Since 1992 this prestigious “Album of the Year” award celebrates the best of UK and Irish music. The aim is to generate debates and discussions about music and to encourage a spectrum of musical genres to hit a wider audience. After enjoying a night of live performances from the UK’s top recording artists, the winner of the award will be announced. Previous winners include Skepta last year, James Blake in 2013 and The xx in 2010.
This year the Hyundai Mercury Prize will be announced at the iconic Eventim Apollo, a venue bursting with music history, perfect for celebrating the best new British music.
