The Music Week awards celebrate the achievements of the UK music industry and attract execs from across the business including labels, publishers, managers, promoters, retailers and more.  At this year’s packed Grosvenor House Hotel event in London, the MQA team toasted the success of their Glastonbury table mates, Michael Eavis and daughter Emily, as they collected their award for ‘Festival of the Year’.  Eavis told MQA he’d taken his inspiration from The Bath Blues Festival (held in 1969): “I went to the Bath festival with my girlfriend – now my wife – and thought ‘I can do that’.”  And the following year he did just that!

Photographers, sporting stylish MQA t-shirts, captured the evening’s highlights, here’s a selection of images.

"We have done many blind comparisons of my original high-resolution masters with and without the MQA process. MQA is the consistent winner."

Alan Silverman, Mastering Engineer

"Digital music has given users the ability to hold “a thousand songs in their pocket” for over a decade. But that convenience came at the sacrifice of quality. MQA gives the user the ability to keep the convenience of a large library in their pocket, without sacrificing the quality of the music."
