Michael Chugg

Executive Chairman, Chugg Entertainment (AUS)

After co-founding The Frontier Touring Company in the mid 1970s, in 2000 Michael Chugg went out on his own and founded Chugg Entertainment, from there going on to garner a reputation both internationally and locally as one of Australia’s most prominent rock promoters. Michael Chugg has promoted artists from a club shows level, through to stadiums, as well as developing and running major festivals and special events.

Michael is a well known public figure in his own right, running the PR machine for many of his tours and often being the media's "go to man" for an opinion on the music industry or the state of the nation. Michael's achievements have been recognised with the plethora of awards he has received over the years, including Pollstar’s International Promoter Of The Year (1999, 2008, 2010 and 2011), CMA International Talent Buyer/Promoter Award (2006), ILMC Lifetime Achievement Award (2008) and many more.
