NEW ADDITIONS to the conference programme at the International Live Music Conference (ILMC), set for 3-6 March at London’s Royal Garden Hotel, include legendary artiste manager Peter Rudge being interviewed by former Dire Straits manager Ed Bicknell.

In a new format for the event, Team Mumford & Sons – comprising band co-founder Ben Lovett, who also owns London venues Omeara (cap. 320) and Lafayette (600), their manager Adam Tudhope of Everybody’s and their international agent Lucy Dickins from WME – together on one panel.

Rudgem whose artiste associations have included the Rolling Stones, Roger Waters and The Who, will also join Team Mumford & Sons for a session hosted by Radio X’s John Kennedy for Future Forum, on the final day, programmed by and for young industry executives.

“With Mumford & Sons’ ongoing success, built on their sensational live career, and Peter Rudge’s roster reading like a Who’s Who of music, these will be two fascinating sessions,” says conference head Greg Parmley.

Elsewhere across the conference, guest speakers include CAA co-head Emma Banks, UTA’s head of global music David Zedeck, Live Nation Entertainment’s executive president of international touring Phil Bowdery, Book My Show CEO Ashish Hemrajani, AEG President/CEO Alex Hill and Oak View Group co-chair Jessica Koravos.

This 32nd edition of the invitation-only event will feature over 100 speakers and 40 sessions and expects more than 1,100 delegates to attend from over 50 countries.
