Project Summary

The Hyundai Mercury Prize is the highly coveted British Album of the Year Award. For the past four years LIBRARY PRODUCTIONS has been contracted to manage the stage and takes care of the full artist advance process for this highly prestigious event. In 2020 LIBRARY PRODUCTIONS were asked to take on the full Production Management for the show at a Technical Director level. In this Director role we source and engage the entire production team for the live stage show.

One of the most highly coveted awards in the British Music Industry, the live show is a key date in the music industry calendar.

The Awards night hosts live performances from the 12 shortlisted artists and takes place in front of a seated audience of some of the Music Industries most influential people, while being broadcast on television by the BBC.

We work closely with the lead client, the British Phonographic Industry, and the shows broadcast partner the BBC, to deliver a show that is programmed and managed in-line with both their needs, requirements, and expectations.

LIBRARY PRODUCTIONS provide the Production Stage and Artist Liaison team for this highly respected music awards show.
