28th Annual Dallas Observer Music Awards Showcase

1 Night, over 50 local bands on 9 stages in Deep Ellum

To determine the lineup of local acts, Dallas Observer polled movers and shakers in the music industry, everyone from promoters to fans to musicians themselves to nominate the best of the best for this year’s ballot. Those nominations were whittled down to more than 200 finalists divided into 40 categories on our 2016 Dallas Observer Music Awards Ballot. Close to half of those acts will perform at the 28th Annual Dallas Observer Music Awards Showcase, and fans can vote for their favorites now through December 2nd.
