The opportunity to vote at BRIT Awards 2017 has come about thanks to Southampton Solent University’s new Music Academic Partnership with UK Music, and we are one of only a small handful of universities able to offer this unique experience to students.

Jo Howarth from BA (Hons) Music Management was one of the students chosen to vote.

There’s only 1000 people on the panel, and they’re all industry professionals from all walks of life and areas of the industry, so it was such an honour to be asked.

Jo, “Last year, I was asked to become a part of the BRITS Voting Academy in 2017. There’s only 1000 people on the panel, and they’re all industry professionals from all walks of life and areas of the industry, so it was such an honour to be asked. The second round of voting opens later this week, and I’m really excited to see if my votes have made any of my favourite artists winners! “

 

Brits Awards 2017 take place on Wednesday, 22nd February 2017.

Jo Howarth also runs her own management company How Art Music.
