The MTVU Woodie Award nominees have been revealed and yes, some Top 40 radio did happen to leak onto the college radio oriented award show.
The 10th annual event honors those tracks and musicians that are spun at your local college radio station on repeat and will once again happen in Austin during the South by Southwest Music Festival. For those not able to make it to Austin for SXSW, the half-an-hour 2014 Woodie Awards Special will air on March 16 at 8 p.m. on MTV.
The Arcade Fire, Lorde, Daft Punk, Beyoncé, Drake, Jay Z, Pharrell, Imagine Dragons, Bastille, Disclosure, the 1975, Chance the Rapper and A$AP Rocky are just some of the nominees that are up for several nominations including ‘Best Video Woodie’ and ‘Best Performing Woodie.’
