DICE, who are also the headline partner for the Artist and Manager Awards 2015, will sponsor the Breakthrough Artist Award. Phil Hutcheon, co-founder of DICE, said, “At DICE we are passionate about helping fans discover incredible new artists and getting them in to mind blowing shows. Sponsoring an award that celebrates upcoming talent that inspires and excites fits perfectly with our beliefs and we’re proud to put the DICE name to it.”

Launched in London in 2014 DICE allows fans to instantly discover and buy tickets for the best shows with No Booking Fees. DICE stand against the institutionalised secondary ticketing industry and touts that penalise fans.

Russ Tannen, Head of Music for DICE said: “The Artist and Manager Awards celebrate innovation and hard work. At DICE our mission is to use technology for the better of the music industry, to grow and inspire, and to ensure fans and artists are rewarded for their passion.”
