Light at the end of the tunnel

Despite incredibly tough times for all of us in the Live Music Industry and news of layoffs from many of the major agencies, we are still seeing people taking the big step to launch their own companies.

VIP-News spoke to some of these new entrepreneurs including Ed Sheeran's European agent Jon Ollier who launched his new company this month and also former ATC agent Matt Hanner who started his own agency earlier this year.

Although the live industry has been turned upside down during the pandemic we believe that the emergence of new independent companies appearing on the scene coupled with the many other changes taking place will see a healthier, more creative and competitive business once things get back to normal, stimulating opportunities for more players to get a piece of the pie.

At we monitor these changes and update our databases constantly in order to give our clients the best options to locate and create new opportunities.
