NME Awards 2016

By Jamie Carson, Junior Digital Editor | Feb 2016

Tables are smashed, people are knocked to the floor, cans of beers fly across the room. No, this isn’t a Saturday night out in Glasgow, this is the NME Awards, the most rock ‘n’ roll awards ceremony around. Topman went along to the night mostly for the free drink and food, but to also celebrate the best in new music and chat to a few artists on the red carpet to find out their hangover cures, takeaway preference and sought after godlike power.
