THE ARTIST & Manager Awards will be held at Printworks London, a former newspaper printing room, on 14 November.
Created by the Music Managers Forum (MMF) and Featured Artist Coalition (FAC), the event comprises awards including Breakthrough Manager, Manager of the Year and Artist of the Year, as well as the Peter Grant Lifetime Achievement Award, which will be presented to Depeche Mode manager Jonathan Kessler.
“The awards allow us a unique opportunity to celebrate and recognise those individuals who are driving our business forwards,” says MMF chief executive Annabella Coldrick.
Nick Stewart, who signed U2 and has managed acts such as The Eagles and Neil Diamond, is curating the event.
Last year’s winners included September Management’s Jonathan Dickins, Adele’s manger, The 1975 and Vector Management’s Peter Rudge.
