Once again this year, MXD are inviting several key international industry professionals to attend SPOT Festival. All of them will be joining us at the MXD Superball @ RADAR as part of the SPOT+ programme, but until the festival kicks off on May 4th, we will be bringing you brief introductions to them, including where they come from, what companies they work for, what bands they want to check out at Spot, and much more. We look forward to seeing Halina Wielognorska of Clintons.
Name: Halina Wielogorska
Title: Entertainment Lawyer
Based in: London
Can you tell us a bit about the company’s history?
The firm has been around since the 70s and became affiliated with rock & roll after picking up Jimi Hendrix as a client as well as many others after him. The firm continues to look after the best in the business as well at new hot emerging talent.
And a bit about the acts you personally work with at this moment?
I work with acts that I feel have the talent, commitment and style to stay the pace. In the past few weeks I’ve signed Kerbstaller (BMG), Mullally (Atlantic), S4U (Warner), Kojey Radical (Touch Tones).
What was the moment you decided you wanted to work with music?
The day I relocated to London from Moscow and though about how much opportunity London held.
What is your favorite Danish act?
Trentemoller is probably my favorite Danish act.
Best show ever of your life, hands down?
Crikey that’s tricky! Aphex Twin at Bloc Festival, @ Butlins Minehead. Three hours of sensory warfare.
