Whynot! Live managing director Stuart Knight on Glastonbury, law school and hidden tattoos.

My Event World - Stuart Knight

I got into the event industry because I worked in a record shop when I was young, started putting on local bands and managing acts.  I moved to London and the role expanded allowing me to move to the USA where I managed events, brands and music.

I have worked here since 2009.

I was attracted to this particular role because whynot! gives me the opportunity to work with some great brands and also deliver some of things I wanted to do. 

Not many people know that I have hidden tattoos.

My worst experience at an event was getting my nose broken at a Napalm Death gig.

If there’s one thing I’ve learnt it’s never trust a hippy.

The best event I’ve been involved in was Malaysia Kitchen at Trafalgar Square.

If I could do it all over again I would go to law school.

The one thing I can’t stand is apathy masquerading as cool.

Outside of work I spend my time with my children.

If money were no object I could make some of my event dreams a reality.

The one event I will never miss is Glastonbury

The next 12 months will be interesting to see how the situation in the east will affect events and travel.

If I could switch places with anyone else in the industry it would be Micheal Eavis.

If I ruled the event industry I’d strive to create the best experience for the consumer and the broadest value for my brand partners to ultimately achieve the same goal.
