The Best Outdoor Event award at the Event Awards has been won by Ear To The Ground for the Live From Jodrell Bank festival. The 2011 event was headlined by The Flaming Lips and was the first time a music festival took place at the internationally renowned astronomical research centre which hosts the Lovell Telescope, an icon of science and engineering. The 2012 festival doubled its capacity and the headline show with Elbow and sold out in 60 minutes. Live From Jodrell Bank is in collaboration with the team behind the Kendal Calling festival and the team behind The Warehouse Project. Live From Jodrell Bank won the award at the prestigious ceremony beating off competition in the category from Taste Of London, Naked Urban Surf, Sainsbury’s Sport Relief Mile, Jamie Oliver’s Big Festival and Talisker’s Sail In Cinema.
