Bay Music Awards in Malta
The annual Bay Music Awards (BMA’s) were held at the Bay Arena in St Julians on 12th December, featuring home-grown musical talent from Malta and Gozo. Hosted by Dorian Cassar and Nayhan D, the BMA’s proved a big hit, especially with ticket prices being kept at €15 for the “Screamer” tickets.
Big winners from the event were Red Electrik, taking both the Best Band award and the Raise the Roof award. For the first time in its history bands and solo artists at the Bay Music Awards played live instead of using pre recorded tracks. This has got to be the way forward and I hope the following awards continue with live music.
The theme for this year’s event was “Party like it is the end of the World” with the awards being held on 12 December 2012, (12,12,12) a date when the end of the world was predicted. Luckily, the world has continued and we can do the BMA’s again next year!!
