The weirdest and wildest moments of NME Awards past

Things can get a little crazy on the most rock'n'roll night of the year

More than any other awards show, the VO5 NME Awards is known for getting messy. We dread to think what the organisers of the ceremony back in the ’50s and ’60s would make of some of the things that go on these days – crashing tables, turning up in fancy dress, and having to be taken to hospital twice in one night would never happen on their watch.

What will we be adding to this list after the 2018 ceremony? Who knows, but you can have a front row seat by purchasing your tickets for the Vo5 NME Awards 2018, which takes place at the O2 Academy Brixton on February 14, here.
