We knew from the day he announced it that Louis Tomlinson’s Away From Home Festival was going to be something very special. And it seems the industry agrees as the Away From Home Festival has been nominated for a TPi award.
It’s been nominated in the ‘live production of the year’ category which is full of very worthy winners including Billie Eilish, Mayday, the 5G Festival and Tame Impala.
The TPi Awards highlight those who we as fans going to an event barely consider, the people behind the scenes that make your faves show happen.
From lighting to staging design, set construction, tour production, tour managers, catering etc. The TPi Awards show appreciation for them all as without them all your fave would have no show for you to go to and sing your heart out and make wonderful memories.
Louis’s tour manager Mark Brightman is also nominated for the “Dennis Sheehan Tour Manager of the Year award.
This year’s awards are particularly special as it’s the first since the pandemic began and is a true celebration of all those people who kept the live events industry going. They are reintroducing two awards – namely Favourite Venue and Favourite Catering Company. As well as introducing the Green Award, which looks to highlight the efforts of companies going the extra mile to reduce the environmental impact of the industry on the planet.
To win a TPi award which honour and champions all things live event design, technology and production, would be a huge accolade for both Louis individually and the entire team which worked on bringing The Away From Home Festival to life. A huge undertaking, a free festival that was paid for by Louis himself because he wanted to give back to his fans and welcome people back to live music after the pandemic.
We will find out if Louis and the Away From Home Festival win on 23 May! You can find out more about the awards here!
