A true legend, and one of the most recognizable voices in the electronic music circuit, Pete Tong is set to be honored with the 30th Music Industry Trusts Award (MITS). The recognition comes due to his impressive contribution to the music and broadcast industries.

David Munns OBE, chairman of the MITS Award committee, said: ‘I am delighted that the MITS has decided to honor Pete Tong and his pre-eminent reputation in the dance music scene. For over 30 years he has been a pioneer in his field and is known worldwide for his commitment to build recognition for his music genre. Congratulations, Pete!’

The award, set to be presented on November 1st, at a gala ceremony hosted in aid of the BRIT Trust and Nordoff Robbins in The Great Room, Grosvenor House Hotel, will see Tong follow honourees such as Emma Banks, Rob Stringer, Sir Lucian Grainge, Ahmet Ertegun, Michael Eavis CBE, and Roger Daltrey CBE.

‘It is a huge honor to be given the MITS Award and to have the opportunity to highlight two exceptional charities, The BRIT Trust and Nordoff Robbins. The past year has seen the music industry suffer like never before – especially the live music and clubbing sectors, but we are strong and optimistic for the future. I proudly look forward to accepting the award at the event this November and continue to represent my industry,’ said Pete Tong himself about the award.
