The Bay Music Awards 2011 was the eighth edition of the Bay Music Awards. The winners were named at the awards event, presented by 89.7 Bay hosts Nathan D and Ben Glover, at the Bay Arena, St Julian’s, on Monday 12 December 2011.

The tagline for this edition is 'Are you ready to scream?', tied to a search for "Malta’s biggest screamer". Fans were asked to send in their screaming pic to studio@bay.com.mt and the winner along with three friends won backstage VIP passes to the BMAs 2011. The winner was determined through the BMA’s Facebook fan page, depending on the most likes a picture gets. However, rather than direct uploads to Facebook, the organizers requested emailed photos to studio@bay.com.mt.

Tickets for the 2011 BMAs cost 10 euros and were sold from the Eden Cinemas Box Office, St Julians. A limited 100 front row ‘Screamer tickets’ were sold for 12 euros each.

The event was officially announced during a press launch on Tuesday 25 October at the Intercontinental Hotel in St. George's Bay.

This edition of the BMAs caused some stir on the local scene because acts invited to play during the event were asked to sign agreements that they would not be performing at other award ceremonies this year. [1] [2]
