Paddy Wins ‘Promoter Of The Year’ Award

Small Man Wins Massive At UK Festival Awards

Christmas came early at Glasgowbury with festival founder Paddy Glasgow winning the ‘Promoter Of The Year’ Award at this year’s UK Festival Awards. The announcement was made at the UK Festival Awards ceremony at The Roundhouse, London on December 2nd   that was presented by Phil Jupitus [BBC Radio 2, Never Mind The Buzzcocks].

Reflecting on the award, Paddy Glasgow said: “It’s a great achievement for a pair of wellies to go over to London town and lift the award. On a serious note, it’s fantastic to be awarded such an accolade, particularly knowing that it has been chosen by your peers within the festival and events industry. I’m looking forward to our next venture that is Glasgowbury’s Cornstore Creative Hub in Draperstown in which we will continue to work with many creative individuals for many years to come. Look out for Small But MASSIVE, we may appear near you!”

The award, chosen by the UK Festival Awards panel and industry professionals saw Paddy in the last 8 from a list of 200 others. Other nominees included:

  • AEG Live
  • Count of Ten (Y Not, Truck, Brownstock, Tramlines)
  • Creamfields
  • Isle of Wight Festival team
  • Spring Music (Bearded Theory)
  • Rob Da Bank
  • Zoo Project Festival team

Check out tomorrow’s Daily Mirror [NI] for a feature on Paddy and the awards including interviews with the man himself and the UK Festival Awards director James Drury on why he won.

Paddy will also be on Stephen McCauley’s Electric Mainline show tonight [Thursday December 5th] at 7pm on BBC Radio Foyle discussing the award and what we are doing now post-festival.

We would like to take this opportunity to thank everyone involved with the awards and the other festivals and supporting industries that have helped Glasgowbury to date.
