Biography

Rob has been promoting parties from the age of 16, putting on parties in secret locations for his mates at school, a hobby which continued when he moved to London to study at Goldsmiths in 1996. To get some proper industry experience, he got a job working for Universe on their massive Tribal Gathering raves, before moving onto homelands festival and running promotions for home nightclub in both London and Ibiza.

In 2003 he set up on his own full time, starting the hugely successful warehouse party ‘mulletover’, which grew from a 500 capacity illegal rave to a 5,000 strong international brand with parties in London, Croatia and Ibiza. In 2008, he had an ambition to move into the festival market, so started Eastern Electrics which had its initial home under railway arches in Great Suffolk Street. This event grew organically into a festival in 2012 and has been held every year since. It is now a 20,000 capacity one day festival held on the first Saturday of August.

In his spare time, Rob also operates 6 pubs in North / East London (All with Star in the name) and a street food market in Shoreditch called Last Days of Shoreditch.
