The Benefit of Entertaining Clients at Music Events

21 May 2024

with our Head of Sales, Matt Smith

For those who have worked with me over the years, know that my biggest passions are sport and music. I’ve been lucky enough to go to Glastonbury three times and it was genuinely life-changing.

Entertaining clients at music events is a brilliant way to spend a day or an evening.  There is no better way of breaking down the barriers of a professional relationship than screaming lyrics at the top of your voice – coupled with the euphoric feeling of that endorphin release, concerts and gigs really do create unforgettable moments.

In my nine years at AOK Events, I have never seen demand for an event like we have for Taylor Swift’s Eras Tour in London this June and August. It’s been incredible. 

However, Miss Swift is not the only act to grace the hallowed turf of Wembley Stadium this year.  We are blissed with an A* line-up, including “The Boss” – Bruce Springsteen, AC/DC and Green Day.  A real mixed bag of talent to scratch every itch!

How about combining two top class hospitality events?  Race nights are becoming more & more popular, year-on-year. Goodwood Racecourse run their annual ‘Three Friday Nights’, where they will host an evening of top-class racing, followed by DJ sets from the likes of Craig David and Gok Wan.  

Ascot, Epsom, Sandown and Kempton all offer similar race days and nights with live music, coupling VIP hospitality with incredible entertainment provided by horse jockeys and disc jockeys!

  • CRAIG DAVID – 7th June 2024
  • GOK WAN – 14th June 2024
  • DIMITRI – 21st June 2024

The hospitality at Hampton Court Palace Festival is exceptional, starting with a welcome drink on the lawn and ending in a breathtaking performance in the intimate courtyards of the palace. In addition, the dinner is served inside the Banquet Hall where Henry VIII once dined himself.

This year’s series of concerts will take place from the 11th – 22nd June 2024. This year’s line up includes:
