Jamie Anderson has been working the industry since 2008, most recently at PCL Presents in Scotland, and also has recent music management experience. At PCL, Jamie was part of stadium and arena shows by artists such as Catfish and The Bottlemen, Jack White, Noel and Liam Gallagher, Vampire Weekend, Haim, and Arcade Fire.. He has also been closely involved in the Stag & Dagger Festival in Glasgow, Scotland’s biggest multi-venue festival.

Anderson joins Kilimanjaro Live’s already well-established promoter team and will be responsible for booking and promoting his own artists as well as contributing to the Kilimanjaro festival program.

“Having known Kilimanjaro and its strong reputation in the industry for many years, I’m both honored and excited to become part of their team,” said Anderson.

Thomsen joined Kilimanjaro as an intern in 2017, and settled into the role of promoter assistant quickly. The Denmark native now has the opportunity to further develop his skills, working with new music artists and singer-songwriters, including his main passions of indie and scandi-pop.

Thomsen said, “It’s all hugely exciting for me, I can’t wait to get started and repay the trust that has been shown to me by the great Kili family.”

Kilimanjaro’s director and senior promoter Steve Tilley commented: “I’m delighted to welcome Peter and Jamie to the fold and have them join myself, Carlo Scarampi, Alan Day, Georgie Donnelly and Mark Walker in representing Kilimanjaro in the incredibly competitive live music scene of the UK.”

He added, that “these appointments are a recognition of the need for us to maintain our eyes and ears out at shows whilst also providing the best service we can to our existing clients. Peter and Jamie are here to build their own careers as well as those of the artists they bring in and we’re excited to have them on board and to be able to contribute to their development in the industry.

“I sincerely hope each of them loves working for Kilimanjaro like our whole team do and I wish them the best of luck out in the field and hope they find and develop industry relationships that allow them to fulfill their potential to the max along with that of the artists they bring into the company.”
