With just over a month to go until this year’s Xperia Access Q Awards, today (9 September) we can reveal the 2014 shortlist.

Following the first phase of ‘open voting’, we’ve narrowed down the field and now it’s up to you to pick who will win on 22 October at the ceremony hosted by Absolute Radio’s Christian O’Connell.

Kate Bush‘s comeback residency at London’s Eventim Apollo after a 35-year absence from the stage earns her first ever nomination for Best Live Act presented by The Cavern Club. She’s also nominated for the coveted Best Act In The World Today Award presented by Buster + Punch.

Kasabian lead the nominations this year and have the chance to collect four awards, with nominations for Best Track presented by Absolute Radio (Eez-eh), Best Album for 48:13, Best Act In The World Today and Best Live Act following their headline slot at this year’s Glastonbury. Arctic Monkeys have three nominations – for Best Video (Arabella), Best Act In The World Today and, having just headlined the Reading And Leeds Festivals, they are among the contenders for Best Live Act.
