The time has finally arrived for you to cast your votes in the 2022 Kerrang! Awards!

Taking place in London on June 23, this year's Kerrang! Awards will be a true celebration of rock and alternative's new generation, as well as saluting the legends who continue to push themselves – and our scene – forward.

To showcase just how much is going on in modern music, we've introduced the New Noise Award, to highlight those new, underground artists who are making waves unequivocally on their own terms. Nominated for the inaugural prize are Heriot, Pinkshift, Pupil Slicer, Static Dress and WARGASM.

We have a total of nine categories for you to cast your vote in, the shortlists of which were chosen by over 10,000 Kerrang! readers.

From Best British Breakthrough to Best Album to Best Festival, make your voice heard in the fancy voting gizmo below. The winners will be announced on June 23 at the Kerrang! Awards – keep your eyes peeled to our socials throughout the night to find out who won.

If you can't see the voting form below, head over here.
