What a night! Now that the confetti has been swept up, the bottles of champagne recycled, and the Rat Boy moved along from his dozy state on a sofa in a back room of London’s O2 Academy Brixton, we can look back on the night knowing that this was probably the craziest NME Awards With Austin, Texas to date. Here’s some of the best shots from what truly was the rock’n’roll event of the year.
There was a show of rebellion from NME Innovation award-winners Bring Me The Horizon, whose frontman Oli Sykes decided to invade the table of our Godlike Geniuses, Coldplay. Chris Martin played it cool.

Wolf Alice were delighted, if a little nervous, at scooping the first award of the night for Best Track. Bass player Theo Ellis said: “Fuck, it’s too early. We’re not drunk enough to accept an award yet. This is nerve wracking. Big up our record label who put this song out.”
