It’s important that readers understand that this years Journeys Alternative Press Music Awards is going to be awesome.
Last year, rock music’s newest awards show took over Cleveland’s Quicken Loans Arena with stellar performances and a super exciting red carpet, and to mention the support of devoted alternative music fans from across the world.
However, thanks to the upcoming Republican National Convention taking over Cleveland this summer, the awards show was forced to find a new home, and in what better place than the state capitol of Columbus, Ohio. The Alternative Press Music Awards will be broadcasting live from the Schottenstein Center in Columbus on July 18 with tickets for those interested in attending the event available through Ticketmaster.
Not to mention, they invited back Alex Gaskarth and Jack Barakat as this years hosting duo. They shared, “We are so happy to be returning to the APMA’s this year to host. Last year we didn’t make a lot of new friends (sad face emoji), so this year – we’re coming back as something no one can hate, politicians! We look forward to being part of this Punk Rock Convention. Get ready to vote – Stay tuned.”
