FOUNDER Mike is generally sleep deprived on a daily basis to facilitate his obsession with music. Since the early 00's Mike has been involved in many aspects of the music scene, initially promoting local shows and rock club nights, and working street teams/online promotions for Roadrunner Records. From 2008-2016 he booked all the acts for Butserfest as well as booking for many other festivals and events, and has worked numerous roles across the UK festival circuit. In 2014 Mike began focusing more on artist management and eventually Down For Life Music was created.
