Simon Napier-Bell is quite frankly a pop music legend.

Former manager of artists as diverse as George Michael, The Yardbirds, Sinead O’Connor, Marc Bolan, Ultravox, Boney M, Japan, Dusty Springfield, Wa Wa Nee and Candi Staton to name a few, he was the artist manager to break Wham! globally by having them play China in 1985 – the first western band to do.

He is also a best-selling author of four music books and director of three Netflix documentaries on Frank Sinatra (To Be Frank), George Michael (Portrait Of An Artist) and 50 Years Legal, marking fifty years since Britain decriminalized homosexuality.

He joins BIGSOUND for this very special Keynote event.
