Plus The Cribs and Johnny Marr, Manic Street Preachers and Klaxons to play live
In a night primed for collaborations both surprising and increasingly familiar, The Cribs will perform at the ceremony with ex-Smiths guitarist Johnny Marr, who joined them for dates on the just-finished Shockwaves NME Awards tour.
The evening will also see Godlike Genius award winners Manic Street Preachers perform at the ceremony with a mystery guest. Lightspeed Champion, Gallows with Lethal Bizzle and Klaxons will also perform.
