“Working directly with MN2S has enabled us to efficiently programme high quality artists for our venues and festival stages with clarity and transparency. They understand what we are trying to achieve and have delivered within our timeframe, budget and expectations.”
Adam D. Bertrand
“I have been working with the MN2S team for a couple years now on various projects and can recommend them as being easy to work with, capable in their tasks and proactive in their approach. A pleasure to work with.”
[from the lead up the 2018 edition] “After looking at the music programme for the first time, it looks bloody brilliant! Tickets are also selling well too! Thanks so much for all the work you put into it and I look forward to next year’s Festival.”
Of all sizes, single- or multi-stage, around the world.
Fundraisers, brand activations, corporate and private events.
Our programming clients range from the owners of night clubs, theatres and pubs to the producers of local and international festivals. We also work with companies and charities that want to host corporate, marketing or fundraising events.
Our industry connections and our experience in identifying suitable talent make us a valuable partner in programming stand-out events. Here’s how we can support you.
We define a programming strategy to make your event or venue successful. By considering the crowd you want to attract, your budget and your goals, we can advise you on everything from your line-up to your ticket pricing.
From securing headline acts to programming entire festivals, we have the industry contacts and insight to make your event a success. We find and book the best artists for your audience and budget, consulting with you at every step.
With years of experience on both sides of the talent buying business, we secure the best acts at a fair price. We always recommend acts according to their suitability, not on how easy they are to book.
From managing bookings and paying advances, to ensuring the terms of each artist’s rider are met, we can take care of all administration. Everything from sourcing production to managing your programming budget.
Yes, we are a booking agency ourselves with diverse music rosters, but our programming service prioritizes booking you the right act. The name of their booking agent is irrelevant.
Finding exciting new talent and booking big names is that much simpler for an established brand that has solid, long-standing relationships with artists, managers and booking agents.
For us, music is much more than business. We started out as event promoters, growing our global booking agency and label services on the back of our curiosity and search for the next as-yet-undiscovered sound or voice.
Knowledge and connections may give you ideas for a great line up but securing those acts and the quality of your event come down to the quality of your project management and administration. We are meticulous.

Do you programme music festivals outside of the UK and the US?
We programme music festivals anywhere in the world. We have experience of programming events in a number of different countries, and our experience as an international booking agency means we know what’s involved in booking talent in many different countries.
Can you book me an artist who isn’t on your live music roster?
Yes, we programme events that include many artists who appear on our competitors’ rosters. We always make our programming suggestions based on your requirements and not on who is easy to contact and secure.
I’m establishing a new live music venue, can you help programme for it?
Yes, we can help you devise a programming strategy for a new live music venue. We will have a lot of questions about your objectives, your target audiences, your proposed ticket prices, and your business model. Based on that we can draw up a plan and a list of suggested artists who can bring in the right audiences for the right price.
