The 7th annual MK Awards will feature SA's hottest music talent competing in 10 categories. Viewers' votes will determine who will win at the finale event to be held at The State Theatre in Pretoria on 24 March, 2013.
MK has changed things up a bit for this year's awards by introducing the Best SA Music Festival and Best Solo categories. Phase one of the MK Awards 2013 took place between 10 and 25 January, when people had the opportunity to nominate who they felt best deserved to be in the Best Live and Best SA Music Fest categories. The artists and festival that came out with the most nominations by 25 January were included as official nominees.
Now that the full list of MK Awards 2013 nominees have been announced, viewers will have until 8 March to vote on MK's website and Facebook page.
