12 Candid, Black And White Backstage Photos From The Winner’s Room At The NME Awards With Austin, Texas

The backstage winner’s room at the NME Awards with Austin, Texas is the place everyone wants to be. It’s where musical royalty mingle and hang out – a place which brings together a combination of artists rarely seen together. This year, Kasabian took the time to sketch NME staffers, Florence laughed it up with Jamie T and everyone from Run The Jewels to James Dean Bradfield wanted their moment to bask in the presence of Jimmy Page and exclaim: ‘We are not worthy!’
