Foo Fighters have been named as the Headliner of the Year at the Festival Awards Europe 2012 at a ceremony in Groningen's De Oosterport, the Netherlands.

The US band topped the bill at 2012's Reading and Leeds Festival and have been playing main stage shows for over a decade and this has been recognised by the judges of the European awards.

Steve Jenner, Festival Awards co-founder, said: "This edition of the European Festival Awards has been a great and much needed celebration for the industry as a united whole."

Away from Foo Fighters, Swedish band Lykke Li scooped the Festival Anthem of the Year award for their track I Follow Rivers which has been delighting crowds across the continent.

Iceland's Of Monster and Men were named as the Newcomer of the Year as they continue to make an impact on the scene around Europe.

In terms of festivals specifically, Belgium's Tomorrowland claimed the Best Major Festival accolade while the Best Medium-Sized Festival went to Heineken Balaton Sound which is held in Hungary.

Germany's Rock AM Ring/Rock IM Park secured the Best European Festival Line-Up while Tauron New Music Festival in Poland was crowned Best Small Festival.
