Formed in 2008, Kilimanjaro Live is a live music and entertainment events promoter and producer, staging over 700 very diverse shows each year.
We work with a wide variety of live music artists in numerous venues across the UK and occasionally overseas, from grass roots venues to football stadiums and everything in between. We take particular pride in spotting talent and working closely with agents, managers and record labels to help to nurture an artist’s career. In the last couple of years we have worked with long established acts such as Andrea Bocelli, Simply Red, Red Hot Chili Peppers, Donny Osmond, Marilyn Manson, Craig David and Stereophonics as well as with more recently established artists such as Ed Sheeran, Frank Carter, Don Broco, The 1975, Bastille, Catfish and the Bottlemen, Maggie Rogers, Pinegrove, Julia Jacklin, Jess Glynne, Arch Enemy and Birdy. We also regularly book, promote and produce two outdoor concert series each summer, Kew the Music at Kew Royal Botanic Gardens and Live at Chelsea which takes place at the Royal Hospital Chelsea, home of the Chelsea Pensioners and in conjunction with The O2 run an indoor festival, Stone Free Festival.
As well as the more traditional live music route, we are at the forefront of working with new stars from the digital and online worlds helping them develop live shows and where relevant making the move into the wider music business. Artists such as Emma Blackery, Dodie, Bethan Ledley, Miranda Sings and Jacob Sartorius established their fan bases first on YouTube but now sell out traditional venues with Kilimanjaro’s support.
Outside of live music, we also work extensively in the comedy and spoken word space (Aziz Ansari, Jerry Seinfeld, Tim & Eric, David Cross, Mike Birbiglia, Maria Bamford, Jeff Dunham, Jim Jefferies, David Sedaris, Tig Notaro, Ira Glass and Tape Face.) Since 2012 the company has been present annually at the August Edinburgh Fringe Festival where the number of acts and shows we’ve been involved with has increased year on year. We are now firmly established as a leading promoter of acts at the Edinburgh Fringe
We can apply our skills and talents to any concept that could attract an audience and needs professional event management or consultation services – from yoga with Adrienne Mishler and Rachel Brathen, Nitro Circus action sports to the Dinosaurs in the Wild immersive experience .
Kilimanjaro is driven to establish effective and productive long term partnerships, continually providing our partners with the best and most comprehensive services to ensure success.
