The MJR Group, UK-based event promoter and venue operator, is pleased to announce that leading club night brand, Propaganda, will be integrated into the group.
The addition reinforces MJR’s approach as a multi-faceted entertainment provider having recently announced the acquisition of the theatrical production company Imagine This and producing Marvel’s Avengers S.T.A.T.I.O.N in London and now onto Cardiff.
Richard Buck, founder and CEO of The MJR Group states:
“I am delighted to bring Propaganda on board. Our two companies have worked in partnership for several years now. Propaganda is highly regarded for its club night offerings and leads the way in its digital engagement with club-goers . Our common values and vision were recognised from day one, and it was only a matter of time before we made the commitment to join forces.”
As part of the move, Dan Ickowitz-Seidler, founder of Propaganda, becomes Chief Operating Officer for The MJR Group tasked with driving forward MJR’s venue portfolio as well as the Propaganda brand.
“I am thrilled for Propaganda to be joining the MJR Group. Having worked alongside the company with our jointly owned venues for several years, I am really looking forward to becoming the MJR Group’s COO and working closer with Richard Buck to help continue the groups’ fantastic growth trajectory. There are also some great opportunities to continue growing Propaganda in the UK and abroad to ensure we continue as one of the most recognised indie music brands.”
Propaganda is the UK’s biggest weekly club night, with fifteen weekly events across the country. Propaganda has also promoted events in America, Australia, Brazil and Ibiza. Every week around 15,000 people attend Propaganda across the globe. Propaganda has become one of the UK’s most recognised club brands and a household name amongst millennials. Previous guests at the night include Ed Sheeran, Mumford & Sons, James Corden, Calvin Harris, Bastille, Greg James and even Usain Bolt! Propaganda co-owns several venues including Tramshed in Cardiff and The Warehouse in Leeds. It also operates Propaganda Records and released Yungblud’s first vinyl release.
