BeatAwards 2020 – the finals

Congratulations to all the finalists and winners of the inaugural BeatAwards which were brought to you by Merton Music Foundation in partnership with Beat Goes On, Trinity Rock & Pop, Youth Music and Crown Lane Studio.

The movers and shakers of Merton joined sparkling host Lilia Iontcheva for a dazzling online awards ceremony celebrating the borough’s young drummers and percussionists. We were overwhelmed with the number of young people who submitted videos and after days of deliberation, the judges agreed on a whopping 41 finalists and 12 winners. Congratulations to each and every one of them.

With thanks to our fantastic panel of judges: Ollie Tunmer from Beat Goes On, Flavio Li Vigni and Toby Davies from Trinity Rock & Pop.
