Kilimanjaro Live has welcomed two new promoters to its ranks.
Jamie Anderson (pictured), who previously worked at PCL Presents in Scotland, and Peter Tomsen, who joined Kili in 2017 as part of the company's internship programme, have both been added to the booking team.
Anderson has worked on shows by artists such as Catfish and The Bottlemen, Jack White, Noel Gallagher's High Flying Birds, Liam Gallagher, Vampire Weekend, Haim and Arcade Fire. He has also been closely involved in Scotland’s biggest multi-venue festival, the Stag & Dagger Festival in Glasgow.
He will be responsible for booking and promoting his own artists as well contributing to the Kilimanjaro festival programme.
“Having known Kilimanjaro and its strong reputation in the industry for many years, I’m both honoured and excited to become part of their team," said Anderson.
Previously promoter assistant, Denmark-born Tomsen will work with new music artists and singer-songwriters, including his main passions of indie and scandi-pop.
“It’s all hugely exciting for me, I can’t wait to get started and repay the trust that has been shown to me by the great Kili family," he said.
London-based Kilimanjaro, which celebrated its 10th anniversary earlier this year, was crowned Best Promoter at last month's Music Week Awards and will be promoting 15 dates of Ed Sheeran's upcoming UK stadium tour, which begins next week.
Company director and senior promoter Steve Tilley said: "I’m delighted to welcome Peter and Jamie to the fold and have them join myself, Carlo Scarampi, Alan Day, Georgie Donnelly and Mark Walker in representing Kilimanjaro in the incredibly competitive live music scene of the UK.
"We’re all immensely proud of the artists we work with and these appointments are a recognition of the need for us to maintain our eyes and ears out at shows whilst also providing the best service we can to our existing clients.
"Peter and Jamie are here to build their own careers as well as those of the artists they bring in and we’re excited to have them on board and to be able to contribute to their development in the industry. I sincerely hope each of them loves working for Kilimanjaro like our whole team do and I wish them the best of luck out in the field and hope they find and develop industry relationships that allow them to fulfil their potential to the max along with that of the artists they bring into the company.’’
