What Are The
Music Cities Awards?
The Music Cities Awards is a global competition designed to acknowledge and reward the most outstanding applications of music for economic, social, environmental and cultural development in cities and places all around the world.
The awards also aim to promote best practice and demonstrate the value of music to the world.
