UPDATE: Due to additional lockdowns announced by the UK government throughout the course of 2020, the A&R Awards are being further postponed, and will return in the second half of 2021.
The A&R Awards, presented by MBW, have become a must-attend fixture in the British music industry’s annual calendar.
The UK-focused event has taken place in November of each of the past four years, and we were getting ready to announce this year’s show… until the ‘c’ word went and messed with our plans.
In light of the current pandemic, and with the disruption and misery it’s currently causing key elements of the music industry, we have decided to postpone this year’s awards until March 2021.
The A&R Awards is the most enjoyable night in the UK music industry calendar and it’s important to us that our next instalment lives up to that promise.
For the competitive types among you, please rest assured that all releases covering the entire span of the last year (from Q4 2019 through Q1 2021, in fact) will be considered for shortlists at the event.
The A&R Awards will now take place in March each year moving forward.
Full details of how to buy tickets for our 2021 event will be announced in the near future.
Until then, stay well, and we wish you all as swift (and safe) a return to normalcy as possible.Music Business Worldwide
