The Pensado Awards, an award show created by the producers of the acclaimed online video series Pensado's Place, has announced the date and venue for its second-annual ceremony. This year's festivities will take place on Sunday, August 30, 2015, at Sony Pictures Studios in Culver City, CA. AfterMaster® Audio Labs is serving as presenting sponsor.
2014's ceremony hosted a crowd of over 600 recording industry figures, with the live ceremony highlighted by presentations from the likes of Neil Young and Sir Paul McCartney, some as proud nominees, some as presenters, some there to simply be a part of the evening – and this year's show is set to be even bigger. The awards will be held outdoors under the stars in Calley Park in the middle of the Sony Pictures Studios lot. A VIP reception will be held on the complex's Main Street area; the "AfterMaster Lounge" will be located in the Rita Hayworth Theatre; and an afterparty will take place in the Sony Commissary, which is connected to the park.
The Pensado Awards, founded as a means of acknowledging talented music producers, engineers, mixers and their work, are a grand opportunity for the best pros, amateurs, brands and press to come together as one community to celebrate the uncelebrated. Check out scenes from the inaugural show below.
