Last week, Idris Elba was announced as guest presenter for this year’s Mercury Prize, while Skepta has been added to the line-up of live performers on the night.

The Hyundai Mercury Prize Awards Show will be held at Eventim Apollo, London. While Lauren Laverne returns as the official host for this year’s ceremony, actor – and occasional DJ – Elba will present the big prize.

Elba said of the news: “The Hyundai Mercury Prize is a huge moment in the music calendar and I’m so happy to be involved. It is so important that we continue to celebrate the album as a work of art and this is a special night to celebrate the incredible shortlisted artists.”


All the nominated acts – with the exception of Ed Sheeran – are expected to perform on the night.
