“The O2 Silver Clef Awards recognise and celebrate the outstanding talent of the winning artists who through their music have touched the lives of many thousands of people,” says Chairman and Nordoff Robbins Board Of Governors member David Munns. “This event helps to raise vital funds ensuring that Nordoff Robbins is able to continue delivery music therapy to support vulnerable people across the UK and allows us the opportunity to give something back to the music industry who support us so generously throughout the year.”
Since 1976, the O2 Silver Clef Awards has raised nearly £9 million for Nordoff Robbins and has been proudly sponsored by O2 for the past ten years. It’s honoured some of the greatest names in music including U2, the Rolling Stones, Ozzy Osborne, Sir Paul McCartney, Gladys Knight, The Who, Coldplay, Iron Maiden and Florence and the Machine. The O2 Silver Clef Awards are now not only the jewel in the Nordoff Robbins fundraising crown, but also a highlight in the UK music industry’s calendar.
2016’s O2 Silver Clef Awards was a huge success raising over £600,000 for our work changing the lives of vulnerable children and adults through music.
For 2017, we’ve teamed up with the Awards to ask Ticketmaster fans to vote for their favourite live act from a shortlist of some emerging and established talent.
As well as voting for you fave live act, you will also be automatically entered into a competition to win exclusive original portraits of the act you voted for by celebrated artist Will Thompson.
So, what are you waiting for? Did Stormzy blow your mind when you saw him live, or are Iron Maiden more your bag. Vote below!
The winner of Best Live Act will be announced at a star studded ceremony on 30 June.
