The Featured Artists Coalition & Music Managers Forum are delighted to announce that the Artist & Manager Awards return to London’s Bloomsbury Big Top on Thursday 17th November.

Now in their 12th year, the Awards represents a unique celebration of achievements across the artist and manager community. Categories at the must-attend event include Artist of the Year, Manager of the Year, Breakthrough Artist, Breakthrough Manager, Entrepreneur and Industry Champion. Lifetime achievements will also be recognised with our sought-after awards for Artists’ Artist and Managers’ Manager.

In addition to the ceremony, ticket buyers will enjoy a red carpet cocktail reception, a two-course meal and access to the exclusive Artist & Manager Awards afterparty at Bloomsbury Bowling.
At last year’s sell-out event, the FAC and MMF were honoured to be joined by Sir Elton John and David Furnish who picked the award for Artist & Manager Partnership.
Other 2021 winners included Little Simz, Rina Sawayama, Mogwai, Amy Morgan (September Management), Grace Ladoja (Metallic Inc), Kayleigh Thorpe (Little Runaway Management), The Black Music Coalition, BICEP / This Is Music, Karma Artists and YMU Music Group.

David Martin, CEO, Featured Artists Coalition and Annabella Coldrick, Chief Executive, Music Managers Forum:
“In what’s still an incredibly tough working environment for artists and managers, it’s important we take a moment to celebrate the art, creativity and innovation of our communities and recognise some significant entrepreneurial successes. Last year’s Artist & Manager Awards was truly special with a really diverse set of winners and incredible support throughout the industry. We intend to keep that spirit going for 2022’s ceremony, which is why we’re urging everyone across the MMF and FAC’s membership, including our Associates, to suggest nominations for the longlist. We can’t wait to see who everyone puts forward.”
Further details of 2022’s ceremony will be announced shortly.
