DICE Live Award 2015

The DICE office is a pretty quiet place today.

Last night we crowned Little Simz the Best Emerging Live Act in the UK and Ireland with a massive party at MOTH Club in Hackney. 100 journalists, broadcasters, venues, and promoters voted, and we couldn’t be more thrilled with the result.

If you were there, you know how electric the feeling in that room was. This was the second ever DICE Live Award, and now Little Simz joins last year’s champs Wolf Alice on the winner’s board.

We’d like to extend a massive THANK YOU to everyone who came and partied with us. To the 300 lucky fans who got in out of 5000 who applied for tickets. To our amazing nominees - Jack Garratt, Girl Band and The Big Moon (who played an achingly cool and clever set). To our DJs, and all the guys at MOTH Club for being great hosts. To Budweiser for their generosity. And of course, to our unbelievably brilliant winner, Little Simz. An artist who took stage last night and held the entire crowd in the palm of her hand - she had us jumping until our calves hurt, magiced us to mirror her cataclysmic enthusiasm, and left the room sweaty, smiling, and unshakeable in her title as the Best Emerging Live Act from the UK and Ireland.

Check out the photos below or follow us on Instagram @dicefm to see what went down. We couldn’t be happier to back live music of this calibre at DICE. We will always seek to support and discover insanely talented artists, and our passion is fed by shows like last night’s.

See you next year.
