All the Londoners nominated for BRIT Awards this weekend

The BRITs have brought us many iconic moments over the years, from Jarvis Cocker protesting Michael Jackson and the time Madonna fell off the stage to Sam Smith’s, erm, interesting outfit choice last year. But at its core the BRITs ceremony is a brilliant celebration of British music, packed with amazing performances. 

And this year’s ceremony looks like it’ll be no different. Taking place this Saturday, March 2 at the O2, the 2024 BRITs will be hosted by Clara Amfo, Roman Kemp and Maya Jama. Performances by the likes of Kylie and Jungle are on the programme, and you can take a look at our guide to the ceremony right here

So, who will we at Time Out be backing? Well, 20 brilliant artists from across London have been nominated, from worldwide pop icon Dua Lipa and legendary rapper Stormzy to newer stars like RAYE and Olivia Dean. Without further ado, here are all the Londonders nominated at the Brit Awards 2024.
