The UK’s live music trade body Live Music Industry Venues And Entertainment – or LIVE to its friends – has announced a new awards ceremony. Because you can never have too many award ceremonies, can you? The inaugural LIVE Awards will take place in December, with submissions for consideration open now.

“After a year like no other, the world class UK live music scene is getting together to celebrate the fantastic work delivered in 2022, while looking towards what’s to come in 2023”, says LIVE CEO Jon Collins. “The awards offer a fantastic opportunity to recognise our world-leading talent and bring all corners of the industry together, while doing what we do best – throwing a fantastic party”.

The ceremony will honour live music companies of all sizes, including venues, festivals, promoters, booking agencies and ticketing firms. There will also be prizes for green credentials, brand partnerships, workforce and production suppliers.

Submissions are now open until 30 Sep, with the event itself taking place on 13 Dec at The Brewery in London. More info here.
