Our Story

Formed in 2016, Crosstown Concerts is a venture between promoters Paul Hutton and Conal Dodds, and businessman Fraser Duffin. Inspired to promote life-affirming concerts at a fair price, Crosstown has gone from strength to strength. Now in its third year and employing 10 staff, the company has staged 500+ concerts including The Downs*Bristol festival, OnBlackheath (2017), arenas with Seasick Steve, Nick Cave, Pixies, Noel Gallagher’s High Flying Birds , Super Furry Animals, and tours with Lana Del Rey, Kano, The Vaccines, The Wombats, Franz Ferdinand, The Breeders, Teenage Fanclub, Death Cab for Cutie, Belle & Sebastian, George Ezra, Patti Smith, Savages, Agnes Obel, Kiefer Sutherland, Sigur Ros, Tricky and many more!

Ethos

Ethos

Ultimately our priority is to promote great artists and give people memorable life experiences. We are bold and committed in our approach, and are looking forward to creating many unique moments for artists and their fans.

Mission

Mission

The most important people to us are the general public; they pay our salaries by purchasing concert tickets, and for too long they have not been treated with the respect they deserve. One of the key areas we will be tackling is secondary ticketing, which has a huge negative impact on the UK live music scene.

We are committed to tackling the problems surrounding the resale of tickets and providing fans with better-than-ever live experiences. To that end, See Tickets will be our exclusive primary ticketing partner for all events.
