Hi, i’m Adam.
I am 24 year old live music freelancer and Creative Sound graduate living in Cardiff. I have worked as a live music freelancer for the past 3 years promoting and managing events across South/West Wales as well as working and developing music festivals in the country. I have a keen interest in discovering new artists from around the world and specialise in promoting interesting and creative artists, showcasing them at my events.
I started to work with Sŵn in 2010 when i became their first work experience whilst at university. I volunteered throughout the year and was asked to become Sŵn Presents festival production assistant in 2012 and 2013. I have a strong understanding of production within a festival and have proven to be hard working and extremely dedicated to the role. I have been Sŵn event rep for over 50 Sŵn shows from 100 - 1000 capacities.
In March of 2014 I started to work with Sŵn full time to run Sŵn Presents events and work closely with John Rostron and Huw Stephens to book Sŵn Festival 2014.
Holy Boredom Festival 2014
I started to organise my own events in Cardiff in 2010 under the name Balderdash Presents. I worked closely with a wide range of Welsh artists for 2 years working with the venues Gŵdihw and Cardiff Arts Institute. In 2013 I started to promote and build a relationship with Clwb ifor Bach promoting sell out events from Thee Oh Sees to Akron/Family (best selling European show).
In 2014 I announced Holy Boredom Festival which is a 2-day festival at Clwb Ifor Bach specialising in experimental and interesting sounds and will feature artists from around the world. This will be the first of its kind in the country.
