Registration is now open for Music Mudder 2020, the second edition of the UK industry charity event, taking place on Friday 11 September, organisers announced today.
“We are incredibly excited to announce that Music Mudder is set to return on Friday 11 September 2020,” explains Paradigm booker and Music Mudder spokesperson Lucy Putman. “We have a brand new site in Surrey, where you can expect a more challenging course, with some exciting new obstacles, and a little less running – but with a lot more water and mud!”
A limited number of team spaces are available for Music Mudder 2020. Full details are available from the event website, www.music-mudder.com.
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.
“With nine months to go, it’s the perfect excuse to get training, limber up, and begin fundraising”
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.
“For the second year running, the event is in aid of the wonderful music therapy charity Nordoff Robbins, who focus on enriching the lives of people with life-limiting illnesses, disabilities and feelings of isolation with the power of music,” continues Putman. “We raised a staggering £62,000 in 2019, and hope to smash that amount in 2020.
“With nine months to go, it’s the perfect excuse to get training, limber up and begin fundraising. It promises to be a brilliant day!”
