Bright Star Awards 2018

The Bright Star Awards is an urban music award. It is the brainchild and concept of Sly of Colourful Radio. Each year we are trying to improve engagement so that UK and international artists and the music that we love can get more recognition.

Winners will receive an engraved Bright Star Award. In addition there will be a worldwide live video stream of the event and simultaneous Outside Broadcast (OB) on Colourful Radio across DAB, web, mobile and all digital platforms of the event and artists receiving their awards.
