Among the candidates for the ceremony are both independent and major British publishers and labels, as well as management companies.

Additionally, a series of individual awards will reward the best A&R executives in genres such as Electronic/Dance, hip-hop/grime, Pop/R&B and Rock/Alternative – while Producer of the Year and Songwriter of the Year gongs will also be present at night.

The price of artist loyalty will celebrate an individual who has remained faithful to an artist through thick and thin, and the night will be crowned with the A&R Icon Award – paying homage to an A&R figure who was a game-changer for the global music industry.

Abbey Road Studios have been at the forefront of musical creativity since Sir Edward Elgar’s inaugural performance in 1931.

The world-renowned studios have hosted landmark recordings by modern artists such as Florence + the Machine, Kanye West and Adele – while playing a vital role in the creation of classical music like the Beatles and Pink Floyd.

In addition to its renowned recording and production facilities, ARS is also home to Abbey Road Red – the only music technology specific incubator program in Europe.

Red gives fledgling music tech start-ups access to the expertise and widely respected facilities of Abbey Road and Universal Music.

Plus, there’s the Abbey Road Institute – a new educational initiative that aims to provide students with the highest level of theoretical instruction blended with the best studio-based education.The music industry around the world
