Last year it was announced that the 2016 Brit Award winners will be handed a trophy designed by artist Pam Hogg. Hogg follows in the footsteps of Damien Hirst and Tracey Emin in designing a Brits trophy.

Singer-songwriter Jack Garratt will pick up the Brits Critics’ Choice Award at the event.

Justin Bieber’s ‘Purpose’ world tour arrives in the UK in October 2016 while Coldplay will play a series of stadium shows in the summer. Chris Martin and his band will also play the NFL Super Bowl 2016 on February 7.
