Hotel in Boston on December 14th. We are ecstatic about this year’s LINEUP WHICH WILL BE ANNOUNCED IN NOVEMBER.

Once again, the BMAs will feature some of the region’s most compelling emerging and established talent from Garage to Rock to Pop to Blues, Metal, Punk, Indie, Americana, International, Jazz, Hip Hop, RNB, Electronic, Folk and everything in between. The party will roll! We look forward to seeing you there and celebrating the collective accomplishments of our unique and immensely talented music scene.

Who is eligible for a Boston Music Award?

A musician, producer or industry professional who has strong ties to New England. We define strong ties as someone who is a New England native or has lived here for a substantial period of time who has actively worked or is actively working here. (John Mayer who went to Berklee for one year does not qualify). The timeframe for consideration for this year’s awards are November 1, 2013 to October 1, 2014.

Who votes for the winners?

Once the ballot is created, the Academy votes for the winners. The Academy vote counts for 2/3, while the online public vote counts 1/3. At the Sound of Our Town event on October 4th we will be announcing the nominees and open up voting. If you are at the Sound of Our Town event, your vote will be counted as 2/3 for that day only.
