Come celebrate with us!

The Industry Awards Gala is the season finalé of Music & Media seminar program, a glorious celebration that honours the distinguished achievements in the Finnish music industry community. It will be celebrated for the 24th time at Tampere-talo, Friday 4th October.

Each Music & Media delegate registering to the event on Wednesday 18th September 2019 at 16:00 the latest gets one vote. Personalized link will be sent to each registrant by email within two working days of the registration. The vote closes on Wednesday 18th September 2019 at 23:59.

The Industry Awards Gala is the place where we award the Media Personality, Record Label and Festival of the Year – among many others. The Industry Awards acknowledgements are also given on a more unusual basis: in recent years we’ve wanted to reward for example the Supporter and Future Visionary of the Year. Diverse Lifetime Achievement Award and Tampere Music Award are also awarded annually.
