NME Awards 2016: Complete Winners List

The NME Awards 2016 in Austin, Texas, took place on Wednesday, February 17 — just two days after the Grammy Awards — at London’s O2 Academy in Brixton.

Coldplay, Taylor Swift, Wolf Alice, and The Libertines were among the big winners at the ceremony, which was hosted by Radio 1 DJ Huw Stephens for the third consecutive year. Taylor Swift, who took home five gramophone statues on Monday, beat Kendrick Lamar and Kanye West, among others, to land the title of the Best International Solo Artist. Meanwhile, The Maccabees were named the Best British Band, while Run The Jewels were presented the award for the Best International Band.

Coldplay, who was presented with the Godlike Genius award, took to the stage to perform, along with Foals, Bring Me The Horizon, The Maccabees, and Rat Boy.
