The LIVE Awards recognise the leading companies and individuals from right across the £5.2bn UK live music business.

From classical to grime, baroque to rock, the UK live music sector is recognised as one of the world’s greatest markets and a true beacon for concert and festival organisers around the world. The LIVE Awards recognises this excellence in the field, and at the venue.



The LIVE Awards will be presented on 11 December in London. The LIVE Awards are an opportunity for nominees from all aspects of our wonderful, world class live music industry to shout about their achievements, and gain rightful recognition from peers, and the broader music and entertainment world. To be considered for a LIVE Award, each potential nominee should submit a short application which answers up to three questions. Based on the information submitted, each entry will then be reviewed on its own merits by a closed and anonymous panel of industry judges, ensuring that the awards are a true reflection of business excellence in live music.

This entry process is an opportunity to highlight your key achievements and successes. This is your chance to bring attention to your business and its activities, getting deserved recognition and reward from others both in the live music business and beyond. This guide will give you an overview of all categories including their criteria, and how the awards are judged.
