Votes have also been pouring in for the Oscars for the live music industry, the Arthur Awards. All ILMC members and IQ subscribers are eligible to vote for their favourite agent, venue, promoter and more here. Voting closes on Friday 19 February at 18.00 GMT.

An invitation-only event for live music professionals, ILMC takes place from 3–6 March at the Royal Garden Hotel in Kensington, London. The conference always sells out in advance, with 1,000 delegates in attendance; other sessions already announced this year include workshops with Google, YouTube and Twitter and panels on festivals, venues, ticketing, loyalty, show safety and new technology.

A full agenda was announced earlier this month.
