AC/DC, Blur and Chaka Khan are among the final winners announced for this year’s annual O2 Silver Clef Awards in London, held in aid of music-therapy charity Nordoff and Robbins.

At the 7/5 ceremony, Blur will be honored with the flagship O2 Silver Clef Award in celebration of the band’s contribution to music during its three-decade-long career. AC/DC will receive the Legend Award, acknowledging five decades of the band, while Khan will get the Global Impact Award in recognition of her 50 years of international influence.

Mark Knopfler is on the winners’ list for the Music Icon Award. British rapper Loyle Carner will take home Best Male and Jacob Collier will pick up the Innovation in Music Award. Scottish group Young Fathers will receive Best Live Act.

Previously announced winners include Jessie Ware, The 1975, Texas, Cat Burns and Ezra Collective.

The artists will receive their awards in person at a music industry lunch and ceremony held at the Grosvenor House Hotel on London’s Park Lane. The exclusive event—now in its 48th year —will raise funds for Nordoff and Robbins to support a wide range of children and adults living with autism, dementia, learning difficulties, brain injuries, life-limiting illnesses, mental health challenges, grief and trauma. In all, the awards have raised nearly £13m. Last year’s event raised more than £612k.
