Now in its third year, this is the only event committed to presenting awards to the business people who drive the country’s contemporary live music industry.
The awards recognise excellence and talent among promoters, venue operators, festival organisers and agents, through to artiste managers, brand impact and record label partnerships.
Created by the publisher of LIVE UK – the only magazine dedicated to the companies and individuals working in this sector of the creative industries – the Live Music Business Awards takes place on the last night of the annual conference and networking event LIVE UK Summit.
A submissions process via this website enables LIVE UK readers and the wider industry to nominate up to three contenders for each category, between Wednesday 15 and Friday 24 August. Only nominations attracting 10 submissions or more will be eligible for inclusion in the ongoing voting process.
Shortlists of nominees will then be created with the help of our specialist Voting Panels – comprising industry professionals able to evaluate merit in their respective categories – and listed on this website for open voting between Monday 12 and Friday 21 September.
Participants can vote in all categories and across multiple nominees, and even return to alter their selection during the voting period, but will be barred from repeat voting.
Details of the Top 3 finalists will be published on this website in advance of the event and in LIVE UK, with the winners announced at the gala presentation ceremony on Wednesday 10 October.
The winners details will then be published in an exclusive Live Music Business Awards supplement of LIVE UK, following the event.
Those participating in the voting process are urged to be objective in how they make their selections. Abusing the openness of this process is not appreciated. The fundamental aim of the Live Music Business Awards is that the winner in each category gets there on genuine merit.
