TEAM DFLM


FOUNDER Mike is a narcissistic fantasist who experiences sleep deprivation on a daily basis due to his obsession with music.

Since the early 00's Mike has been involved in many aspects of the music scene including putting on shows, rock club nights and managing upcoming acts. He also previously worked street teams/online promotions for Roadrunner Records and XTaster Promotions. In 2008 he began booking for Butserfest with his first booking being You Me At Six and booked this up to and including the 10th Anniversary show in 2016 before stepping down.

Mike also assists in booking acts for other events and has worked a variety of non-music related roles on the festival circuit over the years at the likes of Boomtown Fair, Bestival, Secret Garden Party and Eden Festival. {For more information on non-music based specialist Security & Welfare services please visit: www.mgdrugsconsultancy.co.uk.}

Mike is also an avid collector and trader of physical music(over 15,000 CDs at last count) and rare music memorabilia which is now housed in two lock up storage units. When not engrossed in music Mike loves spending time with his two awesome boys and his very understanding wife.
