About Us

WHO WE ARE

We are Europe’s largest independent music booking agency specialising in performances at one-off private, brand and corporate events. Our history of producing music festivals and managing lots of major artists has provided us with impeccable artist contacts, credibility and experience. We work directly with over 500 major artists and DJs for their event performances, some on an exclusive basis and we are usually able to secure the best deals and arrangements. We also take care of all the contracting, logistics and artist management, often folding seamlessly into the event or production team. UKNY has a client base ranging from blue chip corporations to elite party planners and luxury brands to HNW private families. Watch our showreel highlighting just a few of our bookings and events.

OUR STORY

When creating UKNY Music, founder Zak Biddu’s dream was to build a specialist music agency unlike any other, working on behalf of private individuals and corporate brands giving them better treatment and artist deals than they were traditionally getting from the music industry. With over 20 years experience as a major label artist manager and record executive, Zak has worked with some of the world’s biggest artists including production with Pharrell Williams, working at Def Jam alongside Jay Z and Sir Paul McCartney on his touring. Zak also discovered and managed Ladyhawke, Lady Sovereign and produced Snow Patrol; has had multiple platinum records and worked at all the major labels meaning his knowledge of the industry is second-to-none. Fast-forward over a decade and today UKNY Music is doing just that; connecting our clients with the biggest names in music and entertainment to create and deliver spectacular events.
