Preview: NME Awards Tour at O2 Academy Bournemouth (20/2/13)


Continuing in traditional style, NME have put together four of this year’s brightest indie stars onto one billing. Almost exactly a year since it last appeared, Bournemouth’s O2 Academy will play host to the NME Awards Tour on 20th February.

Described as one of their hottest line-ups yet it promises new music aplenty with Peace, Palma VioletsMiles Kane and Django Django on the bill.

Headlining the tour is psychedelic electro-indie quartet Django Django. Bringing their self-titled debut to life; it promises to be both musically and aesthetically pleasing. For those who haven’t had the opportunity to see Django Django live, this will be the one of the last times you’ll catch them this year outside festivals – and it’s one you can’t afford to miss.

Fresh from releasing ‘Give Up, the first track off his as of yet unnamed second album, Miles Kane provides the main support slot. His set promises to be a mix of both old and new, previously unheard material—which should be reason enough to go.

Rounding up the bill are two of NME’s favourite new bands of the last 6 months: Palma Violets and Peace. Both bands will be touring pre-debut and are out to prove that they are, indeed, worth the buzz that surrounds them.

Tickets for the NME Awards Tour are on sale now, available here.
