Andy Inglis - Artist Manager, Tour Manager and MD, 5000

Andy Inglis is an artist manager, tour manager, and lecturer in the live music industry.  His career began in 1990 when the dance scene kicked off in Scotland, DJing and running raves around the country.  He started managing bands, set up small electronic labels, and jumped off Metallica’s tour bus roof in 1991 like an idiot, breaking his ankle.  He moved to London in 1997, continued to manage bands, run small electronic labels, and became The Fly magazine’s Live and Regional editor, a role he held for 14 years.

After a spell running the customer service department of an online music retailer, he co-founded a live music venue in London – The Luminaire – which won London Venue of The Year and UK Venue of The Year in ITS first two years.  He booked Norway’s biggest and oldest music festival (right before it was declared bankrupt) and has spent two years travelling the world with Savages as their tour manager.

He now manages and tour manages the Mercury Prize-nominated artist East India Youth, and lectures around the UK and mainland Europe.  He would universally ban guest lists, encores and cover versions.

Andy previously delivered MusicTank’s successful live course, Get Plugged In: Live Music, Promotion and Venue Management in London, Cardiff and Gateshead.
