The Scottish Album of the Year (SAY) Award – Scotland’s national music prize – hosts its 2021 Ceremony at Edinburgh’s Usher Hall on Saturday 23 October.

Celebrating Scottish music and the cultural impact of outstanding Scottish albums, 2021 marks the 10th year of the award, which has now distributed over £250,000 in prize money to Scottish artists.

For the first time in the award’s history, and part of its 10th year celebrations, music fans are able to purchase tickets to attend the event; one of the most highly anticipated and exciting nights in Scotland’s musical calendar.

Hosted by BBC Radio Scotland's Vic Galloway and Nicola Meighan, The SAY Award Ceremony 2021 will see four special live performances, a celebration of this year’s Nominees and the exclusive announcement of 2021’s winner, who will walk away with the coveted title of Scottish Album of the Year along with the £20,000 first prize. It will also see the winners of two new prizes recognised – the Sound of Young Scotland Award and the Modern Scottish Classic Award – allowing a full-circle celebration of Scottish music throughout time; past, present and future.
