We are pleased to announce that Metallica has donated their 1 million Swedish Kronor prize money, awarded last week when they became the 2018 Polar Music Prize Laureate, to three charities. 50% is given to the Stockholm City Mission, which supports the homeless in Stockholm, 25% to the World Childhood Foundation, founded by HM Queen Silvia of Sweden, and 25% to the Afghanistan National Institute of Music, also a recipient of this year’s Polar Music Prize.
