Fairmont at Abbey Road

Abbey Road Studios and Fairmont Hotels & Resorts are delighted to announce the creation of Center Stage, an exciting new music programme that supports the talents of tomorrow, pairs emerging and established artists and provides studio time and suite time to foster musical collaboration and mentor the creative process.

Over the next three years, Fairmont, in partnership with Abbey Road Studios, will provide 1000 hours of studio time and 1000 hours of suite time to up-and-coming artists across the globe, while documenting their artistic journeys – from writing and recording to live performances.

The Center Stage programme launched at the Beaufort Bar at The Savoy London, a Fairmont Managed Hotel, featuring special performances by Rema and 0207 Def Jam’s rising star, Debbie.

Center Stage is designed to not only identify new musical talent, but also offer tools and initiatives to support emerging artists during the launch and development of their careers. This includes our very own annual Amplify festival – designed to inspire and empower the next generation of creators featuring masterclasses, interactive sessions, workshops, Q&As and live talks with industry leaders who share their knowledge and provide insight into the music business.

Jeremy Huffelmann, General Manager ARS:

“Fairmont has a long history of supporting the arts and musicians, which is why we are happy to support Center Stage and its efforts to find and develop new and exciting talent… We believe it is so important to cast a wide net and foster emerging artists from around the world who might not otherwise have a platform – helping them to reach higher levels in their careers and providing them with opportunities to showcase their talent.”
