A packed week of events in January 2024 saw members of the community come together to celebrate the music and community of Americana and Roots Music. The week kicked off with a party of course! In partnership with Sweet Home Alabama & Thirty Tigers, the event featured Jason Isbell’s seminal album Southeastern, and other fantastic music out of the Yellowhammer State. The following two days saw informative and interactive daytime panels and talks, followed by artist showcasing of 50+bands across 5 stages in Hackney, London. The week culminated in the annual UK Americana Awards, celebrating the very best of UK and International Americana talent.

The members then vote for their favourites to produce the winners.
