British rockers Muse were the big winners at the European Festival Awards on Wednesday, taking away the Best Headliner and Festival Anthem of the Year prizes.
The awards celebrate the best of Europe’s outdoor music events, and festival stalwarts Muse came out on top at the ceremony in Groningen, The Netherlands.

Their performances won them the Best Headliner honor, while the group’s track Uprising was named Favorite Festival Anthem of 2010.

Florence and the Machine scooped the Best Newcomer title at the prizegiving, while trophies were also handed out to organisers of Ireland’s Oxegen festival, Poland’s Heineken Open’er and Germany’s Rolling Stone Weekender.
