Following the success of the event, Al Webber, Co-Founder of The Other Songs has announced plans for its return next year, saying: “It was a surprisingly successful year one — songwriters sold out The London Palladium, raised £65,000 for music charities and members of the public became obsessed with music publishing! Therefore, I am delighted to announce that we'll be doing it all over again next year during Ivors Week 2024!"

The Other Songs Live was sponsored by The BPI, WME, Tysers Insurance and Risk Management Solutions, Warner Chappell Music, ATM, MPA, UMPG and ASCAP.
