Live Music Business Awards – Latitude wins Best Medium Festival Award

Last Thursday at the Radisson Blu Portman Hotel in London the Live Music Business Awards took place. Now in its fourth year, this event is the only one rewarding the people in the UK’s music business – from promoters to festival organisers – who show talent, passion and outstanding performances.

The Live Music Business Awards is part of a series of other live music- related initiatives. The Awards are produced by Live UK Events Ltd, organiser of the annual conference and networking event LIVE UK Summit. The sister company Audience Media produces publications for the UK and global contemporary live music industries.
