Italy’s Radar Concerti acquired by All Things Live

Nordic live entertainment company All Things Live has signalled its expansion into the Italian market with the acquisition of promoter and agency Radar Concerti.

Radar Concerti, which has offices in Milan and Rome was founded in 2014 by Giorgio Riccitelli, who brought ex-Live Nation Finland senior promoter Fabrizio Pompeo on board as a partner in 2018.

The company has worked with international artists such as Idles, BadBadNotGood, Central Cee, Future Islands, FKA Twigs, the Libertines, The xx, Masego, M83, Kamasis Washington, Saint Jhn and Slowthai.

“We are thrilled to announce that we are joining the All Things Live family to accelerate Radar Concerti’s development and build on the success that we have been enjoying in recent years,” says Pompeo. “We have had a great and fruitful dialogue with the All Things Live team and cannot wait to become part of the leading entertainment company in the Nordics and contribute to the realisation of the partnership’s international ambitions.”

“Radar Concerti has built a strong position in the Italian market”

Pompeo will continue in day-to-day management alongside Riccitelli

“Radar Concerti has built a strong position in the Italian market based on our experience in national and international musical entertainment, and we will continue to scout for the best talents within the indie scene and build a solid platform for All Things Live in the Italian market by leveraging our strong connections with agents, promoters, media partners and artists,” adds Riccitelli.

The move marks the latest step in the international expansion of the All Things Live Group (ATLG), which has just strengthened its roster with the signing of international management firm Then We Take The World.

“The Radar Concerti team and their solid platform and strong relations constitute a perfect steppingstone for our ambition to make a mark for All Things Live in the Italian market,” says ATLG executive board member Kim Worsøe. “We are pleased to welcome Radar Concerti and their artists, and we look forward to growing the business together with the talented owners and employees,”

Fabrizio Pompeo joins Radar, announces new festival

Italian concert promoter Fabrizio Pompeo, most recently of Live Nation Finland, has joined Giorgio Riccitelli’s Radar Concerti as a partner.

Radar was founded in 2014 by Riccitelli after five years with Live Nation Italy, and has since grown to become one of Italy’s leading independent promoters, organising Italian shows by international acts including The xx, Foals, Grimes, Solange, Bonobo, Nothing but Thieves, M83 and FKA Twigs. It also acts as a booking agency for several up-and-coming Italian acts, including Coma Cose, Ketama 126, Hån and Lim.

As a senior promoter at Live Nation Finland, Pompeo promoted shows in Finland, the Baltics and Russia. He says by joining forces with Riccitelli, he hopes to help drive Radar on to even greater success.

“We believe our collaboration, experience and skills will help the company to grow faster in the market”

“Giorgio has done a great job with Radar,” Pompeo tells IQ, “which is now a well-established brand, focusing mainly on scouting for the best talent in both the domestic and the international indie-pop-electro scene.

“We believe our collaboration, experience and skills will help the company to grow faster in the market.”

Pompeo will be based in Milan, while Riccitelli remains in the company’s Rome office.

The first initiative by the Riccitelli-Pompeo partnership is the new Radar Festival, which will debut in Milan on 8–9 June.

The 5,000-capacity, four-stage event will have a “pop-electro-indie-trap-urban sound”, says Pompeo, who aims to “position the event in the international calendar of similar festivals”.

Radar Festival will be followed by a second new event, he adds, planned for Rome later this summer.
