More than 600 votes will determine the winners and the fans votes are tallied and counted as 1 collective vote among the 600. From December 10th fans can vote at Rolling Stone or the official Rock & Roll Hall of Fame website and the top five acts will make up a fans ballot in choosing the 2014 inductees.

The induction ceremony will be held in New York on April 10th and it will be later broadcast on HBO.
