SoundCloud to sponsor key category at A&R Awards

SoundCloud has become the latest big name to back this year’s A&R Awards, sponsoring the hugely prestigious Electronic/Dance category.

Presented by Music Business Worldwide, the A&R Awards is the UK music industry’s most enjoyable night out of the year.

This year’s event takes place at its traditional home, London’s Grand Connaught Rooms, on the evening of Tuesday November 7th. On the night, the most successful execs, managers, producers and songwriters of the last 12 months will be celebrated – and there will be a sprinkling of special recognition awards for some legends of the game.

Emmy Lovell, Global Head of Music, SoundCloud, said: “Electronic and Dance music is built into SoundCloud’s DNA. We’re thrilled to sponsor the Electronic and Dance music category at this year’s MBW A&R Awards and continue to champion the artists getting their start on SoundCloud.

“We’re the best place for emerging artists to develop and thrive.”

“We’re the best place for emerging artists to develop and thrive, and it shows in how many of today’s brightest stars flourished on SoundCloud first.”

Platinum tables for the event have now completely SOLD OUT, with only a handful of Gold tables still available for purchase.
