Launched in 1977, the BRIT Awards are the annual showcase for the UK music industry.
The organising company BRIT Awards limited, is a fully owned subsidiary of the BPI.
Both the BRITs and sister event the Classic BRIT Awards celebrate not just the biggest successes in music but also operate as an important platform to introduce and promote new talent.
Substantial proceeds from both shows go to the BRIT Trust, the charitable arm of the BPI that has donated almost £15m to charitable causes nationwide, since its foundation in 1989.
The main BRIT Awards show is televised in the UK each February. It is also exported to foreign markets to showcase the cream of British talent and is an essential component in raising UK acts’ profiles and sales internationally.
