Club night Propaganda joins the MJR Group

The MJR Group, the UK-based event promoter and venue operator, is to merge with Propaganda, integrating the leading club-night brand into the group with immediate effect.

Propaganda is the UK’s biggest weekly club night, with fifteen weekly events across the country, and has also promoted events in the US, Australia, Brazil and Ibiza. Every week, around 15,000 people attend Propaganda events across the globe.

“I am delighted to bring Propaganda on board, having worked in close partnership for several years,” says the MJR Group’s founder and CEO, Richard Buck. “Propaganda is highly regarded for its club-night offerings and leads the way in its digital engagement with clubgoers.

“Our common values and vision were recognised from day one, and it was only a matter of time before we made the commitment to join forces.”

The addition adds to Bristol-based MJR’s non-concert portfolio, following the recent acquisition of theatre producer Imagine This.

As part of the deal, Dan Ickowitz-Seidler, founder of Propaganda, becomes chief operating officer of the MJR Group, tasked with expanding both MJR’s venue portfolio and the Propaganda brand.

He comments: “I am thrilled for Propaganda to be joining the MJR Group. Having worked alongside the company with our jointly owned venues for several years, I am really looking forward to becoming the MJR Group’s COO and working closer with Richard to help continue the group’s fantastic growth trajectory.

“There are also some great opportunities to continue growing Propaganda in the UK and abroad to continue as one of the most recognised indie music brands.”
