Maximum Rock Awards 2013 – Vote for your band here!

The beginning of 2014 is a good occasion for us rock magazines to make a recap of the most important musical events which took place last year.

Whether we’re talking about album releases, videos, concerts or bands consolidating their superstar status, or gaining well-deserved acclaim, 2013 had 12 rich months of blistering rock’n’roll.

It is very important to remember the highlights in order to better understand what’s coming in the future, which is why we’ve designed some very special awards for both local and foreign bands.

The „Maximum Rock Awards” gala will take place on February 13th 2014 at The Silver Church Club in Bucharest and promises to shed some much merited light on the achievements of those hard-working musicians out there.

Many local acts will take to the stage, but foreign acts will also be honored, as it is well known that the Romanian rock audience simply devours music!

As in any respectable award ceremony, the public vote is of crucial importance, and it would not be fair if everyone didn’t get to have a say, which is why we’re asking YOU.

Below you can find a list of categories including foreign and local acts. If you’re not from Romania, you can vote in both categories HERE. Find all the polls behind the LINK.

The nominees were chosen by several important personalities from the Romanian rock scene: Alex Revenco, Coro Caraveteanu and Mihnea Badea, among others.
