The special party will feature a diverse selection of performances, to be held within Studio A and the atrium mezzanine bar and restaurant areas. Metropolis will also auction off a selection of prestigious items on the night, including a limited edition Eddie Kramer print, with all proceeds going to Nordoff Robbins Music Therapy charity.

Reflecting on the studio's past and looking ahead to its future, managing director Ian Brenchley commented: "Metropolis has always been one of the top studios in the world, featuring cutting-edge technology, a wealth of expertise and a creative hub location for the music industry and iconic artists alike. In our 20th year, we plan to take things one step further by starting a label, adding multiple new services and, in short, put the rock'n'roll back into the music industry... not a moment too soon, I might add."
