Managing Director of Warner Music’s Atlantic Records UK, Damian Christian, has been announced as the new Chair of the BRIT Committee, overseeing the running of next year’s BRIT Awards. He replaces Polydor’s Tom March, who held the role for the 2022 event.

The first big decision announced for 2023 is that the ceremony will move to a Saturday night, with hopes of attracting a larger audience to the event’s TV broadcast. It’ll also mean that UK record company staff might be in a fit state to do their jobs when the next working day rolls around.

“The BRITs is the biggest night of the year for the UK music industry, and we want as many eyes on it as possible as we showcase the best and most diverse British talent”, says Christian. “Moving the show to a Saturday will breathe new life into the iconic ceremony, while also introducing a new and more engaged audience”.

The event is set to take place on 11 Feb. It will again take place at the O2 Arena and will be broadcast live by ITV.
