London-based festival SW4 have announced they'll be campaigning to have British DJ Carl Cox awarded an MBE.
According to a press release from SW4, the festival is “calling for Carl to be rewarded for four decades of devoting himself to his art form and dedicating his life to spreading the sounds of UK house and techno to the four corners of the planet.”
The MBE honours system recognises people who have either made achievements in public life or committed themselves to serving and helping Britain.
Fans of Carl can help his nomination for an MBE via a petition that will close on Sunday 10th July. The page can also be used by supporters of the campaign to share their own stories and memories of witnessing Carl over the years.
For more information on how to join the petition, head to the SW4 website. Carl Cox plays South West Four on Clapham Common, London on Sunday 28th August.
