What a night it was for Harry Styles! He swept up the big awards of the night: Song of the Year, Artist of the Year, Best Pop/R&B Act and Mastercard Album of the Year, thanks to his 2022 album ‘Harry’s House’. The album seemed to take the world by storm, with hit track ‘As It Was’ becoming a soundtrack to the summer, and proving his ability to craft a pop master peace alongside his collaborators. Now with not only two Grammy's, but four BRITS, he's definitely going to have to make some room on the shelf.
Sadly, his upcoming ‘Love On Tour’ is completely sold out, but you can join the waiting list here in case any extra tickets are released!
Isle Of Wight’s Wet Leg have been one of the biggest success stories of the past year. When their debut single ‘Chaise Longue’ was released back in June 2021, it became a viral hit. They since released their self-titled debut album in April 2022 through their label Domino, and since then have been nominated for the prestigious Mercury prize, won two Grammys and now have two BRITS under their belt too.
They are heading out on tour as support for Harry Styles later this year, and have an upcoming show at the Royal Albert Hall supporting Teenage Cancer Trust. Unfortunately these are all sold out at the moment, but be sure to join the waiting list in case any extra tickets get released. Until then, just watch their BRIT performance on repeat!
The Mancunian rapper took home the first award of the evening for Best Hip Hop/Grime/Rap Act. Last year saw him finally release his debut album 'Close To Home', which fans have been patiently waiting for since he first started releasing music back in 2017. On winning the award, he reflected on his upbringing saying 'not many people where I'm from - especially my side of Manchester - get the opportunity to stand up here and receive such an amazing gift or award'.
This summer, Aitch will be headling the iconic Manchester festival Parklife, an impressive feat for the artist. You can grab tickets now!
For the second year in a row, Becky Hill has taken home the award for 'Best Dance Act', up against a fierce group including Eliza Rose ('B.O.T.A'), Bonobo, Fred Again.. and Calvin Harris. The 28 year old from Bewdley is renowned for lending her voice to numerous number one and top ten dance singles, including hits like 'Afterglow', 'Run' and most recently off her deluxe version of album 'Only Honest On The Weekend', 'Crazy What Love Can Do'.
Late last year The 1975 released their fifth studio album 'Being Funny In A Foreign Language', an album full of 'goopy 80s guitars, pumping drums, schmaltzy saxophones, and infuriatingly good hooks' (Pitchfork) and kicked off a huge US and UK tour, which off the back of we saw plenty of hilarious Matty Healy autotuned one liners which went viral. As a frontman known to speak his mind, their BRIT acceptance speech was surprisingly tame (we imagine to the relief of the BRITS), and you hear a genuine gratefulness for receiving this award, their fourth BRIT, but the first voted for by the fans.
The French DJ and producer has had one of the most enduring, chart topping careers in the electronic scene over the last 20 years, with over 50 million album sales globally, over 37 billion streams, and seven UK number one singles. This years ceremony saw him take home his first ever BRIT award for Producer of the Year, and also perform live alongside fellow BRIT Award winner Becky Hill, Ella Henderson and Sam Ryder.
He is performing at Meo Suoeste in Portugal later this year. Tickets are on sale now!
Irish post-punk band from Dublin, Fontaines D.C, have become a household name in not just Ireland, but across the UK and the rest of the world. Since forming in 2017 they have released three studio albums, with the most recent 'Skinty Fia' achieving critical acclaim and success, with hit tracks 'Jackie Down The Line' and the magnetic 'I Love You'. While the rest of the band are on tour in Australia, guitarist Carlos O'Connell accepted the award for them, who did not join the band on tour due to his baby due to be born imminently! While this is their first BRIT Award, we certainly don't think it will be the last.
Unfortunately they don't have any upcoming UK dates, but keep an eye on this page for any upcoming announcements!
This years BRIT Rising Star winners FLO are the girl group bringing back the 90s/2000's R&B vibes that we've been missing. They make history as the first group to win this award, which in previous years has been awarded to the likes of Adele, Florence + The Machine, Sam Smith, Sam Fender and so many more, setting them amongst good company and onto a bright trajectory. Having only started to release music in 2022 with their debut single 'Cardboard Box', they immediately catapulted into the limelight gaining fans amongst SZA, Missy Elliott, Kelly Rowland and Sugababes. Their sound has something both reminiscent of the beauty of old school R&B, with their own unique and modern element.
We can't wait to see what the future holds for these young talents. Sadly they don't have any UK dates at the moment, but keep your eyes peeled!
