    About John

    John Rostron is Executive Chair of the Association of Independent Promoters, a new organisation that supports live music and club promoters across the UK. Previously he co-founded the multi-venue new music festival Sẁn with BBC DJ Huw Stephens, and was a promoter in Wales for over a decade, taking artists from grassroots music venues to Cardiff’s Motorpoint Arena before passing both ventures over in Spring 2018. He’s since worked with Sound Diplomacy on writing Cardiff’s Music City ambition; lent his expertise to deliver Independent Venue Week’s growth in Wales and continues to run the Welsh Music Prize to support new music in Wales. He also is Wales manager for Making Music, the organisation that supports leisure time musicians. He's served as Vice-Chair for the Association of Independent Festivals and a National Advisor to Arts Council Wales. When he’s not at a gig he likes running up mountains.
