The A&R Awards is back for 2021!
The A&R Awards in association with Abbey Road Studios will return to London on the evening of Tuesday, November 9, 2021.
Once again, it will be a show like no other in the music industry. We aim to host the UK business’s best night out, with its most deserving winners.
Once again, the A&R Awards will reward, recognise and celebrate the best creative executive talents working throughout the UK music biz.
We’re returning to the ballroom of the swanky De Vere Grand Connaught Rooms in Covent Garden.
Obviously all of our awards are important – from Songwriter/Producer of The Year through to A&R Of The Year and Publisher/Label/Management Company Of The Year.
Not forgetting newer awards such as Song Of The Year and The One To Watch Award (in partnership with Vevo).
But the A&R Awards prides itself on also giving our audience some extra special reasons to applaud.
Once again, this year’s Sir George Martin Award – approved by the great man’s estate – will be collected by an individual with a proven track record of truly artist-friendly A&R who also continues to sign contemporary hitmakers today.
Our A&R Icon Award will recognise a legend of music business A&R, whose professional feats have influenced generations to come.
And our A&R Loyalty Award will celebrate a longstanding relationship between an industry exec and a standout artist or songwriter – two figures who have stood by each other through thick and thin over the years.
