2012 Mercury Prize nominees Django Django will headline the tour with Miles Kane the co-frontman of The Last Shadow Puppets and former frontman of The Rascals taking the main support slot. South London's Palma Violets whose singles include 'Best of Friends' and 'Last of the Summer Wine' and opening slot takers Birmingham's Peace complete the bill.
NME editor, Mike Williams said, "2012 has been an incredible year for music, and 2013 promises to be even better, not least for Django Django, Miles Kane, Palma Violets and Peace, the four amazing bands heading up the NME Awards Tour 2013. This is undoubtedly one of the strongest and most exciting bills we've ever put together, and I can't wait for it all to get started!"
