After a successful debut this year, UK industry charity event Music Mudder is set to return in 2020.

Taking place on the morning of 13 September, the inaugural Music Mudder consisted of a 10km (6.2mi) run and 20 military-style obstacles. Originally conceived as a team-building exercise by Paradigm agent Tom Schroeder, it soon grew into a wider event, with companies sending teams of ten to compete at Bromley Golf Centre in south London.

“2020 will be far more challenging and a lot more muddy”

Paradigm booker Lucy Putman tells IQ: “After an incredible first year, Music Mudder is set to return on Friday 11 September 2020. We have a new course for next year, which is set to be far more challenging and a lot more muddy. We’ll be doing it all to raise money for the fantastic music therapy charity, Nordoff Robbins.”

Companies from across the British music industry, including live businesses AEG Presents, CAA, Columbo Group, Dice, Echo Location Talent, ITG, Kilimanjaro Live, Live Nation, Solo Agency, UTA and WME, took part in Music Mudder 2019, raising more than £50,000 for music charity Nordoff Robbins.

UK industry gets dirty for Nordoff Robbins
