Live Nation UK has announced the internal move from associate to full-time promoter for Stephanie van Spronsen, who adds to the company’s female promoter base.
Rock and metal specialist van Spronsen joined the Live Nation UK promoter department in 2017, becoming the first woman to work on the Download festival booking team.
The promoter has since worked on tours for artists including J Cole, Zara Larsson, Architects and Parkway Drive, as well as helping to launch the World Wrestling Entertainment NXT UK live shows in 2018.
“It’s great news that we can add Steph to Live Nation’s growing female promoter base,” says executive president of UK Touring, Andy Copping.
“Steph’s ability and drive are phenomenal. Live Nation is wholly committed to recognising talent like hers and nurturing it for future leadership”
“Steph has been working with me on Download and her ability and drive are phenomenal. Live Nation is wholly committed to recognising talent like hers and nurturing it for future leadership,” adds Copping.
“Our long-term investment applies as much to our promoters as it does to our artists,” says Denis Desmond, chairman of Live Nation UK and Ireland. “The UK team just gets stronger and stronger and I am delighted for Steph and excited for Live Nation.”
Van Spronsen began her career at Visible Noise records, working with acts such as Bring Me the Horizon and Bullet For My Valentine. Joining specialist rock PR agency, The Noise Cartel, van Spronsen worked with Alice Cooper, Asking Alexandria and Frank Carter and the Rattlesnakes, as well as overseeing festivals including Sonisphere, Bloodstock and Hellfest.
