Universal Music Brits party 2014


The Brits, the biggest night in British music, took place last week and Universal Music celebrated in style with a little help from Soho House and Bacardi, as well as a few special guests.

Soul II Soul’s Jazzie B and Island staffers Alex and Fletch warmed up the crowd at the pop up venue under Waterloo bridge, before Katy Perry, Ellie Goulding and Lorde took to the decks for a surprise DJ set which sent the dance floor wild.

The girls played some of the year’s biggest hits, including a couple of their own tracks, which kept the floor moving in to the small hours.

Award winners, Ellie Goulding and Lorde, received rapturous applause having just won female artist and Lorde for international female artist respectively. Bastille were in the crowd celebrating their best breakthrough act Brit and Sam Smith made an appearance after his critics’ choice win.

Check out the video below.
