ICM Awards
best live performance icm awards

Nothing beats live music, not only listening to music, but feeling it pass through your body with a room filled with like-minded fans.

We live for gigs, and that’s why this award exists, we feel the need to reward the artists who strive to make live music an experience.

Of course, we couldn’t visit every gig held, but here are some of our favourites.

Glass Peaks @ Thousand Island

No one has a wider range of songs than Wolf Alice, their sets have peaks and troughs taking their fans on a rollercoaster ride throughout. There is nothing quite like a Wolf Alice gig and R&L was no different.

Blackwaters’ Yard Party

Blackwaters

Blackwaters is a traditional rock band and give a performance to match. The lead was jumping around the stage and climbing up the walls and jumping off. Nothing less than a true rockstar performance.
