By IQ on 02 Feb 2017
One of the industry’s best-known artist managers, Paul McGuinness, will join host Ed Bicknell for The Breakfast Meeting at the 29th International Live Music Conference (ILMC) on 10 March.
McGuinness founded Principle Management in 1982, managing U2 from the start of their career until 2013, during which time they won 22 Grammy Awards and sold more than 160 million albums worldwide.
He has also managed The Rapture and multiple Mercury Prize-winner PJ Harvey, and is widely known in the film business, in which he remains heavily involved.
Previous Breakfast Meeting interviewees include CAA’s Emma Banks (ILMC 26), Live Nation’s Arthur Fogel (ILMC 27) and WME’s Marc Geiger (ILMC 28).
ILMC last week unveiled its full conference agenda for 2017, including the new Festival Summit Venue Summits and panels on ticketing, direct licensing, visas, mental health and YouTubers.
