Our Story

Beginnings

Beginnings

Crosstown formed in March 2016 – a venture between national promoters Paul Hutton and Conal Dodds, and businessman Fraser Duffin. Sharing a love of live music and a desire to promote life-affirming concerts at a fair price to the general public, the business has gone from strength to strength.

Within 18 months the company has staged over 300 concerts, from tiny clubs to open air festivals. Massive Attack was the company’s first open air show in September 2016 in Bristol to 30,000 people, Seasick Steve was the first Crosstown arena show at SSE Arena Wembley in October  2016. 

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.
