Reported by HarderFaster / Submitted 28-03-12 21:09

It's that time again when HarderFaster looks back at who, what, where and when made the past year memorable, and our 2011 poll saw more of the same diversity we’ve had in recent years so we’ll continue our tradition of awarding joint prizes and honourable mentions.

We know you’ve been gagging for this moment, including some who didn't bother to vote and those who are itching to discover if "josie" would be named HF festival of 2011, so without further ado, let's get on and reveal the real winners! And the poor losers.
