Crosstown promoters - Danny Morris, Simon Bailey, Hayley Thompson and Richard Walsh
UK - Four young industry pros have joined the team at Crosstown Concerts to ‘bring fresh vision and extend the independent promoters’ network of artists and live shows’.
Crosstown director Conal Dodds has 32 years of experience promoting live music, forming Crosstown Concerts in 2016 with fellow Director Paul Hutton. He comments, “Promoting live music has never been more vibrant, as we rise from the turmoil of the pandemic to shape a new landscape. I was keen to introduce new voices into Crosstown that face the future.
“This new breed of promoters each bring their own passion, individual ideas and ambitions that will bring progression to our business, the artists and fans. Paul Hutton is stepping back from front line promoting from the end of March to take up an advisory consultancy role, so our new team is the way forward for Crosstown. We celebrated our seventh anniversary in business earlier this month and we look forward to the next seven.”
The promoting team comprises: Hayley Thompson who ran her own website, Music Festival News, before joining Crosstown as a freelance digital marketer in 2017; Richard Walsh who joined Crosstown Concerts in January 2023 as a national promoter and is busy confirming shows across the UK; Simon Bailey, a seasoned concert promoter with over a decade of experience, and Danny Morris who promotes UK tours for the likes of The Sherlocks, Badly Drawn Boy, and John Cooper Clarke.
