The Shockwaves NME Awards will be broadcast on Channel 4 again next year.

It’s the third year Channel 4 have shown exclusive footage from the awards.

The ceremony, which takes place on February 28, will feature on the channel, along with a series of programmes themed around the awards.

The announcement was made tonight (December 6) at the Shockwaves NME Awards launch party which is taking place in London.

Headliners Babyshambles will be joined by The Wombats and Joe Lean and the Jing Jang Jong, who will also be playing.

Approximately 300 NME readers have won tickets to the party, but if you weren’t one of the lucky few who bagged a place, you can keep up to date by checking back here later on.

We’ll have a dedicated section on NME.COM to keep you updated, with news reports, picture galleries of Doherty and his band and video.
