About the BPI (British Phonographic Industry) Promoting British Music
The BPI is the UK record labels’ association that promotes British music and champions the UK’s recorded music industry – the world’s fourth largest and the biggest exporter of recorded music in the world after the US. The BPI helps to safeguard the rights of its members and of all the artists, performers and record label members of collecting body PPL – who collectively create around 99 per cent of all legitimate sales and streams of music in the UK. The BPI’s membership consists of well over 400 independent labels and the UK’s three ‘major’ companies, which together account for up to 85 per cent of legitimate domestic music consumption.
UK artists account for one in eight artist albums sold worldwide. The BPI helps to promote British music overseas through numerous trade missions as well as through the Music Exports Growth Scheme, which since 2014 has awarded £3.8 million in DIT government funding in support of 242 music projects benefitting mainly independently-signed artists. The BPI provides valuable insights, training and networking with its free masterclasses and presentations and through its Insight Sessions, Wisdom Wednesday events, and its authoritative yearbook and reports.
The BPI certifies The BRIT Certified Awards – the iconic Platinum, Gold and Silver Awards Programme; co-owns the Official Charts; owns and organises The BRIT Awards with Mastercard – which, through the BPI’s charitable arm, The BRIT Trust, has helped to raise over £25m for music education and wellbeing charities, including the BRIT School, ELAM, Nordoff-Robbins music therapy, Music Support, Key4Life and Mind. The BPI is also home to the Hyundai Mercury Prize.
