Mercury Music Prize 2021 Sets Big Reveal

Michael Kiwanuka performs onstage during the 2017 Governors Ball Music Festival - Day 1 at Randall's Island on June 2, 2017 in New York City.

The Mercury Music Awards Show returns this year, with a COVIDSafe event at London’s Eventim Apollo on Sept. 9. Before that, the shortlist of 12 albums will be announced July 22, with BBC Music on board as broadcast partner.

Car manufacturer Hyundai is sponsor of this year’s Mercury Prize, which celebrates artistic achievement across British and Irish music.

The award was established as the Mercury Music Prize in 1992 by labels body the BPI and its counterpart retail association ERA (then known as BARD), as a platform to showcase the best music from the British Isles, and to fuel album sales during the slower, mid-year months.
