The VO5 NME Awards 2018 ended with a bang at the Closing Party at Omeara, London. Goldierocks wore her “favourite vintage fur coat”, bought “on the way to Burning Man”.
2Very Important Person
Lanyard in hand, Goldierocks headed out to enjoy the night, and was later joined by the winners of Best British Band at the VO5 NME Awards 2018, alt-J.
3Strike A Pose
Life’s fundamental rule had to be obeyed: if you don’t get a picture for the ‘Gram, were you even there? This photobooth allowed Goldie to star in her own NME cover.
On the walls at Omeara were a selection of iconic NME photographs, including these shots of 2018’s Godlike Genius, Liam Gallagher, and his cheeky trophy.
5On the decks
Goldierocks warmed up the crowd with a killer DJ set, blasting out “loads of new music” and some “indie disco hits”.
6What’s your tipple?
Goldierocks is “definitely a gin girl” and luckily, BULLDOG were on hand to provide a gin and tonic, or three.
Alt-J treated us to a set of total classics spanning their three albums to date. “it was such an intimate show,” says Goldie.
Goldie watched Best British Band winners Alt-J from “a perfect balcony” overlooking the stage. Next stop, the festivals.
At the end of the night we had to bid the VO5 NME Awards 2018 adieu. “The party went on so late,” says Goldie. “so rock ‘n’ roll for a Monday!”
