WeekendWook.com is proud to present the inaugural Wookie Awards – celebrating the great (and sometimes not-so-great) contributions to the jam scene over the last year or so. The nominations and award recipients will be announced throughout the week, and will ultimately be listed below.

While some categories will be voted on (via Twitter) in 24-hour fan polls, others will be awarded via wook committee. The festivities begin September 23rd at 8:00pm EST.


Award Categories


Best Bracket Melt

For his exceptional meltdown following the elimination of Ruby Waves from this year's Jam Bracket, Mr. MeltMagnet takes the Wookie for Best Bracket Melt. Seems appropriate.


Outstanding Vet Account

While there are many outstanding vet accounts on the various social media platforms, Chillwig is the most outstanding. Though unconfirmed, we believe he is both excited and grateful to win this highly sought-after Wookie.


Most Valuable Scene Informant

With hard work, insane persistence, and presumably several insider sources, Alex has established himself as the go-to account for jam scene information. With a batting average of 0.640, he is correct more times than not.


Best Road Warrior


Outstanding Online Feud


Comedic Relief

Love them or hate them, few can deny the incredible effort the Phunion puts in to pissing off jam band fans in the most hilarious way possible. The people have spoken and have awarded this satirical account the Wookie for Comedic Relief.
