In Pictures: The Kerrang! Awards 2019

Take a look at this year’s incredible Kerrang! Awards

Last night (June 19) the world of rock came together under one roof to celebrate the best music of the past 12 months at the Kerrang! Awards 2019.

Taking place at the Islington Assembly Hall in London, just a stone’s throw from Kerrang!‘s London HQ, we handed out eleven awards to some of the greatest and most exciting musicians on the planet. 

The glamorous ceremony (if we do say so ourself) hosted the likes of Metallica, Architects, Kelly Osbourne, Skunk Anansie, Enter Shikari, IDLES, Phil Campbell, Employed To Serve, Roger Taylor and Tobias Forge.

Oh, and bloody Jimmy Page was there! When was the last time we had members of Led Zeppelin, Motörhead, Metallica and Queen in the same room? Absolutely bonkers.

And here’s what it looked like!
