Festicket Awards 2015: Brooklyn Hip Hop Festival and The Weeknd Share The Honours

This summer's edition marked the 10th anniversary of one of the most innovative and creative hip hop festivals in the world, all played out in front of the iconic Brooklyn Bridge.

The Weeknd's second studio album, Beauty Behind the Madness, has helped him carve out a massive following around the globe, ushering him into first place in the Festicket Magazine readers' vote. The Weeknd ended with a convincing 32%, ahead of Rudimental (25%), Drake (14%) and this year's comeback queen Missy Elliott (9%)
