VLR Awards add another legendary band to their lineup!

Cancel whatever plans you had for the 12th April and get yourself to the London O2 Academy in Islington....

Just when you think the 2023 Vive Le Rock Awards couldn’t be topped in terms of music and mayhem, you feast your eyes on the roster for 2024!

And what a feast for the eyes it is- a lineup jam packed with wall-to-wall punk legends and rising stars all there to celebrate the best in alternative music past and present.

Vive Le Rock have announced UK post punk legends Theatre Of Hate will celebrate their founder Kirk Brandon’s VLR award with a special 30-minute awards set at the event. Brandon and Theatre Of Hate are known for hits including ‘Do You Believe In The Westworld‘ and ‘The Hop‘ and recently completed a mammoth 32 date U.S tour. They’ll be on the road in the UK in April.

Also on the night there will be a special tribute to the great Killing Joke guitarist Geordie Walker who passed away in November last year, with contributions from Jaz Coleman and the Vive Le Rockers playing a special song for the greatly missed punk legend.

They join the already announced special 30-minute award sets from Hersham Boys Sham 69, and Ruts DC, who will feature very special guests in their one-off appearance, alongside special guest performances from the iconic Toyah, rock n’ roll king Jim Jones and the one and only Saffron from Republica, plus Lily from fast rising punks The Meffs!

A five hour show with a full programme of awards, winners and celebrity presenters, there’s only one place to be in April and that’s the VLR Awards 2024!

Tickets and special VIP packages including aftershow party, VLR Two Tone Annual and special Awards T-shirt are available HERE.
