R&L Section Awards 2016

Recommended Posts

Let's try this again, hopefully it's third time lucky!

 

All copied and pasted from @dentalplan's post last year, I hope he won't mind me using his template.

 

The categories are as follows:

  • Best Album
  • Best Single (I want you to make sure it's a single, check Wikipedia or whatever)
  • Best Video
  • Best Album Art
  • Best Live Act (include R+L as I know not everyone goes to beaucoup gigs and festies, however I'm not gonna count multiple performances by one band so specifying where you saw them is still optional but not necessary)
  • Best R+L Performance (if you went only please; no TV viewers because that's hardly fair when only two stages are televised! No duplicates for this either if anyone did actually go to both festivals for a day each or see a band twice.)

Below is the template which you can use. Copy and paste rather than quote if possible, just to make things easier. Feel free to strike out/delete the ones that don't apply to you (for instance, a lot of us aren't actually gonna be voting in the R+L category) but you might as well try to fill in ones you can. Submissions until 1st January 2017, after which I will add things up and post the results. IMPORTANT NOTE: You can no longer edit after a few hours unless you are a GOLD member on eFests, so don't bother posting to fill in later or hold a place unless of course you are a GOLD member. I know that will delay things but just think it out as there's plenty of time. If you want to ask any more rules then hit me up. Okay now here's the template...

Where is R&L section moment of the year? Although I can't remember any funny moments in here this year. I can't be bothered to post mine for a third time in the last day so I'll wait and do it later.

It is pretty hit & miss tbf, but it does have some absolute belters on it. Being the follow up to 'Let England Shake' certainly did it no favours

Just a query, but how do RHCP/Foals make it into your top 5 live acts, when you saw 3 better bands at Reading?

He didn't. You give 5 to the top one, and 1 point to the fifth best one.

Also while I'm here, do people think AMSP artwork is actually good or have they not looked at many album covers? It's crap.

I like it, but I'm something of a Stanley Donwood fanboy as much as I'm a Radiohead fanboy and neither can do a lot wrong in my eyes. I don't usually get blown away by album artwork though so I didn't give it a lot of thought.
