After another successful show in the city of Columbus last year, Alt Press announced that the APMAs will be returning to the great city of Cleveland on July 17, 2017.

The Journey’s Alternative Press Music Awards, fueled by Monster Energy Drink is one of the biggest, most popular celebrations of alternative music on the planet. Year after year the APMAs deliver memorable performances from some of the scene’s biggest artists, while celebrating artists achievements and outstanding growth within the industry and their respected genres.

What TIME Magazine has come to refer to as the “GRAMMYS of Alternative Music” has already promised us BIGGER and BETTER for their 2017 awards show. Last year alone, the APMAs were trending worldwide for 72 straight hours on Twitter and Facebook. Over 6,000 fans were in attendance as artists such as Papa Roach, ISSUES, Neck Deep, Machine Gun Kelly, and BABYMETAL gave incredible performances, with even more artists walking away with the highly coveted Skully Award.

Announcements regarding venue, tickets, performances, nominees, VIP, and red carpet appearances will be announced in the new year via
