The Grammy Museum and Recording Academy have announced the Grammy Hall of Fame is returning on its 50th anniversary after a two-year hiatus.

The return will be celebrated with an inaugural gala and concert on May 21, 2024 at the NOVO Theater in Los Angeles. The Grammy Hall of Fame was established by the Recording Academy’s National Trustees in 1973 to honor recordings of lasting qualitative or historical significance that are at least 25 years old.

Inductees are selected annually by a special member committee of professionals from all branches of the recording arts with final ratification by the Recording Academy’s National Board of Trustees.

This year the Hall will bring forth 10 new inducted recordings—four albums and six singles. There are currently 1,152 inducted recordings in the Grammy Hall of Fame. Inductees for 2024 will be announced at a later date.

The Grammy Hall of Fame Gala will be the first of what will become an annual event, including a red carpet and VIP reception on the Ray Charles Terrace at the Grammy Museum followed by a one-of-a-kind concert at the NOVO Theater in downtown Los Angeles.

Produced by longtime Executive Producer of the Grammy Awards, Ken Ehrlich, along with Chantel Sausedo and Ron Basile. Musical Direction by globally renowned producer and keyboardist Greg Phillinganes. Tickets and performers will be announced at a later date.

The Grammy Museum is currently celebrating its 15th anniversary as a non-profit organization dedicated to celebrating and exploring music from yesterday and today to inspire the music of tomorrow through exhibits, education, grants, preservation initiatives, and public programming.

Paying tribute to our collective musical heritage, the Museum values and celebrates the dynamic connection in people’s diverse backgrounds and music’s many genres, telling stories that inspire us, and creative expression that leads change in our industry.

The Recording Academy initially paused its honorary awards programs for a year in 2021, extending that hiatus another year. The pause came as the Recording Academy announced it was re-tooling the whole process of inducting recordings. The two-year hiatus is the first time the Recording Academy suspended the honors ceremony.
