Northern Ireland Music Awards Winners

Find out who won what at the inaugural ceremony

The inaugural Northern Ireland Music Awards rocked the Ulster Hall in Belfast this week, one of the main attractions of the 2011 Belfast Music Week.

Organised by AU Magazine and the Oh Yeah Music Centre, the awards celebrated the current crop of Northern Irish artists shifting units and making waves.

On the night there were live performances from the Japanese Popstars, General Fiasco, And So I Watch You From Afar, Cashier No.9 and Stiff Little Fingers – who also collected the Oh Yeah Legends award.

The award for best band went to Two Door Cinema Club, who have really made a mark internationally this year following the release of their debut album, Tourist History, in March 2010. Best album went to Cashier No.9 for To The Death of Fun, whilst emerging rockers The Wonder Villans scooped the Oh Yeah Contenders award.
