Job Description

About us

Free From Sleep is a Talent Booking company which bridges the gap between independent electronic music brands and London’s increasingly competitive events market. As a platform with a wide knowledge of how to help labels and collectives fulfil their potential in London by creating sell-out events, we’re looking to add an enthusiastic individual with extensive knowledge of social media and electronic music to our close-knit team.

Working with some of the biggest venues in London from Steelyard, Village Underground, fabric and Egg LDN to smaller, intimate spaces like Pickle Factory, Free From Sleep is on hand to create bespoke events for both established and emerging brands. Covering a range of sounds from long-running imprints Metalheadz, Virus Recordings, Technique, Sentry Records to up-and-coming platforms Deeprot, MOTZ and many more, Free From Sleep nurtures a wide spectrum of the UK’s electronic music collectives. Artists including Four Owls, Bcee, Hybrid Minds, Ocean Wisdom, Mala, Youngsta, Channel One, The Heatwave, Randomer, Manni Dee and Clouds are just some of the producers and DJ’s on the FFS repertoire from the UK’s drum’n’bass, dubstep and techno realms.
