Phil Alexander, editor in chief at Q Magazine, commented: “The Q Awards categories that are voted for by the readers lie at the very heart of the ceremony itself and this year, in a venue that’s bigger and better, we’re delighted to be able to finally invite the only people that truly matter: those that buy the records, that buy the tickets, and that buy our magazine. It’s been a long time coming, but the fact that it’s also Q Magazine’s 30th birthday gives us an even greater reason to celebrate.”
