This event has been and gone.

The 38th BRIT Awards takes place on 21st February 2018, and will be broadcast live on ITV from The O2 Arena, London.

Last year’s event featured performances from Little Mix, Katy Perry, The Chainsmokers & Coldplay, and Ed Sheeran and Stormzy. It reached a wider audience than ever before by expanding its digital partnerships to make the biggest night in music even more interactive, with ITV’s audience across the main show and its launch programme achieving 8.5 million in total. There were over 27 million views of BRITs performances on VEVO and YouTube within just one week.

The BRITs 2017 raised £567K for the War Child charity from all of the activity around the Awards, including BRITs Week which hosted a series of incredible live shows in the week leading up to the main event through a partnership between the BPI and AEG. Craig David, The 1975, Lianne La Havas and Basement Jaxx played across London helping to raise money for the cause.

The BRIT Awards 2017 also saw another successful partnership with Life Water. Since partnering with Life Water in 2013, The BRIT Awards have funded five clean drinking water projects that have given 4,991 people a reliable source of clean water in their community.

**Age Restriction of 13+ with under 18s to be accompanied by an adult 18+.

Featuring

Justin Timberlake

Justin Timberlake appearing at this event

One of the biggest solo stars in the world, Justin Timberlake took the music industry by storm following his departure from NSync. Often compared to legends such as Michael Jackson and Prince, Timberlake combines groundbreaking music with breathtaking live shows. Bridging the gap between pure indulgent entertainment, and cutting edge music, Timberlake's work has earned him six Grammy Awards and four Emmy Awards.

Ed Sheeran

Ed Sheeran appearing at this event

The Brit award-winning singer/songwriter from Suffolk who found fame by fusing traditional acoustic and folk melodies with hip hop beats, Sheeran has created an inimitable sound and built a massive legion of fans through his constant live gigging. Sheeran made chart history at the beginning of 2017 by being the only artist to debut two brand new singles in the top two positions, with 'Castle Of You' reaching no.2 and 'Shape Of You' reaching no.1 simultaneously, along with each individual track from his '÷' album entering the top 20 of the singles chart. He also achieved the prestigious UK Christmas no.1 spot in 2017 with 'Perfect', while the '÷' album had notched up sales of over 2 million by the end of 2017 and became the fastest-selling album by a UK male artist of all time.

Rag'N'Bone Man

Rag'N'Bone Man appearing at this event

Rag'N'Bone Man (aka Rory Graham) has a holler like hot buttered rum. Loaded with disparate and cross generational influences, the sound of Rag'N'Bone Man is both hugely idiosyncratic and massively moving. He combines a purity of spirit with his unique brand of acoustic hip-hop soul into a force which is entirely his own. He is the real deal.

Stormzy

A London-based grime MC of Ghanaian heritage, Stormzy made a swift rise in the early 2010s to become one of the U.K.'s most critically-acclaimed artists.

British-Albanian mezzo-soprano RnB queen Rita Ora has been around for a while, but came to full prominence in 2012 when she provided the vocals for DJ Fresh's 'Hot Right Now', which topped the UK singles chart.
