The band were given the accolade by the listeners of Virgin Radio, beating the [url=]Red Hot Chili Peppers into second place with their show at London’s Hyde Park in June.

Virgin Radio DJ Pete Mitchell said: “This year has seen an amazing array of talent come into the mainstream.

“The Snow Patrol are one of the most original, eccentric bands to come through and it’s no surprise the British public are lapping up their performances.”

Keane’s V Festival set came in third while other acts to feature in the top ten included Maroon 5 and Franz Ferdinand and [a][/a].
