We are delighted to share with you a brand new partnership!
We’ve teamed up with the UK’s most prestigious festival awards event, alongside ticket distributor Ticketmaster and social media giant TikTok.
Held on 6th December 2022 at Manchester’s Freight Island, the UK Festival Awards is the only fully festival focussed awards that allow fans to vote for their favourite events, and it is back for its 17th edition.
As the chosen charity partner, this event brings stacks of opportunity for our foundation, and we’re here for it!
On the night, we will be sharing a video to highlight our work, we’ll be throwing THE after party, and as sponsors of an award, our founder Jonny will be on presentation duties.
Fully embracing the LNADJ ethos and making the most of our industry experience, UK Festival Awards have invited us to have a representative on the panel to choose award winners.
We’re looking forward to recognising and championing people’s hard work in the music and events industry.
We hope this partnership will help us grow as a charity, enabling us to create new Festival Partnerships.
Recently, over £16,000 was raised to build wells across Africa and India from the Secret Garden Party 2022, a collaboration that saw £1 added to the cost of tickets. All proceeds will support LNADJ’s future campaigns, such as the ‘Have A Drink On Us’ and ‘Get Equipped,’ our groundbreaking initiative to collect surplus DJ and production equipment.
Jonny Lee, Founder of LNADJ, said: “We are delighted to be the charity partner of the UK Festival Awards and be part of an exciting evening celebrating the incredible achievements and hard work of people within the music industry. It promises to be a fantastic night recognising the large-scale events that take a lot of time, energy and passion. We can’t wait to be involved and spread the news of our fundraising efforts that help change the lives of young people.”
The UK Festival Awards present the ideal opportunity for festival organisers and suppliers to get together and reflect on the past season whilst looking forward to the next. The awards themselves will be decided by either fan votes, an expert panel, or a combination of both in categories including Best Major Festival, Outstanding Contribution and, for one year only, the Perfect Pivot Award for the festival business that applied its skills to alternative activity during the Covid closure.
We simply cannot wait!
