As part of our ongoing work with the Featured Artists Coalition, we attended the recent Artist & Manager Awards at the Troxy in Stepney. Hosted by the Music Managers Forum (MMF), guests this year included legends Brian May and Roger Taylor from Queen, as well as Placebo and Imogen Heap.
With that sort of guest list there was no chance we’d be missing out on the action – so on a soggy Thursday we headed out to the event for a night of honouring those behind the scenes in the music industry.
Brian May and Roger Taylor handed a lifetime achievement award to their life long manager, Jim Beach, while Imogen Heap picked up the Pioneer award, which (in my opinion) was thoroughly well deserved. You can read up on the other award winners here.
Our job was to promote the awards to traditional and social media, so we knuckled down and secured journalists to attend and cover the event on the night, and we implemented a social campaign on Twitter and Instagram in the build up to the Awards and at the event itself as the night unfolded.
