The awards were to celebrate Prog Rock’s greatest, with Genesis honoured with the Lifetime Achievement Award. Some of the biggest names in Prog turned up for the event, including Asia, ELP, The Moody Blues, Roxy Music, Marillion, Steve Hackett, Fish, It Bites and Anathema.
As well as being the first time the event had taken place, it was also the first corporate event to take place in the newest addition to Kew Gardens venue portfolio, The Sir Joseph Banks Building. Oxygen produced and managed the award show production and installed a stunning white stage set complete with colour-changing LED battens and the room was lit with a mixture of LED colour-changing fixtures and ceiling gobo wash. The welcome drinks and media reception was held in the Nash Conservatory.
