Kilimanjaro Live has unveiled a new branding, which reflects the rapid expansion the business has been undergoing in recent years.

16 live entertainment brands will now operate under the new umbrella company KMJ Entertainment – owned by parent group DEAG.

The companies under the KMJ umbrella “deliver a wide range of events, promoting and producing music tours, in-conversation shows, theatrical productions, comedy, and family attractions. The group also has its own ticketing platforms, plus owns, and runs the Arches at London Bridge exhibition and event space in central London,” the press release announcing the rebranding sums it up.

The rebranding follows a prolonged period of rapid growth for Kilimanjaro Live in the entertainment sector since the pandemic, and expansion into new ventures such as ticketing, festivals, spoken word, comedy, immersive experiences, family and theatrical.

Stuart Galbraith, CEO of KMJ Entertainment, a Pollstar and VenuesNow Impact International Honoree, commented: “Expansion became a natural and healthy evolution for Kilimanjaro Live as we stepped out of the pandemic and into a new landscape of live entertainment.

“Kilimanjaro Live was originally formed to provide the best live rock and pop entertainment across the UK, but as a group, we’ve now expanded into new areas and needed an umbrella name that represents and supports our growing family of companies across the live entertainment world.

“I’m very proud to see our evolution into KMJ Entertainment, with the support of our parent company, DEAG.”

Brands that will now operate under the umbrella company KMJ Entertainment are live music promoters Kilimanjaro Live, Regular Music, FORM and Singular Artists; spoken word producers Fane and How To Academy; theatrical companies Flying Music and JAS Theatricals; ticket companies Gigantic, Myticket and; festivals Belladrum Tartan Heart, Let’s Rock and Pennfest; exhibition venue Arches London Bridge and production company Kontour.

With a reach across the United Kingdom, Ireland and beyond, these businesses sell four million tickets per year, according to KMJ.
