The Skiddle Newsflash
The Skiddle Newsflash is back! A few weeks ago, you might remember that we compiled a collection of the news articles we’d published on the Promotion Centre Blog that week.
Kicking off this week’s newsflash is the news that this year, live music revenue is set to surpass the pre-pandemic from 2019 numbers. Read here.
Elsewhere, NTIA and Parklife Festival co-founder Sacha Lord has issued a joint letter to the Home Office over the recent drug testing U-turn. Read here.
We’re always aiming to bring you the most relevant event industry news, so keep an eye out on the Promotion Centre blog for more updates.
Reggae Land Interview
Since 2021, Reggae Land have brought bass, rhythm and good vibes to Milton Keynes. Over the past two years, they’ve brought artists like Julian Marley & The Uprising, Aswad, Janet Kay and Channel One Soundsystem to the area, encompassing the many styles of reggae and dub on a large scale.
But things are changing. For this year’s edition, the festival will expand, moving from Campbell Park to the 65,000-capacity National Bowl.
Reggae Land’s expansion means more rhythm, more bass and more good vibes for reggae enthusiasts from Britain and beyond. But what goes into an operation like this? We wanted to find out the challenges and surprises that come from such a move.
So, with that in mind, we caught up with Jorge Meehan, Reggae Land co-founder, to discuss operational challenges, the cost of living crisis and much more. Click here to read all about it.
Drive sales with our Discount Code feature
Everyone loves a discount, right?
Money off something you like makes the day that little bit brighter, and recently, we added the ability to generate discount codes and leave your attendees with a spring in their step.
If you’re looking to drive sales, discount codes can help. You could offer a discount for a limited time, potentially motivating attendees who were weighing up your event versus another to purchase a ticket.

Over the course of the next few months, we’ll be speaking to the many heads that make up the Skiddle team.
