TPi has awarded the grime heavy-weight with the ‘Live Production of the Year’ award for his headline performance at Glastonbury Festival last summer

Stormzy‘s performance at last year’s edition of Glastonbury Festival (2019) has won TPi‘s ‘Live Production of the Year‘ Award.

Total Production International hosted the TPi Awards for the 19th time yesterday evening (February 24), at London’s Battersea Evolution.

The shortlist for the same award included Chemical Brothers – No Geography; Marco Borsato – MBDK; Muse – Simulation Theory; Rammstein – The Stadium Tour and Take That – Greatest Hits Live.

Launched in 1998, Total Production International (TPi) prides itself as being “the definitive, authoritative publication catering for the global live event production industry.”

The internationally distributed magazine primarily covers the application of sound, lighting, video, staging design and technologies in the creative environment of concert touring, theatre, festivals, live music venues and special events, no matter how big or small. We endeavour to cover all aspects of production support throughout the year.

Earlier this month, Glastonbury also won ‘Best Festival in the World’ at the NME Awards 2020, in addition to Festival organiser Emily Eavis also being awarded NME’s ‘Godlike Genius‘ Award.

The next instalment of Glastonbury Festival – which will also be the legendary festival’s 50th anniversary – will take place at Worthy Farm, Pilton, Somerset, from Wednesday 24th to Sunday 28th June.

Meanwhile, Lana Del Rey was the 4th act to be officially confirmed for playing Glastonbury later this summer and joins Taylor Swift who was the second headliner and third artist to be announced for the 2020 edition of the Festival – after Paul McCartney, and Diana Ross who was officially confirmed earlier last year as Glastonbury’s 50-anniversary ‘Legends’ slot performer.

Also confirmed for the bill are Wolf Alice who were announced as playing Glastonbury’s big 5-0 by non-other than Glasto founder, Michael Eavis himself.

Mike Skinner, Carl CoxFun Lovin’ Criminals,  Crowded House, Clairo and most recently Burna Boy are the latest big-scale artists to self-confirm for the Festival’s 2020 bill thus far.

Despite the fact that the full line-up for Glastonbury 2020 has yet to be released – all tickets for the Festival’s 50th anniversary have now sold out, with General Admission tickets selling out in 33 minutes, following Coach + Ticket Packages which sold out in just 27 minutes.

There are still ways to go to Glastonbury this year, and in addition to being able to volunteer or enter the various competitions – there will also be a resale of any cancelled tickets in the spring, with coach + ticket packages going up for resale on April 16 – followed by a general admission tickets resale on April 19.
