Jonathan Lomax has been appointed MD at the Solo Music Agency where he will work alongside owners Caroline and John Giddings to manage the the business and the Isle of Wight festival. His most recent position was MD of PR firm Blakeney, where he worked closely with live industry trade association alliance LIVE to raise awareness of its campaigning during the pandemic.
He said, “It was one of the privileges of my career to support the live music industry during the pandemic, when I met the most interesting and committed people. Despite everyone telling me that I was mad, I was determined to work in the industry permanently and I am thrilled that John and Caroline have taken me into the Solo family.
“I have had some great experiences in the last twenty years in public affairs and communications but this feels like the right time for a change of tack and what better place to head than the live music industry. I can’t wait to see where the journey takes me.”
Isle of Wight festival will take place on 15-18 June next year with headliners Pulp, Chemical Brothers, George Ezra and Robbie Williams.
