2012 ECHO music awards

Along with the Grammys and the Brit Awards, the ECHOs are among the most prestigious music awards in the world. Otherwise known as the German Music Prize, the ECHO awards have been presented every year since 1992 on behalf of the Deutsche Phono-Akademie, the main cultural institute representing Germany's music industry.

The 12th ECHO awards, which are taking place on 22 March 2012 in Berlin, will recognise the achievements of German and international musicians. Many acts will be performing at the award ceremony at Berlin Exhibition Centre.
