It’s down to music fans across the country who have supported the venue that we can continue to celebrate the rich music scene in Scotland, and welcome back established acts who have a strong affinity to the venue.”

The OVO Hydro received their award with the following statement: “We are thrilled to receive this recognition amongst so many incredible venues across the UK. 2022 was a special one for us at OVO Hydro, as we welcomed fans in record numbers and had our busiest year of shows across multi-genres.

Thank you to Ticketmaster for the nomination, and of course to all of the fans who voted – the venue’s success is driven by your support.
