The Sheffield band were speaking to NME from the winner’s room after picking up the trophy for Best Band From The UK Supported By Pizza Express.

Bring Me’s Malta festival, announced last November, will take place from May 26-30 and feature a full live show and an exclusive retrospective set from the band.

Discussing what to expect from the event, drummer Mat Nicholls promised “bingo with Jordan Fish [BMTH keys player]. It’s called ‘Bringo’.”

“It’s like Fyre Festival but with better sandwiches,” frontman Oli Sykes added.

Besides Best Band From The UK Supported By Pizza Express, Bring Me The Horizon were also nominated for Best Band In The World and Best Live Act Supported By Grolsch. They lost the latter category to Rina Sawayama.

Bring Me are also expected to close the show with a five-song set. They will follow performances by Sam Fender, BERWYN, Griff and Sigrid and more.
