It’s been an interesting 12 months for music both at home in abroad, and with 2015 fast approaching, we thought it might be time to slow down for a moment of gentle reflection.

Yes, it’s that time of year again. Tone Deaf are opening the digital voting booths and giving you a chance to give democracy a shot in the arm by having your say in our Fifth Annual Readers Poll.

Having scoured through the last 12 months of music events, we’ve created a shortlist covering everything from the year’s best albums and festivals, to the biggest wankers and saddest events, and we want to know what you think about each.

So stand up, be counted, get voting, and make sure you don’t forget to tell your friends, because we want to know it all – the good, the bad, and the ugly.

The booths are open now and our poll will run until 17th December 2014, with the results to be published that day.

Get unlimited access to the coverage that shapes our culture.
