This year sees the 7th annual MK Awards taking place featuring the BEST of what SA has to offer in 10 categories.
The event will be held this year once again at The State Theatre in Pretoria on 24 March 2013.
Once again, MK has done a new introduction with the introduction of “Best SA Music Festival” and “Best Solo” categories. These categories allowed for YOU the fan of the music to vote for your favourite act in these respective categories. The artists and festival who came out with the most nominations by 25 January were included as official nominees.
So good to see they are trying to make things different every year, I remember announcing the “Best Indie” and “Best Dance” categories for last year’s awards like it was yesterday 🙂
