As we gear up for the start of the summer music season, BRIT Awards organisers have announced the date for next year’s event, confirmed for Wednesday 26th February.

Set to be broadcast live on ITV1 (for the fifth year running), the announcement of the 2015 show coincides with the unveiling of new BRIT Awards chairman, Warner Music UK CEO Max Lousada. Lousada will oversee the 2015 strategy and committee that will be responsible for the creative direction of the show as well as the management of the Award categories, artist line up, voting academy and media strategy. Max succeeds Christian Tattersfield as Chairman following the 2014 campaign that saw The BRITs exposed to a larger global audience than ever before as a result of the Awards’ strongest digital campaign to date.

Speaking about his new role Max said: “The BRITs is the UK’s biggest showcase for music talent and one of the most anticipated events in the global entertainment calendar, so to lead the team behind it is both a great honour and an exciting challenge. At its heart, The BRITs is a celebration of creativity so it’s fitting that our first appointments are Es and Willo, both of whom are synonymous with artistic excellence and have collaborated with some of the world’s most exciting and inventive acts.”

In a new era for The BRITs Max will be joined by stage designer, Es Devlin and a new Creative Director, Willo Perron, to help the shape next year’s event.

Es is a multi-award winning designer who has worked with the likes of Miley Cyrus, Kanye West and Lady Gaga. Willo has worked with huge artists such as Jay Z, Rihanna and Coldplay.

Speaking about the new team, Max said: “The BRITs is the UK’s biggest showcase for music talent and one of the most anticipated events in the global entertainment calendar, so to lead the team behind it is both a great honour and an exciting challenge. At its heart, The BRITs is a celebration of creativity so it’s fitting that our first appointments are Es and Willo, both of whom are synonymous with artistic excellence and have collaborated with some of the world’s most exciting and inventive acts.”
