No big surprises at this year’s Music Industry Awards

The annual Music Industry Awards were held in Brussels on Tuesday evening. The group Lost Frequencies put the gathering of “Famous Flemings” and other that were at the event in the party mood. The show was broadcast live on the VRT’s first television channel Eén and was watched by hundreds of thousands of people from the comfort of their own sitting rooms.

Last year’s Belgian Eurovision Song Contest entrant Blanche was the only artist to win two MIA’s. There was also MIAs for Coley (photo above), Souwax, Oscar and the Wolf…and a lifetime achievement award for Raymond van het Groenewoud.
