The AIM Independent Music Awards have announced some of the details for this year's awards ceremony.

The follow up to last year's event will take place at The Brewery, Clerkenwell on October 29th, which is twice the size of last year's venue, and will be co-hosted by Steve Lamacq and Huw Stephens.

“I'm delighted to be co-hosting the awards again after its inception last year. It really was a bit special being in a room with so many influential independent label bosses, including people like Martin Mills and Geoff Travis who put out so many of the records I bought as a teenager. What last year proved is that the AIM Awards does a variety of things. It raises the profile of the indie sector - but it's also very valuable in bringing indie label heads together for a night to swap advice and discuss the future. And on top of that it's terrific to mark some of the achievements of the musicians and labels who've excelled in their field.” Steve Lamacq
