Elbow frontman Guy Garvey will be named the Artists’ Artist at this year’s Artist & Manager Awards next month, it has been announced. These are the annual awards from the Featured Artists Coalition and Music Managers Forum.

Confirming the news, FAC chief exec Lucie Caswell says in the statement: “For his work with Elbow alone, Guy is an absolute legend in the artist community. A generous and heartfelt songwriter, his contribution to British music has been immense and consistent. Beyond that, Guy is a role model for us all, with his constant championing of all genres of new music, his willingness to ‘give back’ in so many ways and for his genuine sense of community. For all these reasons, FAC are delighted to name Guy Garvey as our Artists’ Artist for 2018”.

As well as this, it has been announced that Kilimanjaro Live and DHP Family will jointly receive this year’s Outstanding Contribution To Music prize.

Commenting, Music Managers Forum boss Annabella Coldrick says: “Given the unbelievable successes of the FanFair campaign to overhaul secondary ticketing, it feels entirely fitting that we should celebrate the companies and individuals who have delivered a positive change for artists and audiences. Kilimanjaro and DHP Family have both led the way to help eradicate large-scale ticket touting. They are worthy winners”.

The Artist And Manager Awards will take place at the Bloomsbury Big Top in London on 14 Nov, hosted again by BBC Radio 1’s Gemma Cairney.
