European Festival Awards 2015: alt-J and Florence up for Anthem of the Year

The European Festival Awards 2015 shortlists have been announced, and a big year for alt-J, Florence and the Machine, Hozier and Years & Years has seen them nominated for the prestigious Festival Anthem of the Year.

Here's the full shortlist, from alt-J's listless Left Hand Free to the throwback pop banger King by Years & Years. Which one would be your winner?

alt-J – Left Hand Free

Florence and The Machine – Ship To Wreck

Hozier – Take Me To Church

Major Lazer – Lean On

Pattie Smith – People Have The Power

Rudimental – Never Let You Go

Tame Impala – Let It Happen

The Prodigy – The Day is my Enemy

Wanda – Amore

Years and Years – King

Two other categories that focus on festival artists are Newcomer of the Year, where Brit Awards 2015 Critics' Choice winner James Bay is in the frame, and Best Headliner. No surprises that alt-J and Florence, Queen of Glastonbury, are in for that one too.
