The Heavy Music Awards are heading to the OVO Arena at Wembley next year.
The annual music ceremony celebrating the best in heavy music was first launched in 2017 at the House of Vans in London, with a capacity of just 850 people.
Last year’s event was held at the slightly larger O2 Forum Kentish Town, which holds 2,300, and now the HMAs are moving to the second-largest arena in the UK capital.
The awards ceremony returns on May 26, 2023.
