The nominees for this year's DICE Live Award are in: Girl Band, The Big Moon, Jack Garratt, and Little Simz will all be looking to follow in the footsteps of Wolf Alice, who picked up the gong last year.

The winner will be announced during a ceremony at Hackney's Moth Club on November 19th, which will include a number of performances and DJ sets.

"Sitting in a hotel conference room tucking into a cold roast dinner isn't really our thing," says Russ Tannen, Head of Music at DICE. "We've cut the crap to focus on celebrating great emerging live music with artists we care about. If last year is anything to go by it's going to be a total mess."

The award is voted on by a panel of 100 journalists, promoters, broadcasters, and UK venues; tickets are available via a ballot from the DICE website.
