Name: Peter Thomsen
Company: Kilimanjaro Live
Based in: London
Can you tell us a bit about the company’s history and its roster? Kilimanjaro is one of the biggest national promoters in UK and we celebrated our 10 year anniversary last year. Among the artists we work with are Ed Sheeran, Bastille, Marilyn Manson, Red Hot Chili Peppers, Catfish and the Bottlemen, Craig David, and many more.
– and a bit about the acts you personally work with at this moment? I’ve been working at Kili as the new promoter for almost a year, slowly building my roster of new, exciting acts such as Omar Apollo, Sunset Rollercoaster, Lowly, Talulah Ruby, and Dutchkid.
What was the moment you decided you wanted to work with music? It’s more that the moment hasn’t come yet, where I’ve doubted I wanted to work with music.
Which acts are you looking forward to seeing the most at this year’s SPOT? Really looking forward to seeing Selma Judith! Also Athletic Progression, KOPS, Alexander Oscar, Collider, Nicklas Sahl… so many.
Best show you’ve ever seen hands down? Has got to be Coldplay at Roskilde Festival in 2009. Bit of a cheesy one but 60.000+ people at Orange Stage singing along to Viva La Vida in perfect sunset was special.
