HarderFaster Awards 2010 - You had your say!

Reported by HarderFaster / Submitted 03-03-11 09:01

It's that time again when HarderFaster looks back at who, what and where made the past year memorable and our 2010 poll saw a wider range of votes across more genres than any previous vote. It looks like HF’s tastes are diversifying even further - a very different story from our earlier days when there were normally a few clear winners.

With such a diverse range of votes we've continued to award joint prizes to reflect the spirit of the voting, rather than precise numbers polled, and we hope that the winners will be happy to share their accolades.

So, without further ado, let's get on and reveal the winners!


HarderFaster Club Night of the Year 2010
Which was the best overall promotion of the year?

Winner: Twist

Twist returns to previous winning form with a resounding poll success!

Frantic receive an honourable mention as do newcomers Odyssey.

HarderFaster After Party of the Year 2010
If the night is just not enough then this is where you'll be.

Winner: Twist

No messing around this year, Twist reclaim their traditional After Party top spot with ReFre5h in second place.

HarderFaster Day Party of the Year 2010
Don't fancy a late night? This is the daytime party where it's all happening.

Winner: Odyssey

With Trance on Thames taking a break in 2010 we weren’t at all surprised to see Odyssey, our one to watch in 2009 take this prize.

Honourable mention to the HarderFaster Xmas Party, and further congratulations to the HF elves who organised it.

HarderFaster New Party of the Year 2010

Winner: Myopia

With their colourful themed parties, Myopia are anything but short-sighted.

Runners up Bioshokk and Odyssey.

Honourable mentions to Hidden and Koko.

HarderFaster New Venue of the Year 2010

Winner: Ember

Ember in Farringdon takes top spot with honourable mentions for Ewer Street and late-comer Raving Buddha which opened in December but is already looking to be a firm favourite with HF.

Votes were so divided in some of these categories it would be unfair of us to award a single winner so we’re giving honourable mentions to the cream of the crop.
