Mercury Prize 2020: What you need to know...

This year’s edition of the Mercury Prize is just around the corner and while the current health environment means that we won’t be seeing the usual festivities, there is still the grand prize to look forward to.

When is it?

The award ceremony will likely not be held as normal in September due to the ongoing pandemic, but the top prize itself will be announced live on the 23rd of September… so mark your calendars! Among the headliners in the running for the award are Dua Lipa, Stormzy and Laura Marling.

Girl Power

It’s a landmark year for female artists because for the first time in it’s 29 year history, female artists or female led groups outweigh males on the shortlist. Seven of the twelve albums in the running for Britain’s most prestigious music award were made by female artists, in contrast to the previous high of five.

Last Year's Winner

The 2019 edition of the Mercury Prize was awarded to the rapper Dave for his debut album Psychodrama. The young star, only 21 at the time, accepted the coveted award by performing Psycho in front of an adoring crowd.
