Shooting Star provides artist and production management for international touring musicians. Based in London & Somerset. Since 2002, we’ve toured the world producing shows for artists like Massive Attack, Sigur Rós, Leftfield, The Darkness, and Grace Jones. Reviewing her 2008 show at Royal Festival Hall, the Independent noted ‘production and attention to detail are breathtaking.’

In 2015 we took on the role of area organizer for Glastonbury Festival Other Stage, after technical management of Park Stage since 2011.

The Darkness, who we manage, just broadcast their first live streamed show to critical acclaim, after releasing their 6th studio album, the top ten ‘Easter is Cancelled’ with Cooking Vinyl in 2019. 

We continue to work on BJÖRK DIGITAL, the Icelandic star’s virtual reality exhibitions in many locations including LA, Tasmania, Mexico City and Barcelona, in partnership with Immersive Audio.

We provided artist, business and production management for Shirley Collins’s Lodestar album release in 2016 and touring 2017.

And we carry on consulting to Universal Music on their live business in London.
