DHP Family & Kilimanjaro Live to jointly receive award
We are delighted to have been awarded the FanFair Alliance Award for Outstanding Contribution to Live Music alongside Kilimanjaro Live. The Music Managers Forum (MMF) and Featured Artists Coalition (FAC) have just announced that we will receive the award at the upcoming Artist & Manager Awards (A&MA’s) on November 14th at Bloomsbury Big Top.
On the back of a hugely successful campaign against industrial-scale online ticket touting, the FanFair award celebrates a business or individual who has promoted ethical business practices and pioneered innovative live music strategies on behalf of artists. Created by the Alliance in partnership with the MMF and FAC, the award acknowledges the high profile anti-touting initiatives of us and Kilimanjaro, and our commitment to fairer ticketing for UK audiences.
Daniel Ealam, Director of Live at DHP Family, said:
“We are all so proud at DHP Family to accept this award alongside everyone at Kilimanjaro. Seeing in person the real distress and negative impact that unethical secondary sites cause to the lives of music fans, and also our industry as a whole, it was a no brainer to do all we could to support our artists in getting THEIR tickets into the hands of THEIR fans. While mass-scale online ticket touting still exists we’ll continue to do all we can to support the fight and we thank the MMF and FAC, not only for this award, but also for their vital support in this process.”
